1 of 5 Wish I had read the reviews more carefully December 25, 2019
Reviewer: Andrew Reid from Boonville, NY United States  
I agree with all the positives of the other reviews. However, if the intent is both stay true to the original text and aid in understanding, the proof texts should have been presented as footnotes for each phrase as in the original. It's a pretty book - maybe footnotes would make it less so. In any event, I bought this hoping to use it this way devotionally, but am now using an app on my phone and have a pretty book on my shelf.

5 of 5 Love this handy little edition July 31, 2019
Reviewer: Linda Au Parker from New Brighton, PA United States  
This is a beautiful, well-made edition of the LC. I like a book with nice features, and this small, inexpensive version has them. A bookmark ribbon, a textured embossed cover, smooth cream-colored paper, and those beautiful font features (as well as the highly readable font size itself). Lovely touches.

Nathan Eshelman's introduction is a nice addition and helps set the stage for a new appreciation of the LC. I've always appreciated C&C's vision for interesting products, and this one's a little gem. Thank you!

3 of 5 Glad for a new version of a venerable classic June 18, 2019
Reviewer: Rutledge Etheridge from Beaver Falls, PA United States  
Full Disclosure:  I received a copy of this edition in exchange for an honest review.
I'm glad for this edition, primarily for the opportunities it creates for human flourishing based on divine truth.  
Catechism-based learning provides personal entry into an historical community with roots reaching to the Garden and whose heart is her eternal Savior.  Christ is Scripture's central focus and the WLC helps to clarify our vision of the whole counsel of God.  It's thrilling to think what spiritual growth might be seen based on this new volume.  
A bit "boxy" in physical size and shape,  the new edition I received from C and C is user-friendly in size and in the clarity of the text and layout.  Dr. Nathan Eshelman's introduction tells readers of the WLC's essential nature and value, as well as the remarkable history behind its composition.  Eshelman notes that the WLC is "overwhelmingly underappreciated."  I'm happy for any, and for this, effort to mitigate that malady.

1 of 5 A huge stone left unturned June 17, 2019
Reviewer: Maegan  
I was initially quite excited when I saw this edition of the WLC from C & C as I needed a “gift quality” book for graduating seniors over the summer and to use as a devotional for my homeschool co-op students this fall. After doing some investigation I realized with disappointment that the cross references are not properly noted/numbered in this edition but are presented in a block so that the reader cannot tell for sure which proof texts go with a particular word or phrase within the often lengthy catechism answers. Perhaps once this printing sells out the book could be typeset  again to make this Larger Catechism more helpful to the reader. I will be buying another edition from another publisher with proper proof text notation.

5 of 5 A Larger Catechism for Devotional Meditation June 17, 2019
Reviewer: Hau Tzeng Au Yeong from Singapore, XXXX Singapore  
This outstanding new Crown and Covenant publication presents the Larger Catechism by itself (except with an easy-to-read introduction with just enough information to whet your appetite) and in an attractive hard-cover binding and with large, pretty fonts which are characteristic of devotional books. Most numbered questions and answers together with Bible-verse references fill up one or two pages on this almost-pocket-size book, with a few exceptions spilling over into three pages.
I heartily recommend this beautifully produced hardcover for those who would like to explore the rich theological heritage of the Reformed tradition and would like a more inviting presentation of its content.
