In The Sacrifice of Praise, Herman Bavinck pastorally guides the reader through the importance of the public profession of faith. Bavinck's careful treatment includes explorations of the unifying power of a common (ecumenical) confession of faith, the blessing of the diversity of believers, and reasonable instruction for those facing persecution for publicly identifying with Christ. Theological, practical, straightforward, and devotional, The Sacrifice of Praise gives readers a fresh appreciation for the importance of confessing one's faith.
This is an updated English translation of the original Dutch edition and includes a new introduction and scriptural citations.

“The biblical wisdom and deep spirituality of this little book should not be overlooked. What a blessing to have Bavinck’s brilliance passed down to us in a new English edition. The translation is elegant, and the historical introduction immensely valuable. Most of all, Bavinck’s insights—on everything from sacraments to shame—are edifying in the truest sense of the word. There are lessons here that will help parents, children, educators, pastors, students, new Christians, and seasoned saints. Sacrifice of Praise is a gem.”

“This book’s challenge to make confession of faith a continual part of the Christian life is not just about our children; it’s for all of us. I found Bavinck’s thoroughly readable and warm writing enlightening, challenging, and often moving. This book implanted in me a greater longing for the culmination of human history when all will bow and confess that Jesus is Lord to the glory of God the Father.”
- Nancy Guthrie, author and Bible teacher
“In our age—often shallow, distracted, and confused—this book will sound like a thunderclap. It is a classic study on the necessity and centrality of Christ and of how we should learn to think of life, from parenting to worldview, from this center. The perspective is Reformed, and the intent is the church’s reformation. It is a study at once rigorous, deep, devout, and pastoral.”
- David F. Wells, Distinguished Senior Research Professor Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, South Hamilton, MA
