Time for the catechism

On my recent visit to the United States to speak at The Gospel Coalition National Conference, I was really delighted to see a copy of The New City Catechism, which has just been published by Crossway. The catechism, which has only been available in app and online form until now, contains 52 questions and answers developed from the Reformation catechisms. It’s intended for use at home, in small groups and churches.

People often get confused by what a catechism is. They perhaps confuse it with Roman Catholicism, and don’t realise it’s part of an historic, biblical Christian faith. Throughout history, and particularly at times when we’ve seen theological, doctrinal and biblical illiteracy, the catechism has been a great servant of the church.

I believe we now we need to consider recommitting to the process of catechising both children and adults, and The New City Catechism looks like a great resource to enable us to do just that. Find it on Amazon and other online stores.

Please see my video above, which was produced by The Gospel Coalition.
