Overview


 Joe Paprocki, best-selling author of The Catechist’s Toolbox series, has written the first, step-by-step book that demonstrates how to teach a 75-minute catechetical session with practical techniques that expand upon the textbook to create a more prayerful climate in the classroom. Beyond the Catechist’s Toolbox enables young people to personally encounter Jesus in prayer, rather than just read about him, in order to become lifelong disciples of Christ. 

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is short and packed with great ideas.  It will encourage DRE and catechists to lead their students closer to Christ through not only informing them but helping them be drawn into an encounter with the living God and long for more."

- William O’Leary, Catechesis in the Third Millennium

"Beyond the Catechist’s Toolbox is an excellent resource and, at just 90 pages, a great gift for catechists and Catholic school teachers. I heartily recommend its use in parishes and schools as another way of taking catechesis beyond the school model and back to its evangelizing roots."
- Jonathan F. Sullivan, Director of Catechetical Services, Springfield, IL

"I recommend that every catechist read [Beyond the Catechist's Toolbox] with a prayerful openness and decide which elements he or she can comfortably begin to introduce into their sessions. That could only improve the experience of learning about faith."
- Joyce Donahue, Catechetical Associate, Diocese of Springfield, IL

 "All the ideas in Beyond the Catechist's Toolbox are simple, and the instructions are clear. Though this resource is designed for catechists, it has much to offer to parents and Catholic school teachers as well."
- Carol Blank, WritingWorks
