Catechesis consists of intentional, orderly instruction in the truths by which Christians are called to live - a sort of discipleship in 'mere Christianity'.

The fact that catechesis has fallen out of the life and practice of many churches today is a major loss, leaving Christians undernourished and spiritually sluggish. Professor J. I. Packer responds that 'it is catechesis - vital ongoing teaching and discipling - that hits the bull's eye': it is of the utmost importance in developing a church that maintains orthodox beliefs.

Packer urges Christians to know their faith so they can explain it to inquirers, sustain it against sceptics, and put it to work in evangelism, church fellowship, and the many forms of service – this is the Christian's business of taking God seriously.

Endorsement written for Taking God Seriously

Like many people, I first discovered what it meant ‘to take God seriously’ through reading J. I. Packer’s books. It is thus an honor and a delight to be asked to write a commendation for his latest work, a basic catechetical plea for sober, modest, thoughtful and orthodox theology. In a church world dominated by Barnum and Bailey circus antics and the brash triviality borrowed from the world around in the name of ‘engagement,’ Dr. Packer remains a truly engaging and gentlemanly advocate for those old paths which are ever fresh.
