Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC)

June 24, 2010

This is the most recent Catholic Catechism (and the first official catechism since the 16th-century Catechism of Trent).  It was promulgated in 1992 by Pope John Paul II.  It is available online at the Vatican website here.  The style of the catechism often lacks the clarity and simplicity of earlier catechisms, such as that of Trent, which in my opinion remains the best, most concise, and most informative.  However, the CCC is a welcome antidote to many of the doctrinal errors infecting the Church today.
