We all know that a one-size-fits-all approach to RCIA catechumenate formation doesn't work. But until now, many of us were stumped trying to find a viable alternative. Seek the Living God: Five RCIA Inquiry Questions for Making Disciples is the answer to your prayers.
After just a few meetings with your seekers, you will be able to easily create a customized faith formation plan that is tailored to the unique needs of each person. The best part is that the seekers do most of the work in developing their own plan. Your role shifts from being the Catholic "expert" to being a mentor and coach.
Once you understand how the five-question process works, you can easily train others to use it. New team members don't have to worry about "knowing enough" to be on the team. Start using these questions with your very next RCIA seeker. You will be amazed at the powerful conversion that will happen with your inquirers-and with you.

'Seek the Living God is a creative and practical resource for those who lead the Period of the Precatechumenate (Inquiry) in the RCIA. Nick Wagner shares great insight and experience as he breaks open this important time of evangelization. He provides extremely helpful questions, examples, tools, and ideas for the period of inquiry, which all too often looks like 'Catholic classes' rather than a time of encountering the living God, hearing the Good News of Jesus Christ, and opening one's life to the power of the Holy Spirit. This book will help RCIA leaders and teams to avoid the temptation of a 'one size fits all' precatechumenate, and will enable them to recognize and bring out the many hues of those who seek the living God.' -- Karen Kane, Director of the Office for Divine Worship and Sacraments, Archdiocese of Cincinnati
