WordBridge Publishing announces the publication of Frédéric de Rougemont, The Individualists in Church & State. Translated from the French edition of 1844 by Colin Wright.
ABOUT THE BOOK: The church steadily weakens; the state, filling the void, steadily strengthens. Unbelief runs rampant; faith withers. The morality of the barnyard triumphs; decency and honour vanish in the mists.
What lies behind the dominance of secular degradation, our cultural sickness unto death? Could it be the individualist mind-set infecting the church?
In this sprightly work, the 19th century Swiss statesman Frédéric de Rougemont explores just this issue, right at the point of origin. His conclusion: revivalist movements spread individualism into the church, which went from there to society at large. In turn, this led to the radical separation of church and state and the consequent triumph of unbelief in and through the state.
Rougemont’s exposé leads us right to the present day. He reminds us that through the church’s negligence, this miserable condition was allowed to arise. This means that that through the church’s faithfulness, it can be overcome. If only she would be faithful to her calling to the nations.
This book is required reading for Christians who wish to understand the imperatives of the Christian life and the task of the church in modern society.

(Aalten, The Netherlands, October 14th, 2014) — WordBridge Publishing announces the publication of Philippus J. Hoedemaker’s The Church and Modern Constitutional Law. Translated from the Dutch edition of 1904.
ABOUT THE BOOK: Philippus Hoedemaker (1839-1910) was a Dutch preacher and theologian, best known for his diametrical opposition to Abraham Kuyper. Having started their careers as friends, these two ended up pronounced antagonists. Hoedemaker opposed Kuyper’s “neocalvinist” agenda foursquare. He stood for a publicly recognized church as the central pillar of a confessional state and a Christian nation. Such an agenda could not hope for a hearing in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when Kuyper’s notions of pluralism and neutrality enjoyed a high tide of success. But the current historical juncture has revealed the foundations of sand upon which that agenda was based.
Today the need is for a recovery of first principles with regard to church, state, and nation; and those principles need to be gleaned from a return to biblical teaching and the historical Reformed tradition. This is what Hoedemaker’s book has to offer. It is first and foremost a thorough exposition of the biblical principles of the church and her government. Secondly, it unapologetically drives home the implications of such a church for the public order and for the nations. And it is written with the passion of one who knows he is right, though the entire world be wrong. It has come upon our age, our time, our generation, to take up his challenge and rediscover what God’s Word requires of His people, even now.
