Any recommendations? We have our usual, but wanting to try different resources

We're Reformed and open for suggestions and ideas. 

Class is young adult and high school (leading towards baptism)

TIA

Hi Mike:

While not being an expert, I find the subject very interesting. Will share some findings and possible ideas that maybe be of use to you.

Googling a bit, found the following:

https://challengingthinkingblog.wordpress.com/2020/10/23/worldview-and-apologetics-catechism/

The article acknowledges the efficacy of catechisms, and takes it a step further.

Thinking about the subject, I wonder if there is any study that correlates:

Core teachings / doctrine, suggested hierarchy of doctrines, Christian Worldview elements, contextualization of such worldview, and application to allow recipients of the teaching how to put things in action.

So some other pages of interest that I found and would allow to do the above correlation oneself (to make it audience appropriate):

https://www.barna.com/research/a-biblical-worldview-has-a-radical-effect-on-a-persons-life/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christian_worldview

https://opc.org/new_horizons/NH99/NH9901d.html

https://www.gospelproject.com/the-importance-of-a-christian-worldview/

https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/justin-taylor/not-all-doctrines-are-at-the-same-level-how-to-make-some-distinctions-and-determine-a-doctrines-importance/

Hope some of the above helps.

Why not use one of the classic Reformed Catechisms like the Heidelberg or Westminster Shorter Catechism as the base? You may certainly want to bring in newer stuff in class, but we should remember that nothing is so out of date as last year's newspaper...

The Gospel is not ... a "new law," on the contrary, ... a "new life." - William Julius Mann
