From the Foreword
As these essays indicate, subscription, or form of adherence, to doctrinal standards has been debated since the founding of an American presbytery in the English colonies. It is the purpose of the following pages to present, clearly and concisely, historically and theologically, the case for what has come to be known as the “strict” or “full subscriptionist” position.
