The October Reformation Voice: Recovering the Reformed Confession

Is online.

Howard Sloan is Coordinating Secretary of the HRA and writes in the introduction to this month’s issue:

Blessings and peace to you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.  This month’s issue is themed “Recovering the Reformed Confession.”  This theme was inspired by the upcoming book of the same name by Dr. R. Scott Clark.  This issue includes a review  of that book. The reason for the existence of the HRA is the loss of Confessional identity and theology in churches that once held to the high standards contained in our cherished documents.  The articles contained in the pages to follow are intended to encourage us in the use of the Heidelberg Catechism as a tool in the retention and reclamation of Reformed faith and practice.  We ignore these documents designed to keep us from heresy and error at our own peril. 

We also discuss two very important methods of keeping our confessional identity strong: Catechetical preaching and Confirmation courses.  I realize that some of our readers are very familiar with these practices, while others are just rediscovering these lost gems.  I pray that these articles will be a source of encouragement and wisdom wherever you find yourself on that continuum.  Remember that our purpose is that we “contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.” (Jude 3).
