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 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, Covenant Theology, and Lectures in Systematic Theology’. He has also contributed articles to journals, periodicals, and The Reformation Heritage KJV Study Bible.
This volume will add richness to the weekly study of a pastor and give an invaluable book for church groups for enriching their biblical knowledge and the contextual consistency and doctrinal coherence of the inspired Scriptures.
Senior Professor of Historical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
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).
Pastor Ballston Lake Baptist Church, Ballston Lake, NY
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
Biblically rooted, theologically careful and engagingly written, this work is also consistently warm in its tone and practical in its application, authored as it is by pastors who are committed to the biblical truths that the Confession teaches.
