The Mystery of Redemption and Christian Discipleship (Second Edition)
Core Subject III
This text examines Original Sin; the meaning of redemption; and how the salvific promise made to our first parents is fulfilled in the life, Death, Resurrection, and Ascension of Jesus Christ. It explains how the Church continues the redemptive mission of Jesus Christ in the world today and how his redemption is applied in our own lives. The text also looks at how we are called to be formed in the image of Christ, who is the exemplar of the Christian life, and to cooperate with God’s grace in every instance of our lives.

It has been 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.
