Bob Kolb continues to demonstrate his teaching heart in this work. He is a teacher's teacher. Teachers and learners will be affirmed, challenged, and inspired. --Vernon Gundermann Pastor Emeritus, Concordia Lutheran Church (Kirkwood, Missouri)
Kolb has provided pastors and laity alike with a robust user's guide to the Small Catechism. Drawing on his rich understanding of Luther's theology, Kolb has produced a commentary of the Small Catechism that is reflective of the proper distinction of law and Gospel and geared toward Christian confession and vocation in the world. --John Pless Concordia Theological Seminary (Ft. Wayne, Indiana)
From beginning to end readers will find themselves in the hands of an able guide to this jewel of the Lutheran confessions. Kolb translates his own love for the Small Catechism and a lifetime of experience with it into clear, provocative prose. --Timothy Wengert Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia
