In this book readers will find accessible—almost conversational—Reformed theology. Not theology-lite but deep doctrine simply explained and connected to life. Growing in the Gospel is a word-about-God spoken not from a lectern, nor even from a pulpit, but from around a dinner table.

With pastoral sensitivity and scriptural capability, Van Vliet engages sincere questions, challenging objections, and real, wrestling issues.

  Rev. William Boekestein, Immanuel Reformed Church, Kalamazoo, MI


Growing in the Gospel is written with the skill of a learned instructor who knows his field along with the heart of a pastor who knows how God’s people think, feel and wrestle with life’s issues. It’s conversational, at pew level.

Carefully crafted questions at the end of each chapter bring up real and relevant matters of 21st-century western believers. This excellent feature will be sure to stimulate energetic and up-building discussion.

  Rev. Peter Holtvluwer, Canadian Reformed Church, Spring Creek, ON

Growing in the Gospel

Do you want to delve into the riches of the gospel more deeply… and live out of them more consistently? In this three-volume set Dr. Jason Van Vliet explores the central truths of Scripture in such a way that those who are already familiar with the basics of the Christian faith can continue to grow in understanding the height, breadth, and depth of God’s Holy Word.

At the same time, these volumes are not merely about doctrine. Our God gave us sound doctrine for daily living.  Thus, each chapter draws connections to everyday life as it is experienced by moms and dads, teens and young adults, married and unmarried, as well as people who are healthy, sick, happy, and distressed—in short, real people living real lives in a really broken world.

All proceeds from this publication will be donated to mission work in Asia or elsewhere.
