In this groundbreaking book, theologian, pastor, and popular author M. Craig Barnes reveals the Heidelberg Catechism's true identity. It's not a list of doctrinal questions and answers. It's not a cut-and-dried summary of what Christians believe. It's a deeply personal statement of faith and a surprisingly contemporary guide for everyday life. You'll find that this 450-year-old confession is a reliable and inspiring companion in a world where faith and doubt coexist. You'll also find comfort in belonging, body and soul, to the triune God.
