This volume contains theConfession of Faith, theLargerandShorter Catechisms, and the other principal documents to come out of the Westminster Assembly. The text is newly typeset, and biblical references are given in full. Later American revisions of theWestminster Confessionare included in an appendix.
In Confessing the Faith, Chad Van Dixhoorn offers a fresh look at the Westminster Confession of Faith. This accessible, biblical and thoughtful work digests years of study and teaching into bite-sized sections.
Van Dixhoorn's work is historical and practical in its focus. It deliberately presents readers with more than another survey of Reformed theology - it offers a guide to a particular text, considers its original proof-texts, and seeks to deepen our understanding of each paragraph of the Confession.
This study guide is a resource that aims to make group study easy. The questions stick closely to the text of Confessing the Faith and follow the chapter subheadings that you will find there. Some questions cover essential doctrines; others explore scriptural passages; still others promote personal application. Each chapter ends with a consideration for prayer.
