From the Introduction: When I first read Jenson's A Large Catechism, back in 1991, it functioned in my life as a dazzling exhortation: Do not be the blockhead of whom Luther complained! Do not be a "lazy-belly and presumptuous saint" who imagines that he or she can absorb and master the Catechism at one reading, and who, therefore, tosses the book into a corner as if they are ashamed to read it again. Jenson's A Large Catechism reminded me and demonstrated for me that the Catechism is very rich, that we cannot plumb its depths, and that, as Luther said, "I must still read and study the Catechism daily, yet I cannot master it as I wish, but must remain a child and pupil of the Catechism, and I do it gladly." The great thing about this little book is that you will find in Jenson one who has remained a child and pupil of the Catechism, and who, in Christian friendship and grace, gladly shares with us what he has learned over a lifetime of study and devotion to these fundamental matters of the faith...
