I have read the creeds of most Christian bodies.  I have been rejoiced at the general harmony of Protestant Christendom in the great doctrines of the gospel.  But I know of no uninspired production, in any language or of any denomination that, for richness of matter, clearness of statement, soundness of doctrine, scriptural expression, and edifying tendency can, for a moment, enter into competition with the Westminster Confession and Catechisms.  It was a noble body of divines, called by a noble body of statesmen, that composed them, and there they stand – and will stand forever – the monuments alike of religious truth and civil freedom. – James Henley Thornwell (1812-1862)
