An exposition of the Canons of Dort, this book shows the great pastoral value of the Canons in giving the Christian assurance based on the work of God in Christ. It clearly and engagingly leads the reader not only to understand the background and doctrine of the Canons of Dort, but also to see how its faithful exposition of biblical truth gives us great comfort and confidence in God's promises.
"In a time of renewed interest in Reformed theology, there are few books available that explore the precious wisdom of the Canons of Dort... Cornelis Venema's book fills the gap. Written clearly and simply, But for the Grace of God explores each point of doctrine, demonstrates the foundation of this doctrine in the Holy Scriptures, and responds to objections... The discussion questions make this book ideal for small group studies." - Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
