‘It was with a deep sense of “finally” that I looked at this new work by Dr. Renihan. We have long needed this detailed and tabular comparison of the foundational documents of our Calvinistic Baptist heritage and their sources. This work reminds lovers of that heritage that those who drew up these documents saw themselves as part of a Calvinist International, “a broader Reformed community” as Renihan puts it. As such, this book will be vital in helping us, who are the heirs of the men who wrote these texts, know not only what we must affirm in this day of doctrinal confusion but also know whence we have come and who belongs to our extended family, as it were, within the great body of Christian believers. May it further these ends and the study of confessional theology among us Baptists, and thus ultimately help us to play a vital role in the invincible advance of God’s kingdom.’ –Dr. Michael A.G. Haykin
