The FIRST Handbook of Faith written to the U.S. Bishops Curriculum Framework!
Catholic Essentials: An Overview of the Faith is a handbook of information, prayer, and practice about Jesus, the Holy Trinity, the Catholic Church, the Sacraments, and ways those who believe in Jesus live out their faith. Organized around the US Bishops' high school curriculum framework, this book is an essential resource to accompany a full study of the Catholic faith.
Catholic Essentials provides an overview and synthesis of the six required courses and the elective options of a high school theology curriculum, making it the perfect companion for the students' four years of high school. It also works as a primary text for an introductory or review course. It is well suited for use as the main catechetical resource in a parish youth ministry or religious education program, as it conforms to the new parish adaptation of the framework.

"I love the text and am a fan of the Teacher's Manual. The Teacher's Manual is easy to read, inviting, and is usable in the classroom as it exists today. That same inviting warmth permeates the Student Text. If the goal is to make Jesus approachable so that the students may develop a relationship with him, you have succeeded." --Maria Steen
