Reviews - What do customers think about The Catholic Faith Handbook for Youth?
Excellent resource Jan 11, 2007
It's getting harder and harder these days to find good information on the Church that isn't tainted by polemic. I have used this resource as part of confirmation programs, RCIA, high school classes, and had people tell me it was great just to peruse through as a reference. Faithful to the Catechism and the broader Tradition, but also engaging and apropos to the interests and questions of most teens. I highly recommend it as a complement to the Catholic Youth Bible for every teen.
I highly recommend it for youth and adults Nov 5, 2006
"The Catholic Faith Handbook for Youth" is a very good resource for youth and adults wanting to learn more about the Catholic faith and tradition. It is up to date in it's theology. It provides not only the basic catechism of the church, but also gives great stories and descriptions of some of the lives of the saints. It is easy and enjoyable to read and understand. I use the book for my catechists to help them to pass on our tradition and beliefs to the children and youth they encounter in a language that can be understood.
Great Aug 22, 2006
I received this book in perfect condition as promised and received it in time. I would order again
A must have for teens and adults Aug 15, 2006
Working in a religious education office, we review many books. This one definitely stood out as an exception. It's a user friendly set-up and references the Bible and the CCC. There is a lot of information under this cover. This handbook is not just for teens, but also for adults. I've given them as gifts and they are well received from those distanced from their faith and those close to it. St. Mary's Press is an excellent publisher.
A basic guidebook concerning all things Catholic Dec 5, 2004
The Catholic Faith Handbook For Youth is a basic guidebook concerning all things Catholic. Intended for young adults, yet accessible to anyone who may be fuzzy on the details of Catholicism, The Catholic Faith Handbook For Youth covers creed, sacraments, morality, and prayer, along with articles concerning information on current events from a Catholic point of view, advice for prayer, profiles of thirty-seven Catholic saints, notes on the history of the Catholic Church, and more. Full-color illustrations pepper this highly readible introduction to a spiritual way of life. Especially recommended reading to share with one's preteen and teenage children in order to teach them more about Catholicism and what it means to live one's life by Catholic religious principles.
