This one-of-a-kind single-volume, popular encyclopedia is based on, complements, and makes more useful and usable, the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Written for the average Catholic, it is not a simplified or "watered-down" treatment of the Faith. This comprehensive reference provides an in-depth presentation of Catholic doctrine in accord with the Magisterium of the Church. The more than 400 entries cover topics ranging from war, hope, and the Antichrist to angels, calumny, and miracles.

The 38 contributors are specialists in their fields, and include noted authors such as Archbishop Francis George. O.M.I., Father J. Augustine DiNoia, O.P., Richard Doerflinger, Scott Hahn, William E. May, and many others. A "must have" for every home, school, parish, and library.
