Ian from the Aquinas and More Catholic Goods website has started a new Wiki called The Catholic Catechetical Review
This Wiki is meant to be a repository for reviews of Catholic religious education materials. This includes material listed in the United States Bishops’ Conference Conformity Listing of Catechetical Texts and Series as well as resources that are not on the list.
The reason for this project is that there is not any resource for those who not only want to know that a text doesn’t contradict the Catechism of the Catholic Church, but also whether the content of the program is complete, accurate and actually of substance.
This review will help those looking at the Catechetical texts on the USCCB’s Catechetical list for actual quality of the series. This is seriously needed since as Ian notes quoting a bishop:
Placing a text or series on the approved list does not constitute an endorsement. Similar to an imprimatur, it means only that the series is in conformity with the Catechism and does not contradict it. This is a negative statement and should be understood that way.
Previously Amy Welborn noted the quality of one approved series and its serious deficiency. So if you have had experience with any series of Catechetical texts please help out by giving it a review on The Catholic Catechetical Review Wiki.
