    Looking for Westminster Standards in JSON or XML format

    Does anyone know where I can find the Westminster Standards (with proofs) in a parsable format like JSON or XML? There's CatechizeMe API : catechizeMe, though I haven't asked if I could use it, and even if I could, it doesn't include proof texts.

    Advice for teaching catechism class...

    First off, sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I almost put it in "preaching" (as it involves teaching), but decided that didn't fit either. :scratch: Here's my situation: I was raised in a semi-pelagian Baptist church. As such, I've never been part of a catechism class, either as a...

    Best Version of Heidelberg Catechism

    This has already been discussed here, but the discussion wasn't very long and the thread is closed. What version of the Heidelberg catechism do you recommend? I'd prefer one in modern English, and preferably, with nice formatting. I found one supplied by the Reformed Church in America here...
