This short booklet provides a contemporary summary of the essentials of the Christian faith for enquirers, new Christians and baptism and confirmation candidates.
Written by the authors of the popular Pilgrim course, it follows the pattern of one of the most ancient teaching traditions of the Church: catechism.
Originally a form of baptism preparation in the early Church, it explores Christian belief through a series of questions and answers - the way that Christians across the centuries have learned and taken to heart the core truths of Christianity.
The Pilgrim Catechism complements the Pilgrim course in discipleship and acts as a summary for key questions that it explores, such as:
* What is the faith of the church?
* How do you become a Christian?
* What is worship?
* What is baptism?
* How did Jesus teach his disciples to pray?
* What is a sacrament?
* How can we trust the Bible?
* What is the hope in which we live?
Scripture quotes and texts such as the Creed provide many of the responses and throughout, disciples are challenged to work out their beliefs in their daily lives.
Stephen Cottrell is the Bishop of Chelmsford. Steven Croft is the Bishop of Oxford. Paula Gooder is Theologian is Residence for the Bible Society. Robert Atwell is the Bishop of Exeter.
Good basic starter for 10
Couldn't be simpler. A handy reference for explaining our faith to others.
I think this is an excellent booklet. Highly recommended.Wish I'd have had this at the start of my journey!

Small and functional - not read it yet
Good but one important typo (a word wrong in the Beatitudes) - have emailed CHP about it.
