How can we preserve the important link between public profession of faith and the Lord’s Supper without encouraging presumptuous attendance at the Lord’s Table? How can we guard against reducing public profession of faith to a mere confession of truth? How can we maintain the proper relationship between baptism and a baptized person’s responsibility to profess faith in Christ and show forth His death in the midst of the congregation? How can we encourage ever confessing member to engage in thorough self-examination before coming to the Lord’s Table?
Conelis Harinck deals with these issues thoroughly and with the maturity born of forty years of pastoral ministry. He interacts profitably with the biblical, confessional, and historical data on confession of faith.
