Denominational Jan 20, 2007
Just a note to say that this book is a Presbyterian catechism, not a Baptist one. The main difference I see is that of baptism and the Lord's supper being "effective for salvation." That, and it teaches that infants should be baptized. I don't want to start a discussion of the merits of one view over another. I just wanted to point out the differences to those who may be considering buying the book. I wish I would have known this before I bought the book.
Training Hearts Teaching Minds has been a tremendously helpful resource to introduce the Westminster Shorter Catechism to my four-year-old. The questions and answers have been written in modern English (I felt like the original was a bit tough for my daughter's age), and there is a short daily devotional for each Q/A set. By short, I'm talking about 5 minutes a day or so. By the end of the week, my daughter usually has both question and answer memorized. This is so much easier, more edifying, more productive, and more fun than spending 5 minutes a day just drilling on the questions and answers. I don't have any experience using this devotional with older kids, but my sense is that parents of tweens and teens could use the short devotions as a jumping off point for discussion. The author includes related scripture references as well, which also aid in broadening and deepening the discussion. Highly recommended by this mom!
Training Hearts Teaching Minds Feb 28, 2006
This is very well written and insightful book expounding on the shorter catechism. It clearly and accurately lays and reinforces a strong foundation in our belief in Jesus Christ and the truths of God's Word. It is a wonderful tool for teaching children of all ages as well as the parents. I highly recommend it!
Have to get this book if you're looking for a catechism devotional/explanation Sep 8, 2005
This is a most awesome book, we use it every morning to explain the catechism question we're studying each week. It allows us to explore the whole meaning for a week at a time with all the scripture references. This is the best help we've seen yet!
Biblical daily devotions that teach by repetition! Feb 25, 2005
This is a fantastic resource! Based on the shorter catechism's of the Westminster Confession of Faith, a full week's attention is given to each individual catechism question. Each day of the week is a review/reminder of a different point, while all relating to the that weeks catechism question. It really drives home the point by repetition. This resource is easy to use & understand, as the language is not too heavy, or the concepts too broad. Great examples are given for each lesson that will help the entire family, including younger members, to understand and apply the lesson. Scriptures are given throughout each and every lesson. Finally a resource based on the Holy Scriptures!!
