Experience the Small Catechism in a New Way.

Announcing By Heart: Conversations with Martin Luther's Small Catechism, a new 7-session course to encourage engagement with the Small Catechism. This in-depth exploration of the Small Catechism is designed to be used in group discussion and as a stand-alone book for personal enrichment. This resource will facilitate powerful discussions throughout your entire congregation as we continue to explore Luther's Small Catechism during the year of the observation of the 500th anniversary of the reformation and beyond. 

This rich guide is complete with annotations and commentary on the text of the Small Catechism. Written to generate meaningful conversations about the biblical and historical context of the Small Catechism, its link to the church's faith, and its connections to Luther's life and our lives together today.

Contributors include: Guy Erwin, Mary Jane Haemig, Ken Sundet Jones, Martin J. Lohrmann, Derek R. Nelson, Kirsi I. Stjerna, Timothy J. Wengert, and Hans Wiersma

In addition to the central book the resource family will include a Leader’s Guide and a DVD to facilitate congregational and group use to encourage deeper engagement with the Small Catechism congregation-wide.
