Discover the power of the Catechism like never before with Screwtape! If you enjoyed C.S. Lewis Screwtape Letters, but need a guide book of defense strategies based in solid Church teaching, this is it! De La Torre breaks down Lewis' perennial classic chapter-by-chapter, identifying the devil's specific temptation in each. Then, he provides you with solid references and explanations from the Catechism of the Catholic Church which highlight the opposite virtue, truth or good. Despite his best (or worst!) intentions, the devil cannot help throwing into glorious relief all the beauty and richness of the Faith. His temptations are the shadows which highlight the Truth all the more. De La Torre gives you exactly the right Catechism teachings to use as effective weapons against Screwtape's whispered lies. Individuals, catechists, teachers and parents will delight in the clear presentation of truths which are sure to squash the temptation to do evil whenever and wherever found.

"Handbook for Today's Catechist" offers guidance on speaking and living the faith and the necessity of sacramental spirituality, as well as suggestions to avoid burnout and some basic "dos & don'ts" associated with teaching the faith.

Joe Paprocki, best-selling author of The Catechist’s Toolbox, has written the first step-by-step book that demonstrates how you can teach a 75-minute catechetical session with practical techniques that expand upon the textbook to create a more prayerful and experiential climate in the classroom. While textbooks are an essential tool for catechists to present the teachings of the Catholic Church in a clear and accurate manner, Beyond the Catechist’s Toolbox gives you the framework to guide your students toward personal transformation. By using Catholic rituals, prayers, and the Liturgy of the Word, Paprocki provides suggestions on how to get catechesis to resemble Mass more than class. Reading a textbook can help children know about God, and Beyond the Catechist’s Toolbox helps them know God personally as they prayerfully become lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ.

Little Lessons from the Saints

Far too many Catholics think of the saints as old, cold, and irrelevant to everyday life. Catechist and spiritual director Bob Burnham, however, experiences the saints as something quite different: beautiful examples of people who, though flawed like us, opened themselves to God’s grace and can teach us to do the same. In Little Lessons from the Saints, Burnham skips the typical biographies of saints and offers instead brief but powerful spiritual lessons from 52 different saints, each followed by a short meditation. Chapters are grouped under five main themes: Surrender, Freedom, Pilgrimage, Hospitality, and Loving Knowledge. Burnham succeeds in offering simple ways to apply each saint’s particular charism to our own lives. Inspiring and practical, Little Lessons from the Saints helps us realize that we, too, are called to be saints.

The "pedagogy of God" lies at the heart of the restoration currently advancing in the area of religious education and catechesis. According to the General Directory for Catechesis, the primary difficulty facing catechesis today is that catechists do not yet have a full understanding of "the conception of catechesis as a school of faith, an initiation and apprenticeship in the entire Christian life."
