The best-selling Catechism of the Catholic Church offers not only a new, definitive account for our times of the full teaching of the Catholic faith, but it is also a superbly crafted work from which to learn and to teach the faith. Teaching the faith in a systematic way - "catechesis" - is a craft and, like any craft, it requires the development of skills on the part of those who desire to excel in it. The Catechism of the Catholic Church shows catechists and others what to teach. This book examines the important issue of how to teach it (pedagogy). A must for every teacher who wants to be more effective in handing on the faith to others.
