The Westminster Confession of Faith is a Reformed confession of faith, in the Calvinist theological tradition. In 1643, the English Parliament called upon "learned, godly and judicious Divines", to meet at Westminster Abbey in order to provide advice on issues of worship, doctrine, government and discipline of the Church of England. Their meetings, over a period of five years, produced the confession of faith, as well as a Larger Catechism and a Shorter Catechism. For more than three centuries, various churches around the world have adopted the confession and the catechisms as their standards of doctrine, subordinate to the Bible.

Critique of the edition.
This edition is marred by some typographic errors. The presence of obvious errors, some of which affect the meaning of the text, leads one to wonder what other undetected errors there might be, having a similar result. Since this is a document about spiritual faith, and is relied on by many for guidance in their own faith, that concern is far more important than it would be for a less significant document.
