"Jesus Christ: God's Revelation to the World" provides a map for high school students to navigate the wonderful work of God--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--in forming a People, giving a Law, and preparing for a Messiah. This text offers the perfect reading companion to the Bible--Old and New Testaments--through the lens of discovering the Lord, Jesus Christ. Developed in collaboration with esteemed religious educator, Michael Pennock, this course has been designed along with the U.S. Bishop's recommended high school curriculum framework, is rooted in Christology, and is written with the objective of strengthening a teen's friendship with Jesus. It has been found in conformity with the "Catechism of the Catholic Church." In addition, the text is perfect for a one-semester course on Scripture, as it surveys the entire scope of the Old Testament and New Testament. "Jesus Christ: God's Revelation to the World" begins, however, by centering the study of Scripture on a person's natural instinct to search for God. St. Augustine wrote: "Our hearts are restless until they find rest and satisfaction in God our Creator." This instinct leads students to a desire to uncover the path of God's Revelation, culminating in the Incarnation and the saving works of Jesus.
