For catechists, school religion teachers, home-schooling parents, Catholics who want to learn more:
Two book recommendations. . .
I am using these two texts in my Teaching and Preaching the Word of God course at NDS.
Both books indirectly critique the disastrous "Shared Christian Praxis" pedagogy of Thomas Groome, et. al. and urge catechists to adopt a pedagogy that actually reflects the way God Himself teaches us through scripture, tradition, liturgy, and the magisterium.
Using both the content and form of the CCC, the books show how our revealed faith reflects the reality of God, Who is truth, beauty, goodness, and unity. And how the catechist is to be formed as a teacher of the faith, i.e. not as a facilitator for a therapeutic deconstruction of revealed truths.
I highly recommend these texts as formidable remedies to the catechetical maladies that the Church has endured in the last fifty years._____________________
