The Anglican Church in North America has a new catechism.


To Be a Christian: An Anglican Catechism

 


The Catechism was unanimously approved for trial use by the College of Bishops on January 8th, 2014. Over the next two years the Task Force will be receiving feedback and passing it on to the College of Bishops to further refine this resource. You can make a recommendation to the Task Force by sending an email to:catechesistaskforce@anglicanchurch.net

This catechism (a text used for instruction of Christian disciples) is designed as a resource manual for the renewal of Anglican catechetical practice. It presents the essential building blocks of classic catechetical instruction: the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Ten Commandments (the Decalogue). To these is added an initial section especially intended for those with no prior knowledge of the Gospel. Each section is presented in the question-and-answer form that became standard in the sixteenth-century because of its proven effectiveness. Each section is also set out with its practical implications, together with biblical references.

You can download free PDF copies here .... http://anglicanchurch.net/?/main/catechism

And you can pre order a nice leather edition pictured above from amazon ... http://www.amazon.com/To-Be-Christian-Anglican-Catechism/dp/0986044121/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1400912315&sr=8-1&keywords=Acna+Anglican

This is an excellent resource for teaching the faith and I highly recommend it!

Blessings and love
