It is hoped that this companion volume to the Cathechism will prove a rich source of enlightenment, inspiration and reflection for all who seek to know and understand the Catholic faith. Presents English translations of all the texts that the catechism refers to, such as Scripture, the fathers of the church, theologians, councils, papal documents, and so forth. An invaluable primer if you're interested in the history and development of doctrine, no matter what denomination you belong to.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Catholic resource  Apr 5, 2008
References cited in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. For the serious theological study of the Catehism.
An excellent addition to any library!  Jan 15, 2008
This is actually my second copy of this volume I've owned. My first was loaned along with my First Edition Catechism and sadly never returned. The value of this book is indespensible. It expands upon the references in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) and allows you to see the full reference in its context. In doing so, you begin to appreciate the chain of thought of the original authors of the CCC, as well as begin to have a broadened appreciation for the wealth of insight that two millenia of devotion has produced.

I not only highly recommend the Companion to the CCC, but it should almost be a required set for any catecumin, serious student of theology and scripture, or anyone who wants to learn with precision and depth what the true position of the Catholic Church is with regard to her doctines.
An Indispensable Guide to the Catechism  Nov 16, 2007
I bought this guide several weeks back. It is handy and actually fun to read and to thumb though it. I also bought the Compendium which is also a good tool. The Compendium is a good first look at the Catechism. Knowing the basics provide a good base to further study and appreciation of our belief as Catholic Christians in the Catechism. Does everyone require the Companion Guide? No. However, having it will not hurt if you want the details.
Awesome  Aug 30, 2006
Jesus is wonderful and the Bible, the Catechism and the Compendium are always with me. I read the catechism, then the compendium together. The footnotes are all there and all match number for number so it's easy to jump around the catechism and follow along in the compendium. It's an awesome resource and saves a lot of time. Plus, when you find something like Lumen Gentium, that you like in part in the compendium, then you have your sample of the text and can go to other resources to read more of the doc. All footnotes and scriputure quotes are there. A must have for the serious Catholic or serious study of Catholicism. It's the bomb! Peace be with you.
More than priceless!  Apr 15, 2006
The full text of all the citations in the Catechism (except those in the Bible and those quoted in full) for *all* the footnotes in the Catechism in one volume is a remarkable achievement.

Another reviewer felt that one shortcoming was that sources quoted in full in the Catechism were not repeated here. Well, yes, that might be a problem for some, but then this book is not intended to be used alone. This is a straight footnote lookup from the Catechism.

Here you have a chance to trace the thoughts of those who wrote the Catechism. It is more than merely helpful or even enlightening. It opens the door to many wonderful works, including some which are hard to find in English.

The paper used is quite heavy for a book this size (980 pages) making it quite thick. The binding, even though it is paperback, is first-rate. This book is made to be used and to last.

In addition to this book and, of course the Catechism, please take a look at "Introduction to the Catechism" by Cardinal Ratzinger (Now Pope Benedict XVI). The new "Compendium of the Catechism" released in April 2006 by the USCCB, is a superb work as well.

If you are serious about your Catholic faith and want to learn more, this will certainly help.
