Mike Allen's Endorsement of "Hold Fast the Faith."

This one is by my friend, and fellow EPC teaching elder, Rev. Dr. Michael Allen Ph.D. (By the way, Mike is one of the fastest rising scholars in the Reformed community; recently named the D. James Kennedy Chair of Systematic Theology at Knox Theological Seminary, the author of many fine books himself).

"In an age when confessions are often viewed as lifeless, many Christians and churches are rediscovering them as a lifeline. Even so, the church’s confessions are like a labyrinth, often unfamiliar and as yet unexplored. Pastor Matthew Everhard guides the uninitiated through the hallways and corridors of the Westminster Confession of Faith. His book is useful not only for introducing the lay of the land, but for showing what you should do in each room. Confessions are meant to spur on wonder, worship, and witness, and our guide helps us, time and again, to go deeper into the scriptures, to gaze upward to God, and to step out to our neighbors through the testimony of this confession.
– Michael Allen, Knox Theological Seminary, Fort Lauderdale, Florida
