Articles About À Brakel and The Christian’s Reasonable Service

One of the objectives of this developing web-site is to make this the one place where you will be able to find anything (and someday everything!) that has been written about à Brakel and The Christian’s Reasonable Service.

I have made a small beginning by posting four articles. Under the rubric “Articles” you will find:

1. Wilhelmus à Brakel and the Importance of Hope, written by Derek Baars in 2006 in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the course I teach at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, entitled The Theology of Wilhelmus à Brakel.

2. Seeking God in Personal Devotions In Wilhelmus à Brakel’s The Christian’s Reasonable Service, written by Rev. Maarten Kuivenhoven in 2006 in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the course I teach at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, entitled The Theology of Wilhelmus à Brakel.

3. Wilhelmus à Brakel—A Biographical Sketch, written by Rev. Cornelis Vogelaar (written in Dutch). Rev. Vogelaar is the pastor of the Gereformeerde Gemeente (Netherlands Reformed Congregation) of Zwolle, the Netherlands. During the years that I translated the CRS (1989-1995) he was my pastor, who, due to his expertise in seventeenth century Dutch, provided me with invaluable assistance in arriving at the correct translation of archaic vocabulary and/or idiomatic expressions.

4. The Covenant of Works and the Stability of Divine Law in Seventeenth-Century Reformed Orthodoxy: A Study in the Theology of Herman Witsius and Wilhelmus à Brakel, written by Dr. Richard Muller (Calvin Theol. Seminary). This is a scholarly article by one of the world’s foremost scholars of Reformation and Post-Reformation theology.

Early next year, the Lord willing, some papers from Th. M. students at PRTS, who took the course The Theology of Wilhelmus à Brakel this past May, will be posted as well.

I am actively searching for additional written material (English or Dutch) about à Brakel and The Christian’s Reasonable Service. Should you have access to such material, I would be greatly indebted if you would forward this to me, so that I can post it as well. Please contact me at belshout@gmail.com. Thanks.
