“I am Joy:Fully Lutheran! And you should be too.”

Luther’s Small Catechism is through and through a remedy for the troubled conscience. It is full of  consolation and a tremendous cause for joy as it lays out in concrete ways and with absolute certainty the Gospel of Christ’s free forgiveness for you.

This devotional treatment of the Six Chief Parts of the Small Catechism centers on joy, specifically identifying what it means to be fully Lutheran, and joyfully so—Joy:fully Lutheran.

Good Model

This book is a good, helpful model for a rich, devotional life. It focuses on God's word in the beauty of His law and His gospel. The devotion end prayer focusing on the instructions we have received, thanksgiving, and confession.

Joyfully Lutheran

I have thoroughly loved this book. I've been looking for a book like this, which I describe as the Small Catechism in devotional form. The only thing I'd like to see is a version of this book that is simplified for use with younger children.

Why be Lutheran?

Luther's Small Catechism is literally at the heart of the Reformation that bears his name. Using the catholic texts of the church: Decalog, Creed, Lord's Prayer, and the instituting words of Baptism, Absolution, and the Lord's Supper, Luther confesses Christ Jesus as Lord. The Catechism is the handbook that tutors Christians in the art of faith so that their joy may be full in Christ is for them in every respect. President Harrison has provided a robust guide into how Luther intended the Catechism to be used for instruction, confession, prayer, and vocation in the world. This little book should be widely circulated. It would be a great "give away" piece for evangelism calls even as it will also serve seasoned Lutherans.
