Westminster Systematics: Comments And Notes On The Westminster Confession

God tells stories a particular way. You see a dragon, and look for St. George. You see tyranny, and look for . . . Calvinists.

The Westminster Confession of Faith comes from the turbulent period of the English Civil Wars, and its architects lived through events that raised armies, overturned governments, and beheaded a king. In this introduction to systematic theology, Douglas Wilson takes the theologically interested layman through the Confession itself, reading the entire text and succinctly and clearly analyzing topics including the Trinity, the Fall, God's covenant with man, the sacraments, free will, justification, the civil magistrate, and more.

For those who want to dig deeper, Wilson has assigned extra readings and comprehension questions from three different authors (A.A. Hodge, Thomas Vincent, and Francis Turretin). The perfect medicine for a culture obsessed with word-bending and qualification, Westminster Systematics offers an unapologetic and systematic distillation of the word of God.

"Every member of the [Westminster] Assembly was required to take the following vow, which was read afresh every Monday morning that its solemn influence might be constantly felt: 'I do seriously promise and vow, in the presence of Almighty God, that in this Assembly whereof I am a member, I will maintain nothing in point of doctrine but what I believe to be most agreeable to the Word of God." ~ Egbert Watson Smith, in The Creed of the Presbyterians
