Learning the Alphabet of Faith

~ NEW BOOK ~

by A Veldman
 
How do we as Christians translate the gold of our faith into coins for everyday life?
These 26 sermons - the ABC of Faith - teach that what God's children confess with their mouths and know in their heart must be converted into daily deeds of thankfulness for the gift of salvation. They take us from the A in Amen, through C for Confessing, H for Hope, P for Pray, and W for Wait, to Z for Zeal
suitable for personal and family study, as well as for use in church services.

His Word before yours

~ NEW E-BOOK ~

by Egbert Brink

Rev. Brink wrote this book for Christians who want the biblical message to be their guide on their journey through life. A guide to knowing God as He has revealed Himself in his Word. For knowing God is life (John 17:3).
In a refreshing style, this book outlines what Christians believe, bringing it across in the language of today. This approach makes the book suitable for various uses, such as pre-confession catechism classes, Bible study groups, post-confession courses and personal Bible study.
Each chapter contains a roster of Scripture passages for daily reading, as well as questions to encourage discussion.

Tears for Jerusalem - Scripture Studies on Lamentations

by D Grutter

Lamentations is one of the least known books of the Bible. That means that a part of God's own Word remained closed to us. A Word that after all belongs to the Gospel, whic we confess we must believe to be saved. This book too, has been given to us for our comfort...
The believers who sat among the ruins of Jerusalem, or who lived along the streams of Babylon, experienced difficulties. Their tears were shed for Jerusalem, but a light also penetrated the dark clouds that converged above the church.
This book is an attempt to show some of the riches of these songs of lamentation.

Esther

by P Poortinga

The Book of Esther has a unique place in the Bible. It is an account of events at the court of a Persian king who was not acquainted with God. God's name is not mentioned anywhere in the book. Besides the familiar canonical Book of Esther, apocryphal segments exist wherein God is mentioned by name. Yet God reveals Himself especially in the canonical Bible book. That is why it is so fascinating to attentively read that well-known narrative. This book aims to promote such reading.

Hosea - A Strange Love

by HJ Messelink

Who is God? It is a question many people have tried to find an answer to throughout the ages. It is also a question we can ask ourselves: who is God? What should be our view of God? Often when answering this question, the emphasis is placed on one particular aspect of God: His omnipotence, His love, or His wrath. This holds the danger of forming a fixed image of the LORD God. He is the living God, however, the God who is concerned about our lives; who responds to our behaviour and in this way makes Himself known to us.

It is in this manner that God comes to us through the prophecy of Hosea. He is hurt, offended, and terribly angry. He punishes His people. At the same time He is very loving. The Lord entices His people, draws them towards Him; He longs for His people. He wants to grant them conversion and healing. And He is still the same today. Through this Bible-passage we may know how He is also present in out personal lives today. I sincerely hope that the study of this part of the Bible may contribute towards gaining a closer acquaintance with the living God.

The sub-title, a strange love, reveals something about the special characteristic of this Bible-book. Hosea was required to show love to an adulterous woman. In the same manner our God shows love for an adulterous nation. A strange love. Who would love a woman who is unfaithful? Our God does! And his love conquers. That is the red thread that runs through the prophecy of Hosea.
