The Belgic Confession: Its History and Sources

The Belgic Confession is one of the most important and oldest doctrinal statements of the Reformed churches. Written in 1561, it became a confession of Protestant believers in the Netherlands in the face of persecution from the Roman Catholic government. Despite its importance, there has been no comprehensive study on the history and background of this confession in English—until now. In this volume, Nicolaas Gootjes explores several key aspects of the confession, including its early history, authorship, authority, translation, revision, and relationship to Calvin and Beza. It is a valuable contribution to the field of Reformation studies.

Credo: An Overview of the Church's Confession as summarized in the Three Forms of Unity

“What do you believe about God? About salvation and redemption? About the Ten Commandments?” These are the kinds of questions young people are confronted with in today’s climate of religious pluralism. This book—originally designed as a course for public profession of faith classes—has been structured to help young people answer these questions and to confirm them in their own faith. It presents an overview of the continental Reformed confessions known as the Three Forms of Unity: the Heidelberg Catechism, the Belgic Confession, and the Canons of Dort.

The Two Books Debate: What if Scripture and Science seem to say Different Things?

Recorded during Conference 2014: "Correctly Handling the Word of Truth: Reformed Hermeneutics Today." It is common to speak of the two books of God's revelation: the book of Scripture (special revelation) and the book of creation (general revelation). Support for this approach has been found in Article 2 of the Belgic Confession. However, should the book of creation, and scientific discoveries from it, impact how we interpret the book of Scripture? Or should it be the other way around? Dr. B. Kamphuis responds to this speech.
