Lectures in Systematic Theology, Volume 2, The Doctrine of Man

Greg Nichols, edited by Rob Ventura

What does the Bible say about the nature of God? What does the Bible say about creation, providence, and sin? We simply cannot answer these questions by going to a single chapter of a single book of the Bible. Rather, we must search Genesis to Revelation to uncover God’s complete answer to these questions. And Nichols has spent years doing just that, and, now, with the release of these books, we have all his vast research of the Scriptures at our finger tips.

Predominance of the Fear of God in Biblical Thought

the-forgotten-fearAlbert N. Martin

The fear of God is one of the great and dominant themes of Holy Scripture. However, it is a subject concerning which there is almost total silence in our day. It is a theme that was very prominent both in the thinking and in the preaching of our forefathers. It is interesting that, when our spiritual forefathers desired to describe someone who was marked by unusual godliness, they would often call him a “God-fearing man.”

Under the title, on the title page, was the description, “Sometime Fellow of Emanuel College in Cambridge; now Preacher of the Word of God at Yarmouth.” These volumes were printed twenty-one years before the death of this great Congregational Puritan preacher. Upon beginning the search for biographical material a startling discovery was made.

In recent years, a doctrinal shift has taken place among believers so great that even the secular press has taken notice. Christians across denominational lines are laying hold of the biblical truth of God’s electing love and saving grace in Christ, commonly called ‘Calvinism.’ For many, this marks the beginning of a deeper study into the whole counsel of God in Scripture.

Interview on A Puritan Theology

a-puritan-theologyIn A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life, Joel Beeke and Mark Jones offer a substantial gift to the church. An “overview of Puritan thought concerning Scripture’s major doctrines, historically and systematically considered,” this groundbreaking volume covers fifty areas of doctrine, highlights the work of numerous theologians, and concludes with eight chapters exploring Puritan “theology in practice.” After all, the authors write, the “distinctive character of Puritanism was its quest for a life reformed by the Word of God.” Given that no previous work has ever woven the threads of Puritan teaching into a unified tapestry of systematic theology, A Puritan Theology is a remarkable achievement.
