Reviews - What do customers think about CSRT Calvin'S First Catechism?

For Every Family  Feb 6, 2008
Catechism is not a popular word today. Many think of straight rows of chairs and children reciting lines and words and Bible passages. But John Calvin brought the catechism alive. Calvin is more than just "five points," no, Calvin made the Bible come alive for the people who heard him teach. He hosted travelers, guests, and his own family and church in his home. Our family has used several bits and pieces of other catechism, but this one volume brings out the best. It is not just about teaching our family or our church, it is also about living it. Calvin's catechism helps people to see, understand, grasp, relate, and then live the catechism in their families, in the streets, and in the work place. It presents a truly Reformed Faith view of the Scriptures, so the reader should understand that from the beginning, but it is solid and a great tool. It should be used side-by-side with the Westminster Catechism or the Westminster Confession of Faith.
