First of all, I apologize if this is not the correct forum, however it would seem that you guys are the most knowledgeable on this topic.
To give you the basics, I live in a country (that I will not name for obvious reasons) where the faith, while not exactly dangerous, is not exactly accepted either. Because of the political and religious situation here the church is simply unable to offer conversion resources - no RCIA process, Catechumen instruction classes, or etc. They can offer the basics - baptism, confirmation - but nothing that would be viewed as overtly “promoting” conversion. Because of this, it will essentially fall on me to teach myself the faith. I can always go the priest for basic Q&As if need be, but it would be dangerous for him to offer anything more. Now, I’m not pressed for time here - another result of the situation is that there’s a pretty long mandatory waiting period before baptism - but the task still seems somewhat daunting. I’ve been mainly teaching myself until now through books (the essentials - The Bible, Catholicism for Dummies, The Catechism, Fulton J. Sheen, Scott Hahn, etc.) as well as through online resources and good old internet forums. But now that I’ve got the basics down, I’m wondering where to go from here, and have really no idea where to start. I was wondering what books or resources you guys would recommend for someone in the Catechumen process who’s interested in gaining a more advanced as well as some supplementary basic knowledge about the faith.
Thank you and God Bless!
