Christians have a rich heritage if they would be willing to humble themselves and see what God has taught His church in past ages.
And there's more! Also included are an introduction explaining the historical background of each of the seven confessions and an annotated bibliography. The bibliography is organized by subject, and points us to the best English works up through the twentieth century on the various topics of the confession, giving a short summary of each work. On the doctrine of God, for instance, there are twelve recommended works, from Charnock's classic, Discourses on the Existence and Attributes of God, to the more recent classic, J. I. Packer's Knowing God.
This is a large book--8 1/2 x 11 and 288 pages--which helps make the seven columns easy to read for old fogies like me who have difficulty with fine print. It's paperback, but with the sort of heavy cover and pages that text books are made of, so I expect it to stand up to repeated use better than most paperback books.
I love charts and comparing things, and that means I love this book for the format alone. I also love history and theology--and historic confessions, especially. You can't imagine how much I've enjoyed comparing the different confessions, seeing where they differ and where they all agree. This kind of book is not for everyone, I know, but I'm pretty sure there are at least a few others who love things like this as much as I do.
