With great pleasure we offer this daily devotional of meditations from the late Rev. Frans Bakker (1919-1965). His devotionals and meditations proved to be comforting and edifying to many of God's people in the Netherlands. Writing in a simple but penetrating style, Bakker emphasized the fullnes of Christ for needy sinners. In The Everlasting Word, all of Bakker's published meditations have been translated and compiled with additional selections from his sermons. We trust that the end result is a collection filled with great nuggets of spiritual wisdom that you will enjoy. May this devotional be both an encouragement that edifies God's people and an admonition for a life with Christ in the present age.
Frans Bakker (1919-1965) was a minister of the Christelijke Gereformeerde Kerken in The Netherlands, serving congregations in Huizen and Driebergen. He is best known among English speakers for his book Praying Always, published by The Banner of Truth Trust.
"These pages are filled with profundities of the Christian life, but they are communicated in simple, seemingly unstudied, language. Frans Bakker obviously had a tremendous gift of communication, but he wrote only in Dutch. Now, English readers can enjoy the riches of his work, and be drawn closer to the Christ whose praise is throughout this daily devotional. Highly recommended!" - Michael Haykin
