The Good news we almost forgot: rediscovering the gospel in a 16th Century catechism sounds unbelievably boring. But it is not. In fact, I have been overly excited for the last 3 months waiting for this book to arrive. And here it is!
I love the heidelberg Cateechism and I really enjoy the writings/ blogs of Kevin DeYoung. This book is Kevin DeYoung going through the Catechism…which is a joy for me. This Catechism is really warm, encouraging, pastoral and theologically sound. I have encouraged you to read it before. The great thing now is that you can buy this book, which contains the Catechism and DeYoungs running commentary.
I really wanted to read this book this week. Just sit down with a good coffee and plough through. But after reading the introduction (which is amazing) and the Lords Day 1, I have decided to spend a year reading it. The catechism is designed to be read every Lord’s Day for a year…so that is what I will do.
I was just so excited I had to tell you!
So, why don’t you do the same?
Why don’t you buy a copy, set 15 minutes of your Sunday to one side, and be blessed for the next 52 Sundays?
Go on…you know you should!
But, just in case you don’t, I will quote it every week and give you my thoughts.
