Dr. Wes Bredenhof review

Aaron Cleveland review

Prof. David Engelsma review

Dr. Eugene Heideman review

Rev. E. T. Kirkland review

Rev. Cornelius Pronk

Rev. Clayton Spronk review

Rev. Pieter VanderMeyden review

The author’s narrative recounts the reformation of the church in 1834, when Hendrik de Cock witnessed against the false doctrines and unspiritual character of the state Reformed church of the Netherlands. After having been unceremoniously suspended and deposed from office, he led his congregation to return to the biblical worship of God in Christ Jesus as set forth in the Reformed creeds, which represents the faith of God’s saints throughout the ages. His witness has inspired the witness of hundreds of thousands of people throughout the world until this day.

This book therefore recounts one man’s struggle against the perversions of scripture by the vast majority of ordained pastors in the state Reformed church with its million or more spiritually sleeping members. Contra mundum was the character of this struggle for the truth. De Cock’s witness therefore was a trumpet blast in the night of spiritual darkness that awakened God’s people at the morn of a new day, while at the same time it angered and galvanized the unfaithful ecclesiastical administrators in opposition. De Cock gave witness to the sole authority of sacred scripture and to the binding authority of the Reformed creeds, which for Reformed believers is derived from the binding authority of the Bible.

    Contending for the Faith: The Rise of Heresy and the Development of the Truth

    Club Price $8.69

    $8.69

     Click PDF icon to look inside the book.

    Contending for the Faith presents the history of heretics that have troubled the church over the last two thousand years, treating errors from AD 100 (Marcion) to the present day (federal vision theology). What sets this book apart is its evaluation of every heresy from a consistently and unashamedly Reformed perspective. The reader will readily grasp the significance of the early heretics as Herman Hanko demonstrates the connection between their heresies and the errors arising later in history. The vibrant writing style brings the heretics—ancient and modern—to life. This trustworthy guide to the heretics equips believers today to "contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" (Jude 1:3).

    Contending for the Faith is a companion volume to Hanko's Portraits of Faithful Saints, a book of short biographies of the defenders of the truth from as far back as AD 100.

            Corrupting the Word of God: The History of the Well-meant offer

            Club Price $16.22

            $24.95

             Click PDF icon to look inside the book.

            Does the eternal, unchangeable, all-powerful, and sovereign God really have a temporal, changeable and weak desire to save those whom he has unconditionally reprobated (Rom. 9:22), for whom the Son did not die (John 12:31) and whom the Holy Spirit will not regenerate, sanctify or glorify (John 3:8)?

            Pelagianism, semi-Pelagianism, Roman Catholicism, Lutheranism, Anabaptism, Arminianism, Amyraldism, and Marrowism say yes to the well-meant offer of the gospel. The biblical, Augustinian, Reformed, and creedal position is no!

            Emeritus professor of church history, Herman Hanko, guides us through fascinating doctrinal controversies in the early, Reformation and modern eras of the church, taking us to North Africa, Switzerland, France, England, Scotland, the Netherlands, and America, and emphasizing the teaching of the great theologians, such as Augustine and John Calvin, on God’s particular grace, which is always irresistible and never fails or is frustrated.

            In dealing with the historical perspective of God's absolutely sovereign grace versus the well-meant offer, this book fills a gap in the literature, and does so in a way that is warm and easily understood.

            Covenant and Election in the Reformed Tradition

            Club Price $18.82

            $28.95

            Covenant and election are two of the most prominent and most important truths in Scripture. They run through the Bible like two grand, harmonious themes in symphony. These two doctrines and their relation are the twofold subject of this book.

            The author illumines covenant and election from the controversial history of the confession of the teachings and their relation to the Reformed tradition—from John Calvin in the sixteenth-century through the fathers of the Secession churches in the nineteenth-century Netherlands to the twentieth-century theologians Herman Bavinck and Herman Hoeksema.

            Gottschalk, Servant of God: A Story of Courage, Faith, and Love for the Truth

            Club Price $25.97

            $0.00

            Click the PDF for the FREE bonus material. 

            *This bonus material will be emailed to you as a downloadable pdf file if you proceed through the checkout process.

            The material includes Gottschalk's Shorter ConfessionLonger Confession and Extant Fragments.

            Although Gottschalk’s Longer Confession was composed in prison as an explanation of his beliefs regarding the doctrines of predestination and sovereign grace over against those who taught differently, the Longer Confession is also written in the form of a prayer to God. This might seem surprising. Gottschalk’s intention was indeed to explain, defend, and prove these doctrines that he loved so much, but that also explains why he would write these things in the form of a prayer. His deep love for the truth was at the same time a deep love for God, and prayer is the chief means by which one directly expresses such love. Thus, Gottschalk’s Longer Confession became the profoundly devotional piece of writing that it is.

            As with all of Gottschalk’s work, he wrote the original document in Latin. The English translations of the Longer Confession and the Extant Fragments are by Ronald Hanko and are used with his permission.

              Jake Dykstra

              Derrick Span

              In 1618-19 the great Synod of Dordt met to counter the Arminian error that was threatening the peace and welfare of the Reformed churches in the Netherlands. The fruit of their deliberations was the Canons of Dordt, a creed which has defined the Calvinist, Reformed faith for centuries.

              This accessible commentary on the Canons leads readers through the comforting message of the creed: being wholly saved by God’s grace—not one’s own merit—comes with the steadfast assurance of eternal and unchangeable election.

              Tang Jee Fung review (published in the Salt Shakers magazine)

              Less Than the Least is the memoirs of Rev. Cornelius Hanko’s long, fruitful life of nearly a century (1907–2005). He lived through two world wars, the Great Depression, the Korean and Vietnam Wars, the rise and fall of communism, and the advent of the space age, and spanned the terms of eighteen US presidents, from Theodore Roosevelt to George W. Bush.

              Son of Dutch immigrants to America, Rev. Hanko served six pastorates in five states, most notably in First Protestant Reformed Church, Grand Rapids, Michigan (1948–1964), along with Rev. Herman Hoeksema and Rev. Hubert De Wolf. Rev. Hanko poignantly describes the grief caused in the PRC by De Wolf’s heresy and schism (1953).

              More than this, Less Than the Least follows Rev. Hanko from his childhood, school days, and seminary training, all the way to his retirement (1977) and beyond.

                      What is and is not acceptable in a church service? Many churches today cater to the whims of their members when answering this question. This book, using the regulative principle and scripture as its guides, lays the groundwork for decision making regarding public worship.

                      Sixteenth-Century Reformation of the Church, The

                      Club Price $7.77

                      $11.95


                      From sketches of the lives of Martin Luther and John Calvin to an explanation of the reformers’ distinctive doctrine of the last things, this book ranges widely over the sixteenth-century Reformation of the church.

                      The Sixteenth-Century Reformation of the Church is divided into three parts: (fascinating) “Lives”; (significant) “History”; and (fundamental) “Doctrines and Issues.”

                      Written for believers and their children, rather than for scholars, the short but meaty articles will serve to introduce the Reformation to the reader who is ignorant of that grand work of Christ; to remind the reader who is familiar with the Reformation of its glories and worth; and to ground the believing reader in the truth of the Reformation confessed, as well as to help him or her in the holy life the Reformation called for. Especially the young people of the covenant will benefit from this book.

                      The writers are ministers of the Protestant Reformed Churches in America and of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of Australia.

                      The Rock Whence We Are Hewn is comprised of various pamphlets and booklets written very early in the history of the Protestant Reformed Churches—between 1919 and 1940. The authors are two men whom God used in forming these churches—Herman Hoeksema and Henry Danhof. All the writings explain and defend the great doctrines of the Reformed faith that were fundamental to the founding of the Protestant Reformed Churches—covenant, predestination, particular grace, and antithesis. These writings therefore were used to establish these churches in the very beginning of their history. The contents of the book are their foundational writings.

                      The title of the book is taken from Isaiah 51:1: “Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged.” In this figurative way the prophet called the people of Israel to look to their origins. This title calls the members of the Protestant Reformed Churches, including the ministers and other officebearers, and especially the younger generation, to find in the book the doctrinal truths that are of fundamental importance to the Protestant Reformed Churches still today. By the work of the Spirit these doctrines, confessed, defended, and explained in the writings in this book, are the source of the churches—the rock whence they were hewn.

                      Under the figure of a well-tended garden (Isa. 58:11), the author tells the history and development of the Protestant Reformed Churches in America. Its roots are traced from the Reformation to reforming movements in the Netherlands, from Reformed Dutch immigrants to its birth as a denomination, and from there to the 1980s. Trials and triumphs alike are narrated as God's gracious care for his people is demonstrated.
