Lisa Mladinich has done it again! Simple, easy to understand and beautifully illustrated, Be An Amazing Catechist: Sacramental Preparation is perfect for parish catechists, as well as religion teachers and homeschooling parents. This book is not just for beginning catechists. It is for anyone who wishes to share the beauty of the sacraments which are so essential to our Catholic Faith.
This book’s press release says: “Both booklets are the perfect energizing and educational resources to get every catechist excited about sharing the Faith.” Lisa’s enthusiasm for her Faith shines through brightly in the pages of this gem of a book. Although every chapter is packed with helpful hints, my three favorite chapters are “Holy, Holy, Holy” (on teaching reverence to children), “Be Not Afraid” (where the author talks about how children and adults need help to overcome any fear of the confessional), and “Take and Eat” (on the Eucharist).
Again, there are appropriate quotes from Scripture, the Catechism and other documents as well as links to helpful resources.
I give “Be an Amazing Catechist: Sacramental Preparation” my highest recommendation and I encourage all catechists not only to read it but to buy copies in bulk!
