Publisher's Description

Does your child know the key biblical teachings about God the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit? What about salvation, Scripture, and the sacraments? Can he or she recite the Ten Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer?

Catechisms were once used as instructional guides to help children memorize basic Christian doctrines. In them, children had a concise handbook of important truths they could call upon at any time in confidence. Today, however, the church focuses on teaching Bible stories, which are often used to moralize children and equip them to win Bible trivia contests!

Recognizing this deficit, Starr Meade has provided Christian parents and churches with a tool for imparting doctrinal instruction to their children. Training Hearts, Teaching Minds guides families through the questions and answers in The Westminster Shorter Catechism in Modern English. Each question and answer of the catechism has six days’ worth of devotional readings for families to share together. The readings are simply written, with elementary and junior–high children in mind. They are also brief, out of consideration for children's short attention spans and for the busy schedules of contemporary families. Teaching the Shorter Catechism has never been easier!

Teaching the Shorter Catechism has never been easier. This book of daily readings...

  • Aids memorization by devoting six days per question.
  • Explains the catechism in simple language.
  • Provides six different meditations on the main points of each question.
  • Includes key Scripture readings.
  • Takes just a few minutes each day, allowing time for discussion and review.
  • Is useful in the home, church, or classroom.
