Christianity is a religion with content, R.C. Sproul affirms in the preface to this work. Its truths are central to the life and practice of the church. He adds, It is necessary in every generation for the church to clarify its beliefs against constant attacks and distortions of her body of truth.
Few evangelical leaders in recent decades have contributed as much to our understanding of scriptural truth as has Dr. Sproul. For almost a biblical generation, the ministry of R. C. Sproul has been transforming the convictions of evangelicals, wrote Edmund Clowney, who described him as a morning star of a new reformation.
In keeping with his conviction that theology belongs to everyone, Sproul has written this highly readable commentary on the Westminster Confession of Faith. Each of the three volumes of this commentary includes the portions of the confession being discussed, chapter by chapter and section by section. Key confessional phrases are also highlighted in bold as Sproul explains their significance for our faith and practice.
This third (and final) volume, covering chapters 23-33 of the Confession, treats the civil magistrate, marriage and divorce, the church and communion of the saints, baptism and the Lord's Supper, church government, and final judgment and the afterlife. Also included are the Larger and Shorter Catechisms and indexes to the three volumes. Every discussion is geared toward bringing us to a deeper knowledge of and greater love for the truths of God's Word.
