I read this book in less than a week. It’s that good. That easy. That sensible. That practical. That informative.
It’s simply full of good common sense.
It’s so good I’m getting my catechists started with it this school year.
I think an online book study is probably the easiest, most common sense way for us all to discuss this book, share ideas and thoughts regarding the past while supplying a roadmap to the future, and starting off a great catechetical year of learning.
This topic concerns all catechists and Catholic parents. The world has changed. The Church has changed.
God has not.
What have we lost? What have we gained? How has that changed our identity as Catholic people? What is our responsibility to our children? Why don’t people care anymore?
Order the book here: Common Sense Catechesis by Fr. Robert J. Hater
Each week we’ll read and discuss a chapter and I will have a chapter summary posted here to help you see the important points Fr. Robert J. Hater makes in his book. Questions (as a post-Vatican II youth being raised by pre-Vatican II parents) I’ve wondered about. Areas I’ve surfed aimlessly. Concerns I’ve struggled with. A faith that I continue to love.
