Review by Pastor Kevin Wenker (LCMS):
In my 41 years as a parish pastor, I have had the opportunity to review many books and workbooks on Bible studies, Confirmation, the Small Catechism and the like. ...
Learning the Bible with Martin Luther contains lessons which are appropriate in length and understanding for the average confirmand. It has tests, practical examples, and illustrations. And, above all, it is absolutely faithful to Scripture, Lutheran doctrine, and the Confessions. It presents topics and lessons on stewardship and Christian service and life beyond Confirmation in addition to the chief parts of the Catechism.
I wish I had had this Workbook when I first started teaching Confirmation many years ago. I also wish I had this when leading adult member classes or reviews of the Small Catechism in Bible Class in Sunday morning Adult Bible Class. Why? Because this Workbook works for all age groups. The Workbook does not shy away from difficult applications, but addresses them faithfully in a way that is understandable for teens and adults. What a great resource this is for either a pastor or a lay person. The teacher’s guide is especially valuable. I will be using this Workbook with teens and adults, and it has been very well received by both.
Peter Kucenski’s Workbook on Luther’s Small Catechism has my highest recommendation.
I was very glad to see this workbook being published. I am sure it is the most comprehensive and clear workbook for Martin Luther's Small Catechism Luther's Small Catechism, with Explanation I have ever seen. I believe its topical approach to the teachings in the Bible will help any teacher of adults or children lead their students through those teachings in a way that makes good sense and is easy to follow. The insightful doctrinal explanations, thought-provoking questions, references to the Bible and to the Catechism, and passages for memorization will help students understand and retain the truths that God teaches through His Word. I used it for my own daily devotions, and was glad to be reminded of the greatness of our God, my own sinfulness and need for a Savior, and the wonder of what that Savior, Jesus Christ, God's own Son, has done for me and all people. It helped motivate me to renew my commitment to live for God and to help spread His blessings to the people around me. I highly recommend it!
