The purpose of this study was to determine which catechisms were used, the extent of their use, and their general characteristics. More precisely, the aim was to determine the factors which led the Missouri Synod to adopt its own catechism only eleven years after its organization. The study continued from there with an examination of the first official catechism and the way in which it was receiced.
