    There are lots of works that contain, compilations of essays, yet most of the time it is a collection of essays in memorandum of a highly praised scholar or exegete. Other works are collections of essays which seek to prove a point, these types of compilation volumes are usually highly scholarly and are not much of use the pastor or Layman. It is a rare feat in which a collection of essays can be aimed at the Scholar, useful to the pastor, and understandable to the Layman. Christian Dogmatics: Reformed Theology for the Church Catholic is one of those rare fetes. This work, edited by Michael Allen and Scott R. Swain of Reformed Theological Seminary, is a fantastic and worthwhile read. Allen & Swain have brought together some of the greatest living adherence to reformed theology, in an attempt to write about important topics which affect Christendom as a whole. These scholars all wright from a staunchly reformed theological based position, which is guided by their interpretation of Holy Scripture, with a heavy reliance on reformed creeds and confessions as explanations of scripture.

    These scholars wright on topics such as the knowledge of God, the Holy Trinity, sin, the work of Christ, the Church, and scripture just to name a few. All of these topics are in debate in many Christian circles and a defense of the reformed biblical understanding of these topics was desperately in need. Each of these articles are not only relatively short in length but relatively non verbose, and applicable to the daily Christian life.

    Another important note is the understanding of the title of this work. Many misunderstand that the word catholic does not mean the Roman Catholic Church, rather the term catholic means universal (notice the little c), meaning the worldwide Church and not a specific group. So when you are reading the title or any part of this book when the term catholic is used in the text please do not misunderstand this term or be put off by it. These authors are trying to show the reformed view of the church bad supplies to all of Christendom, eg. The Church catholic. In the end I highly recommend this compilation work to any and all Christians to understand the Reformed Theological position on important matters pertaining to the Christian faith. No matter who you are scholar, pastor, and Lehman this book Bridges the gap between popular and scholarly level reading and is therefore aimed at everyone, a rare feat indeed.

    This book was provided to me free of charge from Baker Academic Publishing in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
