This book is very good at presenting a thorough explanation of each of the section of the Westminster confession. The language and style are somewhat academic but pleasant and there are extensive questions at the end of each chapter if you like to insure you have really grasped the material. The book essentially presents the confession chapter by section with Hodge's commentary presented after each section. I found the physical book a very pleasant read and would praise Hodge for where things ar ...more

This is a great book to read to get a better understanding of the Westminster Confession of Faith. Each section of the Confession is discussed and there are many additional scripture references included, in addition to those "scripture proofs" attached to the Confession itself.

Best commentary on the Westminster confession of faith! Clear and organised, insightful and beautifully written – always like the way the author is able to phrase concepts in the most simple yet sophisticated way. A must-read for theological students!

Great explanation of each section of the westminster confession. Moreover, it gives a deep basis for fundamental Christian beliefs. Christians should read at least the confession itself...it helps us to understand more the history of redemption.

This was a wonderful way to walk through the Westminster Confession. Hodge has a great manner of presenting this material, with depth, insight and plenty of rich spiritual nuggets wedged between the cumbersome boulders of doctrine. Highly recommended...but not for bedtime...

“The Limit of this obligation to obedience [to the civil government] will be found only when we are commanded to do something contrary to the to the superior authority of God (Acts iv. 19; v. 29); or when the civil government has become so radically and incurably corrupt that it has ceased to accomplish the ends for which it was established. When that point has unquestionably been reached, when all means of redress have been exhausted without avail, when there appears no prospect of securing reform in the government itself, and some good prospect of securing it by revolution, then it is the privilege and duty of a Christian people to change their government - peacefully if they may, forcibly if they must.” 3 likes
