The Shorter Catechism Deck is a card deck that incorporates all 107 questions of the Westminster Shorter Catechism (17th Century) on 54 bridge sized playing cards. The idea for this project spawned out of necessity. The Shorter Catechism is normally printed in a collection of other documents, which can often make for a rather large book. So, what we did was create something that would allow for a convenient and practical catechizing tool for at home or on the go.
Each question, answer, and corresponding scripture proofs are printed on one side. When deciding the layout of the cards, we chose to approach it as a reference tool rather than as a game, which would have had a question on one side, answer on the other. The reason for this was to keep the deck as portable and small as possible, and also allow for a wider variety of usage. From personal study to catechizing your family, or even for use in your small group at church, we hope the Shorter Catechism Deck can be used to allow for a more convenient way to dig deeper into your study of the Bible no matter where you are or who you are with.
We did our best to create fair and worthwhile rewards! We understand that Kickstarter Rewards shouldn't be 1 size fits all. That is why created different backer levels for singles, couples, families, small groups, and churches!
Risks and challenges
Everything involved in developing the product is complete. The only risk that exists for you is to miss out on this incredible catechizing tool by not backing it!
The deck shown in the video is a prototype deck, and you can be assured that the final product will be an even higher quality!
We also hope to continue to sell these beautiful cards in the future. If they don't get funded there is the risk that we will not have the ability to set up an online store to continue providing them.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
