The edition offers an updated and expanded explanation, tackling issues prevalent in our culture today. With questions and Scripture references, the new Explanation provides more biblical teaching and devotional aids than ever before. Learn about the changes to the Explanation. Bringing forth the best of previous explanations of Luther's Small Catechism, the revision adds much that will enhance the use of the catechism in the home, congregation, and school.
In addition to the careful exposition of Christian doctrine in the six chief parts, material is included on the daily prayers and table of duties. These appendices added by Luther were overlooked in previous editions. The inclusion of prayers, hymns, and psalms under each section will offer yet another opportunity to use the catechism devotionally. Short interpretative essays on the liturgy and "How to Read the Bible" will help connect the Catechism even more closely with the Christian's life in the Word.
Luther's Small Catechism with Explanation - 1991 Edition
This new revision of the explanation of Luther's Small Catechism is fitting in this Reformation jubilee year as we carry the Reformer's legacy forward to the next generation. The new catechism explanation is down-to-earth, thorough, and cares for the souls of its students. In a fresh and helpful way the explanation beautifully teaches the riches of our Lord's Word and applies this teaching in a clear, insightful, honest, and pastoral way.
For example, the explanation covers abortion under the Fifth commandment with strong scriptural support for our unborn brothers and sisters, wise counsel for those considering abortion, and faithful guidance for those who have guilt over abortion. Throughout, the explanation gives our Lord's law undiluted, the Gospel in its full sweetness, and guidance for the life our Lord has called us to live. Access more promotional tools here. The updated explanation is great! We have started using it for our daily family devotions. The six chief parts of the faith are clearly explained with scripture references.
Thank you for all the effort that went into the updated version.

It is truly a blessing! There is a lot to love about the Catechism and Explanation. First, the pictures, colors, and fonts are very attractive to the eye. Second, the new lay out central thought, closer reading, etc is great for devotions AND will be a great Lesson Plan for Confirmation. Third, many biblical topics have received greater emphasis e. Creator vs creature, kingdom of God, resurrection and new creation have received greater attention and new contemporary issues are addressed.

After viewing the excerpts of the edition of Luther's Small Catechism with Explanation, I decided this revision was different enough from the blue revision and the red revision, both of which I own. Although I will always keep the version around, this latest revision appears to be relevant to the present day without sacrificing the Confessional Lutheran distinctives of the earlier editions.
When this edition is back in stock with Amazon in the hardcover edition, I will probably buy the physical book as well. There is a good reason why Martin Luther believed the Catechism and the Bondage of the Will were his best works and everything else was straw I'd add his Smalcald Articles to the Catechisms and the Bondage of the Will, which I believe he composed near the time he made that statement of his two best works. The Catechism and explanation not only teaches young children, but is useful in devotions for adult Lutheran Christians, along with Bible reading.
It is perfect in size, it has a really cool texture, the print is a good size, and the expanded notes seem to be very biblical and Christ-centered! If there was one thing I would like to change, and I know this is a more personal preference issue, it would be for Concordia to make another edition using the KJV, as many people still prefer this beautiful translation in a few years the ESV will be the old translation, and something new will be temporarily popular, but the KJV has stood the test of time, and time makes it only more beautiful!
It stands out as unique, in a sea of translations. Some exclusions may apply.
