The Christian Home

“What, then, is the context within which catechizing is to occur if it is to have its optimum sanctifying impact? First, the well-ordered Christian home is the foundation upon which is built the discipleship of covenant children in the ‘discipline and instruction’ (NASB, ESV), what the old version termed the ‘nurture and admonition of the Lord’ (Eph. 6:4 KJV). Fathers are charged with this responsibility” (Terry L. Johnson, Catechizing Our Children: The Whys and Hows of Teaching the Shorter Catechism Today, 2).
