Book Description

June 15 1999 Threshold Bible Study
Theology for Teachers is a book for anyone interested in a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the Catholic faith. It is ideal for those who are preparing to teach in Catholic schools, as it fills the need for a basic text suited to the curriculum guideline of the Institute for Catholic Education for university courses in religious education.

The book is divided into five sections: "Principles of Faith and Faith Growth"; "An Introduction to the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures"; "Ecclesiology and Sacrament"; "Morality, Sin and Reconciliation"; and "The Last Things (Death and Beyond)." This revised edition refers to numerous sections of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which was not available in English when the two previous editions were published. The glossary at the end of the book, frequent footnote references, suggestions for further reading, and index make this work a valuable resource in religious education. Indeed, it is a popular textbook used in most faculties of religion across Canada.

All readers will benefit from the author's down-to-earth relating of theology to faith life. According to the author, "We do not study theology for its own sake; we study it that it may affect our daily life and bring us closer to the living God."

5.0 out of 5 stars Something new under the Sun! Dec 4 2005
By A Customer
I have had this book for a while and always refer to its wealth of information when seeking answers regarding Catholic belief. Knox is an amazing theologian, however, his explanations are definitely in layperson's language. A must have for any teacher of faith!

A solid, comprehensive overview of Church teaching, written using easy to understand, down-to-earth language. I'd recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about the faith, not just teachers.
