Reviews - What do our customers think?
good random question Catholic resource book  Nov 15, 2007
This is a great resource for random Catholic questions- on liturgical year, ancient signs and symbols, liturgy topics, etc.
Best Book Ever  Sep 30, 2007
This is the best book ever for Catholics or anyone wanting to know about Catholicism. It's got anything you want to know in it and some things you would never think to ask. We use it as a resource book and it's full of trivia facts. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
informative but sloppy  Sep 20, 2007
The Catholic Source Book is not a text or a narrative, it is more of an extensive dictionary of Catholic practices, symbols, facts, trivia and history. I was looking forward to this third edition hoping that it would clean up a lot of typographical errors and poor graphics which plagued the second edition. Unfortuantely, this edition looks like it was rushed to print without a final proofing. The information is great and accurate but the layout suffers from inconsistencies in font and font size as well as from occasonally poorly drawn (illegible) maps, diagrams and charts. Content A+, format C.
Perfect for Catholic Education Programs  Apr 2, 2006
Even though I'm just 29, I've been in Catholic Education Programs involving Junior High and High School Students for over 15 years now, and when I first read this book, I made it one of the required readings for at least all of the catechists that I have since instructed, especially those that, over the years, have not had adequate religious instruction over the years. These are the ones that complain about reading the bible, left wondering what the point of it is, and in some cases not knowing what the Catechism is. But this book uses larger fonts, pictures, figures, and various facts about church history and saints that make Catholicism so real and interesting. And being a visual person, I love the figures explaining the Reformation, differences we have with the Protestant faith, and the sadness that came from this considering the movement originated from a sorrowful story about difficulties in politics, sinfulness, and poor practices at the time, much as the American Catholic Church has been experiencing in the past decade. But this also explains how the foundations of our faith are what we need to remember and that sinners of our faith should not deter us from the "one holy, catholic and apostolic Church" (Nicene Creed) we declare we believe in.

It's hard to summarize the elements of the Catholic faith in this book, but for the catechists that I instruct , making sure that they are responsible in understanding the faith that they are to state they believe in upon receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation, I make them read every topic we cover in our instruction, knowing that there is a chapter or section that covers this in "The Catholic Source Book." I also recommend "The Catholic Faith Handbook for Youth," by Brian Singer-Towns, et al.
a good reference  Mar 16, 2006
If you are in need of Catholic information, this is a decent book as a reference source.
