About the Book

Arguably one of the most beautiful documents ever penned, the Heidelberg Catechism stands as a jewel of the Protestant Reformation. Written in the form of questions and answers, it serves as a tool for teaching the doctrines of the Reformation to both young and old, but it constitutes much more than a body of knowledge to be learned. The catechism is also a confession of faith, a set of truths that is lived for and died for and believed into the depths of one’s soul.

The Beauty of the Truth explores the beauty of the Reformed doctrine contained in the Heidelberg Catechism through the eyes of an artist. Author Connie L. Meyer explains how looking at the catechism from an artistic point of view yields a perspective that reveals not only its beauty but also its truth. The Heidelberg Catechism aptly demonstrates how truth and beauty are one.

Uplifting and meticulous, this study reveals how the catechism's explanation of genuine comfort in life and in death constitutes not only its pure and unshakable truth but also its supreme beauty.
