If there is one enduring contribution of Luther, it undoubtedly is his catechisms. In order to educate the large number of clergy and laity about the basic elements of the Christian faith, Luther produced the Catechisms as guidebook for Christian living. This volume is a contextual reading of Luther's Small Catechism with Asian eyes, in which an ardent attempt is made to enlarge the meanings and significances of Catechism by taking account of Asian realities, especially the context of religious pluralism (which Luther was vaguely aware of) as well as a wide range of societal issues like poverty, patriarchy, inequality, ecological crisis, and other pressing issues facing Asian Churches. Surely, this volume will serve as a relevant instructional material for Asian Christians on the basic articles of Christian faith.
