Website Review: FindingGod

A review based on: http://www.findinggod.org

Description

This website is Loyola Press’s venue for their catechetical series, “Finding God: Our Response to God’s Gifts.” The program is described as “a new parish and school faith formation program for children in grades 1-8 and the significant adults in their lives.” Loyola Press further states, ”We are committed to service by publishing resources that support children's faith formation, language arts education, whole community catechesis, and the ongoing spiritual growth of adults through books and resources on a wide variety of topics including prayer, Catholic life, history, and Ignatian spirituality.”

This glitzy website does have some worthwhile resources, but you have to know your faith to take advantage of them because much of what is here is tainted. For example, in the DRE section can be found resources such as Monica Hellwig’s interpretation of St. Ignatius of Loyola’s spirituality. This certainly leads us to question how good the catechetical series could actually be.
