Compendium of the Catholic Faith
Your comprehensive guide to living as a faithful Catholic in our challenging times!
Acclaim for Credo
For the first time in over fifty years, a Catholic bishop has published his own complete and authoritative presentation of the Faith—what to believe, how to live, and how to pray as Christ taught.
Credo: Compendium of the Catholic Faith is a comprehensive summary of Christian doctrine, written for our time by a living successor of the apostles. With episcopal insight and pastoral zeal, Bishop Athanasius Schneider offers a bold new articulation of timeless truths, unpacking the riches of Church teaching while engaging contemporary issues with refreshing clarity and genuine charity.
The most up-to-date “catechism” in print! Using the simple and direct “Question–Answer” format so popular among instructors (and internet search engines) today, Bishop Athanasius Schneider explains the truths of Faith in the classic, threefold pattern: after an Introduction outlining Christian identity and doctrine, Part I unpacks what Catholics believe, following the articles of the Apostle’s Creed. Part II explains the principles of right morals, following the Ten Commandments and the Precepts of the Church. Part III teaches on grace, the sacraments, prayer, and worship. Appendices include the five major Christian Creeds, and a stellar Index (plus unique headers and bleed tabs) makes navigating the book delightfully easy.
With the courage and kindness of a true shepherd of souls, Bishop Schneider also addresses many contemporary issues, including:
- social media use
- economic justice
- personal technology
- science and evolution
- just war, death penalty
- gender ideology
- vaccines, health mandates
- world religions
- true prayer
- faithful parenting, education,
- religious liberty, free speech
- female clergy
- Church scandal
- magisterium, error
- pornography, human trafficking
- Sunday work
- Communism, Freemasonry
- charismatic movement
- marijuana, drug use
- authentic renewal, and more!
A reliable guide for anyone seeking to grow in knowledge and deepen their faith, Credo is the most complete and coherent guide to authentic Catholicism today, and is sure to be a classic for generations to come.

“Christ’s commission to ‘go therefore and make disciples of all nations’ (Mt 28:19) remains a standing order until He comes again in glory. Until then, the Church still has work to do.”
