Author: by U.S. Catholic Church
Here it is – the first new Catechism of the Catholic Church in more than 400 years, a complete summary of what Catholic throughout the world believe in common. This book is the catechism (the word means “instruction”) that will serve as the standarad for all future catechisms.
The Catechism draws on the Bible, the Mass, the Sacraments, Church tradition and teaching, and the lives of saints. It comes with a complete index, footnotes and cross-references for a fuller understanding of every subject. Using the tradition of explaining what the Church believes (the Creed), what she celebrates (the Sacraments), what she lives (the Commandments), and what she prays (the Lord’s Prayer), the Catechism of the Catholic Church offers challenges for believers and answers for all those interested in learning about the mystery of the Catholic faith.
Here is a positive, coherent and contemporary map for our spiritual journey toward transformation. The Catechism of the Catholic Church is, as Pope John Paul II calls it, “a special gift.”

5. Theology of the Body for Beginners: Rediscovering the Meaning of Life, Love, Sex, and Gender
Author: by Christopher West
Divorce.Broken families.Sexual abuse.Addiction.Pornography. Same-sex “marriage.” Gender issues. Everywhere we look, we find more and more confusion about the most fundamental truths of human life. As we lose our basic understanding of the meanings of man, woman, marriage, and sex, the question becomes ever more urgent: What does it mean to be a human being?
Against this backdrop, St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body appears as a bright light in the darkness. His writings go straight to the heart of what it means to be fully humanbut they are often difficult for most of us to grasp easily.
That’s where Christopher West comes in. He covers the main points of this revolutionary teaching in a way that you can understand. You’ll see desirephysical, emotional, and spiritualin a whole new light! The first edition of this book was released in 2004 and instantly became an international best seller.
In this updated, revised, and expanded edition, you’ll have access to key insights gleaned from West’s ongoing study on the subject, as well as wisdom from Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis. You’ll also discover brand-new insights on how to respond with clarity and compassion to the gender chaos so prevalent in our world today.
6. My Catholic Faith
Author: by Louis LaRavoire
The classic 1954 edition of this fabulous catechism is available again. 193 chapters in three sections: What to Believe, What to Do, and Means of Grace. Abundant Scriptural quotations (excellent for proving Catholic Doctrine to Bible-Believing Protestants). It’s also an excellent tool for dealing with liberal Catholics because two subjects of utmost importance are thoroughly treated: the true nature of the Catholic Church (today denied by false ecumenism) and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (today obscured by the New Mass).
This catechism is known and loved by Catholics because of its timeless texts, charts, lists and graphs. Profusely and beautifully illustrated! The durable burgundy and gold-embossed hardcover makes it a family heirloom.

Archbishop-Emeritus Ramn C. Argelles also notes the book’s greatness: “I most willingly say, this book should be widely disseminated, all for God’s glory!” Why does this little book promise so much? Because it contains some of the most extraordinary teachings that Jesus has given to the world-jewels from heaven that will profoundly alter and inform the way you see your ancestry, your past, your purpose, your future, and your very salvation.
These teachings have come to us through Marino Restrepo, hailed as one of the greatest evangelizers of our time.

Author: by James L. Papandrea

The following are among the many questions he answers:If, as St. Paul says, flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God, how can our bodies enter Heaven? After death but before the final resurrection, are we simply unconscious?
What is our resurrection like? (And does it differ from Jesus Resurrection?Are ghosts real? (You’ll be surprised at what the Church Fathers have to say. What is the difference between Heaven and Paradise? Which of our parts will accompany us to Heaven (and which must be left behind)?

14. Forty Reasons I Am a Catholic
Author: by Peter Kreeft
My title explains itself. But it’s misleading. There are more than 40 reasons. In fact, there are at least ten to the 82nd power, which, I am told, is the number of atoms in the universe. And that’s just in ordinary matter, which makes up only 4.
9% of the universe, the rest being dark matter and dark energy. Each of my reasons is an independent point, so I have not organized this book by a succession of chapters or headings. After all, most readers only remember a few big ideas or separate points after reading a book.
(I’ve never heard anyone say “Oh, that was a good continuous-process-of-logically-ordered-argumentation” but I’ve often heard people say, “Oh, that was a good point.”Which takes me back to my main point: “Why are you a Catholic” is a good question.
A good question deserves a good answer. Here are forty of mine.
