The course Understanding Catholic Christianity offers a comprehensive overview of Catholicism for ninth graders, to serve as a foundation for the other high school religion courses and faith formation experiences they will have. It also provides a common vocabulary for articulating the essentials of Catholic teaching. This extensively revised edition of Understanding Catholic Christianity was developed using the Catechism of the Catholic Church as a primary source and roughly parallels its four-part structure: CCC part one, "The Profession of Faith." Eight chapters of the course treat the topics of faith, the human person as an adolescent, the Jewish roots of Catholic Christianity, the Incarnation, Jesus Christ's life and ministry, his death and Resurrection, the Holy Spirit in the church, and the roles of the sacred Scriptures and Tradition as ways in which God's revelation is communicated. CCC part two, "The Celebration of the Christian Mystery." Two chapters of the course treat the topics of the sacraments and the liturgical year. CCC part three, "Life in Christ." One chapter of the course focuses on Christian morality. CCC part four, "Christian Prayer." One chapter of the course focuses on spirituality and prayer. The course is designed to cover the basics of Catholic belief and practice while engaging students where they are in their life and leading them to discover how the rich heritage of Catholic Christianity relates to their life. The text does not assume a Catholic background or a committed faith in its readers, but it can bring Catholic and non-Catholic young people alike to a deeper appreciation of Catholicism's beliefs, rituals, moral vision, and prayer life. For each chapter, the student text provides the following features: Stories, writings by teens, fifty outstanding artworks by students, and intriguing original art bring the material alive for students. Activities in the text margins encourage personal reflection on the course concepts. Review questions at the end of each major section of a chapter aid in cognitive mastery.
