THE BAPTIST CATECHISM
with Scripture Proofs
Introduction with Slight editing by Dr. James Renihan

FINALLY BACK IN PRINT AGAIN.

This is the 2004 updated edition of THE BAPTIST CATECHISM which was originally published by order of the Particular Baptist General Assembly that met in London in 1693. Dr. James Renihan has given us a "slightly modernized and edited version" that has proven very useful to Reformed Baptist Churches all over the world for the past ten plus years.

In the opening words of the Introduction Dr. Renihan speaks for the Association of Reformed Baptist Churches of American, when he writes: "With great joy we present this Catechism to the church of Jesus Christ. It has a long and noble history, and we trust it will be of great usefulness to many more generations of Christians. We believe that an important part of the teaching office in the church is the provisionj of sound and solid theological materials for use by parents, and this little document wonderfully meets that need."

C.H. SPURGEON said the following: "I am persuaded that the use of a good Catechism in all our families will be a great safeguard against the increasing errors of the times, and therefore I have compiled this little manual from the Westminster Assembly's and Baptist Catechisms, for the use of my own church and congregation. Those who use it in their families or classes must labor to explain the sense; but the words should be carefully learned by heart, for they will be understood better as years pass. May the Lord bless my dear friends and their families evermore, is the prayer of their loving Pastor."

JOHN MURRAY, the great 20th century theologian, told the children in his Sunday School class the following about the surpassing value of The Shorter Catechsim: "Now everyone of you children should know the Shorter Catechism from the beginning to the end without a mistake by this age. Now that's without joking at all. At the age of twelve you ought to know the Shorter Catechism from beginning to end without even making a mistake. You don't know what you are missing! Get down to learning it, if you haven't already learned it! It will not only give you the most perfect human compendium of Christian truth that there is in the whole world but it will be the finest mental exercise and it will lay a foundation in your mind and in your life for a hundred other things as well as for true religion. The mere mental discipline of learning it with exactness down to each preposition is one of the best disciplines that we know of in this world in the field of education. The primary reason is to learn it for the purpose of having in your mind a comprehensive compendium of Christian truth, but even apart from that there are a hundred by-products. It will be invaluable to you through your whole life, and not only in this life but in the life which is to come. "

THE LORD'S DAY STILL IS by John Giarrizzo, is a brand new title written by a pastor who has served the same church for 30 years. The burden of this larger booklet is to demonstrate that the Lord's Day is not an antiquated idea which is no longer relevant to today's modern church. It is a very practical and readable booklet which can be placed in the hands of church members and vistors as well.

OUR VERY LATEST BOOKLET
THE LORD'S DAY STILL IS
Making a Case for the Relevance and Permanence of the Fourth Commandment
John Giarrizzo

My dear brother in Christ and friend in the Gospel, Pastor John Giarrizzo, begins his helpful treatment of the subject of the Lord's Day with the following words:

Why write a booklet about our obligation to keep the Lord's Day holy? There are two basic answers to this question. One revolves around God; the other involves people like you. Regarding God, who has revealed his will in his holy Word, this issue relates to his character. God is worthy to be honored and glorified. As the infinite, eternal, and unchangeable God, he is worthy to be glorified for who he is. As the Creator and Sustainer of all things, and the Redeemer of elect sinners, he is worthy to be honored for what he has done. If God calls us to keep the Sabbath holy and we do not, then this is a serious offense to such a glorious God. David's love for God moved him to say, 'My eyes shed streams of tears, because people do not keep your law' (Ps. 119:136). David was grieved over the thought that the law of his God was being broken. Appealing to those who break the Sabbath is a way of saying, 'Don't do this to such a great God.' The second reason for writing is more personal, even pragmatic. It has to do with the blessings that God holds in store for those who keep the Sabbath holy and the painful consequences for those who do not.

A small booklet may have little impact on those who firmly oppose any idea of being under an obligation to keep one day a week holy to God. But for those who have not really looked into the question of the Sabbath day and its present-day relevance, my prayer is that this will give some helpful guidance in God's Word. What you are about to read is really nothing new, rather it is fairly old - as old as the Word of God. My desire is to come as Elihu came to Job, contributing fresh insights to an old dialogue (Job 32:10). But I also feel the weight of those words by the Preacher, 'Is there a thing of which it is said, "See, this is newĘ? It has been already in the ages before us" (Eccles. 1:10). Because this can be a difficult subject we should begin with earnest prayer. Please take a moment with me to ask the Lord to enlighten the eyes of our understanding so that we will be able to discern in his Word what is right and true in relation to the subject of the Sabbath.

DENOMINATIONS OR ASSOCIATIONS
Essays on Reformed Baptist Associations
David Kingdon, Earl Blackburn, James Renihan, Erroll Hulse, David Dykstra

Here is an excellent book for those who desire to learn more about Reformed Baptist Churches and their history. It seeks to demonstrate the difference between Denominations and Associations of Churches, and it does so by drawing from men from the United Kingdom as well as the United States. Here is a wonderful combination of Scriptural Exposition, Church History and Confessionalism tied together in one volume. The three Appendices present important documents from the past that speak in a very direct way to the issues facing churches in our day.
