Much of what passes as Reformed among our churches is not. As a class of churches that profess allegiance to Reformed theology, practice, and piety, we have drifted from our moorings. This book is written to facilitate change, specifically reformation according to God’s Word as summarized in the Reformed confessions.


"While I am enthusiastic about what has been called the 'young Reformed awakening,' we still await a renaissance of genuinely confessional Reformed theology, piety, and practice. Scott Clark's historical work, diagnosis and critique, and constructive recommendations are all worth rigorous and respectful engagement. I welcome this robust entry into the discussion of what it means for us to be confessional and Reformed in the twenty-first century."

J. Ligon Duncan III

"At a time when 'all that is solid melts in the air' and distinct colors fade to grey, R. Scott Clark reminds us of the loveliness, depth, and richness of Reformed Christianity. Not only TULIP, but a confession that bears fruit in both faith and practice, the account that you will find in this book may challenge, but its point is not to be missed."

Michael Horton
