4 1/2 stars. I'd give it 5 stars except my preconceived idea of what I would learn from this was slightly different. I expected some practical knowledge of what *I* can and should do to catechize my own children at home. It only peripherally addressed this point.

The excellence of this book lies in another direction: it's comprehensive overview of several things. One, what is catechism? Two, the biblical reason/support for catechisms (new to me). Three, the historical reasons/support for catechis

Great book for anyone with questions on catechizing your children or curious what catechism is. A highly recommended resource for all Christian parents.

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.

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.

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.

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.
