John Baptist de La Salle wrote his catechism (The Duties of a Christian to God) at a time of unprecedented production of such texts. Brother Jean Pungier discusses the major influences on the Founder’s catechism and demonstrates how De La Salle carefully selected and modified the content he chose to include. The work concentrates on Part II of The Duties of a Christian of God, which resembles the traditional catechism manual in question-and-answer format.
