Book Review: The Westminster Directory of Public Worship

The Westminster Directory of Public Worship (1645) discussed by Mark Dever & Sinclair Ferguson  By far the best part of this book was the section by Sinclair Ferguson explaining the position of the Puritans in regards to preaching and the history behind the writing of the Westminster Confessions and Directory.  I was amazed by how unbiblical and Roman Catholic much of the liturgy seemed.  The section on preaching was very helpful and insightful, but most of the rest of the Directory sees to have been a great improvement at the time but to need still greater improvement at this present time.  There is definitely a need for the church to be continually reforming.
