In this extensive exposition, the author, Sam Waldron, shows that the '1689' Confession is a masterly statement of the historic Christian faith. He writes in a direct and lucid style that will help ministers, students and laymen alike to a clear understanding of this Confession and to its relevance and application to our modern age. This exposition was originally published in 1989 to mark the 300th anniversary of the publication of the Second London Confession, which also became known as the '1689 Baptist Confession of Faith'.
Today, reformed Baptists world-wide hold this Confession in high esteem and many churches continue to regard it as their official statement of faith. After being one of the pastors of the Reformed Baptist Church of Grand Rapids for almost 24 years, Sam Waldron is now attending Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky where in May of 2005 he will complete a Ph. D. in Systematic Theology. With his wife, he is a member of Heritage Baptist Church, a Reformed Baptist Church in Owensboro, Kentucky where in January 2005 he became one of the pastors.

Review 1 for Modern Exposition Of 1689 Baptist Confession Of Faith
I originally purchased a copy of the Second London Confession of Faith 1689 and read it, it hooked me so when I saw this book with a modern Exposition I ordered it and believe me I was not disappointed. It is clear and just a gem for scholar and layman alike.

Location:Maple Ridge, Canada
Sam Waldron rightly expounds the puritans 1689 Confession with extensive insight. His comments on baptism and the elements and on the person of Christ, his deity and his true humanity, are without parallel. In this section, Waldron brings to the practical mind that Jesus possessed a human body with a human soul, which displayed real emotions. Yet, He was not just man but the God-man who suffered to conquer sin and death on our behalf. In this he brings to the heart the reality of faith needed in Christ alone to save sinners from an eternity of hell and suffering.
