I have just read the interview with Carl Trueman,and was struck by the comment "With no catechisms and confessions of any depth, you
have few resources left in the face of a rising tide of theological
illiteracy which leaves the way open for all manner of
weird and wonderful stuff to fill the resulting vacuum". I found this interesting being a member of a church-Baptist-that does not use the confessions/creeds/catechisms,as they like to refer to themselves as being Bible based and see the confessions as perhaps just necessary for the reformation period. Not even the London Baptist Confession is referred to .what a rich treasure trove we are missing out on . the Belgic Confession-can you remove the reference to the AnaBaptists now please-,the Westminister Confession of faith,the Heidelberg Catechism and of course the Lutheran and AnaBaptist Confessions ,are ample teaching tools for the study of Scripture. So my task is to purchase copies of the confessions-cheaply-to read them and to talk about them in my Bible Study group. now that would be interesting.

Wayne - Let me add to that from my (recently and not happily concluded) stint as pastor of a Baptist church: I endeavored to use the Heidelberg Catechism (G.I. Williamson's study guide) as a study tool, accepting that we would differ when we got to the sections on baptism, only to be countered with arguments about "Baptist distinctives" (those are local and individual preferences elevated to the status of theology IMHO). Being a Reformed / Calvinistic Baptist ain't easy - sometimes even here on the Riddleblog (s'ok, Pastor Kim, we still love you!).

This book is on my "Wish List", as I have a few book in hand that yet need to be read.

Considering the issue of confessions and Baptists, having recently moved to a solid reformed Baptist church that uses the 1689 London Baptist Confession and has a catechism as part of the Sunday service, I can tell you there are some SBC churches that hold to the reformed doctrines AND catechisms that help teach God's Truths.

Let it be the aim of everyone who claims the name of Christ to live in obedience and proclaim the cross.

I still haven't read my copy of Man of Sin--should I still buy this book?

I must say I am tempted--it sounds very interesting.
