"If personal testimony is any encouragement, perhaps I may be allowed to place my own on record. I recall, with great gratitude,a period in my later teens when I first became acquainted with the Westminster Confession, and began to study it with the aid of a commentary. Looking back, I think of that as one of the most valuable investments of time and thought I ever made. It took me a stage further in understanding the greatness of God, the glory of Christ, the ministry of the Spirit, the nature of the Christian life, the church and the world to come. I sometimes compare that time of study to the activity of a squirrel gathering nuts which will see him through the winter! So it has proved to be. Let Robert Shaw be your guide, reading him with careful and prayerful thought, discernment and appreciation, and you will know what I mean." -Sinclair Ferguson
