Students learn the Six Chief Parts of Christian Doctrine through a review of Luther's Small Catechism. Each lesson introduces and develops the topic, then allows the student to respond with real-life applications of the material learned. Lessons are keyed to the English Standard Version Bible.
The course is arranged in five units, with a total of 60 lessons:
Unit 1—God’s Will (Law and Gospel; the Ten Commandments)
Unit 2—God’s Love (The Apostles’ Creed)
Unit 3—God’s Invitation (The Lord’s Prayer)
Unit 4—God’s Gifts (Confession and the Sacraments)
Unit 5—God’s Grace for a New Life (Confirmation and the Table of Duties)
This course can be used with God's Action Plan, which provides a Bible survey so that students have a knowledge of Bible stories that reveal God's unfolding plan of salvation before catechism instruction.
