Best books for High School Students


By Joshua Powers, Oradell, NJ

l cannot say enough about depth and content of the Live Jesus in Our Hearts Series. These are the best High School texts available on the market. The content is engaging and challenging for students which is great at the High School level. As a Religion Educator in my 24th year of teaching my journey has and continues to be with Saint Mary's Press as the go to for our curriculum



By Brittany, Arizona

It is AMAZING! The student texts are easy to read, relatable, and reaches students where they are at. The vocabulary terms are clearly defined and the main concepts from each unit are in line with the Bishop's objectives. The teacher's manual is OUTSTANDING. Being able to download and manipulate the presentations, quizzes, tests, and worksheets saves teachers an immense amount of time and the activities are fun, academic, and promote faith growth. SMP will always be my number one choice for high school texts. Thank you for allowing me to teach minds and touch young hearts through your materials!


By Roger, MN

I find it a great foundation on which to build a theology course. The textbook is attractive and readable, while remaining faithful to the Church and providing a solid theology to students. The use of Scripture connects students to the Christian tradition that is both rich and life-giving.


By Marie, DE

We are currently using “Revelation & the OT” for the first time this year. We are thrilled with how approachable it is by such a wide range of levels. It is such a refreshing text. The perspectives offered give students an opportunity engage theologically deep topics in a developmentally appropriate way. Thank you!


By Gail, AZ

So happy with these texts: My students are engaged, apply the reading to their life, and are able to comprehend the Catholic Faith more easily with the glossary, PowerPoints, Quizlets, and reading questions that follow each chapter. KUDOS!
