Strength to Stand

In his short book, The Sacrifice of Praise, Herman Bavinck writes a chapter on the ‘The Strength of Confession’.

By the time you get to this chapter the question lingers, ‘How does one stand and give a faithful confession of Christ?’

Nevertheless, I am committed for this first semester.
