Things Which Become Sound Doctrine

In my year of concentrating on reading more theology, some of these shorter books (See Ryrie, A Survey of Bible Doctrine in the January issue) serve as great refreshers and reminders of important doctrines.  This is a 1965 edition from Pentecost, long-time professor of Bible Exposition at Dallas Theological Seminary.  Pentecost is well known for […]

A Survey of Bible Doctrine

Charles Ryrie (1925-2016) was long-time professor of Systematic Theology at Dallas Theological Seminary and Dean of Doctoral Studies.  He was an ardent dispensationalist, pretribulationalist, and premillennialist.  His book, Dispensationalism Today (now reprinted as Dispensationalism, of which I treasure an autographed copy from him in person) has been a standard text book for conservative schools for […]

E.Y. Mullins: The Axioms of Religion

Edgar Young Mullins (1860-1928), was an influential Baptist educator , author, and preacher. He became the fourth president of Southern Theological Seminary from 1899 to 1928. He also served as president of the Southern Baptist Convention from 1921 to 1924. In the introduction Mohler writes of him, “As the Southern Baptist Convention entered the twentieth […]

The End For Which God Created The World

Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) is best known for his role in the Great Awakening and his sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God.” Edwards was one of the greatest theological minds America has ever produced. I read this well-known work on Kindle, and I must say, I had to wade through it more slowly […]

Old Paths

I have always enjoyed studying from Ryle’s Expository Thoughts on the Gospels and have wanted to read this long treatise for a while. John Charles Ryle (1816-1900) was bishop Liverpool and an evangelical within the Church of England. If the reader can discern the obvious references to that church polity and doctrine, he can greatly […]

Christianity and Culture

On Kindle, when you finish one book by a certain author, it suggests a few others by the same author. Though I have read many by Machen, I had not seen this one. It is especially interesting to read men from a century before and see how they viewed culture (see my reviews on C.S. […]

Christianity and Liberalsim

I reread this classic work on a Kindle version.  Machen first wrote this book in 1921 when his Presbyterian church was experiencing encroaching liberalism.  It was first published in The Princeton Theological Review and was later put in book form.  The book simply moves through the subjects of man, sin, God, Scripture, Salvation, and the […]

The Christian Faith in the Modern World

I have found that anything written by J. Gresham Machen is worth reading.  I was browsing a journal about Biblical subjects when I saw a chapter from this book reprinted in that publication.  I immediately found a copy of the book on Amazon and bought it.  It was originally published in 1936 but that publication […]

A Systematic Theology of Biblical Christ...

I finally finished Dr. McCune’s final volume of his theology.  This volume covers Salvation, the Church, and Last Things.  The great thing about reading McCune in any subject is his unwavering adherence to a fundamental, dispensational, pretribulational and premillennial point of view.  That combination is almost unheard of these days.  Dr. McCune carries a heavy […]
