The Faith Fusion Catechist Guide pagination matches the student book page-for-page, with teaching text for all content in the student book. The catechist guide includes plenty of supplemental information to help catechists prepare for teaching the lessons, with additional content that provides Scripture background, liturgy backgrounds, Church history, Catholic Social Teaching and social justice summaries, and much more. The guide also contains three additional activities per lesson. There is also an ACRE assessment tool in each lesson review. It's great prep for the 8th grade ACRE test. The answer locator box on the review page includes page references. The music connection section provides ties to three of the most popular hymnals for Catholic young people.

Faith Fusion (student text 9781592765935) is a comprehensive 224-page overview of the Catholic faith based on the framework of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Each lesson of Faith Fusion is developed around a balance of Scripture and Tradition. Faith Fusion has four units comprising 20 chapters. Each unit corresponds to a pillar of the Catechism. Each chapter includes a complete Scripture reading, Church teachings about how to live the Catholic faith, and the story of a saint or other holy person whose example shows the message of Scripture and Church teaching lived out.

Every chapter includes reflections and activities to help students explore how they can live what they have learned. A chapter review at the end of each chapter reinforces learning. Throughout the lessons, key terms are defined and highlighted at the point of use for greater understanding and comprehension.

Chapters also provide a wealth of contextual content on topics ranging from Church history, Catholic customs, the Sunday readings, Catholic signs and symbols, and more. Further, all seven themes of Catholic Social Teaching are fully presented, with reflections to lead the students to relate the teachings to how they live their lives.

In addition to twenty chapters that correspond to the four pillars of the Catechism and provide a true Catechism catch-up, Faith Fusion also includes a Catholic Source Book featuring: Catholic Prayers and Devotions; a listing and summaries of Catholic Beliefs and Practices; a summary of Vatican II and its key documents; a summary of Pope John Paul II s Theology of the Body; a lesson on how to read the Bible and find Scripture passages; an overview of the Liturgical Year, the cycle of readings, and the Holy Days of Obligation; and much more!

Each student book includes a bonus two-sided pull-out poster of Church and world history. The poster features a history timeline on one side, starting with the birth of Jesus and ending with the election of Pope Benedict XVI and that of the first African-American U.S. president. The second side highlights the Church's contributions to Western Civilization in the arts, science, law, and other areas of culture and learning.
The pages of Faith Fusion (student text) are perforated, making for easy distribution of individual lessons. The text provides plenty of space for responding to activities and reflections and includes lesson reviews for students at the end of the chapters, combining workbook and textbook in a single volume, for one price.

Faith Fusion provides a comprehensive Catechism review that makes it an ideal resource for Confirmation prep, RCIA candidates, as well as junior high and high school students. Immediate preparation for Confirmation is also provided in the five Being Catholic mini-lessons.

Fr. Alfred McBride was the doctrinal reviewer for this book and also wrote the foreword. Faith Fusion has also been found to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
