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.

The FatCat series gives children a vision of the Bible’s ethic (in the Ten Commandments), its confession (as summarized in the Apostles’ Creed), and its devotional life (given to us in the Lord’s Prayer). This ancient-but-new set of lenses, what the church has called the ‘rule of faith,’ will equip your kids for a lifelong Christian journey.
