Books on Covenant & Family Life


A Sign of Faithfulness by H. Westerink

H. Westerink's book on Baptism is a jewel. One seldom comes across a book that simultaneously matches such simplicity to profundity, and vice versa. The author excels at clarifying the marvellous continuity (and discontinuity) between the old and new covenant with respect to the question of baptism infant baptism in particular.

Celebrating the Sabbath by Bruce A. Ray.

This book explains what's so special about the Sabbath and how we can make the best use of Sundays in a fast-paced world.

"Bruce Ray's book is a wise, balanced, helpful, biblical, and encouragingly fresh look at what the Lord's Day should be for every Christian. His work is meant to instruct, but also to stimulate sound thinking and encourage practical application. Each of these eight readable chapters is followed by questions to deepen the perceptions of the reader and promote a God-pleasing response.

The Privilege of Parenting by C. Bouwman

Who are the children we habitually tuck into bed, drive to their hockey games, assist with their homework and take along on holidays? In the midst of life's busyness, is raising the next generation simply another of life's many demands competing for our time and energy and resources??

This publication follows the historic Form for the Baptism of Infants to explore Scripture's answer to questions about children's identity. The author draws out that God Himself has formed a bond of love with the children He has entrusted to believing parents, and so these parents receive a most privileged function in God's kingdom - training the next generation of little ones to know their Father in heaven. He concludes that the greatest contribution godly men and women can make to the kingdom of God and the nation to which they belong is to impress on their children the glorious identity with which God has marked them, and train them to live in a fashion consistent with their royal distinctiveness. The privilege of parenting: there's none like it.

Clarence Bouwman received his theological training at the Canadian Reformed Theological Seminary in Hamilton, Canada. His marriage to Arlene has been blessed with six children, and they now delight in seeing their family expand with the arrival of a new generation of covenant offspring. While raising his family, the author served as minister of the Word of God in four congregations in Canada and Australia, currently serving as minister of the Canadian Reformec Church of Yarrow, British Columbia. He has written several other publications, including The Overflowing Riches of my God (an explanation of the Belgic Confession), Notes on the Canons of Dort, Spiritual Order for the Church (the Biblical basis for Reformed Church Polity), A Vow to Love (a Biblical explanation of the Form for the Solemnization of Marriage) and To Live is Christ (sermons or the Letter to the Philippians).

Too Wise to Be Mistaken, Too Good to Be Unkind

by Cathy Steere

Christian Parents Contend With Autism

Cathy Steere shares, with an honesty that cannot be missed, the story of how she and her husband David trained their autistic son Drew in ways that point unmistakably to the sufficiency of God's Word to guide us in all of life. It is a moving testimony of how God honours those who honour Him and trust His promises more than the emptiness of men's philosophies. The story will be an encouragement to all parents seeking to train their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

A Vow To Love by C. Bouwman

In this publication the author takes us through the Bible to discern what God's plan for marriage initially was, how the fall into sin has twisted marriage, and how God's plan has been restored through the work of the Lord Jesus Christ. In the process he discusses the role of husband and wife in marriage, the permanence of marriage and how to overcome trouble in marriage, the place of sexual intimacy, the timing and size of the family, the impact of immorality on marriage, and so much more. He concludes that the church's time-tested Form for the Solemnization of Marriage accurately summarizes God's answers to the many questions facing those who marry today.

Clarence and Arlene Bouwman recently celebrated their silver wedding anniversary together with their six children. In the years of their marriage, the author has served as minister of the Word of God in four congregations in Canada and Australia, currently serving as minister of the Canadian Reformed Church of Yarrow, British Columbia. He has written several other publications, including The Overflowing Riches of my God (an explanation of the Belgic Confession), Notes on the canons of Dort, Spiritual Order for the Church (the Biblical basis of the Church Order) and To Live is Christ (sermons on the Letter to the Philippians.)
