A New Textbook: Christ’s Church & World Religions

My latest book contribution has recently been released.  This one is a high school textbook for World Religions classes.  Actually, as its title Christ’s Church and World Religions clarifies, it’s not just about these religions but also about understanding and evaluating them in light of Jesus Christ and the teaching of the Catholic Church. Following the teachings of our popes and the Second Vatican Council, it also explores how studying these traditions can enrich the faith of Christians.

I authored the main essays that comprise the body of this volume, which also includes  supplementary materials composed by teachers for use in the high school classroom.  There’s also a separate teacher’s guide authored by experienced high school teachers.  I can’t recommend this text highly enough to those who have high school kids, to homeschooling families, to and really anyone who wants a basic introduction to this subject that follows the bishops’ guidelines for its teaching.

PS: The book’s title speaks of world religions, but it is also a book about ecumenism, as it includes chapters that treat Protestant and Orthodox Christianity.  And, as a bonus, it also treats atheism as a religious phenomenon!
