"The Ad Hoc Committee to Oversee the Use of the Catechism, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has found this catechetical textbook, Written on Our Hearts, copyright 2002, to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church." Does the Old Testament seem distant for your teens? Written on Our Hearts is a completely revised edition of The Hebrew Scriptures: The Biblical Story of God's Promise to Israel and Us. An in-depth course that brings to life the books of the Old Testament, this full-color student text covers the most important Scripture stories and passages of the Old Testament and guides students as they read the Bible. The one-semester course can be taught to ninth graders but is ideal for tenth- and eleventh-grade students. This new edition, which gives added emphasis to the context and spiritual meaning of the Old Testament, includes a more extensive discussion of the Ten Commandments. Sidebars featuring prayers in the Old Testament have been added, along with historical and biblical timelines. Review questions, reflective activities, and a full-color design with maps, charts, photos, and artwork will help make the Old Testament come alive for students. The accompanying teaching manual fully supports the student text and includes numbered references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, prayers, prayer services, review questions and answers, student activities, discussion questions, role-play situations, suggestions for interviews and guest speakers, student handouts, and much more. Changes to the 2002 edition The student text for Written on Our Hearts 2002 edition includes the following revisions: The discussion of the Ten Commandments includes a more extensive treatment of their application to morality today, incorporating more points from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. A new sidebar discusses feminine images of God in the Old Testament. In chapter 2, the passage about Abraham's test has been expanded to discuss Abraham's near-sacrifice of Isaac as an example of his great trust in God, as well as a foreshadowing of Jesus' saving sacrifice on the cross. At the same time, the text draws on biblical scholarship to address students' concerns that God approves of child sacrifice. The discussion of the prophet Jeremiah now makes reference to the "new covenant" being fulfilled in the person of Jesus. The total changes amount to approximately 2 percent of the book.
