Caspar Olevianus is a significant theologian and his exposition of the creed places him firmly in the great tradition of the church. Pre-eminent authorities on Olevianus, Clark and Bierma have combined to provide a wider readership access to this important source of our Reformed heritage. Clark s detailed biographical introduction effectively sets the work in context, while Bierma s excellent and readable translation is a welcome addition to the corpus of classic Reformed texts available in English. --Robert Letham, Wales Evangelical School of Theology
