It is great to see this book is available again. Some
of the most basic Catholic Teachings seem to get left
behind in todays - social service age - this brings
back the basics of Catholic Religious education. Great for recent converts who need specific details. Great reference.
Such as dogma and doctrine of the Faith. And we see this mentality reflected in the Baltimore Catechism. While "outdated" in the sense that this book was compiled before Vatican II, which was almost 4 decades ago, this book is still entirely relevant for Catholics today. The book is assembled as a series of questions and answers to a number of matters as it pertains to the faith of Catholic Christians. This is the second book, which is targetted to children from middle school and up. I am an adult (i.e.: over 18) and I still enjoy reading this Catechism. The answers are simple and straightforward, and I've found that working as a catechist (R.C.I.A. - Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) that this book becomes a wonderful resource. In addition, since this book has not been modified post-Vatican II, this is a favorite resource of traditionalist Catholics. Overall, I think the book is a good resource for Catholics, the pictures break up what could be tedious reading (sorting through Q&A) otherwise and add a unique "flavor" to this book that it would not otherwise have.
