Precious Memories Series
In an area surrounded by the big woods of Wisconsin, the Mississipi and Missouri Rivers, Walnut Grove and Plum Creek, and the prairies of south Dakota, a new generation of faith, settled in the days of the first automobile, electricity, and gas furnaces (that would explode). Carol Brands has depicted the true story of a country girl, Katherine, in a setting of world wars, by a very accurate account, which will likely cause thousands to visit places such as Rock Rapids in Iowa and Leota and Magnolia in Minnesota in years to come in between exploring De Smet in South Dakota and Walnut Grove in Minnesota. Living history, so that children (and their parents too) understand times past in order to be a blessing in times present, for the glory of God!

Once they were all in school, she worked for another twelve years in a local care center. Now she is thrilled to enter the stage of grandmother, anticipating her eleventh grandchild in 2013.
Little Yellow Farm House in Iowa
by Carol Brands
A Fictionalized Biography of Katherine Vastenhout
Book 2: Years Eleven through Seventeen: World War II Years
When the Kroontje family moved into their second tiny house, they had no idea that within months of their move Uncle Bill Tilstra would be assigned to the USS Arizona, the first ship Japan bombed in Pearl Harbor. Nor did they know that three of Uncle Bill's ships would be destroyed but that he would be spared from death in ways that were clearly God's providential care . . . yet so horrific that he hated talking about the war.
While war loomed in the background, Uncle Bill always on the family's mind, Katherine's farm life continued with a mixture of stories some humorous, some serious, some full of neighborliness, some with tragedy.
Join the Kroontje family living daily life on an Iowa farm even while World War II is being fought across the oceans.

The World, our Home by Dr. C. Van der Waal
Christians between creation and recreation
For the Christian there is no choice to be made between gospel and culture, and no antithesis between culture and the Christian faith. Van der Waal does not promote a false sense of optimism, but does oppose cultural pessimism. The believer is the rightful heir to this inheritance. The cultural mandate has as much a place in the New Testament era as does the mission mandate. On that basis, he calls us to cultural engagement and to living life on this created earth as whole human beings with bodies as well as spirits and souls. We are not to transform culture, and certainly not to counter it, but simply to fulfill our calling. Christians are called to be salt and light, not only through pure doctrine and preaching to save souls, but by showing how life is meant to be lived on this created earth. As part of our mission mandate, we need to be able to have meaningful dialogue between Jerusalem and Athens. That dialogue should point back to creation and the new creation (Easter), and forward to the resurrection of our bodies.

Trust God, Keep the Faith
by Bartha Hill - de Bres
The Story of Guido de Bres
During the late sixteenth century the Reformation was sweeping across Europe. As the Bible became a loved book by the common man, many people questioned the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church at the perils of their lives. By torture and cruel deaths the priests attempted to return these rebels to the church.In the midst of this battle Guido de Bres lived as he died trusting God and keeping the faith.Nearly five hundred years have passed since he was born, but the confession of faith written by Guido de Bres a wonderful summary of Gods Word continues to live on in the lives of Reformed people around the world.This book, written by one of his descendants, is about Guido de Bres. It describes the time in which he lived, and the confession of faith God allowed him to write.Though intended for older children it also will be enjoyed by adults.Time: 1522-1567
THE TRUE FAITH
by S.G. De Graaf
A Commentary on Lords Days 1 - 22
of the Heidelberg Catechism
What is true faith?
True faith is a sure knowledge whereby I accept as true all that God has revealed to us in His Word.At the same time it is a firm confidence that not only to others, but also to me, God has granted forgiveness of sins, everlasting righteousness, and salvation, out of mere grace, only for the sake of Christs merits.This faith the Holy Spirit works in my heart by the gospel.

Prince and Heretic by Marjorie Bowen
A Novel on William the Silent vol. 1
"The mind and the soul are not in the keeping of king nor priest no man has a lordship over another mans conscience. All history has proved that." William of Orange
Here is a fascinating historical novel for teenagers and adults about one of the greatest heroes of all time. William of Orange, considered today the father of Europe (and who can also fittingly be called the step-father of North America and the whole free western world) sets the stage as stadtholder of the Roman Catholic King of Spain, Philip II. William, though a nominal Roman Catholic at the time, determines to help the persecuted Protestants and in the process marries the Protestant Princess Anne of Saxony. But will Anne truly be a helpmeet for her husband? When he is pressed to take up the sword against King Philip he does not hesitate. In his struggles, William not only finds the God of his mother but grows in courage and the conviction that God has chosen him to be a faithful instrument to gain freedom for Christs Church. William sacrifices all his possessions to pay the hired soldiers, but is it of any use? His brothers, Lodewyk, John, Adolphus, and Henry, also give all they have for the cause of freedom of a country which can hardly be called their own. Behind these heroes, a faithful praying mother, Juliana of Stolberg, waits for news at the German castle of Dillenburg.

William by the Grace of God by Marjorie Bowen
A Novel on William the Silent vol. 2
The sequel to Prince and Heretic, by Marjorie Bowen.
King Philip II of Spain is prepared to make any concession to the lowlands, except freedom of conscience and worship and thus William of Orange continues in the struggle for true liberty. More important noblemen and personal friends sacrifice their lives, leaving few of Williams original friends alive. But Charlotte de Bourbon is ready to encourage her hero despite all the crises he must endure. When Leyden is under siege William becomes ill. Will the cause have to be given up?
King Philip, in the meantime, is furious because he cannot get rid of William. Everyone on his black list is dead but not the most important one: William of Orange. In a fury he writes the Ban and publishes it abroad. With this permission to dispose of his enemy in any way, the King is sure someone will kill William for him. After all, they will receive a great reward: a high position and name, wealth, fame . . . Will King Philips plan succeed?

Three Men Came to Heidelberg by Thea Van Halsema
& Glorious Heretic: the Story of Guido de Brès
From the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation came two outstanding statements of faith: The Heidelberg Catechism (1563) and the Belgic Confession (1561). The stories behind these two historic documents are in this small book.
Frederick, a German prince, asked a preacher and a professor to meet at Heidelberg to write a statement of faith that would help teach his people the truths of the Bible. The result was the Heidelberg Catechism.
The writer of the Belgic Confession was a hunted man most of his life. Originally he wrote the confession as an appeal to the King of Spain to have mercy on the Protestants he was persecuting in the Lowlands. Not only was the request denied, but for his efforts the brilliant heretic de Brès was imprisoned and hanged by the Spanish invaders.

This Was John Calvin by Thea Van Halsema
Roger Nicole: "The most lively and readable biography of Calvin available in English."
J.H. Kromminga: "Though it reads as smoothly as a well written novel, it is crammed with important facts. It is scholarly and popular at the same time. The book will hold the interest of the young but will also bring new information to the well informed. . . . This book recognizes the true greatness of the man without falling into distortions of the truth to protect that greatness."
John Calvin comes alive as the author brings imagination as well as research to bear upon her subject. Her portrayal of the Genevan reformer is both appealing and honest.From this account, Calvin no longer is seen merely as "carved like a monument in the panorama of human history," but has become vivid, lifelike, and real. This is biography at its best.

The Baron of Salgas A True Huguenot Story by Sabine Malplach
and: The Cross and the Crown & The Carpenter of Nîmes
Two Huguenot Stories by Deborah Alcock
The Cross and the Crown tells about a man by the name of Gabriel Vaur. After the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes (1685), life once again became very dangerous for the Huguenots in France. When the Dragonnades came, Gabriel tried to get help, leaving his father, sister, and brother behind. Would he ever see them again? Would he ever be able to flee France and reach England?
The Baron of Salgas is the true story of the Baron and Baroness de Salgas. Even though her husband forbids her to be an open Huguenot, the Baroness knows that her Saviour had said that whoever would deny Him would be denied by Him. So one night she made her escape to Geneva. Would her husband follow? Would he recant? What would happen to their sons who were taken to the convents?
The Carpenter of Nîmes goes back more than a century to the year 1569 and tells about a man named Jacques Maderon. When the pastor tells him that Christ had said, "Son, go work today in My vineyard," he knows it is time to do something. Then the father of his friend was imprisoned. Would he succeed to cut the bars of the gate and so make way for the Huguenots to enter the city and deliver it?

Bobbys Friends by Phia van den Berg
The publishers most favourite juvenile story
"Lights!" Jessie announced loudly. Suddenly everyone was awake. Karachi appeared beneath them on the lefthand side. At first they saw only a narrow strip of tiny lights, but soon it broadened. The plane swung sideways as it turned, gliding above the sea of city lights. The children hadnt paid much attention to the other landings during the trip, but this one became very exciting!
Pakistan! Every year a part of Western Pakistan underwent a drastic flood, washing away all the gardens and homes of the inhabitants. Father Falois, agriculturist, was asked by the government to try to control the floods. But life in Pakistan was so different for Bobby and his siblings. The worst part was understanding the people, that breach between the rich Muslims and the poor Christians. How would Bobby find friends? Would the screaming, proud, millionaires son, Sadiq, be a friend, or would Jahja, the very poorest of all? Who would be faithful when danger came?

". . . was sorting through old pictures today and found this one. It was taken eleven years ago . . . on my sons birthday party. See all those party boys listening to a beautifully told Bible story by Anne DeVries! We have read these books over and over and they are now falling apart. I would love to buy a big stack to equip my grown up children (we have nine all busy growing) [with] these two bible story books so they can read them to their children. They are written precisely to Scripture, by a man who clearly understood Gods redemption plan and portrays it in a faith-building way. I have bought and read other Bible stories but none so able to build a childs faith. My Mom read these books to me and my siblings in Dutch and how I loved them. So I am pleading with you to republish them."

The Glorious Gospel of Grace
Sermons on the Heidelberg Catechism by Rev. G. Wieske
. . . our great and gracious God will reward the faithfulness of His children. Not because He has to, but because He wants to. He is like a father who promises his children to reward them for the work he gives them to do. Because He loves His children, He wants to encourage and inspire them . . . Who performs the good works believers do? Who is the source that allows them to produce fruits of thankfulness? Who else but God? Who else but the Spirit of Jesus Christ? . . . All thoughts of merit disappear in the light of the gospel of the crucified Christ . . . What an incredible display of divine mercy! The only answer to it is a life of love for the mercies of our God. Merit implies calculation. Earning credit points does not demand love. But true believers dont keep a record of their good works. They are overwhelmed by the gospel of grace. Their fruits of faith well up from hearts that stammer: "What shall I render to my Saviour now, for all the riches of His consolation?"

Rooted in All of Scripture
To rediscover Gods gift of eldership for the church today, we need to go back beyond the New Testament to the origins of the office of elder in ancient Israel. There we discover the enduring principles that guided the elder in antiquity and that guide the church today. In this book you will develop a renewed understanding of the office of elder and of godly discipline.
"Rooted in the deep soil of Reformed faith and practice, The Elder is a treasure at a time when much gets lost in translation from theory to practice. I heartily recommend this book for current elders, elders-in-training, aspiring elders, and those who seek to be blessed by their labors." Michael S. Horton
The Overflowing Riches of My God
by Clarence Bouwman
Revisiting the Belgic Confession
The gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ touches peoples lives where they laugh and cry, work and sleep, walk and drive. Four hundred years ago Guide deBres a man of like nature to anyone alive today put to paper what he heard God say in His holy Word. He did so in order that his congregation might receive encouragement and instruction in the midst of lifes dust and dirt. As the God deBres confessed in the Belgic Confession does not change, Christians living in todays tumultuous times can still receive encouragement and instruction from this creed of centuries ago. This book attempts to give the reader a feel for how believers of long ago worked in trying circumstances with the promises God had earlier given in Holy Scripture. The link is then made to our times, and how todays believers can benefit from the way yesterdays believers worked with Gods revelation. This book is for those who wish to know better who the God is that leads and governs every event in todays world. Questions to assist discussion conclude each chapter.

Reclaiming the Pastoral office of Elder
Here is a much needed book containing many helpful ideas gleaned from Scripture. My suggestion is that you buy and devour it. Jay Adams
John Sittema gives elders a fresh and thoroughly Biblical perspective on their work as shepherds in the church. Our elders have discussed many of the authors articles previously published in "The Outlook" with great profit. This book makes being Reformed exciting.
