Baltimore Catechism Set

(13 reviews) Write a Review
Since its 1885 debut, the catechism commissioned by the Third Council of Bishops in Baltimore has instructed generations of Catholic faithful. With an easy-to-read question-and-answer format, the Catechism combines solid Catholic doctrinal teaching with meaningful exposure to Scripture and practical application. 
The revival of interest in the Baltimore Catechism reflects Catholics' growing realization that a clear, concise presentation of the truths of the Faith is just what people young and old need to appreciate, practice, and defend Church teaching. Catechists and parents will find this catechism an invaluable teaching tool as they prepare children and catechumens to receive the Sacraments and lead authentic Catholic lives. Students will find this an uncomplicated and friendly guide to authentic Catholicism.

The set contains all four of our Baltimore Catechisms: No. 1, No. 2, No. 3, and No. 4: An Explanation of the Baltimore Catechism (teacher's edition). These are the original TAN editions of the Baltimore Catechism, with updated typesetting, fresh new covers, larger format, quality bindings, and the same trusted content.

    I am so pleased with this set! I was looking for a good Q&A in order to better answer my children's and my grandchildren's questions and this set blew me away. I got the idea when listening to a broadcast of Scott Hahn. There was a feeling I felt when Scott was talking about his experience with the Baltimore Catechism and I knew that I was being directed to this set. Absolutely no regrets.

    Baltimore Catechism Set

    This is a beautiful set of a most important catechism. I used the Baltimore Catechism in preparation for my OWN Confirmation. Throughout our homeschooling years in the formative grades my dear husband and I used the Baltimore Catechism with our own children. Our family is pleased to have the four-book set all, reprinted here at TAN, in the same format. Thank you and God bless.

    What you dont know will kill you

    The Freemason phrase, "Ignorance is bliss" has brought millions if not billions to hell. Rome now says Evangelism is bad. So how does one actually learn how to live, work and thrive effectively and efficiently, in both the physical and spiritual world? Buy, read and live this set because you wont learn this from the pulpit or parents in virtually all cases. The law does not pity or excuse fools and all of us are bound by natural law. So learn it, or not.

    I love this collection for early, middle highschoolers and the adult version. It is a great method to learn about one's faith. I plan on ordering 12 ofBook 2s for family members. Older family grew up using this teaching technique.

    An excellent resource for learning our Faith and looking up answers to questions. The Bible tells stories on how these articles of faith are expressed and applied.
