The Heidelberg Catechism: A Study Guide includes all 129 questions and answers with clear exposition and questions for review, further study, and discussion. The catechism was commissioned by Frederick III not long after his accession in 1559 to be a proclamation of the biblical faith to the world. Traditionally the writing of this catechism has been ascribed to Caspar Olevianus and Zacharias Ursinus. Yet further research in this century has shown that Ursinus alone should be considered the major contributor. Used in the Reformed Churches.
