Though I did not study it very deeply. This time I have taken the time to go through it with Sam Waldron which I though he did a very good job. Before beginning my study of the confession, through a brother I got into the subject of Baptist Covenant Theology, I got the work of Pascal Denault The Distinctiveness of Bapti It was a while back that I somehow came into contact I don’t remember how, maybe through James White?
Sometime later I got the recent Recovering a Covenantal Heritage volume.
I have been more and more interested in this stream of Reformed Theology. I first became baptistic simply through reading the New Testament and finding no evidence of any infant baptism.
I was baptized in the Armenian Church and was attending a Baptist church in Holland and was convinced that my baptism was no baptism, so on I was baptist after a profession of faith. At that time I was in the process of studying the Doctrines of Grace. Sometime later, by the grace of God I came to embrace and glory in them. The first and foremost thing that I love about this Confession is it’s high, high, high view of God’s sovereign freedom.
I love it and that is exactly how I believe that God is, the Sovereign King over every molecule. I love the fact of the Baptists’ deep commitment to the truth and the sole authority of the Bible and their appeal to the Bible. I could not really find any disagreements with the Confession, so I feel home in it and I’m not ashamed to identify myself as a Reformed Baptist.
What I loved about Dr Waldron’s work is his way of explaining the Confession and going through the biblical evidence as I have been reading Grudem, I would have loved it if Dr Waldron would cite portions of the passages that he was using as proof, rather most of the time, only references were given. When I started studying the Confession I didn’t realizes that a confession is actually a Systematic Theology! Dr Waldron explained things very well, I especially liked his extensive treatment of chapters 29 Of Baptism31 of the state of man after death and of the resurrection of the dead and 32 Of the last judgment.
There he interacted with the other side and provided some answers.

With the explanations he went also through more detail. During my study of the I left some comments about my thoughts on each paragraph that can be viewed here: One thing that was frustrating me, conresion the load of typos there. It’s not that I’m a grammar bautistta, but the quality of the work is so great that the multitude of the typos, wrong headings above pages pages, no spacing between words, wrong numeration really were the only downside, which could have been prevented.
Hopefully, they will update it in the future, otherwise we’ll just have to wait for Samuel Renihan’s exposition of the that is in progress! Jul 13, David Ee rated it it was ok. Disappointingly average exposition of what is otherwise a brilliant confession of faith. The opening essay on the use of confessions of faith is well worth the cost of the entire book, written by R.
My edition of this book as published by Evangelical Press is full of spelling mistakes and basic errors that any proof reader should have picked up dw random quote marks all over the place, the word modern constantly appearing as modem for example. The actual exposition was average, lacking f Disappointingly average exposition of what is otherwise a brilliant confession of faith.
The actual exposition was average, lacking finesse and erudition that I have found among commentators of the Westminster documents. The author did spend some time defining the LCF edits of the Westminster and Savoy pa which was helpful.
There was also a valuable section on the LCF treatment of the covenant of grace – a major departure of understanding from the WCF. There was an inexplicably long section on the penultimate chapter – the intermediary state – which I guess was something of a hobby horse of the author’s.
No other part of this exposition received such a detour. My advice – don’t ce buying this. In the mean time, purchase a commentary on the Westminster documents and then supplement it with additional writings on a reformed baptist perspective. I recommend ‘The Westminster Assembly: This volume is a mixed bag of helpfulness, gaps, misunderstanding, and confusion.
First a word about the format. Each chapter in the book covers one chapter in the confession. The complete text of the confession is included in each chapter, followed by an outline of the chapter, and finally the exposition.
The outlines are very helpful. I thought he did a good job with the exosicion and found cohfesion beneficial for following the train of thought of each chapter in the confession. Besides t This volume is a mixed bag of helpfulness, gaps, misunderstanding, and confusion. Besides the outlines, there were times when Waldron had incredibly insightful comments on certain passages.
In particular, I found his comments in chapters 11 justification, adoption, sanctification very helpful. At other times, I just really liked the turn of phrase he used to express an idea I may have read previously in another book. I used to get really annoyed at study bibles because when a really tough verse came up that seemed to be the one they just skipped over.
I felt a bit like that at times with this volume. Some of the chapters seemed batuista short or skimmed over important ideas. The chapter on the Trinity, a subject of utmost importance, one often misunderstood by the average church goer, and one of recent debate within evangelical circles, was probably the shortest chapter in the book and left me a bit disappointed. At other times expoeicion just skipped right over entire paragraphs in the confession without any exposition whatsoever, dealing with bautists one idea from an entire chapter.
Chapter 7 Of God’s Covenant is where my real problems with this volume come into view. On the very next page he expresses his view which is very similar to what the Westminster view actually is of one covenant of grace with multiple administrations. It is not uncommon for Reformed Baptists to hold bxutista view, and it is often bautistq the 20th Century Reformed Baptist view of the covenants.
Further, the only place Waldron mentions Federalism a more common view of covenant theology among Reformed Baptists in a lengthy footnote on page Given the prominence of this view among F Baptist scholars, I wish he would have dealt with it at greater length than merely dismissing it in this footnote.
But then on pagehe makes a few passing comments that seem to reflect the Federalism view that he so easily dismissed previously saying that he was “not ready to affirm it” and here he is apparently affirming it in contradiction to what he had previously affirmed regarding the covenants. The whole chapter left me confused as to exposlcion his view actually is.
I have studied this topic extensively over the last 15 years, having previously served as an elder in a PCA church and in more recent years embracing Federalism and serving in ARBCA churches. I can only imagine how confused this chapter would leave someone who came to it not understanding the various views and hoping for clarification. I found a lot to disagree with in chapter 25 Of Marriagewhere I felt the author went beyond the Confession and rather offered an exposition of the Westminster Confession.
The purposefully dropped all mention of divorce, which allows for various views, including a permanence view of marriage which is held by some Reformed Baptists including myself. Waldron bwutista holds to a permissive view of marriage, divorce, and remarriage, but he didn’t get it from the Confession and therefore I felt bautidta was out of place including this view with reference to the Westminster where the was silent.
But hey, it’s his book! I felt some of his comments in chapter 29 Of Baptism directly conflicted with his previous comments in chapter 28, particularly with regard to baptism being an individual rather than church ordinance, and who should rightly administer it. Given my disagreements with several of his conclusions, the general confusion surrounding them, and the hit or mis exposition of each paragraph, I would likely not recommend this work to someone who is new to the confession and looking for help understanding it.
This is unfortunate because I think a work like this could be helpful for such a purpose, but this one fails to hit that mark. I would recommend it for someone who is more studied and well read, who has some formed ideas of their own, and is simply looking for another pastor’s views on the confession.
In the end, I found myself disappointed overall, but really appreciative of chapters 11, 12, 13, and 31, which I thought were his best work. View all 3 comments. May 16, Robert Mckay rated it it was amazing.
To be a Calvinist Baptist – or, for that matter, to be calvinistic and baptistic without necessarily saying one is either a Calvinist or a Baptist – is to be at least somewhat familiar with the confession of faith which the Particular Baptists of England published in This was the confession which the Particular Baptists used for another years or so, and was the confession which Charles Spurgeon’s Metropolitan Tabernacle adopted, and republished.

For many years it was the Baptist confession of faith, until the principles of the General Arminian Baptists became prominent in Baptist life. Waldron, a Reformed Baptist pastor and theologian, has produced a wonderful explanation of it. The book originally appeared in to mark the th anniversary of the Confession; this edition has a copyright date of The general content is precisely what the title promises.
Waldron gives each chapter of the Confession a chapter in the book, and quotes that chapter of the Confession verbatim. There is then an outline of the chapter, following which he explains the meaning, and when appropriate the history, of that chapter and its assertions.
There isn’t anything new here as to substance for those who adhere to the doctrines of grace, but because Dr.
