Item Description...
A Brief Catechism for Adults is a little masterpiece designed for convert instructions. It was actually compiled from the notes of many Catholic priests who originally used the instructions from the first edition of the book with tens of thousands of converts. Thus, it represents the fruit of many minds. For years, it was practically the standard catechism in the U.S. and Canada for instructing people in the Catholic faith. Packed with facts and written in short, clear question-and-answer format, accompanied by brief Scripture quotes, the book is concise and to the point and shows exactly what one must believe and do in order to be saved. Using ordinary language to explain theological truths, it stresses what is required to form a correct Catholic conscience. This book gives special emphasis to marriage-since most people either save or lose their souls as married persons-showing the duties people have as spouses and parents. It includes also a list of common mortal sins, the interior design of a Catholic church, how to pray the Rosary, popular saints' names for Baptism and Confirmation, familiar Catholic prayers, and practical points on common questions that arise in an unbelieving world. A Brief Catechism for Adults is an incredible one-volume handbook on how to be a good Catholic that is at once perfect for inquirers, but also excellent for adult cradle Catholics. All Catholics need to know what is in this little book; whereas unfortunately, likely ninety-nine percent today do not For simplicity, readability, interest and completion, there is no book of its kind that comes close to A Brief Catechism for Adults.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Stripped-down catechism  Oct 16, 2004
What some dismiss as "antique theology" is in reality the eternal truths of the Catholic Faith. Fr. Cogan's book is a stripped-down Baltimore Catechism for adults, focusing on the basics of the Faith with a dash of family-focused pastoral guidance for good measure. It's withstood the test of time since its first edition fifty years ago, and the current version has been updated to reflect the teachings of the Second Vatican Council.
A Brief Catechism for Adults : A Complete Handbook on How to  Mar 30, 2002
This is an excellent book for those who profess to be Catholic and for those who wish to have a basic understanding of what Catholicism is all about.

It is a small book, packed with information but not for "pseudo-intellectuals" since it presents the Church teachings without ambiguity or apology.

A Brief Catechism for Adults: A Complete Handbook on How to  Jan 27, 2000
Antique theology. This is the Catholic Catechism before Vatican II written in the 1950's by Fr. William J. Cogan, a close friend of Senator Joe Mcarthy. This book would make good foder for anti-Catholic propaganists, its stridency, intollerance, and absloutist approach to the doctrines of the Church would frighten away anyone with an IQ over 80. This is not a thinking persons theology, but a recipe book for how to be a Catholic robot. For a short read that incorporates Vatican II try "The Seekers Catechism:The Basics of Catholicism" by Michael Francis Pennock. For a comprehensive review try "This is Our Faith" by the same author. That the Church has not yanked this book from print is worrisome. It is however a great retrospective view of American culture and the role of religion in the age of Leave it to Beaver and Father Knows Best, if you read it with that in mind it is good for a few laughs.
An excellent book for new Catholics!  Aug 19, 1999
This is an excellent book for people who are converting to Catholicism or have recently converted. It's even a good refresher book for cradle Catholics. It has a simple format that's easy to follow and the explanations are interesting and well written. The book is very faithful to the Church. Each entry has a reference to the Bible. A great Catholic book!
