Item Description...
For those who admire the confessional statements (of the Westminster Assembly) but know little of thier origins, this is a wonderful introductory volume. The diversity of the assembly participants with their immense commonalities is amazing. Also of interest are the enormous energy involved in the debates, the particiants' struggles to understand the Bible, and their freedom to vent disagreement at high decibels while maintaining a spirit of unity. The book is well organized and presented in an effective format.

Publishers Description
The history of seventeenth century England was tumultuous. During this period England underwent a civil war, a regicide, an experiment with republican government, a restoration of monarchy and constant upheavals in politics and religion. What a confusing period As the century began Puritans were poised against Episcopalians, parliament against the forces of an absolutist monarchy and the question hung in the air - what kind of Christian expression would be the Church of England eventually reflect?

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Gives the Heritage a Human Face  Mar 25, 2001
The Westminster Confession has a lively reputation -- it is either loved or hated, depending on your theology. Everyone knows it is about the most influential work of its kind ever produced in the English language. But few people know anything about the men who composed it. This is the only book I know of that has composed biographical portraits of the Westminster Divines. What Dr. Barker so well illustrates is that these were a diverse group of churchmen, with different temperments and experiences. They were united by a common commitment to the Word and the threat of royal execution for their participation.

Dr. Barker is a gifted historian and writer. He really makes these heroic figures come to life.

This book will stir your heart and your head.
Outstanding!  Feb 26, 2001
Will Barker has done the church a great favor by writing this book. Many in the Reformed-Presbyterian tradition know and love the Westminster Confession of Faith, but few know anything about the men that God used to write it. A fascinating work that is not only good history, but is devotional too. You see a diverse, yet Godly group of men brought together in extraordinary times, to create one of the greatest (human) confessions ever written. The 54 men profiled are divided into sections such as "The Officers of the Assembly", "The Episcopalians", "The Erastians", "The Independents", "The Scots", "Noted Preachers", "Notable Scholars", "London Clergy", and "The New Englanders". The profiles themselves are brief, yet give you a clear feeling that you know the man who was profiled. For anyone who loves church history, or loves the Reformed faith, this is the book for you!
