Teaching Angels at Primary School

ALOPB1IoG1Review by Éanna Johnson, published in The Sower, January – March 2005 issue. The review examines the teaching on angels and demons at primary school level in two catechetical series: the Image of God series (published by Ignatius Press), and the Alive-O programme (published by Veritas). The Image of God is found to be excellent in introducing children to the Catholic Church’s teaching on angels. The Alive-O programme is found not to be faithful to the teaching of the Church, and unfair to the children by keeping them in almost complete ignorance of the truths about angels and demons (the fallen angels).
