Overview

Beauty and Catechesis is an edition of the Small Catechism, fully illustrated with sacred classical art. It is meant for family catechesis and devotional use, as Luther intended, and for use by the pastors of the church to properly instruct our little ones in the true faith.

In this edition of the Small Catechism, Rev. Gaven Mize desires to help the young and old alike retain the beauty of the Catechism, not only through Luther’s fantastic words, but also through art, devotion, and prayer; likewise presented is the great litany, and a string of collect prayers. Thus this book gives the reader an opportunity to see the words of Luther in a new way that weaves in history and art from across the ages, and pertinent social economics, while tying it all together with careful and faithful devotions that highlight the wonder and wealth of Luther’s work.
