From author Ernest Gentile:
This book uses an ancient, simple technique in teaching Bible truths. It is called a “catechism” because it employs a question-and-answer method.
In preparing this book I have carefully examined and compared the material presented in five other catechisms: including two of Martin Luther’s Catechisms, the Roman Catholic Catechism, “Understanding God” by Patricia Gruits, and the “Church School Bible Course” by Maureen Gaglardi. Each of these works has made its own significant contribution to Bible teaching, and I hope that my particular approach will also prove to be helpful.
