CPH Releases Mobile-Friendly version of Small Catechism

ssmallcatechismConcordia Publishing House (CPH) is pleased to announce the official, free mobile version of the 1986 translation of Luther’s Small Catechism. This new mobile website allows all smartphone and tablet users to access the Small Catechism from their devices, by simply navigating to cph.org/catechism and bookmarking the site, making access easy, everywhere they go.

Android and iOS App versions are in active development with releases anticipated to start in the next few weeks.

“Anywhere in the world, people can pick up their phones or tablets and freely access this essential resource,” says Dr. Bruce G. Kintz, president and CEO of CPH. “We are devoted to serving the church and world with resources that use today’s technology to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ as confessed faithfully in Luther’s Small Catechism.”

For years, CPH has made its 1986 Luther’s Small Catechism available free online. With the rise of mobile devices, CPH is now making it more accessible to people, wherever they may be.

With the English text, the mobile version also includes a Spanish translation, making the Catechism accessible to nearly one billion native Spanish speakers worldwide.

“In a time when many, if not most, denominational publishers are backing away from historic Biblical Christianity, our Concordia Publishing House is unquestionably the world’s foremost publisher of authentic and faithful Lutheran materials, and it is thriving!” says Rev. Matthew Harrison, President of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod. “This Catechism app will allow us all to do what Luther advocated and did himself. Like a child he daily studied and prayed the Catechism, which is nothing but the chief parts of the Bible which we all must know to be Christians.”

About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord, LCMSsermons.com, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

More of his work can be found at KNFA.net.


CPH Releases Mobile-Friendly version of Small Catechism — 8 Comments

  1. On Windows phone, the initial splash screen is skewed ( stretched out tall ) and the menu option in the top left is not working. Left to right work fine.

    Works good on iPhone 4S running iOS7.

  2. I like the 1986 translation but am more familiar with the 1943 translation which I’ve been unable to find online although I have printed copies.  Does anyone have a link?  Thanks.

  3. FYI – I’ve been using “Triglotta” – a free App for years now. It has the complete Formula of Concord, AC, Apology to AC, 3 Creeds, Smalcald, Of the Power and Primacy…, Small and Large Catechism, and Catalog of Testimonies.

    Just wish it also had Table Talk Radio’s “Praise Song Cruncher” too.

    I just went into App store and typed in “Triglotta” and it still works.

  4. Nice call Norm. Looks good on Android. Great idea – Thanks!

    Look at us talking about “Smart Phones!” Remember when home phones were tethered to the house, encyclopedias/libraries were the way to do research, catalogs were the old version of “Amazon”, and Church Growth Movement meant too many potlucks in one month………?
