Easy to read translation, though not the most accurate in places. . .  May 1, 2007
Like the NIV Bible, this version of the Three Forms of Unity is very easy to read, yet a little bit weak on translation. This should not, however, be grounds for not purchasing it. When I am teaching catechism to HS students, I teach out of this booklet even though I study and correct with more "literal equivalet" translations like those found in Schaff's "Creeds of Christendom."

For example, certain terms like "satisfaction" and "propitiate" tend to be lacking in this version (especially in the Heidelberg Catechism). While it is not techincally incorrect to say "[Christ] has fully PAID for all my sins with his precious blood" (this version of HC, Q.1), it is a bit more accurate to say along with other versions, "Who with his [Christ's] precious blood has fully SATISFIED for all my sins. . ." (Schaff, II.307-308). The word "satisfied" brings out the forensic nature of Christ's Cross-work that "paid for" seems to overlook.

This wording criticism aside, this is a helpful collection. The reader will especially find this version of the Canons of Dort helpful as the Remonstrant errors are offset with grey highlighting. This makes teaching from the Canons quite easy. I have used this version a lot over the past 10 years or so and will continue to do so. Readers, however, should be sure to compare this TRANSLATION of the Three Forms of Unity with others to be as accurate as possible. Don't forget to compliment this purchase with the Commentary of Dr. Zacharias Ursinus on the Heidelberg Catechism.
Strongly Recommended  Mar 30, 2005
This is a great resource for any Christian, particularly those who are Reformed. Although I have been a Christian for around a decade and a half, I still learned quite a bit from this book; this book is helpful whether you know a lot or little about Christianity. It is helpful even when it says stuff that I already knew because as Christians - particularly after being a Christian for a long time - it can be easy to "get away from" the basics of your faith. It also answers interesting questions such as "if Jesus paid for our sins, why do we still have to die?" and "was it important that Jesus was crucified rather than killed in some other way?" I like how they justify their answers from Scripture. This book made me think even in cases where I didn't agree with the book.
Great resource for historic christian faith!  Dec 21, 1998
Great resource to have for studying the historic beliefs of the christian church. My wife and I have used it, also, for "devotions," reading a short section together before we go to bed. Books contains the Apostle's Creed, Nicene Creed, Athanasian Creed, Heidelburg Catechism, Belgic Confession, and the Canons of Dort. A brief history of each one is also given. It's helpful to have all of these resources in one book, and they are easy to read. Hard to find book, so buy it now, if available!
