Weeks beautifully writes an approachable and comprehensive introduction to Presbyterianism (Presbyterian Church U.S.A.) and the Reformed faith that would be a great read for officer training, studying for ordination exams, or for interested laity. This is a must read for those interested in the history or beliefs of Presbyterians.
