The number of Church documents that have emerged since Vatican Council II is impressive as well as massive. Digested here in a single volume, the documents become more valuable to catechetical leaders who may have lived through the development of these texts. They also become more accessible to catechetical leaders new to catechetical ministry and students who may be getting acquainted with the documents. For all audiences, this book highlights topical interconnectivity and key elements. While not a substitute for the original sources, the Digest is one resource that Catholic colleges, universities and seminaries; bishops, pastors and deacons; diocesan catechetical and school administrators; parish directors of religious education, youth ministers and catechumenate directors; and national offices will appreciate having within arms reach on the book shelf.
