Encountering Jesus Series


Developed for Curriculum Framework Course 4: Jesus Christ's Mission Continues in the Church. Students deepen their understanding of Jesus Christ, the fullness of God's Revelation, as they encounter him in the living Body of Christ, the Catholic Church. As they engage with the content of this text, students will recognize Christ present and active in their lives through the visible and vibrant mission of the Church, defined by her four characteristics--one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. Places the foundations of the church in their historical and scriptural context and goes further by guiding students to recognize the sacred nature of the church and engaging them to more actively participate in the living Body of Christ. The goal of the book is to change the lives of students by making real-life connections between what they are learning and how they encounter Jesus in the world.
