Ascend: The Catholic Faith for a New Generation is a contemporary, scripture-rich, and dramatically visual exploration of the Catholic faith for young adults. With its engaging style, full-color graphics, and interesting sidebar articles, Ascend covers the basics of Christianity from a viewpoint that is Catholic yet ecumenically minded. There are chapter profiles on Christian role models from both ancient and modern times, and informative discussions of contemporary events from a Christian perspective. Discussion questions and book recommendations are included for each chapter; there is also an extensive glossary. Though oriented to young adults, Ascend provides an overview of Christianity that will appeal to all ages, Christians and non-Christians alike.
