The Catechism Explained
An Exhaustive Exposition of the Christian Religion with Special Reference to the Present State of Society and the Spirit of the Age. A Practical Manual for the Use of the Preacher, the Catechist, the Teacher, and the Family. This large Catechism is divided into three parts: The first part treats of faith, the second of morals, the third of the means of grace. In the first part Our Lord appears in His character of Teacher; in the second in His character of King; and in the third in His character of High Priest. This Catechism is in fact nothing more nor less than an abstract of Our Lord’s teaching, and may be called a guide book for the Christian on the road to heaven. This Catechism aims at cultivating, to an equal extent, all the three powers of the soul: the understanding, the affections and the will. It is an amazing book and should be in every home.
