The main caveat is that the first resource fails to show the human spiritual soul, which our tradition has seen as so fundamental to a coherent presentation of the Catholic Faith (and the FAITH movement agrees!). The link to the other two resources takes you to the respective beginning of the presentation of the Faith where the spiritual soul plays a prominent place.
All three do well concerning that other oft forgotten foundation of catechesis and apologetics: showing evidence for existence of God, with an openness to modern observations.
The last of our three is just beginning (and might be thought to give a slight nod to the “Intelligent Design” Discovery Institute approach, which is not the FAITH Movement’s one) but there is more to come we believe on this theme.
