Covenanted Uniformity in Religion

Full Product Description

It is a common view that the Westminster Assembly was dominated by Scots pursuing their nationalistic goals to the disadvantage of a desperate English Parliament. But in Covenanted Uniformity in Religion, Wayne R. Spear reassesses the Assembly from the standpoint of the Scottish commissioners and their influence in the drawing up of the Form of Church Government.

Spear begins by placing the Assembly in its historical setting and giving an overview of how it conducted its business. Then, following the order of the Form of Church Government, he traces each significant expression from its origin in a committee, through its debate and modification in the Assembly, to its final placement in the document. Finally, Spear evaluates the significance of this document by considering the responses it received in England and Scotland.Here we see how the Scots failed to achieve some of their most cherished goals in the Assembly debates, which demonstrates that the Assembly operated as a truly deliberative body.

This book gives us a more accurate picture of the Westminster Assembly as it debated the proper structure and function of the Christian church.

Covenanted Uniformity in Religion by Spear, Wayne R. is published by Reformation Heritage Books. The ISBN for Covenanted Uniformity in Religion is 9781601782441.
