Read these Amazing Reviews from Catholic Teachers
I just finished reading Jonathan Doyle’s new book Tools & Fuels last night. It is a truly inspirational book with simple advice for anyone involved in Catholic education.If you are a Catholic teacher, you MUST read this book. If there is one book you read this summer (other than the Bible) read this book!
I read this on Kindle and love it! I am the chaplain at a Catholic high school and could not have written a better analysis of the problem and solution Mr. Doyle so expertly enunciates.
Absolutely excellent read ! Rejuvenates the spirit and gives focus to our purpose as teachers
This is a wonderful, vibrant book which is well written, easy to read and it doesn’t take long to read. It is written by someone who is, obviously, strongly committed to the Church and Catholic education. It is a book which should be of interest to all Catholic educators and persons interested in Catholic education. It would also be of interest to all committed Catholics as it can be used for meditation and reflection on our relationship with Christ.
I had the pleasure to hear Jonathan speak at NCEA17! Tools and Fuels is the message that all Catholic educators need to hear. The message of reigniting the Spirit to avoid burnout and drawing me back to the essence of my vocation was just what was needed! The book not only draws on passion but also on the teachings of the Catholic Church! Tools and Fuels is a must read!
