Excerpt from The Larger Catechism
Secondly, a Catechism should contain the doc trines held by the Church, not partially or loosely joined together, but arranged in a clear and con cise manner, embracing, as an organic Whole, all that is essential to the Christian faith. The various doctrines of the Bible have a most intimate and inseparable connection, one with another, and this inter-dependence ought to be made plain to the catechumen by deducing each chapter from the one preceding, and applying the same principle to the consecutive questions. What doctrines may be omitted in a Catechism is a matter in no Wise optional. A proper Catechism will convey the nu mistakable impression of being complete, of con taining all that is essential to the Christian faith, IO as to form the living germ, the foundation and test of all subsequent Biblical instruction.
