Fr. Alfred McBride has written a stellar catechism for teens based on the first edition of the Universal Catechism, published in 1994. It is very effective in its style. Offering a wide group of quotations from saints and prominent Catholics of the past, Fr. McBride gives the reader a connection to the history of his faith and helps him to recognize his membership in the communion of saints. Also, in style, the book smells of scholastic argumentation. A problem or inadequate explanation of an article of faith is posed, then the question is answered by the Catechism, and then the problem is addressed directly. A wonderful tool.
I am the Director of Religious Education for a Military Chapel and was looking for a good study program for my post confirmation class when I stumbled upon this book. It answers all of the questions that teens have asked our own parish Priest. It answers them precisely and in such a way that it makes the teens learn whether they want to or not. I highly recommend it for new teacher CCD teachers as well as established CCD teachers.
