Luther's Small Catechism






The catechism is an essential part of any Christian’s library. Brief, clear summaries of God’s Word allow individuals and families alike to use the Small Catechism as a powerful tool and prayer book. Though the catechism was written by Martin Luther in 1529, its question and answer format provides Christians with a timeless guide book that is easy to use and applicable to all the various callings we have in life.

The Small Catechism explores the Six Chief Parts of Christian Doctrine: the Ten Commandments, the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, Confession, and the Sacrament of the Altar. It also includes daily prayers, a table of duties for Christians, and a guide for Christians to use as they prepare to receive Holy Communion.

This is sometimes referred to as the Enchiridion.

An explanation section has regularly accompanied editions of Luther’s Small Catechism since the early days of Lutheranism. It is designed to help individuals understand and apply the catechism to their lives. Luther’s Small Catechism with Explanation is available for purchase from Concordia Publishing House in several different forms.
