This is a perfect small group study Feb 18, 2008
We use this with the US Catholic Adult Catechism in our Men's Group to really get into the catechism and how to use it with a persons daily life. It is in depth yet is easy to understand and read.
Study Guide for the U.S. Catholic Catechism Nov 9, 2007
Excellent accompaniment to the U. S. Catholic Catechism for Adults. It highlights and focuses on the most important aspects of the doctrine. I'm using it as a reference source for RCIA students.
A PERFECT GUIDE TO ADULT EDUCATION Sep 26, 2007
WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR GOOD ADULT CATACHESIS AND THIS GUIDE TO THE U.S. CATHOLIC CATECHISM IS JUST THAT GOOD. IT IS PERFECT FOR THE LEADER OF A ADULT FAITH FORMATION PROGRAM OR R.C.I.A PROGRAM.
Excellent resource Sep 3, 2007
Jem Sullivan has written a terrific companion to the new U.S. Adult Catholic Catechism that will be a welcome resource to anyone charged with leading a faith-formation program or discussion group. Each of the catechism's 36 chapters is given a two-page plan for an hour-long session. Included are summaries of doctrinal teachings, reflections, discussion questions, prayers, and excellent suggestions for further reading. And unlike the U.S. Adult Catholic Catechism, the guide contains references to the Compendium of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Highly recommended.
UPDATE: After spending additional time with this book, I'd probably knock off a star or two. While the format is very good, combining prayer, doctrine, and reflection, far too often the discussion questions are of the navel-gazing variety. A perfect example is found in the chapter on Baptism: "What does Baptism mean to you personally?" Let it suffice to say that the questions would benefit from a more cognitive approach to learning.
