"To know God … is to delight in him, to enjoy him, and to obey him"—so writes Rev. Ron Hanko in Doctrine According to Godliness. Rev. Hanko ministered in N. Ireland for eight years from 1993 to 2001 as the pastor of the Covenant Protestant Reformed Church, Ballymena. In fact, the book is made up of articles originally written in the manse outside Kells for the Covenant Reformed News, a short, monthly paper (available free by post or e-mail on request).

Doctrine According to Godliness consists of over 235 short, easy-to-read explanations of biblical topics arranged in 6 parts: "God and His Word," "Man and his World," "Christ and His Work," "The Covenant and Salvation," "The Church and the Sacraments" and "The Return of Christ and the Last Things." Articles include "Knowing God," "The Tree of Life," "The Temptations of Christ," "Peace," "Church and Kingdom" and "The Wonder of the Resurrection." The articles are only 1 or 2 pages each and make excellent devotional material.

This attractive hardback published by the Reformed Free Publishing Association (RFPA) in America has some 338 pages and comes complete with a helpful index.

Rev. Hanko is now the pastor of a church in the state of Washington, USA. He is also the joint author of Saved by Grace and its accompanying study guide.
