I'd learned some of this back in 7th and 8th grade confirmation classes but we used a different book, and I hadn't reviewed it in some time. It was interesting to see the scripture passages that were used to develop some of the ideas in the Lutheran church. ( )

Kleine Katechismus. Spanish.

This contains Luther's catechism--the Ten Commandments, the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, a form of confession, and a form for communion, followed by an explanation of each of those. The explanation is in an odd outline format that breaks down the various parts of the catechism by phrases/parts, provides a short "explanation," and then gives Bible verses that relate to each part. The explanation is more of a reference than anything. I can see where this would be helpful for a pastor or teacher, but it's not that readable. ( )

Luther's Catechism was given to me in the summer of 1957 (58?) by Pastor Hulls of the Lutheran Church in Riverhead. It, together with "Catechetical Helps" had a profound impact on my formative religious beliefs as a young adolescent. It is a part of my German Protestant heritage and represents the faith of many of my ancestors. Although I was raised in a religious home, I had an unfulfilled yearning for God in my life and felt the need for a more rational theology. For me this was the beginning of my search for truth that eventually found fulfillment the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
