In this groundbreaking book, theologian, pastor, and popular author M. Craig Barnes reveals the Heidelberg Catechism's true identity. It's not a list of doctrinal questions and answers. It's not a cut-and-dried summary of what Christians believe. It's a deeply personal statement of faith and a surprisingly contemporary guide for everyday life.
You'll find that this 450-year-old confession is a reliable and inspiring companion in a world where faith and doubt coexist. You'll also find comfort in belonging, body and soul, to the triune God.
Body & Soul is based on the latest ecumenical translation of the Heidelberg Catechism approved by the CRC, the PC(USA) and the RCA. Additional resources include a companion DVD (sold separately) featuring video introductions by M. Craig Barnes for use in a six-session study. The event kit (also sold separately) provides resources for using Body & Soul as the basis of a six-week all-church study.
