Thelemann’s exposition on the Heidelberg Catechism is a faithful representation of the doctrines and truths which constitute the heritage of the Reformed churches, and to which most of these churches are still devoted in faithful allegiance and loyalty of heart. The type of doctrine which is characteristic of the Reformed churches in all lands has been the means of making heroes and martyrs in the warfare of faith, and these truths, consecrated by the sufferings and blood of many faithful witnesses, are left to the church as a priceless legacy. The Reformed church will hold in undying remembrance the labors of Zwingli and Calvin, Frederick the Pious and his co-laborers, and of the host of those who have labored to establish the church upon the immovable foundation of the pure Word of God. An Aid to the Heidelberg Catechism provides practical exposition of the Heidelberg Catechism; the text of the questions and answers is based upon that of the first edition of the catechism published in 1563, adapted in its phraseology to modern modes of speech. It also includes an important appendix which provides a succinct and informing history of the Catechism.
