The Three Forms of Unity are the historic creeds of the Reformed churches developed during the sixteenth century Protestant Reformation. These are especially associated with those of the Dutch Reformed tradition, and comprise the theme of the April 2008 issue of Tabletalk. In an effort to help our readers learn more about these creeds, this issue will focus on the historical occasions and main point and purpose of each of the Three Forms. This issue must not, however, read like a scholarly treatise on historical theology. While we do wish to heighten the church’s awareness on these important creeds, we desire to do it through a careful, yet approachable, analysis of the Three Forms as well as to encourage believers to incorporate them into their life and worship.
