Produced by the Westminster Assembly for the great Parliament, this time-honored treasure of the faith bears striking resemblance to the Irish Articles, but is far abler, fuller, and superior to any of its predecessors, and gives proof that the Assembly was steadily dominated by its aim to state nothing therein which is not expressly taught in the Word of God, or derivable therefrom by good and necessary reference. Working thus it produced not only the most logical and most complete, but the most Biblical and the noblest creed ever yet published.
B.B. Warfield called the work of the Westminster divines "the finest fragrance of spiritual religion." He continues by adding that it is "the most thoroughly thought-out statement ever penned of the elements of evangelical religion." To this day, the Westminster Catechism is considered to be a thoughtful, concise work that will bring benefit to those who study the Word of God. This edition contains the American revision, which, in addition to other changes, removes portions of chapter XXV regarding the Pope.
This collection unlocks and downloads the files for three resources: the Confession, the Larger Catechism and the Shorter Catechism.
