For centuries, Baptists have published confessions of faith as formal statements of their beliefs. Chief among these is the Second London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689. It is a spiritual treasure trove worthy of our fresh attention. In this new study, more than 20 contributors unpack its timeless biblical truths, ‘things which are most surely believed among us’ (Luke 1:1). We pray that the Lord will use this volume to richly edify and sanctify His people worldwide, and to assist the churches in pursuing biblical holiness and doctrinal purity.
Rob Ventura (MDiv, Reformed Baptist Seminary) is one of the pastors of Grace Community Baptist Church of North Providence, Rhode Island. He is a co–author of ‘A Portrait of Paul’ and ‘Spiritual Warfare’, and is the general editor of ‘Going Beyond the Five Points’, ‘Lectures in Systematic Theology’ and ‘A New Exposition of the London Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689’. He has also contributed articles to journals, periodicals, and ‘The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible’.
Whereas there are many books dealing with one or two aspects of theology, it is good to have one book that gives those coming to Reformed Baptist convictions a comprehensive view of what we believe.

You do not need to agree with every sentence in this 1689 Confession to benefit greatly from its exposition by men of theological orthodoxy and pastoral integrity. Read and sink your mind and heart into the rich truths as expressed in this new work.
President, Westminster Presbyterian Theological Seminary, Newcastle, UK
In a most attractive, readable and scholarly way this rich volume presents historic Christianity as Baptists have absorbed it and been confessing it for the last 333 years in this grand statement of our best Confession of Faith. This book is a tremendous achievement.
Conference Speaker and author, Aberystwyth, Wales
Many of the contributing expositors of the chapters in this new exposition of the 1689 are veteran pastors in the latter years of their longstanding pastorates. May the following generations be faithful stewards as they have been, in profession and practice, of the “sound words” they have set forth in this new work. Herein is a legacy of truth to be bought and not sold (Proverbs 23:23).
