The Heidelberg Catechism (1563) is one of the treasures of the Reformation. Synthesized from several pre-existing catechisms including Luther’s Small Catechism (1529), Theodore Beza’s Confession (1558), Calvin’s Institutes (1559), catechisms by Johannes Brenz (1499–1570), Johannes a Lasco (Jan Łaski, 1499–1560), and chiefly from Zacharias Ursinus’ Catechesis Minor (1562), the catechism has been translated into dozens of languages including modern Hebrew. Since it was first published it has been adopted by Reformed churches in Germany, the Netherlands, the USA, Canada, Australia, Nigeria (e.g., the NKST), and by other churches across the globe.
The Heidelberg Reformation Association is pleased to present this new audio version of the Heidelberg Catechism. It is just over 1 hour in length. It is suitable for helping you and your children to learn the catechism or to refresh your memory of the catechism. The translation is a revision of the translation published by the Reformed Church in the United States.
