Excerpt from An Explicatory Catechism: Or an Explanation of the Assembly's Shorter Catechism

That popish axiom is long since exploded; that ignorance is the mother of devotion.

The world now doth see, that without knowledge the mind is not good. And look as no knowledge is so necessary, as that of the grounds and principles of the Christian religion, so no way is so apt to convey it to men, as that which is called catechistical. More knowledge is ordinarily diffused, especially among the ignorant, and younger sort, by one hour's catechistical exercise, than by many hours discourses. This way helps the understanding, whilst it provokes the attention: many elaborate sermons being lost through inadvertency of the hearers. Thus not only ignorance is cured, but error also is prevented: Too many being disguised, because they were not at first well grounded in the principles of the doctrine of Christ. For such reasons as these, we highly approve the labours of this reverend Brother, his explanation of the Assembly's Shorter Catechism. And having to our great satisfaction perused it ourselves in whole or in part, do readily recommend it to others: For he composed it at first for his own particular congregation, yet we judge it must be greatly useful to all Christians in general, especially to private families.
