Description  more details

This book presents sixth-graders with the blueprint for a life of love: the law of God, especially in the Ten Commandments, and the presence of Jesus in the Holy Mass. The book also demonstrates the interaction of the challenges of God's law and His gifts of grace that help us fulfill His law. The students are taught to love the law as Christ did and to cherish and love the Mass as our best prayer to God, and especially to revere and adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament.


Unit 1: The Ten Commandments. Forming the conscience and increasing closeness to God.

Unit 2: The Holy Mass. An emphasis on the Real Presence and Christ's sacrifice and explanation of the parts of the Mass.

Unit 3: The Last Things. Death and God's judgment of us, with an empahsis on the great happiness of Heaven.

Activity Book: The activity book is designed for use in the home or classroom and provides creative activities for review and reinforcement of each lesson. Through carefully developed and selected activities, the emphasis is on understanding and putting into practice the teachings of Christ in everyday life.

About the Faith and Life Series: The Faith and Life religion series has been hailed as a breakthrough in the field of religious education. It is a comprehensive Catholic program that combines beautiful classical and original artwork with a solid doctrinal and scriptural presentation in an easy-to-read and stimulating format praised by teachers, students, and parents everywhere. Throughout the series, every aspect of Christian life is addressed: What we believe (the Creed), what we do (the Commandments), the means to our end (Sacraments and Liturgy), and what we hope for (Prayer and Scripture).

The Faith and Life Series features:

  • Clear, comprehensive and exciting presentation of the Catholic Faith, tailored to the different grade levels, with a foundational emphasis on Scripture and Vatican II
  • Quotations from Scripture, the liturgy, church documents and the saints highlight important points in each lesson
  • Inspirational classical and original artwork and photographs connect the lessons to the life of Christ and of the Christian
  • Questions and answers at the end of the chapters help review vital material and aid retention
  • Helpful summary sections include: Prayers and Devotions, Liturgical and Seasonal Life of the Church, Words to Know
  • Follows guidelines laid out by the General Catechetical Directory, Pope John Paul II’s Catechesi Tradendae, and the U.S. National Catholic Directory.

Newly Revised!: While much of the text, including the use of traditional language and themes, remains unchanged, it is hoped that the revised edition will be easier to use for both students and teachers. The great works of art that appear in the original edition are maintained in the revised edition. Keeping in mind the popularity of the original edition of the Faith and Life textbooks, Ignatius Press has made only minor alterations to the revised student texts. The majority of the revisions within the student texts appear in the question and answer segments of the book. Each question and answer set is now related directly to the Catechism of the Catholic Church (Second Edition) and tied specifically to the material covered in each chapter. Further, the questions and answers are now more age appropriate to each grade level.

Other changes in the new edition of the student texts include:

  • The setting of key terms in boldface to allow students and teachers easy access to important terminology within the text
  • Grammatical refinements in some portions of the texts
  • More direct quotations from Holy Scripture (from the Ignatius Revised Standard Version)
