Baltimore Catechism on Kindle!

This is fun: the Baltimore Catechism Number 3 is now available for the Kindle book-reader.

Number 3 is the most comprehensive of the series, excluding the teachers' version, which is called Number 4. So this is the one suitable for preparation for Confirmation.

New Kindle Catechism

We are pleased to announce our new Kindle version of the classic Baltimore Catechism just in time for the return of students to the classroom this fall.

This comprehensive eBook edition of the Baltimore Catechism contains the constant, authentic doctrine and moral teaching of the Catholic Faith. More than 500 clear and concise questions and answers are included.

Fr. Connell's catechism is superior to any other catechism, including any other Baltimore catechism. Answers are well developed with thorough explanations and Sacred Scripture is used extensively to amplify the answers. In addition, each chapter concludes with study helps, exercises, and a summary essay for teachers and students.

  1. Is it possible to purchase this and send to other people?

    Msgr Loftus maybe, or possibly some selected members of the Bishops Conference?

  3. The best questions and answers catechism is The Catholic Catechism by Cardinal Gasparri. It is available on Kindle as the "Catholic Catechism of Pius X" at the grand sum of 82p. It has the added plus that it is above the criticism that has been levelled at the Baltimore Catechism on a previous post of LMS Chairman.
