The Practice of Faith, Hope, and Love.
Pagan philosophers of old spoke of virtues of justice, self-control, prudence, and courage as necessary for a civil society. However important these may be, Scripture tells us that Christians have three chief virtues necessary for living a truly virtuous and godly life before God: faith, hope, and love. In this book, Godefridus Udemans carefully explains the Apostles’ Creed, the Lord’s Prayer, and the Ten Commandments, using them as standards and guides for cultivating faith, hope, and love in our hearts. Udemans particularly excels in demonstrating the practical relevance of these teachings, making this not only an overview of Reformed doctrine but also a handbook for living blessedly forever.
