Beauty and Catechesis

Book Details

Beauty and Catechesis weaves together Luther's Small Catechism, fantastic works of art from history,  devotions, and collect prayers that tie it all together. This book also offers the Litany and collect prayers for the family to use together as they work through the foundations of the faith and prayer. This book is a 'must have" for the family who desires to learn along with your familial catechumens! This book is the perfect devotional for your family and you will never grow tired of reading, learning, and praying with it. 


From Rev. Dr. Peter Scaer, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Exegetical Theology Director of M.A. Program

“A picture is worth a thousand words, and the Word of God is worth more than the world and all that is in it.  In this wonderful little book, Mize combines Luther’s simple and beautiful teaching with a little bit of his own, and illustrates it with the beauty of timeless Christian art.  A feast for eyes and heart, mind and soul, this book is a wonderful devotional bringing us once more to the beauty of our Savior.”

From Rev. Bart Day Executive Director The Office of National Mission

“Beauty and Catechesis is not just “another catechism resource” to sit on the shelf. Pastor Gaven Mize has woven a delightful tapestry richly adding to the prayer life of the church. The blending of classical art, keen theological insights, and elegant prayers, make this a must have for those who love praying the catechism with their family. Young and old alike will find new jewels as the art, catechism, reflections, and prayers, draw one deeper into the Scriptures and the Christ who is found therein.”

Rev. Peter Ill Senior Pastor Trinity Lutheran Church, Millstadt, Illinois

“Beauty and Catechesis is a book written for Christians of all ages: for the young Christian who is just beginning to learn Luther’s Small Catechism and for any Christian who is continually learning the truth of the Scripture. Pastor Mize has provided a feast for the eyes and for the soul with gorgeous art from many time periods, Christ-centered devotions, and beautiful prayers, and collects. The accounts of the Old Testament are brought to life, focusing the Christian heart on Jesus Christ. Lutheran Church will GREATLY benefit from this book.”
