Faithfulness Under Fire

(Reformation Heritage Books, 2010), hb., 32 pp.
Ages 4+

This is a nicely done, brief biography of the author of the Belgic Confession. Christians tend to be unaware of church history, and, even when we have some awareness, the Reformation beyond Luther and Calvin is typically a significant gap.

Guido de Bres (1522-1567) studied under Calvin and Beza and was a key Reformation leader in Belgium. His Belgic Confession remains one of the doctrinal standards of many of the Reformed churches today. This little book relates his discovery of the Scripture, his ministry under persecution and his eventual martyrdom. This book is simple and straightforward and is a good resource for introducing young children to a key church leader and the reality of people suffering for the faith.
