Publisher's Summary

This unabridged audio version brings to life an exciting combination of the seven basic elements that make up the print version. Musical accents subtly underscore the beginning of each chapter. The meditation and prayer elements, with six different readers, both men and women, including Archbishop Donald Wuerl, bring the text to life.
This special presentation would be extremely useful for commuters, those who are visually impaired, or those who prefer to listen rather than read. The lessons, stories, doctrinal summaries, sidebars, and prayers are all presented in self-contained tracks as short as a minute and usually no longer than four or five minutes, which will also prove useful for RCIA groups, study groups, and other gatherings of believers.

Enjoyable and Enlightening Listening!

I've never enjoyed catechism, even going back to childhood, but I have found this recording to be easy, enjoyable and enlightening listening. I found the content by the Bishops to be easily accessible, but by no means juvenile - it's definitely adult. I liked the change of voices, the music, and chimes. They helped to remain focused. The references didn't bother me, and I might even go back and look up a few points in the hardcopy Universal Catechism. For me, the stories interspersed throughout the text added meaning and context, and provided examples upon which to reflect, and perhaps try to emulate. I often listen while stuck in traffic, so I feel that I accomplish something while stuck in traffic.

Brought me closer to Jesus teachings.

Helped me understand many of my answered questions about the Catholic Church. Also reinforced and confirmed teachings I have received so far from our Holy Church.
