Sola Confirmation Series
Martin Luther's Small Catechism
(Single, pocket edition)
Featuring liturgical texts from the LBW and ICET ("International Consultation on English Texts")
8200 Series "Blue Version" uses the phrase "holy Christian Church" in the Creed
The Sola 2010 Edition of the Small Catechism is a faithful word-for-word translation from Luther's German Catechism. It also includes the section on the Office of the Keys, added later to Luther's Catechism. This pocket edition includes quotations from the English Standard Versions (ESV) of Scripture, and the traditional ICET liturgical texts (as used in the Lutheran Book of Worship).
The primary verses of Scripture, Creed, and Prayers are printed in italics; Luther’s explanations are printed in plain text. Luther’s explanations are formatted with a mid-sentence break to highlight contrasting phrases and to aid in memorization. For ease of use, specific page numbers from this edition of the Small Catechism are referenced in the Sola Confimation Series.
* What is the difference between the Blue and Red pocket versions? At the specific request of our customers, we have made a Blue Version (8200) with the phrase "holy Christian church" in the Creed. The Red Version (8100 Series) uses the phrase "holy catholic church" in the Creed. Otherwise, the text of the versions are identitical.
