Luther's Catechism - NIV

Luther's Catechism - NIV

Product Review (submitted on August 10, 2018):

At first I was not inclined to use this book because it departed from the minimal layout of the catechism I grew up using (exposition by David Kuske). However, the more I use it the more I appreciate the layout and content. After about a year of use I have found it to be a treasured resource.

It does not seem as easy to read as the Kuske catechism, but it has many added advantages. Navigation is improved with color-coded edges for quick reference. The smaller size makes it an easy-to-grab book to carry with you. If you don't struggle with reading standard font sizes this is a good trade-off. The compact size is important for those who wish to use it for memory work or for daily personal devotion.

The "Connections" section is an excellent addition and useful for incorporating Scripture readings and hymns for personal, classroom, or family discussion.

The NIV and ESV options offer good translation choices. I hope this will also be made available in the future EHV.

Thank you to those involved in this important project. Well done putting together many useful features with excellent content!
