Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By N. Smith on October 31, 2013
Format: Paperback
From the publisher's site:

"Simple, informative, and practical, this devotional takes us by the hand and leads us through one of the greatest summaries of biblical truth that the Christian church has ever produced. In Rev. Vonk's meditations you will find both sweetness and light for the soul, presented in a manner well-suited for personal devotions, family worship, or children's classes."

--Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary,
Grand Rapids, Michigan

"Of all the Reformed confessions, the Heidelberg Catechism is one of the most-loved and widely-used in the history of the Reformed churches. Within a short period of time after its first publication in January 1563, Heinrich Bullinger (1504-1575), leader of the Reformed church in Zurich, wrote that it was 'the best catechism ever published.' Coming from the pen of one of the most influential Reformers of the sixteenth-century, this commendation of Bullinger was not only true at the time but also prescient. Now that 450 years have passed since the Heidelberg Catechism was first published, it still serves the churches as the one of best catechetical instruments for the instruction of church members in the Christian faith and an excellent 'rule of faith' (regula fidei) for the ministry of the Word of God through preaching. For this reason, the translation into English of Cornelis Vonk's abbreviated exposition of the Heidelberg Catechism is a welcome development. Consistent with Vonk's original intention, this popular treatment of the catechism will serve well as an aid to the instruction of catechumens.
