below is an announcement (from the March 2008 issue of the Northwest Theological Seminary newsletter) concerning James T. Dennison, Jr.'s forthcoming The Reformed Confessions of the 16th and 17th Centuries in English Translation: 1523-1552.

REFORMED CONFESSIONS PROJECT, VOLUME 1, AT THE PUBLISHER

For the past 5 years, Jim Dennison has been collecting Reformed confessions from the 16th and 17th centuries. These documents originate in many nations (Switzerland, Germany, Holland, England, Scotland, France, Hungary, Transylvania, Poland, Brazil, America) and are written in many languages (German, Latin, French, English, Dutch, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Magyar, Portuguese). More than 125 confessional documents have been gathered and will be printed, in English, in a multi-volume set. Volume 1, entitled The Reformed Confessions of the 16th and 17th Centuries in English Translation: 1523-1552 will include 34 confessions beginning with Ulrich Zwingli's 67 Articles and concluding with John Calvin's Consensus Genevenis or "On the Eternal Predestination of God". In between will be the first English translation of the Bern Synod (1532), Juan Diaz's Summary of the Christian Religion (1546) and the Rhaetian Confession (1552). Also included in this initial volume will be the Confession of the East Friesland Preachers (1528), the 1st Confession of Basel (1534), the 1st Helvetic Confession (1536), all of Calvin's Catechisms (1537, 1538, 1541/45), the Confession of the London Congregation of John a Lasco (1551), the Confession of the Refugee Congregation Vallerand Poullain at Glastonbury England (1551), the Emden Catechism (1551) and many others. The Reformed Confessions project is being published by Reformation Heritage Publications of Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I have no doubt that this would be a fascinating evening for anyone who is able to go! If you live nearby I would highly encourage you to attend.

I would love to be there -- and it is within easy driving distance. However, we have a Reformation Day event scheduled for that evening. Nonetheless, I am very much looking forward to getting this book.

These three volumes will be amazing. I plan to get all three, which will be a big step up from my current Creeds of Christendom by Schaff that I've been working off! Any (rough) ideas when the second and third volumes will come out?

I picked my copy up at their bookstore in Grand Rapids yesterday. It is a great.
I am particularly impressed by the 1551 London Confession of John A Lasco

So it seems to be available to ship today from monergismbooks.com, but I haven't heard anything from RHB directly on my pre-order of the book from them. Anyone know more?

RHB now says: "In stock and shipping now!"

Anybody with additional info on the Ames work?

RHB says that it is not even at the printer yet, it should be available in about another month or so (they plan to update the website accordingly).
