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 […]

There is One God

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus (1 Timothy 2:5) This is such an age of conformity, unanimity, and ecumenical oneness that we can hardly speak of God except in all-inclusive terms.  If one were to express that he believes his God to be the only real […]

Breaking Down the Walls…And the Gospel

I had not read Bob DeWaay before this book.  My friend Gary Gilley writes the Forward and can be counted on to give good recommendations.  The book is a pointed critique of Rick Warren’s  Purpose Driven movement.  Unless you are already a Warren fan, you can’t help but agree with most of what DeWaay writes, […]

Guess What Has Not Changed?

Perhaps the most difficult problem in dealing with a postmodern culture is defining our terms.  I doubt that a generation has ever been so flexible with language as this one.  One hundred years ago W.H. Griffith Thomas, combating German Rationalism, said, “We cannot in any degree be sure of the thought unless we can be […]
