Book Summary

Catechization is one way of translating, transmitting, and communicating the faith. This includes the message we hand down from generation to generation within the church ("traditioning" the biblical and churchly stories) and the message we hand out to those without the church and its faith (telling the good news of God's love in Christ). Church history records the church's growth and strength--or their opposites--as it attempts to carry out God's mission in the world. Faithfulness in that tradition is central to the church's life and health. The word "catechism" can refer to any handbook for teaching the fundamentals of a subject, but it has come to be used for teaching basic religious principles. Such handbooks--condensations of the Christian message with questions and answers--have long been a part of the Christian tradition, based on the Ten Commandments, the Apostles' Creed, and the Lord's Prayer, plus explanations of the sacraments. Christians have used this tool to teach and learn the faith for centuries. Negative experiences in Confirmation classes have soured some church members on their value, but they can be handbooks of hope for new generations looking for answers.
