I was recently approached by our volunteer catechism teacher after his first year and he was wondering if he could switch from the Faith Alive "HC and Me" material to a book that he had found. It is called "The Heidelberg Catechism: A Study Guide" by G.I. Williamson.
It seems to me that the book is quite above and beyond a grade 7/8 level (from what I've gleaned of skimming through it). Any experience out there with this particular book? It may serve as a great background resource for the teacher, but not as a primary teaching tool for that age group.
Any suggestions for alternative teaching resources if HC and Me doesn't seem to be a good fit?
