Pastors of Reformed churches are often asked, "What is a Reformed church?" or "What do you mean by Reformed?" Few booklet-length answers are available. Stephen Smallman, author of Understanding the Faith, has provided a booklet that pastors and churches will find eminently useful. While teaching inquires classes, Smallman writes, "I got a sense of the kind of issues that are in peoples' minds as they struggle to understand and appreciate the core doctrines and traditions of the church." In What Is a Reformed Church? he treats historical roots and the doctrines of Scripture, divine sovereignty, the covenant, the law, the church, and the kingdom.
An introduction to the Reformed view of Scripture, divine sovereignty, the covenant of grace, the law of God, the church, and the kingdom of God.
