In The Good News We Almost Forgot, Kevin DeYoung explores the Heidelberg Catechism and writes 52 brief chapters on what it has shown him. The Heidelberg is largely a commentary on the Apostle's Creed, the Ten Commandments, and the Lord's Prayer, and the book deals with man's guilt, God's grace, and believers' gratitude. The result is a clear-headed, warm-hearted exploration of the faith, simple enough for young believers and deep enough for mature believers.

As DeYoung writes, The gospel summarized in the Heidelberg Catechism is glorious, it's Christ gracious, it's comfort rich, it's Spirit strong, it's God Sovereign, and it's truth timeless. Come and see how your soul can be warmed by the elegantly and logically laid out doctrine that matters most: we are great sinners and Christ is a greater Savior!

    " Oh how beautiful is the Heidelberg Catechism! As a Baptist I am an odd bird, for Baptist are not by nature fans of confessions and catechisms. Though those of us who are Calvinistic in our leanings have an appreciation for them. We see them as handles or summations of the Scriptures. They have no authority other us in themselves; but are beautiful expressions of those doctrines we hold so dear. Do I agree with everything embodied in the Heidelberg? No, neither do agree to everything in the Westminster Catechism. I take issue with infant baptism; but that's OK, the subject is not a core issue reflecting upon salvation and/or the character of God. "

    " Kevin DeYoung gives an excellent overview and explanation of the Heidelberg Catechism, which in itself is an edifying and encouraging document. "

    " I had never read the Heidelberg Catechism before and this was a great way to go about it. The HC is divided into 52 Lord's day readings and DeYoung adds three to four pages of devotional commentary along the way. It made me want to read the HC more regularly. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Varney | 11/26/2013

    " Cracking book. Set out in tiny chapters covering a year of Sundays, so great for people who "don't read". Clear and concise presentation of the Heidelburg Catechism, brought bang up to date with some pithy lines and wise words. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Turnage | 11/18/2013

    " good theology about the gospel and the Heidelberg catechism...a little overbearing at times "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Awtry | 6/19/2013

    " The strength of this book lies in its accessibility. For a new Christian wanting to grow in understanding or for someone just discovering the Reformed catechisms, this could be a good recommendation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan Klinger | 2/1/2013

    " An excellent and easy read. It can be read like a devotional which is a nice feature. The author works through some basic Christian beliefs in a clear, concise, and yet profound way. Every Christian should get a copy. "

    " Wasn't sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed this look at the Heidelberg Catechism. Lots of great insight without being too "heady." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Henry Jin | 10/8/2012

    " The Heidelberg Catechism rocks, and for that I am very thankful this book exists. However, the parts written by DeYoung fluctuate - some are good, some are kind of off-topic. "

    " Very clear discussion of a beautiful catechism "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 6/4/2012

    " I really like the writing style of Mr. DeYoung, and again this book does not dissapoint. However, I don't agree with all that is said, however, this is a great catachism to not only read but more importantly study to get a clearer view of your faith and of Jesus Christ. "
