Catechism for Adults intends to highlight only the most significant aspects of the catechesis of adults. It touches on common issues, common problems, and probable solutions, which seem prevalent throughout the world, fully recognizing that inculturation will have to be made in the local Churches. The textbook is meant for the whole People of God more particularly adults who are interested in deepening their faith, under the guidance of their Pastors but more particularly meant to use it as an animator’s copy which will help the animator to catechize the adults.
These textbooks try to address the issues and concerns that Catholics are facing in their faith and life journey. The Emmaus Experience: Catechism for Adults will have three volumes (3 books). It consists of 104 modules. This textbook is an effective tool for bishops, priests, religious, catechists and all those involved in the catechetical ministry. It is also an excellent reference book for adult catechesis and an admirable gift to your teachers and parents.
