The Confession of Faith stands as one of the three major doctrinal standards produced by the Westminster Assembly. It has become one of the most recognizable and influential confessions of the Reformed tradition. In his introduction, John Bower provides extensive historical background for the making of the confession. The heart of the volume is Bower s critical text of the confession. Painstakingly checked and indexed, the critical text is supported by a four-column comparison of the authoritative manuscript and printings. It also contains a glossary, a bibliography, a catalog of proof texts, and an appendix covering the Assembly s discussion on the Thirty-Nine Articles of the Church of England. Bower s text is sure to be the benchmark for future study, modern editions, and foreign translations for years to come. Series description Principal Documents of the Westminster Assembly.
