Catechism

A Spirit-Filled Catechism is a work in progress, a labor of love and a (hopefully) reverent revision of the Heidelberg Catechism. Three major principles have guided the revision:

  1. Respect for the original intent and spirit of the Heidelberg Catechism, a veritable institution of the Reformation; while at the same time
  2. Correcting some of its Calvinistic errors and moderating its polemics; and
  3. Updating and expanding some areas with more contemporary concerns.

After a couple “test runs” in different teaching environments, the Catechism is presently being prepared for publication. When complete, it will include a devotion for each Day, and technical notes regarding the revision decisions will be made available.

Below are links to mobile-friendly presentations of the lesson for each Lord’s Day (i.e., Sunday) in the Catechism’s yearly cycle as well as the important source documents used in the Catechism.

Update 1: The Catechism was completed on September 26, 2018, and all days have now been uploaded.
