The goodness of creation, Original Sin, and the promise of a messiah are the starting points for this course, which explores our salvation through the Paschal Mystery. The students encounter the mystery and glory of the suffering, death, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus Christ. The course also explores how the Paschal Mystery informs our daily lives, our prayer, and our participation in the life of the Church.
The second edition of our popular Living In Christ series offers updated navigation, organizing and synchronizing curriculum across both teacher guides and student books. The student books have shifted from a section-part-article structure to a unit-chapter-article structure where sections become units and a part is now a chapter.
In addition to the complete text of the print book, the Interactive Edition adds the following features:
- In-text links to official, online versions of Scripture, the Catechism, and Church documents so that students can study quotes from the text in their original context.
- In-text links to online biographies of all the saints mentioned in the student text.
- Photo galleries that explore topics in the text.
- PowerPoint presentations that review key concepts.
- Links to online videos that explore people or concepts in greater depth.

By Sr. Katherine Feely, SND, high school educator
Living in Christ is a remarkable new curriculum designed to meet the faith formation needs of today's students while equipping the teacher with an extensive yet flexible array of ideas, resources, and content. This series is student-centered and attentive to the variety of ways students engage the content of their faith. It lays a strong catechetical foundation, integrating Scripture and Tradition through content development, relevant praxis, and reflection. It is well designed to form disciples for the 21st century. The method, approach, and content engage the head as well as the heart. Living in Christ draws upon the experience and expertise of the teacher and provides every tool necessary to lead students into the learning process, providing an encounter with Christ that will lead them to discover the relevance of living their faith for a lifetime.

The Living in Christ curriculum is more than another textbook series. Scholarly without being abstract and engaging without being overbearing, it serves as the ideal intersection of bringing the Good News into any classroom while recognizing that students come from diverse backgrounds with unique learning styles. It reclaims the great biographies in the communion of saints while inviting students to examine their own spiritual formation. This is the perfect intellectual companion for the high school classroom: grounded in the Catechism while challenging students to reflect on their relationship with God in a rational and authentic way. For teachers, it serves as the ideal resource for teaching adolescents in the 21st century by laying the foundation for religious instruction in terms of what is essential to know, but still providing numerous options to build upon! From prayer activities and doctrinal clarifications to the unique charism of Catholicism and the individuals that constitute the Church, Living in Christ stands out as the vanguard for what high school theology should look like. Students will be drawn to the concise format of the books and the sidebar topics, covering everything from key historical events to models of spirituality. I would be amazed if this series does not become the benchmark for other religion textbooks.
