Calvin's Catechism - by Dr. John CalvinCreeds and Confessions of the Church
A reformulation of the Genevan Catechism.
In 1560 Calvin Published a reformulation of the Geneva Catechism which had been used to train and catechize families. The republished catechism is in the form of a dialogue between a Minister of the Gospel and a young man, or as Calvin says, “a child.” I am persuaded that not many children today would go very far in the conversation Calvin is holding with this “child.”
The catechism is excellent. Those who hold to its doctrine will be quite proficient in religion.
I have taken a portion of this catechism and duplicated it in the Lord’s Day Section of this website.
I have also taken the liberty of dividing the Catechism into 4 sections to help manage the document. Calvin did not separate the Catechism at all except for the obvious section breaks in the flow of thought.
