If there is "nothing new under the sun," perhaps the main task now facing the Western church is not to reinvent or be relevant, but to remember those vintage statements of faith that are part of the great inheritance of believers who have gone before us.

In The Good News We Almost Forgot, well known pastor, theologian and author, Kevin DeYoung explores and remembers the profound beauty, truth, and simplicity with which the 16th century Heidelberg Catechism systematically and carefully outlines the essential doctrines of the Christian faith while also revealing the overarching narrative of the confessing believer, from sin to salvation to deliverance.

Through fifty-two brief chapters, following the fifty-two "Lord's Days" into which the Catechism is structured, DeYoung reflects on what this 16th century statement of faith has shown him, elucidating man's guilt, God's grace, and the believer's gratitude in a warmhearted manner that's simple enough for young believers and deep enough for the more mature.

The Good News We Almost Forgot exposes the elegantly and logically stated doctrine of the Heidelberg Catechism that is at the core of our faith: we are great sinners and Christ is a greater Savior! Come and see how your soul may be grounded in the Gospel, transformed by the redeeming work of Christ, and continue in an ongoing formation after the image of Christ through a gospel summary that DeYoung writes "is glorious, its Christ gracious, its comfort rich, its Spirit strong, its God Sovereign, and its truth timeless."
