Website Review: Blest Are We

A review based on: http://www.blestarewe.com

Description

This well-designed site is the online presence of the widely-used catechetical series, Blest Are We. The series is published by RCL Benziger, a division of CFM Religion Publishing Group. It was acquired from Silver Burdett Ginn in 2007.

The focus of Blest Are We may be summed up as follows: community, service and social justice. The program aims to "respect diversity, working for social justice on a global scale and teaching effective skills of dialogue, negotiation and non-violent ways to bring about change." So much damage is done through bad catechesis. We recommend fighting to keep programs like these out of our Churches.

Originally reviewed by Marianna Bartold of Keeping It Catholic ('Blessed Are We' - A New Red Flag). (Series changed the name to "Blest Are We")

A lengthy critique from Aquinas and More Catholic Goods can be found here. Also in the Religious Education Critique section use the search engine to look for Blest are We for other results about this program.
