It depends on your background and interests. For an educated Catholic or Orthodox person, I would recommend the official catechism. For someone unfamiliar with Catholic terminology, I would recommend Peter Kreeft's Catholic Christianity.(Kreeft, Peter. Catholic Christianity: A Complete Catechism of Catholic Beliefs Based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 2001.) For someone with a basic understanding of the Catholic/High Anglican tradition who is more concerned with the living faith than the intellectual faith, I would recommend the multivolume Living the Catechism of the Catholic Church by Schoborn ....

The point about what is best and what is considered to be "best tagged" probably needs some elaboration. Meanwhile I put some links into MJ's answer

or the same in international version(the CCC is heavily tagged internally and towards Denzinger's SCD).

maybe a honorable mention of the YouCat is in oder here.

Thank you all for the help.  Exactly what I was hoping for.  

I think I will go with

  • CCC (US version. i can't buy the International version)
  • SCD 
  • CC by Kreeft

Edit:  It seems I can get the CCC International if I buy Verbum Bronze.  I wonder...

May I suggest looking at https://www.logos.com/product/18543/catechism-of-the-catholic-church-collection since it has CCC and SCD as well as a a few other standard doctrinal texts? Just be aware that this collection doesn't really talk as much about application or the liturgical context for what they doctrinally say, which is admittedly quite important for understanding Rome.

Thanks Ken.

I also found that Verbum Bronze + Verbum Ordinariate totaled about $62 for me and provided a WEALTH of great resources.  Not sure why I didn't do this a long time ago.

Well, the reason I haven't bought any Verbum sets is that I am in Logos Now, and the low end packages are almost all buying datasets I am already renting...

You can buy the libraries bare, without the features. Just email the sales people for a quote.
