The Reason Series Faculty Resource Manual
The Solution: The Reason Series. A video series showing that the latest scientific evidence points to a Creator and an eternal soul.
The Reason Series is a 5-Part comprehensive, age-appropriate program designed to empower teachers to effortlessly provide students the evidence they need to be more certain about a transcendent super-intelligent creative power - God. Our young people are in serious need of a defense of their faith that is both contemporary and scientific - otherwise they may fall victim to the false claims and mis-impressions created by an increasingly secular society. A large percentage of our young people will become agnostics and even atheists if we do not respond to them with the best evidence that science has to offer.
Based on the award winning book, New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy, by Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D., The Reason Series follows college freshman Joe as he learns to defend his faith from his atheistic roommate Tyler with the help of physics and philosophy grad students Dan and Alana.
Faculty Resource Manual. Includes summaries of the content from each unit, explanation of terms, many biographies of physicists, discussion questions, class exercises, and sample exams and answers. It also includes a password for every faculty member to log onto an online forum to obtain answers to questions and engage in discussion.
USCCB Approval: The USCCB Subcommittee for Catechetical Conformity gives approval only for curricula, text book series, teacher’s manuals, or student workbooks that concern a whole course of studies. Partial curricula and programs may obtain ecclesiastical approval by imprimatur from the local Bishop. Since The Reason Series is such a partial curriculum, its ecclesiastical approval by the USCCB is validated by its imprimatur. Imprimatur for this program has been granted by † Most Reverend Tod D. Brown, Bishop of Orange, California on July 11, 2012.
