“The Three Forms of Unity are simply seeking to set forth the Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ in all its beauty, and the various implications of the Gospel for human thought and life. Anyone expecting to find a dry, abstract, narrow-spirited, over-complicated Calvinist “scholasticism” will be greatly disappointed.” ~from Dr. Nick Needham's Introduction
Christianity is not a religion built on stuffy, intellectual doctrines, but on the kinds of truths that men are willing to die for. First collected by Reformed Protestants in the 1600s, the Three Forms of Unity contains the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort. These confessions are a beautiful summary of the deep truths of Scripture concerning God, our salvation, and the church.
“What is thy only comfort in life and in death? That I, with body and soul, both in life and in death, am not my own, but belong to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ, who with His precious blood has fully satisfied for all my sins, and redeemed me from all the power of the devil; and so preserves me, that without the will of my Father in heaven not a hair can fall from my head; yea, that all things must work together for my salvation.” ~The First Question of the Heidelberg Catechism
THE CHRISTIAN HERITAGE SERIES: The authors in the Christian Heritage Series paid a high price for the words you see before you. Not all paid with blood, but each spent his life fighting for the truth. This faithful sacrifice has become a rich inheritance for the Church in our day, even though it is often neglected. The Christian Heritage Series aims to put these important theological classics on every Christian’s bookshelf in colorful, well-crafted, and affordable volumes, with introductions written by those that love the books and their heritage.

I've slowly begun reading through the Three Forms of Unity alongside my daily reading of scripture to help my mind think of scripture and theology in light of the historic Protestant understanding of such things. Needham's introduction especially prompted me to be encouraged from reading what faithful Christians centuries ago have written on the Scriptures and their theology. A great purchase - no regrets!
Confessions, which state our biblical beliefs, are an important piece to Christian faith,
A small book that everyone should be reading!! If you're new to Reformed Theology, this is a fantastic primer to read!!
