Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Small Catechism is the abridged version of Luther's Large Catechism. Written in the traditional catechism form of a query followed by an answer, these brief Q and As explain the backbone of Lutheran theology. The question asked for each section of the Ten Commandments, Apostle's Creed, and Lord's prayer is "What does this mean?" while the sections on the sacraments include questions like "What does baptism give?" and "How can physical eating and drinking do such great things?" The book is a quick and helpful guide to common practices in the Lutheran church, and is best used as reference or for memorization purposes. Those looking for more complete explanations of Lutheran theology should refer to Luther's Large Catechism.
