Bouwman, C. – The Overflowing Riches of my God (Belgic Confession)

The Overflowing Riches of my God (Belgic Confession)

Revisiting the Belgic Confession

by Clarence Bouwman

Evaluation by David Cox

This confession is very important in the Dutch Reformed Church movement. It is a Calvinistic-Reformed position declaration of faith. It was written by a Dutch reformed preacher, Guido de Brés, a martyr (1567) for his faith in Netherlands. Essentially it is 37 articles divided into the doctrines of God (1-2, 8-13), Scripture (3-7), humanity (14), sin (15), Christ (18-21), salvation (16-17, 22-26), the Church (27-36), and the end times (37). For Reformed-Calvinist studies this is a very important document.

Anon – New England Primer

The New England Primer

This was a standard reader in New England in the 18th and 19th centuries. It was apparently used in both public and Sunday (religious) schools. At that time children of all ages studied in the same classroom, so it has portions oriented towards younger and older students.

Besides instruction in the alphabet, the New England Primer also served to indoctrinate young minds in the stern and somewhat morbid Protestantism of that time and place. Depending on your viewpoint, it is either yet another example of how religion has been excised from the public schools in the United States, or a quaint sample of what our forefathers considered acceptable as ‘moral education’.

The New England Primer also has examples of religious intolerance, specifically anti-Catholic and anti-Semitic statements, which reflect then-contemporary attitudes.

This particular book went through a number of editions. This version was scanned from an copy in the possession of my family which was published in 1843. An earlier version, dated 1777, is also available here.
