Item description for The Way of Faith: A Field Guide to the Rcia Process by Ma Nick Wagner...

Nick Wagner asks, "What would it take to have the best initiation process your parish is capable of?" "It would take a lot," he answers. "No kidding, it would take a lot of time and energy." And if you are going to put that much time and energy into starting and sustaining an excellent catechumenate, you want to make sure you have all the tools you need. This field guide gives you that and more. Nick Wagner provides a step-by-step tour through each of the stages of the catechumenate, giving you the knowledge and confidence you need to lead your parish process. This lively, "plain-English" guide is cram-packed with tips, solutions, best-practices, and no-nonsense guidance. Learn who you need on your team, how to find sponsors, how to know when catechumens and candidates are ready to move from one stage to the next, and how to plan and choreograph the rites of the RCIA. If you are a pastor, an RCIA director, a team member, a catechist, or a sponsor, this book will transform the way you do your ministry.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Way of Faith: A Field Guide to the Rcia Process?

Perfect for my needs!  Oct 16, 2009
I am liturgist for our RCIA team and this little book has given me so many ideas for how to organize our rites. The rites need to be something that our candidates can appreciate and remember and this book will help it do exactly that!
Clear and Compelling  Jul 26, 2009
Nick Wagner's guide to the catechumenate is hands-down the most engaging, readable and bracing book available on this subject. It is written for Catholics who work with The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) in a parish setting, and is accessible to volunteers as well as professionals in ministry. There is plenty of literature about the RCIA on the market today, from academic works to how-to manuals, from multi-volume resource books to small brochures and handouts. The Way of Faith stands out among all the current literature for two reasons.

First, as an overview of the process The Way of Faith compares favorably with Thom Morris's classic, The RCIA: Transforming the Church. It is detailed, complete, practical and correct with respect to the vision. This isn't easy. The RCIA is complex, and it's much easier to pretend it conforms to something we already know well, like classroom instruction, than to represent it as it really is: an experience of conversion in community that has the liturgy at its heart. Wagner gets it right.

Second, because of Wagner's crisp writing style and contemporary examples, the book never comes across as dry or pedantic. He speaks to his readers as a coach, with humor and fresh ways of describing things, inciting them to do this work creatively in their own setting. The book includes specific tools, such as checklists, rehearsal plans, and outlines for catechetical sessions. But that's not the best thing about it. The best thing about this book is the clear, compelling conviction that underlies the whole work: "Conversion to Christ is an awesome change. It is the most awesome change we will ever experience." (p. 11). Initiation as Wagner describes it is a marvelous work and a great adventure.

The Way of Faith lives up to its subtitle: "A Field Guide for the RCIA Process." After reading this book, one wants nothing better than to get out into the field and do it. Readers of the website will find that this book complements the online resources produced by Wagner and others. I would recommend this book for anyone serving on an RCIA team or contemplating starting one. It well deserves the first place award it received in 2009 from the Catholic Press Association for books in pastoral ministry.
awesome  Apr 13, 2009
This book is the best resource available to get your team going and continued training for RCIA! It is very detailed and hands on. It continues to be very helpful in training new team members and sharing the vision for RCIA with others in the parish. It is also user friendly and to the point. I highly recommend this resource to those just in the beginning stages of developing their program, those who need to make some changes and for those who need to fine tune some stages.
