A Post-Covid Catechesis Book
A Post-COVID Catechesis, by the Rev. Canon Dr. Victor Austin, This book offers an intelligent, traditional, and yet not predictable account of five basic Christian beliefs that can help us, not to return to a pre-pandemic comfort zone, but to rediscover old truths as if for the first time. Austin shows that to believe in God as Creator is to begin an adventure. Then sin is exposed to be nothing substantial but rather a hole in reality. Third: God is active in the mess of things; fourth, God has shown, in Jesus, what a real human being is. Finally, this adventure is throughout an ongoing discovery that in Jesus Christ people have their true friend.
Each chapter includes open-ended discussion questions, making this volume easily used for group study. In addition, as our diocesan theologian-in-residence Canon Austin is available (at no charge) to visit congregations to discuss these old yet ever-new basic claims of Christianity.
