What Is Your Reasonable Service?

“I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”—Romans 12:1 (KJV)

Wilhelmus à Brakel was a major theologian and scholar in the Dutch Puritan Reformation of the seventeenth century. He took Romans 12:1 to heart, applying its message to his character with sincerity and piety. For his congregations and Reformation movement, he desired nothing besides godliness and holiness. The Christian’s Reasonable Service exemplifies his heart as he systematically presents a theology of piety.

It has been argued that this is the best work in Puritan literature. Reformed believers in the Netherlands and England instantly found this work as endearing as à Brakel himself. As his magnum opus, The Christian’s Reasonable Service contains the compelling doctrine of à Brakel’s experiential theology.

What is your reasonable service? It is a reasonable question—one that à Brakel ponders as a way to assess our Christlikeness, guiding the reader through this biblical theology at the same time. Pre-order this classic four-volume Puritan masterpiece and help us get this spiritual systematic theology into Logos for the benefit of all who take Romans 12:1 to heart.
