The Confession of Faith drawn up at Westminster in 1646 by over a hundred leading Puritan ministers is one of the finest concise statements of the Christian faith ever written. In this commentary A.A. Hodge, son and successor of Charles Hodge at Princeton Theological Seminary, analyses the chapters and sections of the Confession, gives proofs and illustrations of its teaching and helps the learner and teacher by adding a series of questions to each chapter. The result is a fine handbook of Christian doctrine explaining all the leading doctrines of Scripture in simple language. Professor Francis Patton of Princeton Seminary called this volume, 'a very useful book, full of clear thinking and compact statements. It reveals Hodge's strong convictions, his power of analysis and his ability to make sharp and discriminating definitions.'
