The Basic Catholic Catechism is a textbook for the training of teachers of religion. It is adapted for this purpose from the author's Question and Answer Catechism. Major references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church follow the last chapter of each section.

This catechism is concise in the sense that it contains all the esstials of the Catholic faith. But it is more than a summary because it explains what the Catholic Church teaches and draws heavily on the Sacred Scriptures to explain this teching. It is thoroughly up-to-date, relying on the documents of the Second Vatican Council and the new Code of Canon Law.
