I will admit that I didn’t know what I was getting into when I picked up Kevin DeYoung’s newest book, Grace Defined and Defended. Maybe I should’ve read the subtitle, What a 400-Year-Old Confession Teaches Us about Sin, Salvation, and the Sovereignty of God. I wasn’t expecting a history lesson on the Canons of Dort, but that is exactly what I got. Even more so, I needed such a lesson. We all could stand to know more of where Christianity has come from.
