About the British Reformed
"The works of the Lord are great, sought out of all
them that have pleasure therein" (Ps. 111:2). This touches upon our
heart: in what do we take pleasure?
Jehovah’s works centre in His salvation of His church
in Jesus Christ: glorious works wrought before the foundation of the
world, at the cross of Calvary and in the hearts and lives of His
This is the calling and delight of the saints: to
seek to understand these works. In this wonderful activity, all of God’s
faithful children are occupied, for Jehovah’s works are "sought out of
all them that have pleasure therein."
This book is written to help God’s people in their
delightful calling to search out and study the wonderful works of the
Its authors, Profs. David Engelsma and Herman Hanko,
have between them spent almost 100 years in the Christian ministry
extolling and magnifying "the God of all grace" (I Peter 5:10) and His
"so great salvation" (Heb. 2:3), in preaching and polemics, in
catechising and counselling, in lecturing and writing. Between them,
they have authored or edited some 20 books, including the previous
publication of the British Reformed Fellowship (BRF),
Keeping God’s Covenant.
The six chapters of The Five Points of Calvinism
were originally the six main speeches at the ninth biennial British
Reformed Fellowship Family Conference at Cloverley Hall, Shropshire,
England, in 2006. This little book proclaims the doctrines of grace,
both warmly and antithetically, and with deep scriptural penetration. It
draws upon a wealth of historical and creedal material, especially the
Canons of Dordt (1618-1619), the original Five Points of Calvinism.
Here is robust, unashamed and uncompromising Calvinism which is also
deeply personal and moving, calling the saints to love, confess and
promote "the true grace of God" in Christ Jesus (I Peter 5:12).
Reader, the biblical truth of God’s sovereign grace
is near you, even in a book in your hand; you do not need to descend
into the depths of the sea, encompassed with seaweed, and be swallowed
by a great fish, like Jonah, to learn that "Salvation is of the
Lord"—all of it (Jonah 2:10)!
This book is sent forth "to the praise of the glory
of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved" (Eph.
1:6), that we might grow in gratitude and worship Him for His great work
of saving us in Jesus Christ.
"I just read this publication and I deeply agree with
authors: "The real heat of the battle is right at the
point of the sovereignty of God in the work of salvation"
(p. 4). In our church, we´re unfortunately concentrating
on the current and mostly practical issues. But do we
meditate on these central doctrines and preach/teach
them? The answer is: No. May God forgive us! This book
led me to a confession of our sin: We´ve forgotten what
is absolutely crucial in our lives. Thank you for this
excellent book!" - Czech Republic
