Product Description

This is a book for all persons involved in guiding lifelong catechesis. The ability to uncover the relationship of human experience to biblical and liturgical heritage as well as to the experience of the saints and of the church throughout the ages requires the imagination of an artist. And linking those elements in a way that unfolds meaning to a particular group at a given time is a major artistic achievement. This is what a catechist does and who a catechist is.
A catechist can foster growth in faith by the way they engage people with the richness of Christian heritage. This book provides the background and practical ideas that will help catechists accomplish that end. It leads them to reflect on their own religious experience and to bring that awareness into their lives as catechists. It whets their appetite for moving deeper into the scriptural, liturgical and doctrinal tradition of the church.
