Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Michael Francis Pennock (1945-2009) was the author of several bestselling textbooks for Catholic high schools, including, Encountering Jesus in the New Testament, Your Life in Christ, Our Catholic Faith, and three recent texts to support the new US Bishops' curriculum framework. He remains one of the most respected names in catechetical circles.

Pennock taught theology for more than thirty-five years, mostly at his beloved alma mater, St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, Ohio. His students, numbering more than fifteen thousand, continue to pour out their remembrances and support for the man they called "Doc Pennock."

Every topic is self explanatory, plain and easy and interesting.
Everything you need to know is there and the layout is very nice. It follows the Catholic Catechism very nicely.

Format: Paperback
First to say, this is a developmental teaching textbook, which was selected for my son's 10th grade Catholic school religion class, and as such it is a spot on perfect choice.

It is highly accessible, intelligent, well written, organized, honest, responsible and contemporary. It is not a book of apologetics per-se, dogma or piety, rather, a very positive, complete, reader-engaging, discussion-ready teaching of the factors that go into making good, informed, morally sound decisions and evaluations. Pitfalls to the process are clearly addressed. It is based in solid, educated Christian Catholic understanding of individual worth and Christ's teachings applied in real life. It has remarkable wealth of example and quotes that inform the subject at hand, as well as good scope and clear direction. It doesn't balk at taking up tough questions, and provides the means of making decisions--and litmus tests for judging those decisions--while leaving the conclusions open to the reader.

In other words, it teaches (among other things)developing an informed conscience, growing the confidence to stand one's ground having formed sound convictions, to apply good skills in discerning good and fair laws, to choose good values and to live well in ones family and community. It is absolutely excellent from a Catholic perspective, and likely many others. I have kept a copy of the book for my use, and have given it as a gift to other parents, as a review of the moral foundation of why we live as we do.

As there is no product description, here is a generic one I found at another book site:

Your Life in Christ introduces high school students to the essential message of Christian moral teaching,love of God and love of neighbor.
