How can anyone, no matter how young or old, grasp the message of the Bible? The church’s answer has always been the catechism: The Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Ten Commandments.
The catechism teaches us what the Bible teaches us: our faith. The catechism is “fat,” bursting at the seams with meaning and challenge. FatCat is our way of making the catechism approachable, bringing theology to readers of all ages.
