Product Description

When Elector Frederick III commissioned the production of a new catechism for his palatine realm, he could not have imagined the enduring effect it would have on future generations of Christians. In his 1563 Preface, Frederick explains the purpose for compiling the catechism"

"This was done so that in the future not only will young people be instructed in the Christian doctrine in a godly manner and admonished in unanimity, but also so that pastors and schoolteachers themselves have a reliable model and a solid standard."

The essays gathered here in A Faith Worth teaching: The Heidelberg Catechism's Enduring Heritage examine closely the enduring message of this "reliable model" and "solid standard" in celebration of its 450th anniversary.

Part 1 considers the history and background of the Heidelberg Catechism. 'Part 2' argues for the ongoing relevance of the Catechism in the contemporary world, while 'part 3' elaborates on its doctrinal expression and 'part 4' examines its ongoing usefulness as a catechetical tool.

Publisher's Description

For 450 years, churches throughout the world have been using the Heidelberg Catechism (1563) to instruct God's people in foundational Christian doctrine. When Elector Frederick III (1515 1576) commissioned the preparation of a manual for instructing the youth and guiding the pastors and teachers of his domain, he could not have imagined the profound effect it would have on future generations of Christians. The most widely used, most influential Reformation catechism, the Heidelberger shines forth the blessed truths of the gospel in 129 questions and answers, beginning with the memorable, ever-enduring subject of our only comfort in life and in death. In A Faith Worth Teaching, edited by Jon Payne and Sebastian Heck, an array of faithful pastor-scholars celebrate the Heidelberg Catechism on its 450th anniversary with a collection of essays on its dynamic history, rich theology, and fruit-bearing practice that will be an encouragement to pastors and laypersons alike.
