“The Death of a Church” is a thorough analysis of the new Confession of Faith of 1967 adopted by the Presbyterian Church in the USA to replace the Westminster standards. Although every attempt was made to couch its doctrines in traditional terminology, a careful analysis of its statements, especially as compared with the original, The Westminster Confession of Faith, reveals the extent of the apostasy in the church. Dr. McIntire, the most persistent and relentless opponent of theological liberalism throughout the twentieth century, does not pull any punches in his expose of the new faith of what was once a glorious church. If one has ever wondered what the end of the road is of theological liberalism and theological compromise, this book documents it. When the Lord’s people leave and the testimony of the Scriptures is silenced; when the spirit of the age, conformity to this present world, and political correctness take over; the end result is what Dr. McIntire so thoroughly uncovers.
