For now, we'll be using the highlighted portions of the response answers. They are a bit shorter, but still packed with truth! In case you are wondering if you can still use this book if you are not part of a reformed tradition/church, yes you can. We are not part of a reformed tradition (we atttend an interdenominational Christian church) and the only answer I am changing slightly is to question #27 dealing with election - "Are all people, just as they were lost through Adam, saved through Christ?" Simple enough!
You can also download an app that has the same info for use in quizzing/memorizing, and you can set it to "child mode" which has the shorter answers if desired.
I really love this book and would highly recommend it to anyone!
New City Catechism: How and why did God create us? God created us male and female in his own image to know him, love him, live with him, and glorify him. And it is right that we who were created by God should live to his glory.
Westminister Shorter Catechism: What is the chief end of man? Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.
Actually, quite a few of the New City Catecism answers are very wordy like this, which annoys me because I like simplicity, but it doesn't bother my kids. So I figure, if they're learning it, why not have them learn more? Overall I would buy it again and recommend it to others. (Great when paired with the Getty Kids Hymnal for family worship time before bedtime).
As Kathy Keller says it so beautifully in the intro: "You are laying the kindling and the logs in the fireplace, so that when the spark of the Holy Spirit ignites your child's heart there will be a steady, nature blaze." Praying that over our kids and any other kids (and adults) that learn these truths!
