Bishops

It is with great appreciation for your much-needed work that I send this communication to verify the Catholic Schools Textbook Project (also known as Catholic Textbook Project) is a DBA Entity of the 501(c)(3) corporation, Institute for Catholic Liberal Education, and in good standing with the Catholic Church and her teachings.

The Catholic Textbook Project operates within the Santa Barbara Pastoral Region of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and sells its textbooks to dioceses and homeschoolers throughout the United States.

I am pleased to say that over forty schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles have been using these textbooks. It is anticipated that an additional twenty Archdiocesan schools will start using the textbooks in the 2013-2014 school year.

May God grant you continued success and may He richly bless your good work for our future Catholic leaders.

Most Reverend José H. Gomez, Archbishop of Los Angeles

It was a pleasure to see you at the Knights of Columbus Convention in Anaheim during the summer. Thank you also for sending the latest textbook you have introduced. I have had occasion to read through it, and I find it most impressive. I wish it a wide and attentive readership, and I will be happy to share it with the Superintendent of Schools in the Archdiocese of Baltimore.

With gratitude for all your work to bring the light of truth to young minds and hearts, and with kindest personal regards…

—Most Reverend William E. Lori, Archbishop of Baltimore

The Catholic Textbook Project is a gift to Catholic students across the United States.  These history textbooks offer students the richness of the accomplishments and challenges which have faced our country from its inception, and those which have affected the history of the world .  The textbooks  portray events from a factual, historical and, most importantly, Catholic perspective. The quality of scholarship and the use of noted authors and expert consultants, introduce the student to primary and verified sources of recorded history in a refreshingly coherent and appealing way.  

The importance of an historical perspective that is written with unapologetic truth in an academic format is of great significance for the classrooms of our Catholic schools.  It is gratifying to know that such a textbook series exists, and continues to publish the editions which will serve all the elementary and high school levels.  

It is worthy of daily use by all and especially by Catholic teachers and students. I wholeheartedly endorse the Catholic Textbook Project for the Diocese of Lincoln and recommend it to dioceses across the country. 

Most Reverend James Conley, Bishop of Lincoln

Please receive my sincere appreciation for the Catholic Textbook Project Sampler CD and brochure; I am grateful for the materials, and will share the information on this valuable resource with my staff in the Catholic Schools Department.

May Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Star of the New Evangelization, strengthen your faith, renew your hope, and fill your heart with joy and peace.

 — Most Reverend Michael C. Barber, S.J., Bishop of Oakland
