"Chris Wesley delivers a clear and practical vision of how our parishes can move from Confirmation as graduation to the sacrament as a purposeful piece of the full and life-long call to discipleship. This book is immediately applicable to everyone who wants to change the culture of sacramental preparation and watch the Holy Spirit work." --Craig Gould, Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry, Archdiocese of Baltimore "I trust Chris Wesley's vision because he is in the trenches of ministry every day. I encourage anyone, whether veteran or rookie, to pick up Rebuilding Confirmation and incorporate its wisdom into your own program. You will not be disappointed by what you find, and your parish will greatly benefit!" --Katie Prejean McGrady, Freshman theology teacher and author of Room 24 "This book is a wonderful paradigm shift from what most parishes have been doing for Confirmation. It is more than just another curriculum or program; it really gets into the theory and thought processes behind why we do Confirmation and how to make it work better. I highly recommend it!" --Brian Baudoin, Coordinator of Faith Formation, St. Mary Magdalene Church, Tyler, Texas
