Saving the Reformation, New from W. Robert Godfrey and Reformation Trust
There has been renewed interest in the five points of Calvinism among many Christians today. But these doctrines are not a product of the twenty-first century. So where did they come from, and why are they so important?
In Saving the Reformation: The Pastoral Theology of the Canons of Dort, Dr. W. Robert Godfrey takes us back to 1618–19 when the Canons of Dort were written in response to a mounting theological assault on Reformed Christianity. Now, for its four-hundredth anniversary, he offers a new translation and pastoral commentary on the canons, equipping the next generation with these God-glorifying truths.
“Saving the Reformation is characteristic of Dr. Godfrey’s engaging, clear, pastoral teaching that has benefited so many over the years. Guiding us through the history and biblical truth confessed in the Canons of Dort, he brings us to the reality of the sovereign goodness and all-sufficient grace of God in Christ for us.”
