    Covenantal Catechism Book 1

    Covenantal Catechism helps parents raise children who need more Scriptural understanding of Genesis to Malachi so they can make a clear and complete biblical confession of faith and live it out. Each lesson has 4 review questions; 4-8 memory questions; memory song; Bible reading assignment; lesson explanation; questions on the lesson.

    Catechism Means Question and Answer

    Book 1 is for beginners or ages 5-6 and surveys Genesis to Malachi. It contains lessons, reviews, memory work and songs, and Bible reading assignments. The Teacher's Handbook contains instructions for effective teaching of Book 1: Genesis to Malachi and an answer key

    This package includes:

    After Jesus had led and taught the disciples three years, He posed this question to them, "Who do you say that I am?" Peter answered, "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God."

    Embedded in that short exchange is the essence of catechism and the essence of the covenant. Covenant is God revealing Himself and his people responding. This catechism curriculum then is built on that premise.

    Since God’s revelation of Himself is one of the words He expects His people to respond first of all with words. It is upon that "God speaking, people answering" dynamic that this covenantal catechism program is based.

    Teaching What God Says—The Bible

    The first part of a covenantal catechism program then will consist of teaching our children what God has said and is saying to them in His Word, the Bible. The series of books you see on this site is dedicated to assisting in filling that purpose—to reveal through the Bible the Word and works of our God. We may call this first part Scripture Catechism.

    Teaching What the Church Answers—The Confessions

    The second part of a covenantal catechism program will teach our children how they should answer our God; what confession of faith they should make. This normally takes form by teaching them the confessions of the church to which they belong. Although Line of Promise Press does not yet publish confessional catechetical material, much is available. You will find a page listing material available on this site. We call this second part Confessional Catechism.

    What Is Our Doctrinal Position? Reformed and Covenantal

    These books are Scripture Catechism, and express a standpoint that is both Reformed and covenantal.

    The teaching is Reformed.

    The books teach from a perspective reflecting the great Reformation confessions — the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dort, and the Westminster Confession and Catechisms. They belong to the heritage commonly known as “Reformed” to distinguish it from the Lutheran and Anabaptist streams of the Reformation.

    Our Scripture catechism books clearly follow the great Reformation themes of Scripture Alone, By Faith Alone, Through Grace Alone, By Christ Alone, and To God Alone Be the Glory.

    The teaching is clearly covenantal.

    • The books and lessons teach that the Bible is the one revelation of the Triune God. God’s revelation is one, His church is one—Old Testament and New Testament—His salvation is one, always and only through Jesus Christ, from Adam onward.
    • They teach that God, from Adam to the present, has included children in the unbelief, and also in the belief, of their parents. These books, therefore, teach that infants born to believers are, along with their parents, members of the Church of Jesus Christ.
    • They teach that as God establishes His covenant with children, He speaks to them through His Word, also by means of catechism instruction, and expects and requires an answer of faith from these children.
    • They teach that the children are a covenantal unity of prophet, priest, and king. This means that the children, as an image of God, have been equipped with intellect, emotion, and will. This catechetical instruction will seek to inform their intellect, their mind; to call for a response of faith and love from their heart, and finally to challenge them to choose, to act, to live, in obedience to God.

    John Owen commends catechism teaching by saying, "More knowledge is ordinarily diffused, especially among the young and ignorant, by one hour’s catechetical exercise, than by many hours continual discourse." You will find that all the great Reformers and church leaders of the 16th and 17th centuries—Calvin, Luther, Knox—called catechetical instruction essential.

    "What I like most is that it focuses on number sense, mental math and learning that there is often more than one way to approach a math problem. The table of contents and layout makes it very easy to skip around or find what topics that you want to teach. There are plenty of problems and while we only do about 1/3 of them until mastery is demonstrated, you could easily spiral back for review or do more problems when it was a difficult concept.." Jennifer.

    The Old Stories Bundle

    In the Time of Noah

    When giants rule the world, God decides that it is time to make an end of all living things: except for one man and his boat.

    Before the Flood, there was a world dominated by giants, bloodthirsty and merciless. God was grieved. He would judge the world. But He would also save the world. This beautifully illustrated children's book is full of imagination, beauty, and excitement. Written by N.D. Wilson and beautifully illustrated by Peter Bentley, In the Time of Noah chronicles the history of Noah's obedience, from the building of the ark and the taming of the beasts, to the grounding at Ararat and the promise of the rainbow. The Old Stories series are designed to help children (and adults) re-imagine biblical stories, seeing things they have never seen before. Ages 4 and up.

    Get ready to step into a world of shepherds and rebel kings, kidnappings and faithfulness, chariot dust and slime pits, vision and belief -- it all comes to life in the vividly illustrated Sword of Abram.

    N. D. Wilson and Forrest Dickison tell the story of our father in the Christian faith with wild realism that brings new depth to old truths. Ages 5 and up.

    The Dragon and the Garden

    Once upon a time, there was a man and a woman in a Garden. And then suddenly, a serpent.

    This retelling by children's author N.D. Wilson and illustrator Peter Bentley looks at the story of our first parents with wild realism, but also with a childlike honesty and clarity that bring new depth to an old truth.
