John Dow, This is Our Faith (1943)

Page history last edited by Michael Bourgeois 14 years, 7 months ago


From preface to "This is Our Faith." 


This book offers a survey of the main doctrines of the Church.  It was prepared to give fuller exposition to a short Statement of Faith presented to the Ninth General Council of The United Church of Canada in 1940.  The line followed is Biblical throughout.  I have endeavoured to reflect the views of the Commission which drew up the Statement; but, as I was left with complete freedom of interpretation, I must accept responsibility for what is here written.  This is a task from which I shrank at first and finally accepted in the hope that in this way I might make some slight return for the generosity and friendliness of the ministers, laymen, and  young people of the Church in which I serve.
