  • “Colorful presentation was a hit.”

    “The colorful presentation was a hit right away. As a DRE I am excited to find a format that appeals to our high school students while covering the materials recommended by the U.S. Bishops' High School Curriculum Framework.”

  • “Easy to read, inviting, and usable in the classroom.”

    “I love the Student Text and am a fan of the Teacher's Manual! The Teacher's Manual is easy to read, inviting, and is usable in the classroom as it exists today. That same warmth permeates the Student Text. If the goal is to make Jesus approachable so that the students may develop a relationship with him, you have succeeded.”
