The Catechism is Strategic — New Website: Lutheran Catechism, posted at on January 7, 2016 by T. R. Halvorson

A new website, Lutheran Catechism, promoting the use of Luther’s catechisms went live January 4, 2016. As a new site, it is still small, but here is what it is developing:

Blog. A blog with posts of quotations, links to articles, pointers to resources, bulletin inserts, free digitized books, etc.

Reading Plans. Links to a variety of reading plans for personal and family settings. At present is has published one simple weekly plan, and soon will publish a yearly plan coordinated with the Church Year contributed by a reader. Readers are invited to submit plans to be shared by the site.

Pastoral Catechesis. A listing of teaching materials developed by or for pastors to teach the catechism. As an example, the site points to Catechesis for Life: Catechism (2014), a 42-part series on Luther’s Small Catechism, each featuring a mini study by Pastor John Wollenburg Sias and excerpts from Luther’s Large Catechism. Readers are invited to let the site’s editor know about materials of this type so they can be promoted in the list.

Bibliography. A bibliography of works about Luther’s catechisms, parental responsibility, home catechization, pastoral catechesis, and related topics.

Document Library. A collection of articles and other documents hosted on the site itself to make getting a copy convenient.

Links. A list of links to online and media resources such as the online Book of Concord, Small Catechism, Large Catechism, CPH Online Luther’s Small Catechism, CPH Luther’s Small Catechism mobile app in iTunes and Google Play, Lessons from Luther (audio of Small Catechism), LibriVox audio of Small Catechism, Sing the Faith: The Small Catechism Set to Music (audio CD, Mp3s, and songbook), and the Brothers of John the Steadfast videos on the Small Catechism.
