  1. On Trinity (De Trinitate)
  2. The Christian's Reasonable Service (4 volumes)

    First published in 1700, The Christian's Reasonable Service (De Redelijke Godsdienst) ran through 20 Dutch editions in the eighteenth century alone! The title is derived from Romans 12:1, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service." It expresses what God requires from man, and particularly from the Christian, that he serve him in Spirit and in truth-intelligently, rationally, and in harmony with and response to God's revelation of himself: his Word. With a decidedly Puritan flavor and representing Reformed experiential religion at its best, Wilhelmus à Brakel systematically moves through the major doctrines of the Bible in hopes of seeing the minds of God's people renewed for the purpose of promoting godliness. Throughout his work, but particularly in the practical application of each doctrine, à Brakel strives unceasingly to exalt the name of Jesus as the name that the Father has given above every other name-there being no other name given under heaven among men whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12).

  5. Institutes of the Christian Religion (1536 edition)

    John Calvin was just twenty-seven years old when the first edition of his Institutes was published in Basel in 1536. Calvin's “little book” — as he affectionately called it — grew in size throughout the rest of his life; eventually, this early, shorter version evolved into what is now known as the Institutes, the 1559 edition, which Calvin considered the authoritative form of his thought for posterity.

  7. Exposition of the Christian Faith

    Written by Ambrose, Bishop of Milan, at the request of Gratian, the Emperor of the West as a counter to the influence of Arianism which at that time (A.D. 378) was growing rapidly. The object was to prove the divinity of Jesus, His co-eternity, co-equality and consubstantiality as God the Son with God the Father. He constantly appeals to the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which the Arians had in many cases forced into a false interpretation to make them fit their doctrine.

    Along with St. Gregory the Great, St. Jerome, and St. Augustine, St. Ambrose is considered one of the original Doctors of the Church. He played an important role in the conversion of St. Augustine.

  8. On the Incarnation

    This important synthesis of Christian thought up through the 4th century has remained one of the most foundational of all Christian texts ever written. Athanasius wrote to refute the Arian heresy which maintained that Jesus was merely human, created like any other man. Arians believed that Jesus had a beginning, and was not of the same essence or substance as the Father. To prove the incarnation of God the Word, Athanasius starts at Creation and the Fall, continues with the Divine dilemma and its solution in the incarnation, the death of Christ, the resurrection and then ends with refuting the Jews and Gentiles. This work is a key theological treatise regarding the divinity of Christ, and His incarnation (fully God, and fully man). Learn More
  9. The Enchiridion on Faith, Hope and Love

    The Enchiridion was written by Augustine of Hippo in 420 shortly after the death of St. Jerome in response to a request by an otherwise unknown Roman named Laurentius as a model for Christian instruction. This comprehensive exposition of the basic teachings of Christianity is organized according to the three graces necessary for the Christian worship of God: Faith, Hope and Love. Under Faith, Augustine explains the use of the Apostles' Creed, in teaching Christian doctrine and in refuting heresies. Under Hope, he briefly explains the Lord's Prayer as a model of Christian prayer. The final part is a discourse on Christian love. Learn More
