The Reformed Apprentice

The Reformed Apprentice: A Workbook on Reformed Theology, 2nd Edition by C. Matthew McMahon

The LINK HERE will allow you to get a printed copy (and there are discounts on bulk copies for Sunday School and Bible studies).

There is nothing like this interactive workbook anywhere in the Reformed community. It is a unique workbook designed to bring Reformed Theology to students of the bible in its various facets. In old England, an apprentice is a novice who engaged in a covenant with a tradesman to learn a particular trade. A workbook of this kind was created to engage the student of scripture to be apprenticed under the teachers of Reformed Theology, thus, a Reformed Apprentice.

The purpose of the workbook is to come into a deeper knowledge and relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ as he has revealed himself to the church in his Word and by his Spirit through the centuries in Reformed Theology. The workbook covers logic, hermeneutics, theology, creeds and confessions, covenant theology, worship, the sovereignty of God, the solas of the reformation, the doctrines of grace, church government, and much, much more. It extensively quotes the early church fathers, the Reformers, the Puritans, and Reformed theologians from various ages in order to aid the Reformed Apprentice in coming to a knowledge of what truly constitutes Reformed Theology and the Reformed Faith.

Currently, there are four volumes to this workbook series. See them all here.

Series of Books on Biblical Worship

Does your church honor God in its public worship? Forbes explains 1 Timothy 3:13-16 to reformed churches that claim to uphold true worship, but may be missing the mark. An amazing and powerful work for today’s contemporary church.
Does the Regulative Principle only apply to public worship and not private worship? John Jackson shows how God’s word is to be applied in both private and public worship. (This book is not for the faint at heart!)
This classic work by Burroughs deals with the Regulative Principle: God alone determines the manner in which sinners approach him. This is a life-transforming and Christ-glorifying biblical work.
Knox’s treatise on True and False Worship demonstrates the inescapable consequence to consider whether you are worshipping God in the vanity of your own mind, or engaging in true worship.
Charnock tackles John 4:24 and shows how true worship is dictated by the Supreme Lawgiver, Jesus Christ. Annexed to this work is Jonathan Clapham’s excellent treatise on singing psalms.
Is the preacher doing what he is supposed to in his preaching in order for you to do what you are commanded to do in your duty to hear the word of God rightly?
John Owen’s work on both worship and psalm singing shows theological precision and hearty biblical exposition. Edward Hutchins on psalmody is nothing less than extraordinary.
Jesus Christ was very clear in John 4:24 about true worship. Wilson explains what it means to make worship not only simple, but according to God’s directives.
