The Pedagogy of God

Its Centrality in Catechesis and Catechist Formation

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."

The Church has a unique form for transmitting the Faith. The Church calls this the "pedagogy of God." It is from this pedagogy that catechesis should take its inspiration and its life. The central truth is that God Himself is the pedagogue. Catechists and those being catechized are invited to co-operate with Him in learning under His grace.

Catechetical leaders will be happy to find within these pages scholars and practitioners of catechesis, who address many aspects of communicating the Faith, yet with the united purpose of answering the primary question of catechesis as a “school of faith” embracing the entire Christian life. It is here that we and the crucial place of The Pedagogy of God: Its Centrality in Catechesis and Catechist Formation.

The Legacy of Pope John Paul II

The Central Teaching of His 14 Encyclical Letters

Popes are the Church's chief shepherds. While some focused on governing the Church and addressing challenges from the world, others recognized their primary responsibility to proclaim and teach the Gospel. Author Alan Schreck calls these the teaching popes and John Paul II was such a pope, leading the Church and impacting the world with his witness and his teaching.

The encyclical letter has been, in modern times, the instrument for popes to express their most important teachings that have lasting value for the Church, and often for the whole world. Dr. Schreck invites the reader to become familiar with the encyclical letters of Pope John Paul II.

In The Legacy of Pope John Paul II, Dr. Schreck breaks down more scholarly writing into accessible language. The reflection questions and suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter help facilitate a systematic study of the central teachings of this brilliant but pastoral pope, who conveyed the truth in love.
