Catechetical Scholars IV: Biblical, Liturgical, Moral and Spiritual Perspectives on Catechesis
From the NCEA Bookshelf
This volume is a representative sampling of academic papers given at The Catholic University of America in 2008 and at Fordham University in 2009. The papers were prepared in response to research papers prepared by members of the Catechetical Scholars IV group. Catechetical Scholars was a two-year program designed to bring leaders together to study and research a topic in the field of catechetical ministry that was of particular interest to the individual's parish or diocese.
The veteran leaders were supported and refreshed by presentations of scholars from the host and neighboring Catholic colleges and universities. Drawing on biblical, liturgica), moral and spiritual sources, these essays makefoundational concepts come alive for all catechetical leaders. The collections demonstrates that a welldeveloped religious imagination is necessary for authentic catechesis in the 21st century.
