All About Faith

The book fulfils the requirements of both the Department of Education and Science syllabus and the Catechetical Guidelines of the Irish Catholic Bishops.

The text has been thoroughly revised and restructured, and simplified where necessary. Some new material has also been added.

The idea of ‘Communities of Faith’ is introduced from the outset and then integrated throughout the text.

This one-volume edition of All About Faith is suitable for mixed-ability classes. It follows a graded approach, reflecting both the student’s growing understanding of religion and the questioning climate of today’s classroom.

Both examination-type questions and reflective exercises are included, making the book suitable for both examination and non-examination classes.

Attractive full-colour design with numerous photographs and illustrations.
