I saw that one reviewer said it was "dense" reading. I agree. But it is dense because it is so full of wonderful material. Take it slow. Read and "chew" it meditatively. Drink it in deeply. It gives the big picture on teaching the faith. It's is more than just teaching weekly CCD or RCIA class. It is about witnessing Christ to people who need to hear our message. It's easy to develop a limited (dare I say parochial?) view based on our own little world. This general directory gives a much bigger/broader picture. A world-wide, centuries-long, effort to share the "good news" of salvation. Thought provoking, challenging, just like our faith!

I read the General Directory for Catechesis as part of a seminar class. I had an instructor and fellow students to help me read the GDC and make sense of it. Reflecting the ideas from this book with the National Directory of Catechesis was critical to my understanding of the Church's international direction for religious education. The GDC tells you the Church's international plan for religious education, and the NDC applies it to the American situation. I recommend buying them together. That said I was pleased to learn the Church puts adult catechesis above all else and considers all other religious education activities to radiate from the primary emphasis on grown-ups!

Kind of dry, with a lot of detail, and packed with information.

This is a great resource for those who want to know more about our Catholic faith. It's also a necessity when compiling lesson plans for religion class. It helps to pull everything together.

It was as good as a brand new book but less than half the price.

The General Directory for Catechesis is another good reference to have when teaching the Catholic Christian faith.
