Book Description

The Westminster Confession of Faith is a Reformed confession of faith, in the Calvinist theological tradition. Although drawn up by the 1646 Westminster Assembly, largely of the Church of England, it became and remains the 'subordinate standard' of doctrine in the Church of Scotland, and has been influential within Presbyterian churches worldwide.

In 1643, the English Parliament called upon "learned, godly and judicious Divines", to meet at Westminster Abbey in order to provide advice on issues of worship, doctrine, government and discipline of the Church of England. Their meetings, over a period of five years, produced the confession of faith, as well as a Larger Catechism and a Shorter Catechism. For more than three centuries, various churches around the world have adopted the confession and the catechisms as their standards of doctrine, subordinate to the Bible.

This Kindle edition is based on the transcribed text of the Confession at Reformed.org, as well as pieces from the 1658 book "The Humble advice of the Assembly of divines, by authority of Parliament sitting at Westminster : concerning a Confession of faith ; with the quotations and texts of Scripture annexed ; presented by them lately, to both Houses of Parliament," available at http://www.archive.org/details/humbleadviceofas1658west.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original Westminster Confession February 18, 2012
Verified Purchase
This is the original Westminster Confession from the 1600s and the not 1789 American version. It's is interesting to read the differences. This confession assumes a connection between church and state and the Christian civil magistrate is called to keep the church pure and to suppress all heresies.
This kindle version is fully footnoted to the scriptural references.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the wording... great reference January 1, 2013

I use this in a Westminster Confession of Faith study. My church is in the EPC, and I really don't like how the EPC reworded the confessions to be more contemporary, but losing so much of the depth in the process.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great treatise July 31, 2013
Verified Purchase
This document is one of the foundations of many modern Reformed traditions. The language can be archaic, but the message is still true and consistent with the Scriptures.
