'This is one of my favorite confessional commentaries. It does vary (sometimes more, sometimes less) from studies on the Westminster Confession because of its baptistic approach, but Waldron is an excellent writer, and he has the advantage of being our contemporary. His examples and discussions of issues on which the WCF and LBCF are the same (Creation, Justification, Election, Sabbath, etc.) are excellent. This book is very well organized and clear.' --Fred Greco, Senior Pastor, Christ Church PCA, Katy, Texas

I have read this book straight through, and I look forward to using this work as a reference in the future.
Because of the content of the 1689 BCF itself, this book is very helpful in expounding and explaining the Reformed Christian faith in general. If anyone wanted me to recommend a couple books about Reformed Christianity, this would actually be one of them. His exposition of Chapter 3 is excellent.
Waldron, perhaps, spends a little too much energy in the final two chapters (on eschatology) which might have been spent elsewhere, but that is my only critique. These are some the briefest chapters in the Confession yet the longest in Waldron's exposition. He may have tried a little too hard to prove that amillennialism is the Confessional position, while it is my view that the Confession does not take a position.
Appendix A is a highly appreciated, informative historical survey of the 1689 BCF and its origins.
Finally, Waldron has provided study questions for each chapter which might be a great tool in a Sunday School class or home study or something like that.
