YOUCAT Becomes World’s Best-Selling Catholic Book

1.7M Sold Around the Globe

SAN FRANCISCO, APRIL 17, 2012 (Zenit.org).- The young people’s catechism of the Catholic Church, titled YOUCAT, has reached the rank of the best-selling Catholic book in the world.

The catechism was launched at World Youth Day in Madrid. Ignatius Press published the English-language version.

Jesuit Father Joseph Fessio, editor of Ignatius, referred to YOUCAT’s unique role: “Like its big brother, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, YOUCAT isn’t a one-time publication. It’s a point of reference for young people around the world and a cornerstone of the New Evangelization.”

YOUCAT adapts the content of the Catechism of the Catholic Church to a format intended to engage young people and young adults. 

The format includes questions and answers, highly-readable commentary, margin photos and illustrations, summary definitions of key terms, Bible citations and quotes from the saints and other teachers.
