Annual Volume 59 of the College Theology Society, this book of collected essays will explore the theme of how theology and catechesis interact. Is theology “handing on the faith,” or is the vocation of the theologian something more/different? What are the challenges and convergences for theology and catechesis in the classroom?Consisting of fifteen essays originally delivered as papers at the College Theology Society annual meeting in Omaha, NE in May 2013, this book will offer the reflections and analyses of teachers across a broad spectrum of experience, background, and personal convictions vis-à-vis the importance of catechesis in the college classroom.
