In this new edition, Robert Kolb, the master teacher, has updated and revised this classic guide into the study and teaching of Luther’s “marvelous little book,” the Small Catechism. Designed for educators, pastors, parents, and all who are involved in Christian faith formation, this book is an indispensable resource for understanding and teaching the lifelong adventure of faith.
“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.”
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 towardChristian confession and vocation in the world.”
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.”
