From nationally recognized religious educator, Dr. Mike Carotta, Teaching for Discipleship points out why now is the right time to emphasize the call of discipleship, the challenges involved in making "necessary adaptations", catechetical dynamics that distinguish Teaching for Discipleship from our past approaches, and practices that can help all of us keep heart.
"Provides the Church with useful insights into the current challenges of catechesis and the practical implementation of teaching for discipleship in our time." - Most Reverend George J. Lucas, Archbishop of Omaha
"An invaluable gift that brings fresh hope and promise." - Sr Edith Prendergast, RSC, Diocesan Director Religious Education, Archdiocese Los Angeles
"I am convinced that if catechists would follow the methods outlined here, the entire church would more effectively call and form Christian disciples." - Jeffrey Kaster, Ed.D. Director Youth in Theology and Ministry Saint John's University, Collegeville, Mn.
"Great, paradigm challenging wisdom. At a time when there's a lot of emphasis on battling perspectives in the church, it carries an enormously important message." - Steve Angrisano, Speaker and Composer
"A great practical guide that can open up the discussion not only for the development of catechesis, but also for understanding the importance of Catholic education to the world." - Doug Triche, Assistant Principal of Academic Affairs, St. Charles High School, LaPlace, La.
"I highly recommend this book is for anyone who desires to seriously reflect on their own approach to journeying with others on the path of discipleship." -- Rita Ramos, Pastoral Associate, St, Pius X Catholic Church, Omaha, NE.
