Communicating the faith to children is one of the great responsibilities of Christian parents. In Catechizing Our Children, Terry Johnson, a father as well as a pastor, shows how the Shorter Catechism can be of great help to parents facing this vital task.
Many generations of Christian parents have found the Westminster Shorter Catechism to be one of the most effective ways of raising their children in the ‘discipline and instruction of the Lord’ (Eph. 6:4); for not only does it provide a clear explanation of the gospel, but it is still one of the best introductions to the most important doctrines of the Christian faith.
Concise, brief, informative, and above all practical, Catechizing Our Children, will be a great help and a most useful guide to parents and grandparents, pastors and Sunday-school teachers.

Terry Johnson is the senior minister of the Independent Presbyterian Church in Savannah, Georgia.
He was born and raised in the Los Angeles area. His home church was Baptist, his sport was baseball, and his favorite class was history. As an undergraduate at the University of Southern California, he continued to play baseball and study history. But he also began to grow spiritually and over time sense a call to the gospel ministry. This led to two years at Trinity College, Bristol, England (an Anglican theological college), two years at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary, and ordination in the Presbyterian Church in America. After 5 years in Coral Gables, Florida as an assistant minister, Terry married the former Emily Billings, and within 6 months they moved to Savannah to take up the call of the Independent Presbyterian Church, which they have served since 1987. Terry is the author/compiler of the Trinity Psalter and Leading in Worship, and author of The Case for Traditional Protestantism (published by the Trust), Reformed Worship, and the trilogy, When Grace Comes Home, When Grace Transforms, and When Grace Comes Alive. He and Emily have five children.
