Didache Series: History of the Church Student Book

This comprehensive history of the Catholic Church includes every major event in the Church’s history from the life of her founder, Jesus Christ, to the present day. This text places the Church in her context throughout history and explains the role that the Church and her leaders have played in the shaping of history for better and worse.

Complete with maps, timelines, sidebars, paintings, and photographs, The History of the Church is a critical historical resource for Catholic and non-Catholic historians alike.

The Didache Complete Course Series is a series of four high school textbooks, teacher's manuals, student workbooks, and teacher's answer guides published by Midwest Theological Forum. Each title spans one academic year. As of 2009, they were being used in about one-third Catholic high schools.

This textbook is published with ecclesiastical approval from the Archdiocese of Chicago, and it has been granted conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church by the USCCB Subcommittee on the Catechism.

Written in the first century, the Didache [DID-uh-kay] is the first known Christian catechesis and the earliest known Christian writing outside of Scripture. The name of the work, Didache, is appropriate for such a catechesis because it comes from the Greek word for “teaching” and indicates that this writing contains the teaching of the Apostles and, as such, it is the teaching of the Church.

Today, the most comprehensive catechesis is the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Didache Series which now offers both full year courses (four subjects) and semester courses (6 subjects) based on the USCCB high school curricula guidelines, presents the life and doctrine of the Catholic Church in the context of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the teachings of Vatican II as witnessed by the pontificate of Pope John Paul II and the continuing witness of Pope Benedict XVI. The Didache Series also draws from Sacred Scripture, the lives of the Saints, and the Doctors and Fathers of the Church.

The Didache Series is ideal for high school and adult education, seminaries and colleges, RCIA, catechism classes, and home schooling. “The Ad Hoc Committee to oversee the Use of the Catechism, United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has found [these texts] to be in conformity with the Catechism of the Catholic Church.”

The beauty and quality of these colorful hardbound books qualify them as true art books and make them perfect for gift-giving. The art and knowledge of over 2,000 years has been compiled in The Didache Series. These inspiring, sometimes breathtaking, books will become treasured additions to family and parish libraries-—to be passed along from generation to generation.

"It's a textbook series like no other, because all four books are solidly orthodox...lavishly illustrated with beautiful artwork and photography, maps, charts and diagrams..." [Comments on the initial full year course curriculum]
