5 Stars Out Of 5
Easy to Read and very Helpful
May 9, 2014
The book is an exposition on the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith which is a Confession on the Bible so as a result, this book attempts to explain something that attempts to explain the Bible. Because of this, the author had to cover many different topics in summary fashion. The chapters were on topics as diverse as saving faith and marriage.
For each chapter of the London Baptist Confession of Faith, there is a corresponding chapter in this book that first quotes the Confession chapter and gives an outline of it before explaining it. The author does not stop with just explaining the chapter but also gives some history on many of the thoughts of the Confession and how it compares to the Westminster Confession of Faith.
I was surprised by how easy this book was to read. Waldron does not have a scholarly way of writing that makes for dry reading but an amiable style that keeps the reader moving through the book. It was enjoyable to read and very beneficial as the author explained each subject in detail. The book would be useful for classes or personal study and there were study questions at the back of the book divided by chapter for this purpose. Overall, this book is rooted firmly in Scripture and I highly recommend it to be read by all people who seek a better understanding of either the London Baptist Confession of Faith or the theological thoughts behind it.
