The Belgic Confession has been a gospel witness sealed in blood ever since its first edition was thrown over a wall to Roman Catholic authorities inside the castle of Tournai. Dr. Bredenhof sets the Confession at the intersection of biblical, theological, and historical discussions over the church’s mission. He draws from international scholarship and a broad array of academic disciplines in providing a holistic challenge to the caricature of the Reformation as an inward-focused neglect of the church’s missionary enterprise. Especially interesting is the connection Dr. Bredenhof draws between the Confession and the suffering martyr-witness of the confessing church to a lost world. For the Cause of the Son of God will be welcome by those who love the Reformed confessional witness to biblical truth and who are zealous for the world-wide preaching of the gospel.
