The 95 QUESTIONS in
The Story of God and Man
Empowering 3 generations with a classic Biblical world view in a 192-page, full color, children’s picture book with 95 rhyming Q & A’s in ten sections and ten songs, in just 7 minutes a night!
Based on the Bible; The Heidelberg Catechism of 1563; The Westminster Shorter Catechism of 1647; and The Baptist Catechism of 1693.
DID YOU KNOW that the New England Primer of 1778 for first grade readers included The Westminster Shorter Catechism so that every child in their public school system could memorize all 108 Q & A’s about God and his ways, and thus be protected by a Biblical world view? Well, since we are a very long way from those days, that glorious task now falls to grandparents, parents, pastors, teachers, churches, Christian schools, and home schools!
This is what inspired me to blend the three most influential Protestant catechisms in history; condense them into 95 rhyming, core Q & A’s; connect them with memorable images; and organize them into 10 sections/songs to make it crazy easy for 3 generations to discover the depths of God together with a trans-denominational Biblical world view!
If you can read a child a picture book . . . sing a song with them . . . and pray with them as you tuck them into bed in about 7 mintues every night (one section per week), the memorization process will be virtually automatic . . . for all of you! And for even quicker results, just play the music in the car and at home, and encourage the use of it in your church and school (discounts on muliple orders) for an epic voyage of getting grounded in the foundations of the faith!
May I invite you to scroll down to get a peek at the pages, text, and songs; click on the square icons to place an order; and launch your family on a journey that will bless you, literally, FOREVER? I hope you will. And if you do . . .
