More Positive Reviews for Beyond the Catechist’s Toolbox!

I am grateful for 2 more very positive reviews of Beyond the Catechist’s Toolbox, from people I highly respect!

First, here’s a review from Jonathan Sullivan, the Director of Catechetical Services for the Diocese of Springfield, IL. He is also the chair of the  National Conference for Catechetical Leadership‘s Technology Committee and  host of the Catechetical Leader podcast. Jonathan is one of the finest minds in the country with relation to the effective use of technology in catechesis. Be sure to check out his Webinars archive! Thanks, Jonathan, for the good word!

Second, here is a review from Joyce Donahue, Catechetical Associate in the Diocese of Joliet, IL. I’ve known Joyce for many years and have always appreciated her keen sense of the relationship between catechesis and liturgy, which she blogs about at Liturgy & Catechesis Shall Kiss. Be sure to check out her companion Web site, The Liturgical Catechist. Thanks, Joyce, for the great review!

  1. Thanks, as always, for your kind words, Joe, and for the great gift you have given catechists through this book.

    One note: while I would be thrilled to have Joyce working in our diocese, it is the Diocese of Joliet that is blessed with her talents. =)
