Lengthy, heavy, theological tomes have their place, but sometimes we need a simple way of understanding the doctrine that is central to our faith. The Westminster Shorter Catechism is designed to do just that. Randall Greenwald takes the question and answer format that it follows and, in short chapters, encourages us to dig for the gold that is to be found in its pages. Read, and be enriched.
Randall Greenwald pastors Covenant Presbyterian Church in Oviedo, Florida, and is a guest lecturer at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando. A graduate of Covenant Theological Seminary, he previously wrote the family worship guide ‘As for My House’. He and his wife Barb have six children and many grandchildren.
How refreshing to find this pastoral entryway to Christianity that uses the Westminster Shorter Catechism to help the interested perceive something more of the breadth and length and height and depth of the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge. I commend this book to all searching for something worth living for.

... brings the deep, rich, biblical and reformed theology of the 17th century Westminster Shorter Catechism to life in the 21st century in a way that is warm, inviting, accessible, conversational and centered in Christ and the gospel of saving and transforming grace.

Do we really need another book on the Westminster Shorter Catechism? It might be tempting to say we don’t, since this classic summary of Bible doctrine already has countless summaries and explanations of it in circulation. But both the title and the table of contents of this particular volume immediately captured my imagination. Here is a fresh and thoughtfully applied exploration of the great truths that were first summarised for a distant generation, revisited for today.
Minister, Bethel Presbyterian Church, Cardiff, Wales
… explains the enduring truths of the Christian Faith in accessible and interesting language that neither talks down to the reader nor fails to connect with practical concerns we all have. Highly recommended.
