    5 stars for content, 1.5 stars for being a sloppy reproduction appearing identical to a Google books photocopy. This is the only non-modern commentary or elaboration on the Westminster Shorter Catechism that I have yet run across that is directly accessible to a younger audience. I have been pleased with the results of using excerpts from it in teaching the WSC to High School students. It is of such high quality that I am surprised that there is no modern edition in print. Matthew Henry's approach is to follow each WSC question and answer by a sequence of half a dozen or so blocks of short and simple question-and-answer pairs. The answers are all Yes or No followed by a scripture quote or allusion that proves the point. The verse reference is provided in each case. Each block typically explores a distinct topic that motivates, supports or expands on the main question from the WSC. For examples, see the Google books reference below or www.shortercatechism.com. Content appears to be... More > identical to the PDF available at http://books.google.com/books?id=HikPAAAAIAAJ - compare the blemishes on the title page and the dog ear on the last page of text. Moreover, the source image seems to have been a little too large for the printed page size and not resized down, resulting in some clipped off page numbers and headings on tops of pages. At least the author's text appears to have been preserved, except where clipped by dog ears. You should buy this book if and only if it is worth the price to you to have a decently bound paperback copy vs. reading it online or printing out the Google books PDF for yourself.< Less
