This past year instead of listening to books on tape, I used the time to learn a little Spanish. I took a class once a week at church and recorded our notes and new words to listen to as I drove. That worked well (except for not learning spelling or accent marks). A couple weeks ago Spanish class ended and I was glad that I would not "have to" listen to Spanish anymore. I was ready for something else.
Well, about that same time, I found the perfect solution in World magazine. There was an add in the back for learning the shorter catechism by listening to CD's with each question and answer put to music. Ever since I went through a Presbyterian Church membership class in high school where they used the shorter catechism but didn't require us to memorize it, I've always thought it would be a good thing to know. Though I had started to learn the questions once or twice, I never followed through long enough to make much progress. Well, the CD's are great. I've been listening to the first CD for two weeks now and it's fun to have the questions running through my head. If you're interested in learning the catechism, this is definitely the way to go. The music is by a lady named Holly Dutton and you can check out her website to listen to sample questions and purchase the CDs here.
