There are many wonderful publications now available about Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, especially about the child, but there hasn’t been a publication available until Like Leaven that provides a thoughtful, serious look at the adult’s formation in this method. Patricia Coulter’s research with seven catechists explores the experience of formation for adults who accompany children on their spiritual journey that not only prepares adults to nurture children, but also reveals how children nurture adults through this method of catechesis. This “mutually formative” experience is what has given rise to the National Association of Catechesis of the Good Shepherd’s purpose, which is “To involve adults and children in a common religious experience in which the religious values of childhood, particularly contemplation of and enjoyment of God, predominate.”

This book demonstrates through both the observations of the adults working with children, and their reflections and experiences from their adult formation courses, just how catechist formation can elicit a response of a lifelong commitment.  This is an important resource for anyone interested in Catechesis of the Good Shepherd and the kind of formation it offers, especially for catechists and formation leaders.
