The Catechism of the Catholic Church was approved by Pope John Paul II in 1992. Obviously, the information contained in it was not new—it is based on the Bible, documents from church councils, encyclicals, previous versions of the catechism, and other Church documents that predate it by hundreds of years.
The Catechism is meant to be used as a reference work. It’s organized clearly with an extensive table of contents and a glossary. I wouldn’t recommend trying to read it from cover to cover, though you certainly can if you’re of such a mind to do so.
The Catechism is easy to find. It’s available for free on the Vatican website, though since I hate reading on the computer, I don’t find it more beneficial for anything save the search function. Printed copies are easily available used, new, paperback, hardcover, trade paperback, mass market paperback, e-reader, and any form you could want. As long as it says “Catechism of the Catholic Church,” it’s the right book. Be aware that the
United States Catholic Catechism for Adults is a study supplement and does not contain the full text of the Catechism.
are not a practicing Catholic you might want to get this and ponder the book and
see if it can maybe change your life. We are talking about your soul and your
family's souls.....is there anything more important than that?
Good luck and God Bless
Also interesting is the Introduction to the Catechism of the Catholic Church by Cardinal Ratzinger and Christoph Schonborn, which contains introductory presentations by the authors since the publication of the CCC.
Finally, The Companion to the Catechism of the Catholic Church contains all the relevant texts from the sources footnoted in CCC - almost 3000 pages of material reproduced verbatim.
