Where do I start with Reformed Theology?

This past Sunday, I began preaching on the distinctions of Veritas - trying to answer the question "What is different (not better) about Veritas Church?"  The first distinction had to do with our theological convictions:

Veritas holds to reformed theology.  By this, we mean that we generally agree with the theology that was recovered in the 16th and 17th centuries during the Protestant Reformation – we believe the reformers had it right, and recovered the theology of men like Augustine, the Apostle Paul, and Jesus.

Some of you are new to reformed theology and so I promised to post some resources to get you started:

  • If you're struggling to understand the 1689 confession, but want to, buy Samuel Waldron's commentary.
  • If you're looking for a good, historical, reformed catechism (summary of theological beliefs in question and answer format) check out the Heidelberg Catechism.
  • If you're looking for a book that will be a great primer on reformed theology, purchase R.C. Sproul's "What is Reformed Theology."
  • And finally, the best website to find articles and books that will answer your questions biblically is, in my opinion, Monergism.
