Excerpt from The Chief End of Man: An Exposition of the First Answer of the Shorter Catechism

The definitions of the Shorter Catechism of the Westminster Assembly have been always admired for the exactness and conciseness of the terms in which they are expressed. These qualities adapt them to the use of memory, being so brief that they are no burden to the mind, and so comprehensive that they are susceptible of being expanded into a full system of inspired truth. But this very excellence is the source of the greatest disadvantage which has been found in the use of the Catechism in the indoctrination of the young. For the terms of the definitions, though easily retained, are neither so easily committed nor understood as they would be if they were more diffuse and less technical. Hence it is so common to find children averse to the task of committing the answers, and when they have accomplished this, appearing to have very faint ideas of their meaning.

About the Author:

John Hall can still remember the first book he ever read. It was Harry The Dirty Dog. Since that day, he's always loved reading. When he was in fifth grade, he decided he was going to be a writer when he grew up and wrote his first novel, The Mystery of the Leopard's Eyes (unfortunately, it was never published and to this day, still sits in his desk drawer). But years later he did become a published author. John grew up in Brooklyn, with a younger brother and twenty-one cousins (yes, 21!), but now lives in New York City.
