Rev Bill Boekestein is a graduate of PRTS, a Pastor of Covenant Reformed Church, and a blogger at Life Reformation. He’s also now an author of Faithfulness under fire, a fine illustrated book about Guido De Bres. As it’s aimed primarily at children, I asked my 15-year-old son to review it. Here’s what he wrote, followed by a video promo.This bright and colorful book on the life of one of history’s most valuable characters, Guido De Bres, has finally arrived! The illustrations fairly jump out the pages of this book to meet your eyes! This great story unlocks the life of De Bres, revealing his life in many masterful aspects. His life as a glass painter, Christian, Pastor, Author, and Martyr show what life was like in the fifteen hundreds. Most of all it shows us real persecution from a ringside seat. It also tells of how the valuable articles of the Belgic Confession of Faith came to be. Our day and age need more books like this that tell it as it is without writing giant biographies to get the message across. I highly recommend this book as a good read for anyone young or old.
