Kuske’s Luther’s Catechism which was used for many years since 1982 is written in two parts. “The first part of this book is a translation of the Small Catechism which Luther wrote in German is 1529. The second part of this book is an… explanation of what Luther wrote.”
“In the explanation, each part of Luther’s Small Catechism is explained in a question and answer form. After each question there are Scripture passages which give the Bible’s answer to the question. The words in italics in each passage indicate the part of the passage which is mst important for answering the question. The answer merely summarizes what the Scriptures teach.”

Can't be beat. It's always a good one to re-read, just for self reflection and orientation. ( )
