The Teaching of Christ presents with precision and clarity a complete vision of Catholic faith and life.

Woven into its account of faith are the words of Scripture, of the Liturgy, of the Fathers and saints, of the Councils of the Church, and of the voices of the magisterium.
The Teaching of Christ in this edition makes readily accessible to all the full message of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It has been fully correlated with this new universal Catechism.
