About Luther’s Small Catechism
Brief, clear summaries of God’s Word allow individuals and families alike to use Luther’s Small Catechism as a powerful tool and prayer book. Though the catechism was written by Martin Luther in 1529, its question and answer format provides Christians with a timeless and easy-to-use guidebook that is applicable to all the various callings we have in life.

The Small Catechism explores the Six Chief Parts of Christian Doctrine: the Ten Commandments, the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, the Sacrament of Holy Baptism, Confession, and the Sacrament of the Altar. It also includes daily prayers, a table of duties for Christians, and a guide for Christians to use as they prepare to receive Holy Communion.

Good app

I really like the app... it is great to have access to this on the go. But why would you have the purchase option blocking access to the Means of Grace section? Of all sections, why block that... seems like a sales strategy John Tetzel would have designed 😅.

Simple and easy to navigate. Perfect.

This is the perfect tool for teaching and studying the faith in families. We've been teaching our children (5, 3, & baby) the catechism since winter this year. This app makes it so easy to turn to quickly for a refresher (to make sure I remember it correctly) before reviewing it with the kids (my husband doesn't need this when he teaches the kids, but his memory is better than mine).

The interface is perfect. So easy and quick to flip to each of the chief parts of the catechism. It also has the Christian questions and their answers. I can see this being a useful tool for older kids in confirmation classes as well.

And of course, you can't beat the price! Thank you CPH for a wonderful resource!

Paywall isn’t a good look

It’s not too expensive to pay for the whole app, but then why not make the whole app that way? Why give the out the bare minimum for free? It’s frustrating that the reason to download the app - the explanations to the catechism - isn’t freely available.
This, among other things, makes it seem like mammon is high on CPH’s priority list, unfortunately
