Email or call for price.
With the publication of this volume, Herman Hoeksema concludes his ten-volume exposition of the Heidelberg Catechism. Following the order of the Catechism, in this volume he discusses the subject of prayer as the Christian's chief means of thankfulness for his deliverance by Christ from his sins and miseries.
The author's readers have come to expect from his writings an effective blending of the theological and the practical. And so it is in this final volume.
The title, The Perfect Prayer, aptly describes the content of this volume. No other description is appropriate, because Christ taught his disciples this prayer.
In this exposition Hoeksema removes the misunderstandings and apprehensions about prayer, clearly sets forth its underlying principles, and throughout his discussion manifests a holy reverence toward his subject.
In the light of scripture Hoeksema answers the following questions: What is prayer? Why is prayer necessary for Christians? To whom do we pray? For what may we pray? What is the proper content of prayer? What is the proper attitude in prayer?
Not only does Hoeksema analyze and expound the various parts of this perfect prayer, but he also dwells on the beauty and meaning of the whole prayer.
