Proclaiming the Doctrine of the God's Word: Using the Catechism Well in Worship

Jason Van Vliet

In Reformed churches catechism preaching, as it is often called, has been a staple in one of the weekly worship service for centuries. Long-standing practices, though, often need a fresh look. Why do we have this agreement in our church order? What questions have been raised about it, both in the past and the present? This speech explores the practice of preaching the doctrine of God's Word, using the time-honoured Heidelberg Catechism. It looks at the rationale underlying it and makes suggestions about how this kind of preaching can best serve God's people in our day and age.

As a kind of byproduct, this resulted in the publication of the book The View from Above: An Exposition of God’s Revelation to John (2020). In his presentation, Rev. deGelder will tell us how the sermon series came into being.
