I have been searching for a resource to assist in teaching my children (and studying myself) the Shorter Chatechism. Our family has been using this resource for the first week and so far I am very impressed. It is in language that is accessible for my 7-year old, and yet has meaning that is deep enough to keep my wife and me both interested. After the first week when we took Sunday off, my younger daughter expressed disappointment that we didn't read from it. THAT is a blessing!
This is what I've been searching for!
Starr Meade has written a superb tool that is truly effective. Using questions from the Westminster Shorter Catechism she provides six-days' worth of brief comment and scriptural cross references for each question. By the end of the week the children have thoroughly learned the question and answer and understand from scripture other related principles. I looked awhile before I found this type of tool. I recommend it to anyone who is looking for an effective way of teaching doctrine to their youngsters.
