I wish I was made to memorize this as a child

These are the clearest answers to the most basic questions of our faith that every Christian should know, and yet so many sadly still remain ignorant of. The first two introductory essays are very convicting in regard to the importance Catechisms and add much to overall message of this audio book.

Highly Recommend

Sinclair Ferguson is such a treasure to the body of Christ.....His church. His rich Scottish brogue lends itself well to the reading of the 107 questions and answers of the Westminster Shorter Catechism.

Beautiful

I did not grow up in the Reform tradition. Only in recent years have I been exposed to and have embraced the doctrines of Grace. Having this audio version of the book will surely enhance my bible reading and understanding of the beautiful doctrines found in the Scriptures. Sola Scripture!
