Reviews - What do customers think about Book of Confessions: Study Edition?
A sort of autobiography of Presbyterianism Jan 14, 2007
As a nondenominational Christian, I've become interested lately in the actual theology of the Church. I've been reading/searching for general histories and expositions, primarily from a Protestant point of view. Although this book is specifically a Presbyterian publication, beginning basically with the Scottish Reformation, it does a nice job of explaining the historical circumstances/motivation behind each document. The result is a very logical presentation of how Presbtyerian beliefs have gone from A to B over the past 300+ years.
The major theological confessions...in one volume Mar 28, 2000
Regardless of denominational affiliation, this book is a winner! The "Book of Confessions: Study Edition" takes most of the major Reformed theological treatises (and then some) and puts them in one handy book. Although this book was written by PC(USA) (of which I am a member) and therefore contains some of its theological biases in it (female ordination, "A Brief Statement of Faith," &c.) those in more conservative Presbyterian denoms (such as the PCA, Cumberland P.C., Covenanters, et al.) will find this book equally useful. This is a great resource in truly *knowing* the Presbyterian Christian faith.
