(© 2006) This text has been found in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church.


Our Catholic Faith: Living What We Believe, written as an introduction to Catholicism, provides an overview of the faith using basic principles and teachings contained in the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It offers an in-depth resource for building religious literacy and provides a synthesis of the Catholic faith as outlined in the Catechism. The text challenges students to accept Jesus, commit themselves to him through the Church, and to live lives of loving service.


Each chapter includes several special features:

  • Panel activities that help foster total learning in hands (service), hearts (prayer), and mind (academic challenges).
  • Review questions for each main section.
  • Several journal assignments for deeper thought and reflection.
  • Key vocabulary terms set off in margin panels.
  • A Learn by Doing project for each chapter that provides a longer-term assignment.
  • A Called to Prayer feature offering text from a prayer relevant to the chapter theme.

Note: Sale price not available for retail or wholesale purchase.


"The best, most useful textbook."

"Overall, I find this book to be an excellent resource in teaching the Catholic faith. It is organized very well and contains a comprehensive overview of the Catholic faith on a level suitable for high school students. The illustrations and photos are captivating. There are abundant additional materials to use as needed in each chapter. My students utilize the Glossary and Index all the time. They have not had much background in the Catholic faith and some are not even Catholic. The Appendix also contains reference information which I find quite valuable in this classroom setting.

I have been teaching religion here for 11 years and this is the best, most useful textbook on the Catholic faith that I have seen yet. Thank you and thanks to Michael Pennock!
