In Contending for the Faith, Joel Beeke and William Boekestein help children understand the struggle for reformation in England and how the Westminster Assembly sought to further the Reformation in that land. In this book, children will learn about the five documents that became key standards of Presbyterianism: the Form of Church Government, the Directory of Public Worship, the Confession of Faith, the Larger Catechism, and the Shorter Catechism.
Although these reforms did not find a lasting place within the Church of England, they have remained formative for Presbyterian and Reformed congregations around the world.
