In the Preface to the first part of this collection Pastor Thomson provided a brief background on the history of the Shorter Catechism, and pointed out its value for theology, catechizing, and practice. He continues exhorting readers on these values in the remaining sections of the Catechism. As he pointed out then, and as we repeat now, "Presbyterians armed, fed, and taught by the Catechism are 'ready to give an answer for our hope.' That is why I wrote, preached, and now publish these studies."
It is hoped that readers will be nourished by these sermons, as we who have heard them preached can attest to how they have already benefited us. The gospel message is for all who seek to know God and to worship Him in spirit and in truth. The Bread of Life is found in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. As Peter said to Jesus in John 6:68-9, "Lord, to whom should we go? You have the words of eternal life. Also we have come to believe and know that You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."
