Your Life in Christ is a proven and preferred educational tool, having sold more than 82,000 copies to Catholic schools worldwide. From the pen of veteran religious educator Michael Pennock, the text offers students and educators alike an accessible, well-organized, and relevant read infused with new anecdotes, small group discussion questions, and learning strategies for multiple intelligences.
In its revised second edition, Your Life in Christ: Foundations of Catholic Morality offers teenagers practical suggestions for coping with the often-complex problems of faith, morality, and justice in the modern world. The text approaches these issues through focusing on God's love for people, while stressing the importance of loving one's neighbor and being true to one's beliefs in a modern society that is often indifferent to faith. Found in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church, the text remains true to doctrine while passionately petitioning teens to take a stand for morality by living the Church's teaching in everyday life.
Your Life in Christ: Foundations of Catholic Morality presents the major points of the "Life in Christ" section of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. To accomplish this task, the text has been organized into nine chapters, each a step on the road to becoming a moral Christian living within the context of Catholic teaching. These steps include:
1. Understanding the nature of being human,
2. Guiding moral decision-making with intellect,
3. Understanding the law's relationship to freedom and being responsible for transgressions,
4. Imitating Jesus and living the Beatitudes,
5. Forming the conscience and strengthening resistance to peer pressure,
6. Repenting and forgiving others,
7. Thanking God for life by loving God above all else,
8. Loving yourself, and
9. Loving your neighbors.
