About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
This has really shown me the benefit of teaching the catechism. Teaching it prepares our young ones to make sense of this world. I highly recommend this book.
So writes Starr Meade in his book Training Hearts Teaching Minds: Family Devotions Based on the Shorter Catechism, a book that provides short devotions on the questions and answers contained in the Shorter Catechism. There are six devotions (Monday thru Saturday) along with highlighted scripture references for each of the 107 catechism questions and answers (642 devotions in all), making the book an excellent resource for `dinnertime' devotions with your children.
I am considering purchasing:
With this book, we should all be extremely grateful to Starr Meade for this very helpful devotional. The author covers each question from the Westminster Shorter Catechism over six lessons. This enables families to take an entire week to reflect and think about how each question is drawn for the Scriptures and how they might apply to our lives and Christians.
As a pastor, I am always looking for material that can encourage families in their devotions. This is a welcome volume. My only quibbles are that each lesson is very short and I would like to have see more Scripture used for each study. But these last comments shouldn't dissuade anyone from buying this book.
