Reviews - What do customers think about The Mystery We Proclaim: Catechesis for the Third Millennium?
Just what we need in modern catechesis! Jul 20, 2006
Methods come and methods go. Theology shifts focus from century to century, depending on the needs of the faithful. "The Mystery We Proclaim; Catechesis for the third Millennium" gives us just what we need for today. Faithful to the Catechism, General directory for Catechesis, Vatican II documents, and all of Revelation, this book is a synthesis of these things as they relate to catechesis and a helpful tool for those who cannot study each in depth individually. In the "Ecclesial Method" of catechesis outlined and the end of his book, Monsignor Kelly gives us a prictical and Christ centered method which will serve our catechists and those they teach very well.
Changing the Face of Catholic Education May 2, 2006
Under Moran and Groome Catholic Education has suffered from modernism and generations of Catholics are left with little understanding of their faith. Msgr Kelly's text, the Mystery We Proclaim is one of the foundational texts used at Fransican University in the Catechetics Program. Along with the preventative method of St. John Bosco (See: The Educational Philosophy of St. John Bosco), it is changing the face of Catholic Education. Entire dioceses are being transformed through this catechetical method. This method works, keeps students interested and helps them retain information better. It draws them to the heart of our faith, Jesus Christ. What could be more important when it comes to the Deposit of Faith? This book is well worth an investment of $10.
