An Exploration of the Christian Faith by Daniel R. Hyde

From monergismbooks.com:

Description: Today, too many Christians are followers of novelty, religious fads, and strange new doctrines unheard of in the history of the church. On the contrary, to be a Christian is to join the great “cloud of witnesses” (Heb 12:1) through the ages, confessing with the Body of Christ the “faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). This is what Paul called the “good confession” (1 Tim 6:12). This workbook will lead you in a study of what it means to be a Christian from the vantage point of the Bible, the ancient Christian creeds, and the Protestant confessions of the sixteenth century.

“Rev. Hyde has done us a service by covering the standards of the Reformed churches and applying them to prospective church members. As any church planter knows, the issue of church membership is a difficult one in our day. Churches either do not have formal membership or people are accepted too quickly into membership without sufficient exposure to what the church believes or how the church functions. This book addresses and remedies this situation.”

“Rev. Hyde’s book is a welcomed resource. I have found in my own experience that Reformed churches are not clear about what is required for members to believe. ‘The Good Confession’ helps Reformed churches to alleviate this problem by making the Gospel clear and communicating what Christ requires of his people in joining his church.”

“Reformed pastors are always looking for a good curriculum to use with new Christians and inquirers that is solidly Reformed, yet which does not major on the minors. ‘The Good Confession’ is a well-balanced book that will help us instruct all those inquiring about our doctrine.”
— Dr. Kim Riddlebarger, Christ Reformed Church, Anaheim, CA
