Have you ever found understanding the Bible a bit like exploring America on foot – interesting, but overwhelming and slow-going?
If So, Check Out This Handy Road Map: The Heidelberg Catechism.
Published in 1563, the Heidelberg Catechism is largely a commentary on three things: the Apostles’ Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer.
Like a road map, the Catechism can help show you the main attractions in the Bible and lead you to the best, most important truths of our faith. Christians have been using it for centuries – besides the Bible, John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, and Thomas a Kempis’s Imitation of Christ, the Heidelberg Catechism is the most widely circulated book in the world.
As DeYoung so aptly puts it, “The only thing more difficult than finding the truth is not losing it.” Let The Good News We Almost Forgot take you back to the good news – the gospel – in all its glory.
“A crash course in life-changing biblical teaching, a wake-up call to the slumbering, a blood transfusion for the spiritually anemic, a solid meal for the mature – and much more: conversational, cutting where needed, gospel-filled-and clear.” – Sinclair B. Ferguson, senior minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina
“ I’m sure this will be the best book on the Heidelberg Catechism I’ve ever read. I know it will be the first.” – C. J. Mahaney, president, Sovereign Grace Ministries
