A more devotional take on its division is proposed by Dickinson : 1. Christian privileges 2. Christian duties 3. Divine helps and the means of grace. Significant is the acceptance that the depth of meaning of the teaching of the catechism is only realised in later life when the child becomes an adult and in that sense is not to be regarded as being only for children Stevenson

Relative to other catechisms It is the genius of the Reformation and its continued influence that a single catechism does not serve exclusively in the Protestant church.
Most reformed churches accept the Heidelberg Catechism HC , Belgic Confession of Faith, Synod of Dordt and see these as complementing one another, without a single one exhausting all that is contained in the Word of God. In a like manner, the PBC is complemented in a remarkable manner by its inclusion into the context of worship, comprising of a library of ceremonies, rites and symbols, supplemented for instance by specific doctrinal views expressed by the church calendar, 39 Articles, modes of baptism and rubrics guiding its ordered praxis.
Such multiplicity however, on the one hand resulted in new texts coming about to accommodate the PB culturally, but also the consequence of weakening of theology on the other Gregory There is the opinion that its continuation may well have been that Christian religion maintains good order and well-being Gregory with an inseparable blending of its ethics and economics within community Gregory Additionally, PB or its generic equivalent rites and text were taken to represent a theological interpretation of biblical doctrines.
In this case, the catechism and the 39 Articles of Religion would have to be in accord with such changes. Towards the end of the s the Church of England sensed the need for revision, which included the catechism, and was undertaken by the Archbishops Commission, whose work was commended by the Convocations of Canterbury and York. Absent from the publication of the ASB however, was the catechism.
Other fundamental changes have taken place since For instance, The South African Anglican Prayer Book does not regard the biblical text but its authors to be inspired; in contrast, the Kenyan and Welsh catechisms regard scripture as inspired Turrel New catechisms have come about with different intentions, such as merely outlining beliefs as platforms of departure without being conclusive or coming to grips with precise content, such as included in the American and New Zealand Prayer Books Turrel New subjects have been added, such as stewardship, fasting and angels in the South African Anglican Prayer Book But the pendulum has also swung theologically.
Some view the PB as a prayer to God, for it expounds his words, bringing about a tension between worship and belief 12 in recreating the worshipping community through prayer and faith Turrel This does little for an emphasis upon catechetical teaching.
Doctrinal development is not simply unification in faith, but is now replaced by the integrity of people worshiping and choosing to do so by means of liturgy Morris This is a risk the church has to face Morris , affected by the further explicit tensions of culture and tradition in relation to scripture, in particular when it comes to interfaith dialogue Turrel In formulating the PB of the reformers followed the reformational dictum of subjectivity to the authority of scripture.
Whalon is of the opinion that though neither drastic nor minor they will affect the enduring use of the PB, because Anglican worship has never been a static tradition Whalon On the other end of the spectrum, Kraus maintains that the unvarying form of the words comprising the liturgy breed necessary familiarity, supposedly allowing continued focus on prayer and meditation.
Such mindless repetition is suggestive of it being a platform to higher exaltation and one can only conclude that even with change, familiarity may be regained. From the aforementioned context, the question is therefore whether the catechism has reached its sell-by-date or whether it still has a role to play in the Anglican Communion?
I submit that the same questions may be applied to any catechism, not least the PBC. How do other catechisms and confessions face this modern critical onslaught? Heron does not question the theological integrity of the Westminster Confession, but its theological adequacy and whether it continues its role as relevant of its teaching.
The compendium comprising the BCP since its inception was defined, formulated and honed in the spirit of reformed theology. Concluded by , it served as a unique treasure for the Church of England, ensuring its Anglican and theological identity to the present. Its catechism has always been found in the context of worship, sustained by the theology of the compendium as a whole to the benefit of the successive generations of baptised members of the Church of England.
The theological integrity of the BCP and its catechism is never the issue, although the intentions may differ from culture to culture and order their application or lack of, such as the catechism in some prayer books. Whilst points 1 and 2 reflect the historical inheritance that accompanies the PB, point 3 secures the integrity of Anglican worshipers but includes a desire for some leeway to meet the present challenges facing the Anglican Communion.
This needs some comment before concluding on a sell-by date. Chang develops the thesis of his book engaging unbelief along the lines of facing a historical story in juxtaposition with the present story read Western story. But the helpful insight that he brings in the first place, in my opinion, is the need to grapple with two languages; that of the seminary and that of a world in a postmodern epoch Chang This includes embracing the voices from beyond the West to include on the one hand that of Africa, Asia, but also that which shout so loudly through Hollywood and the Internet, physical science and biology, ethics and philosophy and so on.
The days of marginalising these voices to the periphery of the church are over. Indeed, some of the most crucial questions emanate from these voices. Christianity must address the whole of living and reality. Secondly, Chang wants to distinguish between what may be regarded as truth and the power to effect change. Christ alone possesses that power. This leads to some reflection. Extending the thought of authority reveals the PBC is mainly confined to an insular mono-cultural understanding of catechetical questions and answers deliberately framed to serve within the Church of England or Anglican ecclesial laager.
In spite of Christians sharing in sensus divinitatis, sadly the expression of their faith in the form of catechisms and confessions in South Africa did not prove to be sufficient to address the parasitical apartheid system which appended to and wove itself into the religious fabric of white South African faith.
Venturing beyond the mono-culture of one Christian faith to another is to meet with Christian pluralism and meeting with the challenges of their questions and grappling with their answers. An even wider horizon extends beyond Christian circles to meet with complete indifference to religion Christian or not , secular forms of faith, indifference to mores and justice not relativised and more. In addition to the previous, I would like to suggest that the catechism needs to clearly acknowledge that there is truth outside of the Church This means that the Church does not have authority to pronounce indiscriminately upon non-ecclesial matters.
It is the Bible that needs to be consulted and cautiously applied for fear of wrong exegesis and hermeneutics. This is no excuse not to venture beyond the traditional ecclesial boundaries, only a plea for extreme humility and caution. Necessary questions and answers for its community are needed to prepare the Church community for its contact with the book of nature day by day. I would submit that the right relationship with physical science, philosophy, economics, psychology, and so on should be regarded as suitable tools for aiding that complex engagement.
Conscientious tensions; distinguishing weekday ethics with that promoted on Sundays in gospel preaching pulpits, doing science in polarised fashions that vaguely resembles the scriptural model advocated from the pulpit and theologians may well be addressed to some extent in this manner.
Further limitations of the catechism have to be addressed. Matters such as the integrity of aesthetic appreciation, concern for ecology of the natural world, regardless of particular allegiance to some religion are matters critical for continued sustaining of humankind and without which human life would have been so much the poorer Cottingham ff. If it is, then God enters the fray and is relegated to some unexplained gaps in scientific theory to be imbibed by church members.
But the catechism must also be clear in its formulations; claims to further scientific light from some pseudo-science claimed to be based upon the Bible as explanation Chamberlain ; Cottingham must be resisted, for the concept of God is not of personal choice or of some lobby, but is based on acquisition of knowledge revelation being outside of time Kenny The same applies to moral purity.
Catechisms are not generally regarded as explanatory of good moral conduct in the world outside of the church community, taking the unique dynamics of the wider world into consideration. In the light of the aforementioned, I suggest that expanding the present Anglican Catechism be reviewed or better, consideration be given to framing an additional catechism, the status of which may be determined in time Christians live as the organism through which Christ acts in the world Chamberlain Jesus called his new people to serve as witnesses within the church and the world simultaneously; our children and members need, more than ever, to be equipped to do so.
The reality is that children must be instructed in Christian truth, incorporating the whole of reality and grounded in a living faith in Jesus Christ. This will probably necessitate additional questions and answers to be framed in addition to those in the catechism, so that Sunday living becomes part and parcel of seven day living in a hundred and sixty eight hour week.
A second catechism is not discounted.
For an Anglican however, the context of living remains that of worship of the God of the Bible, extended to include all of life. Ayris, P. Selwyn eds. Bonnet J.
