The Westminster Confession is a worldwide foundational document. Churches of all sizes claim it as their confession, and hold to it with varying degrees of closeness. However, countless officeholders will have vowed to abide by it with only the most perfunctory of understanding of its relevance. Ligon Duncan has assembled an impressive array of contributors from a variety of ecclesiastical backgrounds. The aim is simple - to enable the 21st Century to understand the confession more fully, and so bring about the same kind of rugged, vigorous, intelligent and self-sacrificing Christianity that was the result of its initial publication. The topics covered include: - Westminster Spirituality; Westminster and the Regulative Principle; Old Princeton Seminary and the Westminster Standards; The Influence of the Westminster Confession of Faith on the Korean Presbyterian Church; The Eschatology of the Westminster Confession of Faith and Assembly.
