Description: In this readable and timely work, Thomas Groome explores the basis of Catholic education, from the historical Jesus to the Didache, to Augustine and Aquinas to Merici, Seton, and Ward. Groome shows how these foremothers and fathers of Catholic education ground and shape the spirituality of Catholic educators today. It is these foundations that ensure that Catholic schools today deliver the education they promise to students—not only to Catholics but to those of many religious traditions.

“What Makes Education Catholic” outlines a Catholic anthropology, sociology, cosmology, and epistemology. It demonstrates how all of us—educators and students, families and communities---serve a public faith that does justice and that is humanising and emancipatory for one’s own good, for the common good, and for all creation.
