This book clearly explains the main topics of the Reformed faith. Written in the catechetical style of question and answers, the book is noted for its succinctness and ample references to Scripture. The 40 brief chapters are characterized by careful doctrinal distinctions, and each one concludes with a question or two asking what the particular subject means for the faith and spiritual reflection of the reader. For today’s readers, it is both an ideal representation of the Dutch Further Reformation’s attention to doctrine and piety, as well as an invitation to carry on that spiritual legacy.

Wilhelmus Schortinghuis (1700–1750) was one of the final leaders of the Further Reformation in the Netherlands. He studied theology at the University of Groningen. He became a pastor in Germany, and later accepted a call to pastor a Reformed church in the Netherlands, where he served until his death. He produced several poems and hymns in his lifetime, as well as books, the most famous and controversial of which is titled Het Innige Christendom.
