About the Author
Caryll Houselander (1901 1954) was an English artist who became one of the most popular Catholic spiritual writers of modern times. Although in poor health for most of her short life, her literary and artistic output was remarkable. Beginning in 1927 until her death in 1954, she wrote and published constantly. With the publication of This War Is the Passion in 1941, she became one of the most popular and highly respected religious writers of the period.

While it is not an ARKive book from Sophia Institute Press, this book was originally published in 1936 under a different title. I think knowing that can be useful information for parents who are looking for books with good sound catechesis. Most Catholic children are getting a watered down version of their faith in religious education classes and a book like this is a real find in the sea of Catholic books available for children today. As I read through the book I stopped many times to marvel at how well the book meshes with the Baltimore Catechism. I've recently begun to teach my daughter from the Baltimore Catechism and I loved how well this book supports it and in some ways makes it easier for her to understand.
My daughter hasn't finished reading this book yet but she has enjoyed the chapters that she has read. She says it's a very easy book to read. She likes looking at the black and white picture that is at the beginning of each chapter and she really enjoys looking for the additional pictures hidden within the drawing that are listed in the appendix.
I think this book would be a lovely addition to a homeschooler's religious education materials. It works as a nice supplemental source of catechesis for children in religious education classes, too. In fact, I think this would be a wonderful book to give to a child who is preparing for his or her first communion.Read more ›
This book is utterly amazing and I highly recommend it. I do not have the theological background to do justice to it by trying to explain it to you and anything I do say about it will only be a small portion of just how beautiful and spiritually captivating and instructional it really is. This is a twelve lesson course and we did one lesson a school week, thus with the occasional week off it took us just over 3 months to complete. During that period of time, my son's knowledge of God & Jesus has blossomed and intensified. He has formed from a childish knowledge of his faith to a more mature and personal devotion to the Lord which gradually became evident throughout the study of these lessons. He understands concepts he never quite got before. He knows what Love and Hope are, he knows who to pray for, he appreciates the glory of the sacraments and the importance of the Holy Eucharist with a true heart of someone who cannot live without the food the Lord provides for our souls. He speaks of the Lord with knowledge and truth. He has reached a new stage in his religious life and I am so thankful to this book which engaged him on all levels.
Briefly how the book works. Each lesson is the same. We start off with an illustrated picture and these are incredibly intricate and detailed pictures which one is asked to study the first day. The picture also has a caption to go along with it to help your thought process.Read more ›
However, it does get a bit intense with all the sin dragging yourself and the world down to the pits of hell business. It's something I can discuss with my 4th grader, but my 6 year old son finds it frightening...yet can't look away. I'd recommend it for 9+, especially if you're not going to sit with them and simultaneously explain the finer points of grace to them.
