Since the Baltimore Catechism was first launched in 1885, it has proved an incomparable tool for passing on the faith to the next generation. The revival of this Catechism reflects the growing realisation among Catholics, that to accept, practice and defend the holy faith, we must first understand and learn its truths. The Baltimore Catechism clearly and concisely explains what Catholics believe.
The question and answer format is useful for anyone who wants to grow in his or her knowledge of the faith of the Catholic Church. It is also perfect for parents who want to instruct their children in the fundamentals of Catholicism.

We carefully choose fonts for our titles in order that our books are readable even by those with eyesight impairments. It is important to know that the font size alone is not a good indication as to whether a text is easy to read. We therefore encourage our customers to print out a sample page of the title they are interested in to see whether the type of font and the fonts size are acceptable to them.

Point size vs. x-Height
- The point size of a typeface (Font Size) is a measure of its overall height, from the top of the tallest character above the baseline to the longest descender below the baseline.
- x-Height refers to the distance between the baseline that letter sits on and the top of the lower case x (the source of the term) and mid-section of lower case letters
The x-height is what really makes a difference to readability, not font size.
