Build your home or parish library starting today.

If you're a catechist, then you're aware of the importance of your role. You provide the core of Catholic education to our youth and adults who are entering the Church. As such, you are familiar with the teachings of the Church and can probably answer most questions about the faith. However, our faith is a broad topic, so we're here to help with official books approved by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

A complete library of books for catechists should feature the USCCB's full collection.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Our faith is like the ocean compared to our individual experience. With over 2,000 years of Christian history, preceded by an even longer period of ancient history, our relationship with God, the scriptures we have to guide us, and the lessons of history cover every imaginable topic. That's a lot of knowledge and more than even the most learned scholar can be expected to acquire.

Fortunately, as a catechist, you have the essentials down. Yet, there's still the one question you get every from RCIA class that will stump you, or one topic you struggle with personally. For that reason, the finest Catholic scholars have prepared books that you can keep for reference. Approved by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), an entire library of books is available for you via Catholic Shopping .com, an authorized retailer of books for the USCCB.

Every parish should have these books in its library.


Every parish should have a library and ideally, it will be stocked with these texts, providing a convenient reference for both catechists and students who have a question.

And everybody has questions! In fact, the only people without questions are those that aren't learning.

It's a nice thing to be able to say you will find an answer to that one question you don't know in the classroom. And while it's easy to browse Google for the answers, there's usually no imprimatur on the internet. Fortunately, the books approved by the USCCB do have their nihil obstat and "imprimatur" inside the cover so you can employ them with confidence.

There are no questions that the fathers and thinkers of our Church have not wrestled with at some point, and no answer withheld by God. Everything is at your fingertips. All that's left is to build the library you need to serve as the go-to source for the correct answer to every question.

Start building your library today by choosing your first books from our collection and work your way through. You may build your library all at once or one book per month as you are inclined. It's a great way to gradually build a library of works that allow you to eventually look up and answer every question that arises.

Browse the collection today and place your first order now.
