YOUCAT by Schoenborn
YOUCAT is short for Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, which was launched on World Youth Day, 2011. Developed with the help of young Christians and written for high-school age people and young adults, YOUCAT is an accessible, contemporary expression of the Christian Faith. The appealing graphic format includes Questions-and-Answers, highly-readable commentary, summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations and inspiring and thought-provoking quotes from Saints and others in the margins. What's more, YOUCAT is keyed to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, so people can go deeper. It explains: What Christians believe and why (doctrine) How Christians celebrate the mysteries of the faith (sacraments) How Christians 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. YOUCAT will likely become the "go-to" place for young people to learn the truth about the Christian faith. Illustrated. What Pope Benedict XVI has to say about the YOUCAT project: "Study this Catechism with passion and perseverance. Make a sacrifice of your time for it! Study it in the quiet of your room; read it with a friend; form study groups and networks; share with each other on the Internet. By all means, continue to talk with each other about your faith." 305 pages.
