Due to some problems with some of the answers in this book we no longer carry it. Hopefully, the issues will be resolved in future versions.
YOUCAT is short for Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is the official catechism for World Youth Day. Written for high-school age people and young adults, YOUCAT is an accessible, contemporary expression of the Catholic Faith. The popular format includes Questions-and-Answers, highly-readable commentary, margin pictures and illustrations, summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations, and quotes from the Saints and other great teachers. What's more, YOUCAT is keyed to the Catechism of the Catholic Faith, so people can go deeper. It explains:
What Catholics believe (doctrine)
How they celebrate the mysteries of the faith (sacraments)
How Catholics are to live (moral life)
How they should pray (prayer and spirituality)
The questions are direct and honest, even at times tough; the answers straightforward, relevant, and compelling. After the Bible, YOUCAT will likely become the "go-to" place for young people to learn the truth about the Catholic faith. Pope Benedict XVI wrote the foreword; Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, the editor of YOUCAT and the Archbishop of Vienna, Austria, wrote the afterword. Lavishly Illustrated.
AVOID this catechism until revised...
Has potential, but a bit lacking.
I'll start with this--I'm 15 years old. So going into the new YOUCAT, I was definitely excited. I had heard so many good things and there was a lot of publicity going up to the YOUCAT's release.
Digestable format makes this Catechism ideal for educating youth and young adults!
Great catechism for the teen or young adult in your life.
Despite it's flaws, a great catechism for young people
