Daily Meditations on the Heidelberg Catechism

A Year of Biblical Encouragement

Meditations based on the Heidelberg Catechism

In Righteous in Christ: Daily Meditations on the Heidelberg Catechism, Dr. Doug Erlandson, a scholar and a former pastor in a Reformed congregation, presents 365 meditations on the 129 articles of the Catechism. The title “Righteous in Christ” points to the central message of the Catechism: If, by grace, I accept with a believing heart that Christ has fully atoned for my sins, I can have full assurance that the righteousness and obedience of Christ is mine as well. I can thereby have complete confidence that I am saved to the uttermost and by God’s grace will persevere until the day I am glorified and enter the presence of God.
