Spurgeon's London Confession of Faith 23 Jun. 2004
By Seeking Disciple - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The 1689 London Confession of Faith (or Baptist Confession of Faith) was the doctrinal position held by Charles Spurgeon and his Metropolitan Tabernacle in London, England. The confession is not very long and Peter Master's has edited this edition with Scriptural proofs of the various doctrinal positions taken by the Confession.
Anyone who enjoys reading and studying the works of Charles Spurgeon will enjoy reading this confession. I would also urge the reader to look up the various Scriptures that Master's provides for the confession.

Advanced systematic theology 13 April 2011
By Joel Radford - Published on
Format: Paperback
To get a good understanding of Reformed theology, then you must read one of the historic confessions of the Reformed tradition. The Westminster Confession is the usual first port of call, but if you're a Baptist then you can read the Baptist version and if you're Congregationalist then you have the Savoy Declaration.

What does the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith teach? Advanced systematic theology. All the major doctrines of the Bible are present and accounted for with proof texts.

Why do I say it contains 'advanced' systematic theology? This confession was shaped by some of the greatest theologians who ever lived and every word of it is carefully chosen. This is not a document you skim read, but one you read carefully and meditatively. Thus, it is truly 'advanced' reading.

Is it for everyone? If you claim to come from the Reformed tradition I would recommend you try reading through it at least once. Firstly, to expose yourself to first class teaching even if you don't understand it all. Secondly, to give yourself some awareness of historical theology. Not everything in the document is supported by all those who call themselves Reformed today. Nevertheless it is good to see where your forebears stood on something like children dying in infancy and whether we are warned against the pope in Scripture.

Why read the Peter Masters' edition? The theology is hard enough without the additional struggle of reading older English. So this edition helpfully updates the Confession by making it more accessible to modern readers. Masters writes: 'In this edition the Confession has been updated so that archaic, antiquated words (and word endings) have been replaced with their modern equivalents. The punctuation has also been updated, and difficult-to-follow sentences have been reconstructed, but as little as possible to ensure faithful reproduction of the original sense. Where further explanation was felt to be necessary, or where much more modern words were called for, these have been inserted additionally in italic brackets.'

You may not get a Masters of Divinity by reading the writings of these doctors, but no doubt you will learn a thing or two and bring benefit to your soul.

Confessions 13 Feb. 2009
By Book Junkie - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Bapist Confession of Faith is the easiest to read and share with others. This book is small enough to carry with your bible. It contains the key elements of The Westiminster Confession and the Heidelburg confession. It contains scripture references. A must have for those who want a compact Confession to refer to and share with others.
