Written by Martin Luther in 1529 in question and answer format, the Small Catechism explores Six Chief Parts of Christian Doctrine: The Ten Commandments, the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, Confession, and the Sacrament of the Altar.
Also included are daily prayers, a table of duties for Christians in their various callings in life, and a guide for Christians to use as they prepare to receive Holy Communion. Luther intended the catechism to be a prayer book for individuals and families and a powerful tool for the Christian life because it provides a brief, clear summary of God's Word on the essentials of the Christian faith.
This beautiful gift edition of Luther's Small Catechism with Explanation features presentation page, ribbon bookmark, symbolic color artwork and gold-edged pages. Cover features Luther's Rose. Perfect gift for any student of the catechism.
