  • Systematic Theology Second Edition

    $35.99

    The most widely-used text of the last 25 years in its discipline, Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem has been thoroughly revised and expanded (all 57 chapters) for the first time while retaining the features that have made it the standard in its field: clear explanations, an emphasis on each doctrine’s scriptural basis, and practical applications to daily life.

    With several hundred pages of new content, this new edition now includes the following distinctive features.

    *Updated, fuller analysis of several recent controversies within evangelicalism, including the eternal relationship between the Father and the Son in the Trinity, the question of God’s atemporal eternity, the role of women in the church, seeker-sensitive churches, miraculous gifts of the Holy Spirit, and contemporary worship music.

    *New, thoughtful critiques of open theism, the new perspective on Paul, Molinism (or middle knowledge), Free Grace theology, and the preterist view of Christ’s second coming

    *Completely revised, stronger chapter on the clarity of Scripture

    *Completely revised, stronger chapter on creation and evolution (including a longer critique of theistic evolution)

    *New discussion of how biblical inerrancy applies to some specific problem verses in the Gospels

    *Additional material respectfully explaining evangelical Protestant differences with Roman Catholicism, Protestant liberalism, and Mormonism.

    *Completely updated bibliographies

    *All Scripture quotations updated from RSV to ESV

    *An explanation of why monogenes in John 3:16 and elsewhere should be translated as only begotten rather than merely only (this is a change from the first edition)

    *A contemporary worship song added at the end of each chapter (while retaining the traditional hymns as well)

    *Numerous other updates and corrections

    Part of the brilliance of Systematic Theology over the years has been its simplicity and ease of use. Each chapter follows the same structure. First, there is discussion of the doctrine being considered, such as justification or the Trinity or the deity of Christ. An explanation of where that doctrine is supported in the Bible and possible objections follow. Personal application and key terms to know for personal growth are then provided. Chapters also include a scripture memory passage, references to other literature on the topic, and suggested hymns and worship songs.

  • Moody Handbook Of Theology

    $29.49

    The Moody Handbook of Theology leads the beginner into the appreciation and understanding of this essential field of study. It introduces the reader to the five dimensions that provide a comprehensive view of theology: biblical, systematic, historical, dogmatic and contemporary. The apostle Paul wrote that all Scripture is ‘profitable for teaching’ (2 Tim. 3:16), that Timothy should ‘pay close attention to…your teaching’ (1 Tim. 4:16), and that leaders should ‘be able both to exhort in sound doctrine and to refute those who contradict’ (Titus 1:9). When he wrote these statements, Paul was referring to theology.

    Beyond giving basic definitions and general descriptions, author Paul Enns summarized the substantial features of theology. In this way, he provides a concise doctrinal reference tool for the newcomer as well as the seasoned scholar seeking a refresher. There are fifty-five informative charts located at strategic points throughout the book.

  • Everyones A Theologian

    $17.50

    Many people react negatively to the word theology, believing that it involves dry, fruitless arguments about minute points of doctrine. Yet as Dr. R.C. Sproul argues, everyone is a theologian. Any time we think about a teaching of the Bible and strive to understand it, we are engaging in theology. Therefore, it is important that we put the Bible’s varied teachings together in a systematic fashion, using proper, time-tested methods of interpretation so as to arrive at a theology that is founded on truth.

    That is precisely what Dr. Sproul does in Everyone’s a Theologian: An Introduction to Systematic Theology. This book is anything but a dry discussion of minute points of doctrine. Dr. Sproul, demonstrating his trademark ability to make complex subjects easy to understand, surveys the basic truths of the Christian faith, reminding us once more of what God is like and of what He has done for His people in this world and the next.

  • Puritan Theology : Doctrine For Life

    $36.00

    A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life offers a groundbreaking treatment of the Puritans’ teaching on most major Reformed doctrines, particularly those doctrines in which the Puritans made significant contributions. Since the late 1950s, nearly 150 Puritan authors and 700 Puritan titles have been reprinted and catalogued by Joel Beeke and Randall Pederson in their 2006 collection of mini-biographies and book reviews, titled, Meet the Puritans. However, no work until now has gathered together the threads of their teaching into a unified tapestry of systematic theology.

    A Puritan Theology, by Joel Beeke and Mark Jones, attempts to do that. The book addresses Puritan teachings on all six loci of theology, covering fifty areas of doctrine. The book explores Puritan teachings on biblical interpretation, God, predestination, providence, angels, sin, the covenants, the gospel, Christ, preparation for conversion, regeneration, coming to Christ, justification, adoption, church government, the Sabbath, preaching, baptism, heaven, hell, and many other topics. It ends with eight chapters that explore Puritan theology in practice. Some chapters highlight the work of a specific theologian such as William Perkins, William Ames, John Owen, Stephen Charnock, or Thomas Goodwin on a specific topic. Other chapters survey various authors on a particular subject. The goal of A Puritan Theology is to increase knowledge in the mind and godliness in the soul. It was written for theologians, historians, pastors, and educated laymen who seek to learn more about Puritan theology.

  • Evangelism And The Sovereignty Of God

    $10.75

    Foreword
    Preface
    Introduction
    1. Divine Sovereignty
    2. Divine Sovereignty And Human Responsibility
    3. Evangelism
    4. Divine Sovereignty And Evangelism

    Additional Info
    If God is in control of everything, can Christians sit back and not bother to evangelize? Or does active evangelism imply that God is not really sovereign at all?

    J. I. Packer shows in this new edition to the popular IVP Classics how both of these attitudes are false. In a careful review of the biblical evidence, he shows how a right understanding of God’s sovereignty is not so much a barrier to evangelism as an incentive and powerful support for it.

    With over 100,000 copies in print, Evangelism and the Sovereignty of God is truly a classic that should be read by every Christian.

  • From The Finger Of God

    $22.60

    This book investigates criticisms of the ‘orthodox’ and catholic approach to biblical law and concludes that theologians were not mistaken in their belief that the threefold division was rooted in Scripture. Christian teachers who viewed the Bible as a coherent, progressive and self-interpreting whole, had good reason to see the division as having a secure biblical and theological footing. It appears in embryonic form in the Old Testament and the Gospels stand in continuity with the Old Testament presuppositions. The four evangelists present Jesus as law-upholding, while the epistles establish finally the categories and implications of this framework, supporting the idea that the Decalogue enshrines an ever-binding perfect rule of righteousness.

    While none of the New Testament documents claims to provide a theology on its own, Thomas Schreiner suggests that certain recurring themes emerge from the study of the whole. In this volume, he traces key themes as they appear throughout the New Testament canon, exploring the emphases that emerge from a detailed reading of the texts.

    Based on solid exegesis of all the key texts, Schreiner’s approach leads him to a more unified view of core New Testament teaching. He focuses particularly on two overarching themes. The first concerns the unity of redemptive history and the kingdom of God. The New Testament takes up Old Testament imagery and affirms that the kingdom has come (although it remains unfulfilled) in Jesus Christ. The second related theme concerns the goal of the kingdom–the glory of God through the work of Christ and the empowering presence of the Spirit. In the second half of the work, Schreiner takes up the question of what these themes mean for the life of the believer and the ministry of the community of faith.

    Although this substantial and comprehensive volume will be of great interest to scholars, Schreiner’s first concern is to provide an accessible guide for students and pastors. He has succeeded admirably, and readers will find here a lucid exposition of the theology of the New Testament writers.

  • In My Place Condemned He Stood

    $14.20

    If ever there was a time and a need for an enthusiastic reaffirmation of the biblical doctrine of substitutionary atonement, it is now. With this foundational tenet under widespread attack, J. I. Packer and Mark Dever’s anthology plays an important role, issuing a clarion call to readers to stand firm in the truth. In My Place Condemned He Stood combines three classic articles by Packer–The Heart of the Gospel; his Tyndale Biblical Theology Lecture, What Did the Cross Achieve; and his introductory essay to John Owen’s The Death of Death in the Death of Christ–with Dever’s recent article, Nothing but the Blood. It also features a foreword by the four principals of Together for the Gospel: Dever, Ligon Duncan, C. J. Mahaney, and Al Mohler. Thoughtful readers who are looking for a compact classic on this increasingly controversial doctrine need look no farther than this penetrating volume.

  • Gods Greater Glory

    $20.59

    Though in all things God’s Word is the final authority, our Christian tradition, as inherited from centuries of careful reflection and endeavoring to be true to the teaching of Scripture, can greatly enlighten us. Nowhere is this blend of respectful listening to the wisdom of the past and faithfulness to the Bible more necessary than in our contemporary reformulations of the doctrine of God’s person.

    Bruce Ware believes that while tradition’s emphasis on God’s metaphysical perfection and His supremacy over the world is correct, we must refine our understanding of the way in which He relates to us. While retaining the deepest concerns of the historic tradition, Ware offers a more rational view of God’s dealings with His children–a view that is reflected in Scripture’s own testimony of Him. Ware then applies this concept of real divine exaltation and real divine-human relationship to the areas of our prayer life, confidence in God and His guidance of us.
