I began reading the 'W.C' when I was, I suppose, 15 years of age. I did not know God in a personal, devotional manner until then. As, however, I read - and re-read - the Shorter Chatechism, I began to see the altogether loveliness of Jesus, my Lord and Saviour. I have moved from the 'purist' semi-sabbitarianism of this book, but, oh what a concise summary it presents, of the whole, vast body of Christian divinity. And, what a history! Second only to the Bible itself in changing this Scotland, England, Ireland and wales of ours into a cohesive, united Kingdom that once worshipped the Almighty, this book is to be treasured. It shows, clearly and with reverence, the way to salvation. By reading it, carefully imbibing its contents and applying them to one's heart, might one find true rest, and a definite assurance one will escape the aweful judgement that will befall this earth. Some parts might seem archaic, to be sure; but every bit is rich in historical relevance. And, now its available in Kindle: praise the Lord! I am a man in my seventies, and feel like a wee laddie again.

This work by the Puritan Divines, is the catechism of Protestantism. If one is a protestant, no need to be confused about any point of doctrine or the Christian life anymore. This will not only answer your questions on such matters and strengthen ones faith. This is one book that is most useful, to learn, to help one deepen their spiritual life safely.

It was very good ebook flowing easily. It explains the main points of confession of faith. At the end some problem with pedobaptism which I disagree but overall I personally suggest the ebook!!!

To understand and comprehend this work is to understand God's
revealation of himself to sinful man.
Much needed read in these days of froth and bubble

I was expecting to have cross references to the bible passages but this is just the plane text.

This is a simple, straight-forward copy of the Westminster Confession of Faith (WCF). The links from the 'Contents' list work fine. However, so far as its doctrine is concerned, there is much that does not accord with Scripture, especially those sections dealing with The Law. To anyone wishing to study the WCF I would recommend "The Westminster Confession Exploded- Deliverance from the Law" by John Metcalfe.
Metcalfe's book deals thoroughly with the errors and, in doing so, glorifies God and The Gospel.

(N.B. The Amazon.co.uk description implies that the WCF was authored by John Calvin. This is incorrect.)
