I enjoyed this book because of its simplicity and common sense approach to a skill that must be redeveloped in this generation. Our churches are not teaching their children well. In our world (Reformed) we still catechize our children, but in the evangelical world I came from, it was non-existent. It has been the burden of my heart for many years that my own children were not catechized because I knew nothing about its benefits when they were small.

A very practical book about the who, what, why, where, and when's of all things catechetical teaching and learning. Great book.
A quick, engaging, great read. Van Dyken did a great job explaining the history and importance of catechizing our children, and the impact it will have not only them but the church as well. Would definitely recommend to others and might re-read. This has made me more serious about catechizing our children and making it more of a priority.

I really enjoyed this book. It is primarily about the history of catechism and the practical implementation of a catechesis in family life and the life of a church. Pastor Van Dyken is warm and pastoral in his approach, which makes the book a good read for those who may not like the idea of catechizing.

LOVED THIS! This was well laid out, inspiring, and full of useful information about the history, whys, and hows of catechizing your children. We don't attend a church that promotes catechism, but we are going to catechise our kids at home.
It's one thing to know the catechism is a valuable thing. It's an entirely different thing to know why it is valuable.
Definitely gave me a better understanding of how catechesis actually works.

Thanks for the lend, Jacob!
Good, concise, practical primer on implementing catechism classes in the church.
