Product Description

The Westminster Confession is a worldwide foundational document. Churches of all sizes claim it as their confession, and hold to it with varying degrees of closeness. Its influence must not be underestimated. However, countless officeholders will have vowed to abide by the Westminster Confession with only the most perfunctory of understanding of its relevance to their situation. Ligon Duncan has assembled an impressive array of contributors from a variety of ecclesiastical backgrounds. The aim is simple--to enable the 21st Century to understand the confession more fully, and so bring about the same kind of rugged, vigorous, intelligent and self-sacrificing Christianity that was the result of its initial publication over 350 years ago.

Editorial Reviews

Derek Thomas has written a most interesting study of the eschatology of the Westminster Confession of Faith and Assembly. This volume will be of value to all with a serious interest in the work of the Westminster Assembly.
"If the historic confessions are to be preserved for the future, it will take the kind of sympathetic historic description and effective doctrinal argumentation displayed in this book.."
"...a most worthy undertaking and one that is quite timely not only because of the anniversary of the Assembly but also because of the need in Presbyterian and Reformed circles for scholarly work on the Reformed tradition and its confessions."
