(© 2010) The Subcommittee on the Catechism, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has found that this catechetical high school text is in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church and fulfills the requirements of Core Course I of the Doctrinal Elements of a Curriculum Framework for the Development of Catechetical Materials for Young People of High School Age.
Jesus Christ: God's Revelation to the World provides a map for high school students to navigate the salvific work of God--Father, Son, and Spirit--in forming a People, giving a Law, and preparing for the Messiah. The one-semester course gives students a general knowledge and appreciation of Sacred Scripture through which they encounter Jesus Christ.
Tracing the stages of Salvation History, this text introduces key figures, events, vocabulary, and doctrine that will appear continuously throughout a four-year curriculum.

Michael Francis Pennock (1945-2009) was the author of several bestselling textbooks for Catholic high schools, including, Encountering Jesus in the New Testament, Your Life in Christ, Our Catholic Faith, and three recent texts to support the new US Bishops' curriculum framework. He remains one of the most respected names in catechetical circles.
Pennock taught theology for more than thirty-five years, mostly at his beloved alma mater, St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, Ohio. His students, numbering more than fifteen thousand, continue to pour out their remembrances and support for the man they called "Doc Pennock."
"Christ is at the heart of these texts. They are both user-friendly for teachers and appealing to students. They help teens to love Jesus more!" --Dawn Miller, St. John's Catholic Prep, MD
