But for the Grace of God: An Exposition of the Canons of Dort
Venema, Cornelis P.
“There are few books available that explore the precious wisdom of the Canons of Dort. 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.”See All

“Cornel Venema's study is a great help and encouragement to understanding and appreciating the Canons. His analysis of the Canons, discussion questions, and examination of both relevant Scriptures and related questions make this a very insightful and practical book.”See All

“Many believers who sing lustily John Newton’s ‘Amazing Grace’ or the familiar hymn, ‘I Love to Tell the Story,’ need to understand in greater depth and fullness the biblical teaching that salvation is by grace alone through Christ alone. There is no single Christian confession that sings more vigorously of God’s grace in Christ toward His people than the Canons of Dort.”
