In my award winning book, Experts in Humanity, I distinguish between the external curriculum of our faith, and the internal curriculum. The external curriculum, I explain, consists of catechesis and doctrine. This content has been handed down throughout the centuries, beginning with early Christian writers, Sacred Scripture, the teaching of bishops at councils, creeds, liturgy, and liturgical art. These pillars of Sacred Tradition hand on what theologian Yves Congar calls “the living memory of our faith.” This content is vital to the transmission of our faith, from generation to generation.
There is, however, a complementary curriculum, the internal curriculum, that is, instruction on the inner life: how to be; how to live; how to love; how to pray. The internal curriculum is the focus of my book, Experts in Humanity.
Over the past few years, I’ve continued to research and build on the content of my book, exploring in more depth the various factors that influence human behaviour. This research has inspired the creation of a new online course, The Experts in Humanity ProjectTM. If you are interested in learning more, please visit the course page on my website. I look forward to hearing from you. Please consider taking this journey with fellow truth seekers. The course begins in January 2022 and meets every other Monday night at 7pm EST, beginning on January 24.
