Modern Christianity is awash in a flood of doctrinal relativity. Satan and his forces love the imprecision and ambiguity which are rampant in our day - making it all the more important that we have clear doctrine to hold to. This exposition was originally published in 1989 to mark the 300th anniversary of the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith.
In this extensive exposition, Sam Waldron shows that the 1689 Confession is a masterly statement of the historic Christian faith. He writes in a direct and lucid style that will help ministers, students and laymen alike to come to a greater understanding of this Confession, and of its relevance and application to our modern age. Included in this publication is a helpful introduction on the legitimacy and use of confessions by Dr R. P. Martin.
This is one of my favorite confessional commentaries... 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."
