"In a time of renewed interest in Reformed theology, there are few books available that explore the precious wisdom of the Canons of Dordt, the classic statement of the Reformed church's famous seventeenth-century international synod that expounds what we now call the Five Points of Calvinism. 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. Especially refreshing are Venema's treatments of evangelism and human responsibility under the sovereignty of God and for the glory of God. The discussion questions make this book ideal for small group studies."
