The Westminster Shorter Catechism is among the most rich and concise summaries of Christian beliefs ever penned. Written and compiled for the Westminster Assembly in 1647 and finalized in 1648, the Shorter Catechism was originally conceived as a method of instructing children and new converts in the Christian faith. The catechism adopts the common method of question and answer, suitable for memorization and easy recall. It has now become an essential guide for all levels of learning. For those who wish to gain a clearer understanding of Christian doctrine, you are sure to be enriched and edified as you listen to this beloved resource.
- Magnificent material; Reverent narration
I was looking for an audio version of the Westminster Shorter Catechism that I could listen to during my commute, and I am so glad I found this version on Christian Audio! If you are not familiar with the Shorter Catechism, its question and answer format of summarizing the Reformed tradition of the Christian faith is magnificent. One can easily tell the countless hours that were dedicated to finding just the right wording for each question and answer. I found myself in awe of God as I listened to these profound truths read to me one after another.
Furthermore, Sinclair Ferguson's narration is excellent. He reads each question and answer with a slow enough cadence that you can let the words sink into your mind and heart as you hear them. And he reads each line with such reverence for the subject matter being discussed. And of course who doesn't like to listen to anything being read with a Scottish accent?
- A wonderful tool to learn and use.
I listen to it in our mini van.
- A wonderful, timeless tool.
The introduction was very solid with great clarity of purpose. The Catechism itself is as it has been for centuries. Much of our past centuries issues may have turned out far different had we not strayed from this tool as individuals seeking to know God.

- Sinclair Ferguson is a joy to whom to listen
Sinclair Ferguson is superb and a genuine pleasure to whom to listen. This has been valuable to which to listen to familiarize myself with the catechism, as I come to Reformed theology from the Catholic faith. It is played regularly on RefNet, which is how I learned of it. Highly recommended.
