Catalyst: "Questions on the Way: A Catechism Based on the Book of Common Prayer, Revised Edition" from Forward Movement, by Beverley D. Tucker & William H. Swatos, Jr., 139 pages, paperback, c. 2006, $5

[Source: Forward Movement] -- This book is a resource for inquirers, confirmands, and all who want to know more about the Christian faith as the Episcopal Church has received it. Responding simply and directly to the basic questions people have as they consider their religious lives, this book serves not to replace the catechism as found in the Book of Common Prayer, but to draw from it and urge all members of the church to know it well.
