Resources to Help Better Understand the Baptist Catechism

Church, I wanted to share with you three resources that I have found useful in my studying of the Baptist Catechism. While two of the three resources are based on the Westminster Shorter Catechism, you will see that the WSC and Baptist Catechism are very similar. A majority of the differences are in regards to the teaching on Baptism and the numbering of the catechism questions (the sequence of the doctrinal standards are the same). I have provided a link to for you to view in more detail. If you would like to review a physical copy of one of these resources please see me as I will have them with me on Sundays.

Training Hearts, Teaching Minds Family Devotions Based on the Shorter Catechism by Starr Meade

This devotional book provides material and scripture passages to read and discuss from Monday through Saturday. It is a quick and easy read with practical insight and application perfect to incorporate into your family worship time.

The Westminster Shorter Catechism: For Study Classes by G. I. Williamson

This resource is a more in depth treatment of the catechism.  On average, four to six pages are dedicated to the explanation of individual or group of doctrinal standards. The author often includes simple illustrations to help articulate the concepts being taught, provides an abundance of scripture references, and discussion questions at the end of each section.

A Scriptural Exposition of the Baptist Catechism by Benjamin Beddome

Benjamin Beddome, a minister who lived from 1717-1795 wrote, A Scriptural Exposition of the Baptist Catechism which explains the Baptist Catechism by the way of further asking questions and providing the answers to those questions by directly quoting scripture.
