Catechisms have been used by the Christian church for centuries to teach people the truths of the Gospel and foundational biblical doctrine. Most catechisms are designed for group recitation so that believers can, in community, affirm their faith and counteract errors and false beliefs that are prevalent in the culture.
The New City Catechism is a modern-language collection of 52 questions and answers used to teach, correct, and profess the beliefs of Christianity either in a group or individual setting. The New City Catechism is adopted from Calvin's Geneva Catechism, the Westminster Shorter and Longer Catechisms, and the Heidelberg Catechism.
Each question provides an answer for adults and a simplified answer for children, making The New City Catechism a great resource to lead your family through over the span of one year.
The New City Catechism is made available through The Gospel Coalition and Crossway Publishing and has been printed in a family-friendly, easy-to-use desktop format designed to be used throughout the year.
