Book Description

In the opinion of B.B. Warfield, the Westminster divines left to posterity not only ‘the most thoroughly thought out statement ever penned of the elements of evangelical religion’ but also one which breathes ‘the finest fragrance of spiritual religion’. Their most influential work, ‘The Shorter Catechism’, was intended as a teaching basis for an introduction to the Christian Faith. No London pastor made more effective use of it than Thomas Vincent (1634-1678) and when his ‘explanation’ was first published in 1674, John Owen, Thomas Watson along with 38 other signatories to the Preface, declared their belief that it would ‘be greatly useful to all Christians in general’.

    We are using this in family worship. It explains the basic teachings of Christianity by expanding the questions of the Shorter Catechism using further questions to break down the teaching and proving it all by quoting texts from the Bible (not just references), so you read lots of the fundamental verses of Scripture. A whole host of the great Puritans recommended this book such as John Owen, Thomas Watson, Thomas Manton, Thomas Brooks and Edmund Calamy
