Truths We Confess: A Systematic Exposition of the Westminster Confession Of Faith HB
The Westminster Confession of Faith is one of the most precise and comprehensive statements of biblical Christianity, and it is treasured by believers around the world. Dr. R.C. Sproul has called it "one of the most important confessions of faith ever penned," and it has helped generations of Christians understand and defend what they believe. In Truths We Confess, Dr. Sproul introduces readers to this remarkable confession, explaining its insights and applying them to modern life. In his signature easy-to-understand style and with his conviction that everyone’s a theologian, he provides valuable commentary that will serve churches and individual Christians as they strive to better understand the eternal truths of Scripture. As he walks through the confession line by line, Dr. Sproul shows how the doctrines of the Bible—from creation to covenant, sin to salvation—fit together to the glory of God. This accessible volume is designed to help you deepen your knowledge of God’s Word and answer the question, "What do you believe?"
"The Westminster Confession of Faith is the fruit of the Reformation century of biblical study, theological reflection, and pious experience. As a great confession, it summarizes essential biblical teaching, unites Christians in the truth, and testifies to the world what we believe. Biblical, faithful, mature, and wise--the Westminster Confession of Faith and Dr. R.C. Sproul! A superb theologian, teacher, and preacher leading us through the finest Reformed confession. Here is an invaluable classic."
--Dr. W. Robert Godfrey
"Several fine commentaries exist on the Westminster Confession of Faith, but this one excels all of them by a wide margin. R.C. was the quintessential communicator, both orally and in written style. This massive volume ranks as a systematic theology itself--a tour de force ensuring that, to cite another of R.C.'s books, everyone's a theologian. If you call yourself Reformed in your theology, this is undoubtedly the best book you will ever read."
--Dr. Derek W.H. Thomas
"This epic book, Truths We Confess, is a priceless treasure, a vast gold mine of Reformed doctrine. Here is Dr. R.C. Sproul in the classroom, teaching the Westminster Confession of Faith--it does not get any better than this. As a former student of this master teacher, I can hear--and even feel--my beloved professor's voice on every page of this tour de force of sound teaching. Dr. Sproul's genius is taking profound theology out of the scholastic ivory tower and bringing it down to the layman in the pew. That is what we have here--Sproul at his best, the premier teacher of our day expounding classic, time-tested Reformed theology."
--Dr. Steven J. Lawson
"Here we have one of the most eloquent and clear confessions of the Reformation paired with commentary by one of the most eloquent and clear teachers of our day. The Westminster Confession of Faith takes us through the whole counsel of God, providing timeless truth and offering more conviction per page than just about any document from church history. Dr. R.C. Sproul brings this tried-and-true text to bear on the church and life today. If the Westminster Confession is already familiar territory to you, you'll be encouraged as R.C. leads you even deeper. If the Westminster Confession is new terrain for you, R.C. will be your trusted, reliable, and sure guide for the journey."
--Dr. Stephen J. Nichols
"What Christian would not be delighted to listen to a master teacher explain one of the greatest statements of Christian doctrine in all history? This is precisely what we have in Dr. R.C. Sproul's Truths We Confess. Few people have possessed his gift to make theology interesting, understandable, convincing, and delightful. And what better subject than the confession of faith that, for nearly four centuries, has inspired worshipers to adore the Holy One and missionaries to lay down their lives for the glory of Christ? In this book, we meet no mere philosophical concept of God, but the personal, living, holy God and His revealed will for our lives."
