Political Polytheism

Thus , it is not surprising that Schaeffer's halfway covenant apologetics led to
confusion . Nor is it surprising that , as Baird remarks , that Schaeffer " always
seemed uncomfortable when cornered on the question of his apologetic

his book, by a Methodist minister with wide experience of churches in Britain and abroad, has arisen out of a consuming interest in the ecumenical movement in England over a period of years. Written in an open and attractive way, it describes the history of relations between churches since their earlier divisions, and focusses particularly on the situation at the present time. Was the church united in New Testament times, and what were the problems which caused divisions? After looking at these questions against the background of the early church and the Reformation, David Butler then looks at beliefs which have so often been in conflict in the past as they appear to others. What are the 'strange ideas' of Protestants and Catholics and why is each side so suspicious of the other? Why can't Anglicans and Methodists agree, and what about Catholics and Anglicans, Methodists and Catholics? Of course great progress has been made, and in particular growing convergence on understanding the Bible is highlighted, and the reconciliation over Reformation controversies is noted. There are also chapters on most recent ecumenical developments and on ecumenical spirituality. Then comes a description of the new scene: the role of the Black churches in the ecumenical movement, and the contribution of the Pentecostal and charismatic movements. Here is a book which any Christian can understand, and its infectious enthusiasm brings to life a vital cause which to some seems to have got bogged down with impasses or dulled by uninspiring statements reading perilously like bureaucracy.

In Covenant Theology, author Jeong Koo Jeon makes a much-needed contribution to 21st century biblical and systematic theology. He explores the debate between John Murray and Meredith G. Kline, placing their ideas in the larger context of Biblical studies that have had a direct influence on Reformed theology and evangelicalism. Although the theologies of Murray and Kline contain significant differences, they both maintain a distinction between a covenant of creation and a covenant of grace. In addition, they both advocate a fundamental antithesis between law and gospel, giving a priority to law over gospel in the temporal and logical order of divine works. Jeon sees these distinctions as hermeneutic tools that are essential for better understanding of biblical revelation as well as faith, grace, and atonement.

Challenging the dominant Van Tillian approach in Reformed apologetics, this book by a leading expert in contemporary Reformed theology sets forth the principles that undergird a classic Reformed approach. J. V. Fesko's detailed exegetical, theological, and historical argument takes as its starting point the classical Reformed understanding of the "two books" of God's revelation: nature and Scripture. Believers should always rest on the authority of Scripture but also can and should appeal to the book of nature in the apologetic task.

The Love You Had at First

You will recall that Jesus addressed Ephesus first in Revelation 2:1. Why? Because love is the most important issue of all. Faith, hope and love now remain; but the greatest of these is love (1 Cor. 13).

The Love You Had At First is written for those that deeply desire to please God. In it the author traces the humble beginnings of the church at Ephesus from her infancy- into her prime years- only to discover that she had left her first love. Although she enjoyed the teaching and influence of great men of God like Paul, John and Timothy she still left her first love. How could that happen? They were in the best position for success of all the churches in Asia Minor. You will recall that Jesus addressed Ephesus first in Revelation 2:1. Why? Because love is the most important issue of all. Faith, hope and love now remain; but the greatest of these is love (1 Cor. 13). Without faith it is impossible to please God says the writer to the Hebrews; what about love that is greater than faith? Pleasing God means our affections are predominantly towards Him. Simply put, we are to love the Lord with all of our heart, soul, mind and strength. What happens when we begin to take the love that belongs to God and give it to other things? We leave the love we had for God. This makes a Christian cold towards God and man. In an age where the emphasis of mainstream Christianity seems to be on all kinds of subjects, this book seeks to turn our attention back to a time much like our own, when the love that belonged to God and our neighbor was being given to a host of unworthy things. More than anything else, God wants us to love Him with all of our being and to love our neighbor as ourselves. What does that mean? How can we get back there? If we fail in this regard, everything else is utterly meaningless. Join us as we discover the insightful history of how Ephesus began in love, was built up in love, left her first love- repented and rediscovered her first love.

In an analysis that will help give direction to future studies of apologetics, Mayers presents a framework that does justice to both the a priori person of God and the a posteriori work of God in creation and revelation. He shows the interdependence of both evidentialism and presuppositionalism without compromising the essentials of either. - back cover.
