Editorial Reviews


"This volume stands as a significant contribution to the scholarly appraisal of the Heidelberg Catechism in its broader ecclesiastical and cultural context. As introduction, overview, resource, and stimulus to further investigations of the transmission of Christian teaching to the public, specifically in the case of the Heidelberg Catechism but more generally in the Western catechetical tradition, this volume assumes an important place as a tool for research and instruction." --Robert Kolb, Renaissance Quarterly, volume 66, issue 4

"Power of Faith is a magnificently produced volume of scholarly papers along with over 700 pictures to accompany exhibitions on the Heidelberg Catechism in Heidelberg, Germany and Apeldoorn, The Netherlands. ... This volume enables us to enter that past time and understand the power this catechism had and continues to have as a basic confessional statement of Reformed Christians. The magnificent pictures make this book a real treasure. ... [It's] is perfect as an addition to church library, a gift for a pastor, and for gaining a panoramic view of the catechism." --Donald McKim, Presbyterian Outlook

Very interesting for anyone who likes history, especially Europe in the Reformation. Portraits of the time and of the main characters make it come alive. Should be good for lay and clergy alike.
