Summary

Out-of-print for two years but still in constant demand, the "full size" Catechism of the Catholic Church is back. Only this second edition: incorporates all the final modifications made in the official Latin text of the Catechism (it's the definitive edition); provides a much more complete index (it's easier to use); contains a brand new glossary of terms (it's easier to understand); and all this new information adds up to 100 pages more than in the original edition.
