The series

“Stories Children Love”

is for boys and girls 4 to 10 years old.

A child still loves a story — about a cat that ran away, about a hungry dog waiting for some scraps of meat outside a butcher shop, about an abandoned doll lying in the rain.

Each animal, each toy, has its own story. And your child wants to hear that story.

W.G. Van de Hulst was a master storyteller. He knew children. And he wrote stories children love.

Children have long been enthralled with his tales. That’s why more than three million books in this series have been sold in Europe.

Titles in this series: ($6.95 each; or as low as $5.56 if you order all 21 books.)

To help the reader in a task which is not at all easy — for much beauty is lost through thoughtless reading — the author suggests slow reading in a natural tone of voice, with careful attention to emphasis. The reader must enjoy the story with the child. To taste the full pleasure of reading to a child, the two must roam together hand in hand as it were, through the wonderland of make-believe.

To go to Grandmother’s house, Bob, Betsy, and Benjamin have to go through the woods.

VAN DE HULST, W.G. - MY FAVORITE STORY BOOK - 9781928136224 - $ 16.95



Illustrated by C. Walter Hodges

Piet Heyn was a Dutchman,

A Dutchman from Delft,

Who braved the blue deeps of the sea,

To sail out, seafaring,

For flounder and herring,

While he dreamed that his land might be free.

This morning when I awoke, I found myself in complete darkness, and at first supposed that my sleep had quitted me at an earlier hour than usual. However, I heard my grandfather feeling his way about, and I rubbed my eyes, but did not see a bit better.“Grandfather,” said I, “you are up before daylight.”“My dear boy,” he answered, “ if we were to wait for the light of day, we should remain long enough in bed. I fear the snow is above the window.”At this I uttered a cry of horror and leaped out of bed. I soon lighted our lamp, and we were then able to perceive that my grandfather’s conjecture was well-founded.“But the window is low,” he added, “besides, it may be that the snow has been heaped up in this part; perhaps we should not see it above two feet deep at some paces from the wall.”

1. Which assembly in the Church has been endowed with the highest authority?

The consistory.

2. Why is the consistory the highest assembly of the Church?

Because the Lord Jesus Christ officially constituted the jurisdiction over the congregation in the consistory.

3. Where is this found in Holy Scripture?

Acts 20:28, addressed to the elders at Ephesus reads as follows: “Thus take heed to yourselves, and to the whole flock, over which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers to pasture the congregation of God, which He obtained by His own blood.”

“And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of the heavens: and whatever you will bind on the earth, will be bound in the heavens, and whatever you will loose on the earth, will be loosed in the heavens.” —Matthew 16:19

Biblical Devotionals Based on the Canons of Dort

by Rev. N. Vander Want

Translated by Rev. Richard Stienstra

Of the many ecclesiastical gatherings that have been held in the Netherlands over the centuries, the Synod of Dordrecht (1618-1619) probably had the greatest impact on the country’s church life. It produced a Church Order, Orders of Worship were crafted for worship services, and provision was made for a new Dutch Bible translation (with annotations) which was ready in 1637, and became known as the States Translation (Statenvertaling—in English: The Dort Study Bible). Moreover, the delegates also adopted the Heidelberg Catechism and the Belgic Confession as confessions for the Reformed Churches. In addition, a third confession was produced entitled: “the Canons of Dordrecht,” commonly referred to as “the Canons of Dort.”

The stimulus for the existence of the Canons of Dort goes back to the controversy between two professors, Gomarus and Arminius at the University of Leiden. In this dispute the age-old issue of whether the human will was free or not was central. Can a person on his own choose for God or not? What causes people to respond so differently to the gospel? Already in early church history (5th century) Augustine and Pelagius confronted each other about this question, and during the Reformation (16th century) Erasmus discovered in Luther a strong opponent to the doctrine of the free will. The question of whether the will is free or not is related as well to the doctrine of double predestination, meaning that God elected and reprobated from eternity.— From the Author’s Preface

The Christian Faith as outlined in the Heidelberg Catechism

Catechism preaching—as we know it today—dates back to the time of the great Reformation. The Reformers wrote various “catechisms” which were to be used especially in the instruction of the youth of the Church, but this instruction soon developed into a full-fledged afternoon service.

It should be noted, for example, that John Calvin in Geneva had the custom of teaching catechism classes at noon and that parents were required to bring their children and also to attend this instruction themselves! The Genevan Church Order stipulated that catechism instruction shall take place “in the presence of the Church”. In this way catechism instruction became catechism preaching. Similar practices developed in London and Heidelberg.

In our time there is again growing opposition to catechism preaching, based mostly on the same old argument that a creed is not God’s Word and should not be used as text for preaching. The Reformed Churches, however, have responded to this charge by stressing that the catechism gives a faithful summary of God’s Word and that therefore a catechism sermon is also fully the preaching of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and a true exposition of the doctrine of the Scriptures.

Catechism preaching has never impoverished the Church of Christ but instead has enriched the Church. This is so because this preaching provided a regular and systematic explanation of all the key points of doctrine contained in Scripture. The congregations were not subject to the insights and schemes of individual ministers but every year again heard a systematic proclamation of the “full doctrine”. History has shown that in times when catechism preaching was lacking, there was a general deformation and growing rejection of the Reformed confessions, while in times when catechism preaching was appreciated and diligently maintained there was growth in the knowledge and fruits of faith.

Rev. Clarence Stam is pastor emeritus of Cornerstone Canadian Reformed Church at Hamilton, Ontario. He has served in various Reformed Churches in The Netherlands and Canada. He has previously written None Like Thee, a meditative excursion into the prophesies of Micah and Everything in Christ, the Christian Faith outlined according to the Belgic Confession.

A Story of Sweden in the 16th Century



The Reformation Trail Series

Pastor Sten Nilson, a tall, noble-looking man, stood up to welcome his brother, with a smile on his lips and a glad light in his frank blue eyes. But the next moment he drew back disappointed, and even a little annoyed; for "mine host" was ushering in a stranger, an elderly man in a fur coat, holding by the hand a little boy about seven . . .

[The boy asked] with a half timid, half confiding air, "What book is that?"

Surprised at the question from so young a child, the Pastor answered, "It is the Red Book, my son."

The boy looked up indignantly, all his shyness gone. " ’Tis not red," he said, " ’tis brown, nearly black. I thought pastors always spoke the truth."

Journey Through the Night

by Anne De Vries

After the Second World War, Anne De Vries, one of the most popular novelists in The Netherlands, was commissioned to capture in literary form the spirit and agony of those five harrowing years of Nazi occupation. The result was Journey Through the Night, a four volume bestseller that has gone through more than thirty printings in The Netherlands.

"An Old Testament Professor of mine who bought the books could not put them down nor could I."

Dr. Edwin H. Palmer

"This is more than just a war-time adventure. The characters have vitality, depth and great humanity."
