Zeal

This article was written by Rev.

Knowing God & Man by Herman Hoeksema

Knowing God & Man by Herman Hoeksema

“The key to understanding Reformed doctrine, and certainly the theology of Rev. Herman Hoeksema, is found in the title of the first chapter in this book: “God is God.” . . .Each chapter on God directs the reader’s attention to a different biblical aspect of the sovereign of the universe: God as God, as creator, as Lord, as good, as the living God, and as love. The seven chapters about man open the biblical teaching about a subject often misinterpreted today....
