About the Book

The Christian faith is rooted in both what we believe and how we are to live. Ten Words, Two Signs, One Prayer: Core Practices of the Christian Faith is an exploration of the practices and shared life which we celebrate together as Christians. It follows a long tradition of discipleship and catechesis in focusing on the Ten Commandments, the two sacraments of baptism and Communion, and the Lord’s Prayer. This book serves as the third, and final installment, in a series of books dedicated to catechesis. The earlier books, This We Believe! and Thirty Questions, focused on the Apostles’ Creed and the core beliefs of Christians. Together, these three volumes set forth the basic core of Christian discipleship. These are designed to be practical resources for a small group study, a guide for parents in training their children, a personal devotional guide, or a core sermon series for pastors.
