Product Description

Louis Berkhof (1873-1957) is best known for his "Systematic Theology" which has been translated into numerous languages the world over. This lesser-known little treatise deserves a place of prominence in the church of the 21st century. Listen to the conviction that moved Prof. Berkhof to write: "This little book is born of the conviction that the subject of the assurance of faith deserves more attention that it often receives in the present day. We are not living in an age in which Christian certitude can be taken for granted. The enemy is exerting himself to destroy the foundation which God has laid for our faith in his excellent Word. It is hoped that this little treatise may be of some service in the cultivation of assurance especially among our rising generation."

Author 

Louis Berkhof (1873 – 1957) was a Reformed systematic theologian whose written works have been influential in seminaries and Bible colleges in the United States and Canada and with individual Christians in general throughout the 20th century.

 

Endorsement 

"This book is unsurpassed in its clear, classically Reformed presentation of the threefold foundation of assurance of faith: the promises of God, the inward witness of the Spirit, and the testimony of the Christian graces. Berkhof excels at revealing the direct connection between faith and assurance and counseling believers on the cultivation of that assurance. Covering its history, its foundation, and its experience, Berkhof convinces the reader that assurance ought to be treasured by all believers and that doubt stunts a believer’s growth, well-being, and ability to praise the Lord. Having this book available once again is a great blessing." - Joel R. Beeke, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan
