Lord’s Day 21 Book Recommendation


In the Catechism Class Podcasts for Heidelberg Catechism Lord’s Day 21 we will look at why we believe in “The Holy Catholic Church,” as stated in the Apostle’s Creed.

To supplement the three podcasts and the notes, and for devotional reading, our recommended book is

The Beauty and Glory of Christ’s Bride

(Puritan Reformed Conference)

Ed. Joel Beeke

Please order this volume by clicking this friendly link – that will contribute a small commission to the podcast, and will help us to supply CD copies of the podcast to older people in NI.

(Only in Kindle at present – but second hand and third party options are available)

This collection of a dozen addresses given on the church as Christ’s bride at the 2014 Annual Conference of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary unpacks three overarching themes: looking at the loveliness of Christ’s bride, walking in the path with Christ’s bride, and sharing in the sorrow and hope of Christ’s bride. Specific topics addressed include the beauty of the church’s essence, communion, holiness, unity, diversity, membership, preaching, worship, sacraments, discipline, mission, persecution, and future glory. Together these chapters form an appreciative and practical book on the doctrine of the church, stirring up believers to have greater devotion to Christ’s bride. Two chapters are written by each author, including Michael Barrett, Joel R. Beeke, Gerald Bilkes, Conrad Mbewe, David Murray, and William VanDoodewaard.
