Review by Dr. Steven Hein

Dr. Steven Hein, Director of the Concordia Institute for Christian Studies, and formerly a Professor at Concordia Chicago writes:

I do not know of any other effort that so thoroughly seeks to reform Lutheran catechetical nurture in the way of catechesis – the original way that Luther intended it to be used.  Your attention to detail and thoroughness with each lesson and each chief part is clear, easy to follow and so very integrated in terms of instruction, confession, and worship. This is a wonderful piece of work that I am hoping will be a real blessing for many of our pastors and baptized children. I do understand that for all who would be interested, it will require a pedagogical shift from how we in the LC-MS have looked at catechesis as simply doctrinal instruction rather that nurturing a life long devotional life for the baptized as Luther intended and you have so admirably presented.
