Item Description...
Overview
A revised edition with a new chapter on Justification. The Westminster Confession of Faith has been described as the fullest and most carefully constructed exposition of the Christian faith ever written. People are sometimes daunted by its size but it was always intended to be a practical summary of belief, one that ordinary people could apply to their daily lives. The ideal person to open up this treasure to the church today is Donald Macleod, one of the finest theologians alive and Principal of a Presbyterian college that has the Confession at its heart.

Practical and Accessible Explanation of Theology  Apr 21, 2008
My youth minister stormed into my office a week after I gave him this book yelling: "why didn't I know about books like this in seminary? I actually understood everything he said and everything was practical." Need I say more?
 
A good popular Systematic Theology  Apr 17, 2005
Review by Rev. George van Popta

This book began as two series of lectures that Professor Macleod, a Free Church of Scotland theologian, delivered. Professor Macleod has an impressive gift for making the complex simple. In twenty-six chapters he deals admirably with most of the main and sub points of dogmatics from scripture and the Trinity to hell and heaven. The confessionally Reformed reader will appreciate the chapters and benefit greatly.

One might want to put some question marks in the margins of the chapter on creation where he is not hostile to the thought of the universe being thousands of millions of years old. He suggests we might do well to interpret the six days as creation eras rather than days as we know them. He does, however, reject Darwinism.

One may not agree with every thought or turn of phrase, but there is much to be learned and gained from reading this popular exposition of the points of theology. One can only admire Macleod's facility as a teacher.

 
A Must Read  Dec 15, 2004
This is THE place to start for an overview of Christian Theology. Macleod is clear and to the point. He covers the main doctrines of Christianity thoroughly yet in concisely. He is not content to give simplistic answers and plums the depths of the Scriptures to arrive at a thoroughly biblical position.

This book would be a good place to start for anyone looking for a first read on theology, yet it will also give profound insight to the experienced student of theology.
 
Excellent!  Jul 25, 2001
Excellent book by a excellent author! clear and concise....
 
Superb Summary of the Reformed Faith  May 29, 2000
This is the best summary of the Reformed Christian faith that any student of divinity can get hold of. It should be required reading for every pastor.

A Faith to Live By is a short systematic theology, particularly attractive for the christian layman or laywoman. It covers the doctrines of God, Man, Sin, Salvation, Christian Discipleship and the Second Coming.

Professor Macleod is the master of his subject. He is consistently lucid, succint and pastoral. Like all truly learned man, he admits uncertainty, but maintains tolerance of opposing views, where the Bible is silent.

This book is unadulterated reformed theology at its Scottish best. It makes none of the compromises that modern American presbyterianism tends to make vis a vis the Westminster Confession of Faith.

In every sense, a superb book and highly recommended. Having read it through twice, I envy those who must be studying under Macleod.
