New City Catechism
Posted by Clare

When I was a kid, I was force-marched to church every Wednesday evening for years and made to memorize the Heidelberg Catechism. It’s actually an amazing document, but to a kid of 12, I’d rather have been poked in the eye with a sharp stick. It was long and boring and taught by a godly, but humorless and unimaginative elder.

Then this week a good friend of mine, Meg Cusack, told me about a wonderful new, shortened and modern version of the catechism. It’s called the New City Catechism. It was written by Tim Keller and others, in cooperation with the Gospel Coalition. (I’ll have a link at the end of this blog.)

Tim, where were you when I needed you?

Here’s how this catechism works and why it’s important to you; there are 52 short questions and answers, one for every week of the year. (Very “doable” for memorization.)They cover all the most important teachings of Reformed Theology. In addition, each Q & A has a wonderful teaching that clearly explains why we believe what’s being taught. It’s wonderful!

This is an amazing tool for every protestant parent to easily teach their children and (themselves) a very simplified systematic theology. Go to to find out more for yourself.
