Description

(© 2011) The Subcommittee on the Catechism, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has found that this catechetical high school text is in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church and fulfills the requirements of Core Course II of the Doctrinal Elements of a Curriculum Framework for the Development of Catechetical Materials for Young People of High School Age.


Jesus Christ: His Mission and Ministry deepens the study of Jesus, highlighting key events in his earthly ministry while unpacking his teachings about God the Father, the Trinity, Mary, and the Holy Spirit. Students learn that the goal of discipleship is a life of grace and holiness and a share of God's everlasting Kingdom. Jesus Christ: His Mission and Ministry encourages a course of action and calls on teens to "pick up their cross" and follow the Lord in this life and beyond by introducing key vocabulary terms, exploring relevant questions of faith, profiling famous Christian disciples, and offering several applications to put the lessons into action. The text follows Course II of the new curriculum framework. It is also applicable for a Christology course apart from the framework sequence.

Each chapter includes several special features:

  • Panel activities that help the students 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.

NEW features that enhance this text:

  • A "Chapter Quick View" feature with page references that allow students to scan the chapter for main points.
  • In-text glossary definitions with a variety of activities to help students learn key terms.
  • Several "Primary Source Quotations" from the words of saints, Church Fathers, and the Church documents.
  • Many "Ongoing Assignments" for each chapter that can be assigned as long-term projects, extra credit, and follow-up to the lessons learned.
  • A prayer experience and reflection for each chapter.
