For the Cause of the Son of God provides a well-researched, respectful and timely answer to the claim that predestinarian, creedal theology is detrimental to missions. As the author demonstrates, this nagging complaint against Reformation theology certainly finds no support in Guido de Brès’ Belgic Confession. De Brès’ life beat to a missionary pulse, his martyr’s death sealed the authenticity of his ministry and his great confessional contribution to Christian thought abides as a summary of the kind of religion that inspires and enables men to do great things for God. In shedding much-needed light upon the relationship between Reformed theology and God-honoring missions the author has done a service to both. No one who is serious about theology or missions will want to be without Rev. Bredenhof’s weighty contribution to the church.
