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.
As a professional writer and editor, I’ve been consistently impressed by the quality of Randy’s writing; I’m also struck by his deep theological knowledge, and how it’s paired with genuine pastoral concern for those around him. This is a project that requires writing chops, theological acumen and a pastor’s heart. Randy’s got them all.

Finally a book of theology and the Reformed faith that won’t bore the reader to death. This is a book that will be such an incredible tool for small study groups, leadership training and laypeople who are often looking for an understandable and useful guide to the Christian faith.

Catechisms are an ancient and time–tested method that Christians have employed to pass on the core of what they believe about God and what He requires believers to do. Through a simple question–and–answer approach, young and old have been taught biblical truth about our great God and His ways. Randall Greenwald’s new discussion of the Westminster Shorter Catechism, one of the most treasured of these catechisms, is indeed a welcome tool for exploring the riches of this particular catechism and, even better, for growing in the grace of the Lord Jesus.
