Have greatly appreciated this work as a tool to use for discipling college students and enable to them to grow in their appreciation for the Confessions and the development of Reformed theology.
Seven important confessional statements produced in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries have been harmonized in parallel columns, and represent three strands of Reformed churches:
1) Dutch-German with the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort
2) Swiss with the Second Helvetic Confession
3) Scottish-English with the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Larger and Shorter Westminster Catechisms.
Also provided are a historical introduction to the confessions and an extensive annotated bibliography of Reformed theological writings.
"This work provides a helpful tool for ministers, scholars, church leaders, and all who love the Reformed faith. I am grateful for its availability." - R. C. Sproul.
