As Pope St. John Paul II made clear in his apostolic exhortation Catechesi Tradendae, “The definitive aim of catechesis is to put people not only in touch but in communion, in intimacy, with Jesus Christ.”
The Formed in Christ series seeks to fulfill this call, fostering intimacy with Christ through its dynamic content. Each of the texts is complimented by a comprehensive workbook designed to provide instructors with test material and direction for enhancing students’ grasp of the material.
In A Light to the Nations, the relationship of the Catholic Church with other ecclesial communities and non-Christian religions is clearly and thoughtfully outlined. Readers will learn about Salvation History and the founding of the Catholic Church, and how she experienced schisms, divisions, and sometimes-fraught relations with other faiths—and how this is not the end of the story. With a detailed and balanced approach, the book lays out principles for dialogue with our brothers and sisters from different faith traditions. Always with an eye to communion and reunification, A Light to the Nations shows how ecumenism and interreligious dialogue can be respectful, illuminating, and fruitful for all.
