"DeYoung brings an event from four hundred years ago right back into the present needs of the church and of theology."

Grace Is Too Precious a Doctrine to Settle for Vague Generalities
Grace--a doctrine central to the gospel--ought to be clearly defined so it can be celebrated, relished, and consistently defended.
In this book, Kevin DeYoung leads us back to the Canons of Dort, a seventeenth-century document originally written to precisely and faithfully define this precious doctrine.
The Canons of Dort stand as a faithful witness to the precise nature of God's supernatural, sovereign, redeeming, resurrecting grace--when so many people settle for vague generalities that water down the truth.
In three concise sections--covering history, theology, and practical application-- DeYoung explores what led to the Canons and why they were needed, the five important doctrines that they explain, and Dort's place in the Christian faith today.
