The Being Reformed: Faith Seeking Understanding series continues to grow, as three best-selling studies are now available in user-friendly, e-reader formats for Kindle and iPad.
Theology for Presbyterians by Donald K. McKim, The Heidelberg Catechism by Gary Neal Hansen, and Faith, Hope, Love, and Witness: The PC(USA) Form of Government by Paul Hooker have been formatted specifically for e-readers.
The participant’s books and leader’s guides are easy to download, navigate, and read. Supplementary links to multimedia resources are suggested in the electronic format of select studies, such as a video by Hansen about the new translation of the Heidelberg Catechism.
These studies can be found at Amazon.com for Kindle and within the iBooks app for iPad and iPhone. Participant’s books are $3.00; leader’s guides are $5.00. Congregational Ministries Publishing (CMP), publisher of Being Reformed, plans to have 10 studies available for e-readers by the end of 2013.
Being Reformed is a series of biblically based mini-courses that provides adults and young adults with a foundational understanding of the Reformed faith. Each six-session study — written by well-known and respected scholars — features Scripture, prayer, in-depth commentary, and questions for reflection.
Theology for Presbyterians focuses on what the Reformed and Presbyterian traditions have believed in the past and ways key theological understandings matter in our Christian lives in the church today. It is a recommended study for new members.
The Heidelberg Catechism invites participants to better understand the new translation of the catechism for the PC(USA)’s Book of Confessions, which was recently approved by a two-thirds majority of presbyteries.
Faith, Hope, Love, and Witness: The PC(USA) Form of Government serves as an excellent introduction to the new form of church government. Written in accessible language, this study explains core affirmations and the foundations of Presbyterian polity.
