Excerpt


A unique resource for use in Catholic high schools and parish religious education or youth ministry programs, providing concrete ways for teenagers to learn about, apply, and make choices about a number of current and practical moral issues. Though applicable in several different courses and programs, the basic approach is for a teacher, catechist, or youth minister to assign a moral dilemma to be taken home, read, and discuss using the questions that accompany each. A due date for the assignment is given. By that date, the teenager is to return the sheet to class with his or her own signature and that of his parents. This accountability helps to assure that parents not only have a voice in their teens's moral development, but continue in their God-given role as primary educator of their children. Among the issues covered are those in the areas of abortion, capital punishment, child abuse/domestic violence, divorce, drugs/alcohol, eating disorders, homosexuality,honesty, sexuality, suicide. Each of the issues listed above are prefaced by a general overview of the issue, providing the teacher some needed backround to help introduce discussion. Another section summarizes the Catholic Church teaching on each of these issues.

In his familiar, conversational style, Father Himes invites the reader to consider ten basic truths of Catholicism. Beginning with discussions of Trinity, Grace, the Incarnation and Salvation, Himes moves into an exploration of Church as the continuting presence of Jesus Christ in the world today. After discussing what Baptism and the baptismal commitment really involves, he focuses on Eucharist, showing the importance of the sacrament for personal growth and for the building of community. After discussing the Sacraments of Matrimony and Holy Orders, Himes explores the importance of the sacrament of reconciliation in the Christian community, and concludes with a discussion of the great gift to the church that we know as tradition.

Based on Father Himes' popular video series, The Mystery of Faith, this book includes questions for refl ection and discussion at the conclusion of each chapter. An excellent resource for small groups or parish learning communities seeking to revitalize and deepen their understanding of basic Catholic beliefs. Paperback.
