Comforting Hearts, Teaching Minds
Family Devotions Based on the Heidelberg Catechism
Q. How do you have meaningful family devotions that memorably cover the scope of Christian belief?
A. Traditionally, by using a catechism!
One of the most acclaimed teaching tools in church history is the beloved catechism known as The Heidelberg Catechism. Now, with Starr Meade’s accompanying book, teaching its comforts to children has never been easier. This book of daily readings:
- provides a year—or more—of family devotions
- aids study by devoting six to twelve days to the questions of each Lord’s Day section
- explains the catechism in simple language
- provides six to twelve meditations on the main points of each section
- takes just a few minutes each day, allowing time for discussion and review
- is useful in the home, church, or classroom
“I am always eager for new resources on the Heidelberg Catechism. I hope Starr Meade’s latest contribution reaches a wide audience, leading more and more families to get acquainted with Heidelberg and to think to themselves, Where has this been all my life?!”
-— Kevin DeYoung, Senior Pastor, University Reformed Church, East Lansing, Michigan
