The Road to Emmaus: Stay with Us, Lord! is a four-volume series intended for senior high school as they engage themselves more deeply in their theological or religious education courses.
Level/s: Senior High
- Revelation and Faith (Book 1) offers the students two fundamental truths. One, the divine revelation is God’s disclosure of Himself and of His eternal will through His word and works. Two, faith as a supernatural virtue given to us at Baptism is our response to God’s revelation. As a worktext, it also aims to help them integrate faith and life.
- Our Holy Catholic Church (Book 2) presents a picture of the Church that is solidly entrenched in the Sacred Scripture, the Sacred Tradition, and the Magisterium of the Church. How the students will acquire a sound doctrinal foundation of their knowledge of the Church is the primary objective of this book.
- Liturgy and Sacraments (Book 3) is essential so that the students will be able to understand and appreciate the life and mission of the Church, the sacraments, and the liturgy. It intends to lead the students to a deeper appreciation of the outward beauty of the liturgy, which will certainly bring them to the very heart of the liturgy, namely, the worship of God in “Spirit and truth” (Jn 4:24).
- Life and Beyond (Book 4) deals with the “last things” or eschatology. Its main objective is to present to the students the compelling, but often neglected truths about what lies beyond the present life. It helps the students live the present life with the “end” in mind because the eschatological realities are not just “future things,” but truths that are deeply embedded in the “here and now” of our Christian life and faith.
