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.
… 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.
Professor of Theology, Tyndale University, Toronto, Ontario
Randy has a great gift for finding illustrations, real parallels between the deep things of redemption and our present experience. This is the kind of teaching that will move modern people to study the Catechism, and the Scriptures, for themselves.

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.

This book is a needed addition to family and church libraries, to every pastor’s study, and to seminary curricula. I will use it as a help in my personal devotions as well as in my teaching ministry. I recommend it highly!
