Reviews - What do customers think about The Westminster Shorter Catechism: For Study Classes?
A defense of the catechism May 20, 2007
If you are looking for illustrations of what the catechism means and how it condenses spiritual truth, this book will help you. If you are looking for explanations or comments on the catechism and its genesis or its order of questions, it won't help you. It expands on the catechism's teachings and uses it to explain why certain beliefs are right or wrong. It doesn't question the catechism or explain how it flows out of Scripture, which for someone not used to catechisms can be quite frustrating. Also, if you dislike TULIP, better steer clear.
best treatment of the Shorter Catechism May 7, 2007
G.I. Williamson has done a great service to all who are interested in understanding the teachings of the Bible. The Westminster Shorter Catechism is an excellent summary of the Bible's teachings in question and answer form, and Williamson's study guide examines each question and answer in a manner that even youngsters can understand.
A Very Interesting Christian Study Guide Apr 2, 2007
The Westminster Shorter Catechism is a classic summary of Christian doctrine. This summary becomes more useful if one really thinks about and understands the matters being presented. Author G.I. Williamson ably assists the reader in this endeavor. The author's writing style is straightforward and succinct, with a touch of humor. Charts, diagrams, illustrations and anecdotes are all utilized. We have participated in classes which used this book, and have also used it at home with our older children. I highly recommend this book.
