THE DUTIES OF PARENTS
Jacobus Koellman

Jacob Koelman's The Duties of Parents sets forth theological and practical guidelines for Christian parenting. It emphasizes the need for loving, thoughtful discipline and urges parents to tell their children that their eternal well-being is the purpose of all nurture and punishment. Koelman describes the need for good schools and teachers and encourages the latter to realize their great responsibility.

The Duties of Parents gives readers timeless advice and an important glimpse into the ways in which family life was shaped by the emerging Protestant tradition.

"Many will surely welcome this new access to the Dutch authors whose strong writings put faith and certainty into generations of their fellow countrymen. By their closeness to Scripture and their concern for heart and head (heat and light), they remain of enduring value."--Iain H. Murray, author of The Puritan Hope

"I am delighted that the Dutch Reformed Translation Society is at last making this material available in the English language. It is a landmark feature of our Reformed heritage, and it is rich food for the soul in this or any other age."--J. I. Packer, Regent College

A SPIRITUAL APPEAL TO CHRIST'S BRIDE
Jodocus Van Lodenstein, translated by Bartel Elshout, Edited by Joel Beeke

Publisher's Description: A Spiritual Appeal to Christ's Bride consists of nine sermons preached by Jodocus van Lodenstein, one of the most prominent leaders of the Dutch Further Reformation. The sermons stress themes that are dear to the preacher's heart: the need for the Holy Spirit to carry the Reformation further than the mind, the need for perpetual reformation and growth in piety, the need to cultivate holiness and self-denial, and the need to know and experience as Christ's bride an intimate spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ the perfect Bridegroom. The book calls nominal Christians to a more profound commitment to Christ, stressing that only such a commitment can deliver the church from shallowness and unholiness. Today, more than ever, the church needs to heed this call to awaken from its spiritual slumber.

"I am so pleased that these Dutch classics are now available to a wide audience. The writings of the Dutch Further Reformation; almost completely inaccessible until now to the English-speaking world; are a gold mine of spiritual wisdom." - Richard J. Mouw, president, Fuller Theological Seminary

ESSENTIAL TRUTHS IN THE HEART OF A CHRISTIAN
Wilhelmus Schortinghuis

Publisher's Description: This book presents a clear explanation of the main topics of the Reformed faith. Written in the catechetical style of question and answers, the book is noted for its succinctness and ample references to Scripture. The forty brief chapters are characterized by careful doctrinal distinctions, and each one concludes with a question or two asking what the particular subject means for the faith and spiritual reflection of the reader. For today's readers, it is both an ideal representation of the Dutch Further Reformation's attention to doctrine and piety, as well as an invitation to carry on that spiritual legacy.

Wilhelmus Schortinghuis (1700-1750) was one of the final leaders of Dutch Further Reformation.

Harry Boonstra is a retired theological librarian at The Hekman Library, Calvin College and Seminary.

THE MARKS OF GOD'S CHILDREN
Jean Taffin

First published in 1585, this book became an instant classic in Dutch and French Reformed circles.

Weary from the spiritual warfare waged during the Reformation and Counter-Reformation, Taffin offered comfort and encouragement to the peoples of sixteenth-century Europe. Grounded in Reformed confessional orthodoxy, this spiritual reflection provides an astute understanding of the "marks" of God's grace and salvation that is still relevant today.

"I recommend the good medicine of Taffin's Marks of God's Children. . . . A gem of a book that will touch the hearts of many." --William Kooienga, Christian Renewal

"I am delighted that the Dutch Reformed Translation Society is at last making this material available in the English language. It is a landmark feature of our Reformed heritage, and it is rich food for the soul in this or any other age." --J. I. Packer, Regent College

THE PATH OF TRUE GODLINESS
Willem Teelinck

First published more than four hundred years ago, The Path of True Godliness is packed with scriptural guidance for believers who struggle to live a godly life. Written by Second Reformation leader Willem Teellinck, this book serves as a reminder that the struggle to live a godly life is one that Christians have always confronted. Teellinck offers much timeless wisdom that can be easily applied to the lives of contemporary Christians.

Greatly influenced by the Puritan communities in England, Teellinck desired to move beyond doctrine and polity to reformation of daily life and practice. A Puritan-style manual on how to practice godliness, this book provides a basic knowledge of what godliness is, describes the realms of darkness and grace, and shows how to respond to those two realms. It describes the means of achieving the true purposes of life and provides motivation for practicing godliness.

"Many will surely welcome this new access to the Dutch authors whose strong writings put faith and certainty into generations of their fellow countrymen. By their closeness to Scripture and their concern for heart and head (heat and light), they remain of enduring value."--Iain H. Murray, author of The Puritan Hope
