his 200-page volume offers a clear synopsis of the essential contents of the faith as promulgated in the Catechism of the Catholic Church in 598 questions and answers. Like the 1992 Catechism, the Compendium has a four-part structure and includes a section on common prayers and Catholic doctrinal formulas. Because of the question-and-answer format, catechetical leaders-parents, pastors, teachers, principals, and catechists-have a unique opportunity to dialogue with the faithful and to reinvigorate the Church's ongoing mission of evangelization and catechesis. Individuals can come "to know the unfathomable riches of the salvific mystery of Jesus Christ" by reading, using, and memorizing parts of the Compendium of the Catechism. An essential tool for youth and young adults, the Compendium is the perfect compatnon to a youth's or young adult's Bible, spiritual reading, or textbook. Catechetical leaders in high schools, colleges, and parishes will appreciate its vitality-as a reference book, discussion starter, or core resource for RCIA programs.

Preaching is evangelizing, making the Word come alive for the People of God. This task is central to the New Evangelization and the Church's renewal.

The bishops' statement Preaching the Mystery of Faith: The Sunday Homily, is directed toward priests, deacons, and seminary educators who prepare them to preach the Sunday homily in these times of confusion and relativism. The statement gives special attention to the biblical and theological foundations for effective liturgical preaching and considers the proper connection between the Sunday homily and the Church's liturgy and catechesis. Preaching the Mystery of Faith emphasizes the particular pastoral needs of our time that have prompted the call for a renewed evangelization.
