Overview

In this book Francoise Darcy-Berube warns that religious education is at a dangerous crossroads. Choices made in catechetical style now, she counsels, will shape the faith of the Church well into the next century. A preeminent authority in religious education, Darcy-Berube responds to the challenges in religious education by offering a comprehensive statement of her theory and praxis for catechesis. She begins this insightful treatment by outlining the paradigm shift which she maintains has changed the nature of religious education over the last twenty-five years. Darcy-Berube then provides a clear critique of current trends in catechetics, highlighting the issues that need to be examined in the current catechetical climate. Religious Education at a Crossroads is a defining study, the fruit of Darcy-Berube's many years of experience in the catechetical field. In ten chapters the author argues for important changes both in our attitudes toward and structure of religious education at the family and parish levels. Darcy-Berube's conversational style lends an inviting warmth to a complex subject of central importance for today's Church. Balanced by a life of scholarship and broad experience in designing catechetical programs, her proposal for a holistic curriculum will appeal to parents, teachers, and students alike.
