The Cure of Souls: Recovering the Biblical Doctrine of Confession
Ross House Books 2007
Hypocrisy replaces virtue when people try to cover their sins rather than confess them to God. This is all too common when the biblical doctrine of confession is not preached or practiced. In The Cure of Souls, Rousas John Rushdoony examines the biblical teaching on confession and explaining the errors of Romanism and the neo-Freudianism of modern Christian counseling. Aiming to restore the meaning of confession as taught in the Scriptures, Rushdoony maintains that as long as confession is seen as a Romanist doctrine, we have no hope of recovering this vital aspect of Christianity.
The Cure of Souls is remarkably readable, and sure to empower both clergy and laity as they discover the powerful tool of biblical confession.
