What Is a Reformed Church?
Pastors of Reformed churches are often asked, "What is a Reformed church?" or "What do you mean by Reformed?" Few booklet-length answers are available. Stephen Smallman, author of Understanding the Faith, has provided a booklet that pastors and churches will find eminently useful. While teaching inquires classes, Smallman writes, "I got a sense of the kind of issues that are in peoples' minds as they struggle to understand and appreciate the core doctrines and traditions of the church." In What Is a Reformed Church? he treats historical roots and the doctrines of Scripture, divine sovereignty, the covenant, the law, the church, and the kingdom.
