In Building a Bridge to the 18th Century, acclaimed cultural critic Neil Postman offers a cure for the hysteria and hazy values of the postmodern world.

Postman shows us how to reclaim that balance between mind and machine in a dazzling celebration of the accomplishments of the Enlightenment-from Jefferson's representative democracy to Locke's deductive reasoning to Rousseau's demand that the care and edification of children be considered an investment in our collective future. Here, too, is the bold assertion that Truth is invulnerable to fashion or the passing of time. Provocative and brilliantly argued, Building a Bridge to the 18th Century illuminates a navigable path through the Information Age-a byway whose signposts, it turns out, were there all along.

God Is Up to Something Big

The Bible dedicates more space to prophecy than to any other subject. These prophetic portions of Scripture have received an enormous amount of literary attention throughout the history of the church. Over the past fifty years alone countless books have been written about the biggest global trends of our day and whether they are signs of the coming end times. But one sign has been inexplicably neglected--revival. Wallace Henley believes such a spiritual awakening is not only possible today but probable--and likely a harbinger of the end times.

Where are we on the timeline of human history?Are we approaching the rapture of the church?

Henley presents a meticulously researched and compelling case that the Welsh Revival and the historical cycle revealed in God's redemptive interactions with nations, make it highly likely that our contemporary world is ripe for the lightning of another revival. Henley is confident that we will be a part of that worldwide event, perhaps moving all creation nearer to its sudden glorious conclusion and rebirth.

Abingdon Pillars of Theology is a series for the college and seminary classroom designed to help students grasp the basic and necessary facts, influence, and significance of major theologians. Written by noted scholars, these books outline the context, methodology, organizing principles, primary contributions, and key writings of people who have shaped theology as we know it today.

John Calvin (1509-1564) continues to be read and discussed because he illumines our human experience. Although inseparable from his context, Calvin's theology speaks for itself, thus identifying ways Calvin remains a living voice for those who struggle with the meaning of Christian faith.

Calvin & English Calvinism to 1649 Revised Edition

Sale 20% off
To this groundbreaking work, originally published by the Oxford University Press in the 1980s, the author has added a new preface and two appendices, one of which consists of extracts from Calvin's Commentaries. The author demonstrates that the English ""Puritans,"" who he calls ""experimental predestinarians,"" were followers of John Calvin's successor in Geneva, Theodore Beza, and not of Calvin himself. R. T. Kendall maintains that what became known as English Calvinism was largely the thought of Beza, not Calvin. His book is an important clarification of Calvin's position in relation to those who have been regarded as his followers. ""An epoch-making book!"" --Christianity Today ""I recommend Calvin and English Calvinism far and wide. It opened my eyes to who Calvin really was. I learned Calvin was not a Calvinist!"" --Luis Palau ""Dr. Kendall's exciting study . . . is a major step forward in the reappraisal of Puritanism . . . no student in the Puritan field can excuse himself from reckoning with this important contribution."" --J. I. Packer ""This is an important work of impressive scholarship which makes a considerable contribution to the history of ideas in England as well as to Reformed theology. In it Dr. Kendall penetrates through distorting layers of rigid Calvinism to reveal the authentic Calvin."" --T. F. Torrance ""An erudite and distinguished contribution."" --Church Times ""A breakthrough for those who reject particular redemption yet hold to the doctrines of grace. Read it and reap!"" --O. S. Hawkins Born in Ashland, Kentucky, R. T. Kendall became the Minister of Westminster Chapel, London in 1977 after gaining a DPhil at Oxford University. Currently he is President of R. T. Ministries. Married with two children, he is the author of several books including God Meant It for Good, a study of the life of Joseph, Does Jesus Care and Believing God.

John Calvin had a profound understanding of the atoning work of Christ. His writings are still one of the major sources scholars and others rely on to give insight into what was accomplished by Jesus on the cross.

In this book Robert Peterson first examines what Calvin says regarding the love of God, the Incarnation, and Christ's offices of prophet, priest and king. He goes on to consider Calvin's comments on other aspects of Christ's work: he is the second Adam, the victor, the substitute, the sacrifice and the example.

The church today is built on the Reformation's linguistic heritage yet is in danger of losing that strong foundation. Many seminaries no longer require that their students learn the Biblical languages for their divinity degrees - some do not even teach them! Yet these are the basic tools of any study of the Bible, and if we don't teach the Bible, then what is the church teaching?

If we need encouragement as to what can happen to our sermons and Bible study when we develop a knowledge of the languages that they are written in then Calvin is an excellent encourager. John Currid shows us how Calvin used a knowledge of the Biblical languages to provide richness, depth and accuracy to his understanding of scripture - and his exposition of it.

If you want to develop a deeper ability to understand and explain God's Word then let the two John's guide you!

It is the belief of the author that a significant change came about in the history of the church in the United Kingdom in the middle decades of the 20th century. It was by and large a recovery of something that had been a reality in the church in past generations. Step by step men were led to see what was missing in the type of Christianity that prevailed for the first half of the century and began to direct their minds back to the glories of past eras.

It is instructive to trace the various strands which were woven together in the providence of God to bring about the recovery. In most cases it was the discovery of some treasure of Christian literature from a spiritually-favoured age that set the person on the course he took. We find in the unfolding of history how the flame that burned in the heart of a man of God at one time is years later re-kindled in another as happened in the case of George Whitefield.
