This would be a really helpful book for Presbyterian seminarians, elders-in-training, or anyone who wants to learn more about Reformed confessional theology.

Very important commentary on the WCF. Lots of helpful insights into some of the more obscure passages of the WCF. The treatise at the back of the book on the Presbyterial form of government was pretty good too.
