Catechetics: Fixing Confirmation – book by Rev. Lincoln Winter now available.

Greetings in the Name of Jesus.

In 2014 I published Teach These Things: Catechesis for the Lutheran Parish. I hope it’s been a blessing to you in your ministry. (A 2nd Corrected edition was released in 2016.  If you haven’t upgraded yet, head to and use the code “thou shalt not steal” to get a free download.)

The companion volume, Catechetics: Fixing Confirmation has now been released. It’s available at, as either a hardcover or paperback. This week (through Thursday), you can get Catchetics for a 15% discount with the code ONEFIVE.

Here’s what Paul Cain, Pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Sheridan, WY has said about Catechetics:

Catechetics: Fixing Confirmation, is a necessary book. Recapitulating, updating, and improving upon the standard works on the topic, Catechetics explains how Confirmation in The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod reached its current state, and how a distinctly Lutheran catechesis can begin the work of repair, patiently bearing fruit over the next generations. Lutheran parents, pastors, educators, and church and school leaders would benefit from a return to Lutheran catechesis, wider use of the Large and Small Catechisms of Martin Luther, and collectively reading this landmark volume. This book will be especially encouraging to classical Lutheran educators! Faithful, honest, frank, yet constructively helpful and practical, Catechetics: Fixing Confirmation deserves wide distribution, readership, and application.

Paperback is available for $36:

Hardcover  is available for $45:

If you haven’t checked out my website, there are a lot of free resources (some of them are new) at

You’ll find “No More Tears Examination: The Catechism Review Game Show”, “The Promised Savior” a Christmas Program for small & large parishes, Luther’s Latin Litany (in Latin), and Footwashers: Following the Jesus Way, a Lutheran look at biblical ethics by Dr. William Lehmann, one of my professors back in the day at CURF.

I also have some other books available: Evolution: A Defense AgainstWhat Every Christian Must Know (Outlines from Luther’s Large Catechism), and Life of Luther by Gustav Just. The links are all at TeachTheseThings, so head over and look around.

I pray that God would bless you this Lententide, as we journey again to the cross to hear of our Lord’s death and resurrection for our salvation.

  1. Thanks for the shoutout! I’m getting a lot of buzz about this. I think you’ll all want to read this one.
    One minor correction, the discount code listed for Teach These Things was for those who had previously purchased it, and wasn’t meant as a free-giveaway for everyone. The LULU discount is for everyone.
    If you previously ordered Teach These Things, but haven’t upgraded to the second corrected edition, let me know via PM or e-mail and give you the new, improved discount code. (The one listed above has been deactivated.)
    Blessed Holy Lent to you all!

  2. Any work on drawing attention to the deficit in catechism teaching is welcomed and appreciated. As a layman I have been concerned in this area for a number of years and in moving around the country I have had the misfortune to have had a few pastors who do not do a very good job in this area, and a couple who a did very a poor job. So thank you for your efforts. Do you have this available in file form so I might use attributed quotations in one or two of my projects?

    Two years ago I undertook a project to collect from public sources Luther’s Small Catechism and assembled a PowerPoint presentation which includes explanations on how the SC came about, a little bit about the history of Wittenberg at the time, plus all three creeds with an introduction on their origins. To all of this I added active links to supporting information and classical graphics. The instructor can activate these active links while presenting if their laptop is hooked to their local area network, casually known as Wifi.

    It is now available for free download on the ACELC Website,

    I have related Lutheran studies on my website that are also available for free for download at
