Drawing on new primary source material, it considers the Assembly's theology in terms of the unfolding development of doctrine in the Reformed churches, in connection with the preceding and current events in English history, and locates it in relation to the catholic tradition of the western church. The book asks exactly what the divines meant at each stage of their task. At a time when claims are made that particular theologies represent historic Reformed doctrine, it is particularly important to grasp what this actually is. ??- New primary source material - looks at 'original intent' of the authors - doesn't get bogged down in minor distractions - applies important lessons for the confessional church today ??For those who revere the work of the Westminster Assembly, Prof. Letham's comprehensive study is a blessed gift. Making judicious use of primary sources recently made available, and avoiding anachronistic and misleading attempts to make the Assembly's work more "relevant" to our times, the author has positioned that work firmly and clearly in its own time, with the paradoxical result that the Assembly's debates and decisions come to life again and speak powerfully to us today. When you next study or teach the theology of the Westminster Assembly, this will be the first book you will turn to.
