The New City Catechism: 52 Questions and Answers for Our Hearts and Minds (Gospel Coalition)
Gospel Coalition; Redeemer Presbyterian
“Catechisms have proved to be some of the greatest tools the church can employ for teaching and propagating the Christian faith. Yet, despite its rich tradition and history of fruitfulness, catechesis has become an all-too-neglected practice today. The New City Catechism seeks to revive this practice and add to its long history. In these pages, students of Christ will find not only The New City Catechism, but also rich devotions for their souls to feed upon. These commentaries (written by gifted preachers of today and those of previous ages), heart-felt prayers, and the theological precision of The New City Catechism will benefit all saints seeking to grow in their love and knowledge of God and his truth.”See All

Throughout the history of the church, Christians have used catechisms—collections of questions and answers designed for memorization and recitation--to teach others the core doctrines of the faith. The New City Catechism is a modernday resource aimed at reintroducing this ancient method of teaching to Christians today.
This short book lays out 52 questions and answers related to God, human nature, sin, Christ, the Holy Spirit, and more. Whether used devotionally, recited orally, or memorized over the course of a year, families, churches, small groups, and Christian schools will treasure this as a valuable tool for teaching the core doctrines of the Christian faith to children and adults alike.
