Happy Birthday, Heidelberg Catechism

Here are 5 reasons  to read the catechism this year.
Moody Publishers, publisher of Kevin DeYoung’s The Good News We Almost Forgot: Rediscovering the Gospel in a 16th Century Catechism , has made available Jerry Bridge’s foreword along with the introduction and first chapter by Kevin. You can download it here  for free.
If you need some motivation that this is worth your time, here is some encouragement from Sinclair Ferguson:
I cannot over exaggerate how good this book is. Here is a crash course in life-changing biblical teaching, a wake-up call to the slumbering, a blood transfusion for the spiritually anemic, a solid meal for the mature—and much more: conversational, cutting where needed, gospel-filled, and clear.
The Good News We Almost Forgot has it all: honesty, truth, grace, plain-speaking, encouragement, wisdom, and hope. It may not make you wish you were Dutch—but it should certainly make you feel that being a Christian is the greatest thing in the world, today or any day!
