By Dr. Kenneth G. Talbot
In Confirming Our Faith, Dr. Ken Talbot provides a clear, careful, and crucial study of Reformed sacramental theology as a response to the growing “Federal Vision” movement. Tragically, few today understand what all is at stake in the current debate. Though recent history has witnessed a resurgence of Reformation theology, ignorance of the sacraments has become a weak link in the Reformed Christian’s ecclesiastical faith and practice. Because of this we are witnessing an all out assault on numerous biblical and Reformed doctrines of federal theology, including the covenant of grace, the visible church, the imputation of Christ’s righteousness, and even justification by faith alone. If a new examination of the sacraments is not called for in its own right, surely it is vital to the current debates between historic federal theology and this new threat called the “Federal Vision.” What is needed and what the author provides is Federal Theology, not “Federal Vision.” A proper “vision” is found not in the current fads of sacerdotalism but in the infallible Word.
