This book is useful to explore the doctrine of the assurance of faith in the reformed tradition. There was no uniformity among the reformed concerning this doctrine, but there was consistency from Calvin up to the Westminster Assembly. I have read this book to prepare a series of sermons on the assurance of faith and I have found a lot of material in it. Though it is a bit technical at some points, it is also very rich.
