Book Review: A Guide to the Westminster Standards

We live in an era widely dominated by dispensational antinomianism. Because of the free-spirit rootlessness of the age, there is little regard for historic creedal formulations. "We have no creed but the Bible," is the modern, self contradictory and illusory creed. Nevertheless, it is precisely because of the temper of the times that creedal studies and aids to confessional research are so important. Consequently, I wholeheartedly welcome the current work by reformed pastor, James E. Bordwine (Th.D. candidate, Greenville Theological Seminary).

Bordwine has performed an invaluable service to students of reformed theology in general and the Westminster Standards in particular. Both versions of his Guide to the Westminster Standards will surely prove helpful to student and scholar alike. Let me consider the book version first.
