The Heidelberg Catechism   2 comments

One of the books I am reading right now is called “The Good News We Almost Forgot – Rediscovering the Gospel in a 16th Century Catechism” by Kevin L. DeYoung.  What a great book!  Here’s a description:

In The Good News We Almost Forgot Kevin DeYoung explores the Heidelberg Catechism and writes 52 brief chapters on what it has shown him. The Heidelberg is largely a commentary on the Apostle’s Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord’s Prayer and the book deals with man’s guilt, God’s grace, and believers’ gratitude. The result is a clear-headed, warm-hearted exploration of the faith, simple enough for young believers and deep enough for mature believers. As DeYoung writes, “The gospel summarized in the Heidelberg Catechism is glorious, it’s Christ gracious, it’s comfort rich, it’s Spirit strong, it’s God Sovereign, and it’s truth timeless.” Come and see how your soul can be warmed by the elegantly and logically laid out doctrine that matters most: we are great sinners and Christ is a greater Savior!

  1. Well hello there! This really sounds like a great book but I bet you have it on kindle so I’ll have to buy it for myself instead of borrowing it! :0)
    Beautiful photos and a wonderful reminder to carry with us every day!

  2. I have loved this since you first posted it. I’m leading a Book Club in church and we’re discussing “What Has Christianity Ever Done For Us….” It’s a history of Christianity full of marvelous things God has worked through the ages and through his peoples. I’d like to copy your picture as a gift, as a meditation tool and remembrance.
    Thank you for this blessing.
