Determined to Believe? is written for those who are interested in or even troubled by questions about God's sovereignty and human freedom and responsibility. John Lennox writes in the spirit of helping people to come to grips with the biblical treatment of this issue for themselves. In this comprehensive review of the topic of theological determinism, Lennox seeks firstly to define the problem, looking at the concepts of freedom, the different kinds of determinism, and the moral problems these pose. He then equips the reader with biblical teaching on the topic and explores the spectrum of theological opinion on it. Following this, Lennox delves deeper into the Gospels and then investigates what we can learn regarding determinism and responsibility from Paul's discussion in Romans on God's dealings with Israel. Finally Lennox tackles the issue of Christian assurance. This nuanced and detailed study challenges some of the widely held assumptions in the area of theological determinism and brings a fresh perspective to the debate.

    "Great biblical truths are meant not only for our intellectual acceptance, but for our spiritual health." -Dr. Al Mohler
    More faulty information about God swirls around us today than ever before. No wonder so many followers of Christ are unsure of what they really believe in the face of the new spiritual openness attempting to alter unchanging truth.
    For centuries the church has taught and guarded the core Christian beliefs that make up the essential foundations of the faith. But in our postmodern age, sloppy teaching and outright lies create rampant confusion, and many Christians are free-falling for "feel-good" theology.
    We need to know the truth to save ourselves from errors that will derail our faith.
    As biblical scholar, author, and president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Dr. Albert Mohler, writes, "The entire structure of Christian truth is now under attack." With wit and wisdom he tackles the most important aspects of these modern issues:
    Is God changing His mind about "sin"?
    Why is hell off limits for many pastors?
    What's good or bad about the "dangerous" emergent movement?
    Have Christians stopped seeing God as God?
    Is the social justice movement misguided?
    Could the role of beauty be critical to our theology?
    Is liberal faith any less destructive than atheism?
    Are churches pandering to their members to survive?
    In the age-old battle to preserve the foundations of faith, it's up to a new generation to confront and disarm the contemporary shams and fight for the truth. Dr. Mohler provides the scriptural answers to show you how.

    When Jesus died on the cross, it seemed that all had been lost. Death had won. But after three days in a rich man's tomb, Jesus appeared...alive! The news was so shocking that His followers refused to believe it until they saw Him with their own eyes and touched His wounds with their own hands. Then Jesus made an amazing claim: In the future, they too would have resurrected bodies like His, bodies that would never deteriorate, age or perish. They would have new life without death or pain in the presence of a loving God forever. But can we really believe His promise? For that matter, can we really believe that the promise was made by a Man who rose from the dead? In this fascinating look at the claims of the Gospel writers and 2,000 years of believing Christians, bestselling author Josh McDowell and his son Sean examine the compelling evidence and conclude that Jesus Christ conquered death and the gravel in clear, concise and accessible chapters, Josh and Sean present the fact s about the resurrection and what it means for readers today.

    For more than forty years, Evidence That Demands a Verdict has convinced skeptics of the Bible's reliability, helped believers articulate their faith, and given them the vital facts they need to defend God's Word and lead others to faith in Jesus.

    In this video Bible study, based on the completely updated and expanded classic, Josh and his son, Sean, focus on Jesus and the Gospels.

    Theology needs to engage what recent developments in the study of evolution mean for how we understand moral behavior. How does the theological concept of holiness connect to contemporary understandings of evolution? If genetic explanations of altruism fall short, what role should we give to environmental explanations and free will? Likewise, how do genetic explanations relate to theological accounts of human goodness and holiness? In this groundbreaking work, Matthew Hill uses the lens of Wesleyan ethics to offer a fresh assessment of the intersection of evolution and theology. He shows that what is at stake in this conversation is not only the future of the church but also the fine-tuning of human evolution.

    Christians throughout history have believed that God reveals himself both through Scripture and nature. The metaphor of God's Two Books is often used to represent these two divine revelations.

    The Book of God's Words is the Bible. Scripture reveals inerrant spiritual truths. These include, the God of Christianity is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, the creation is very good, and only humans are created in the Image of God (Gen. 1:1, 27, 31).

    The Book of God's Works is the physical world. Nature declares God's glory, eternal power, and divine nature (Ps. 19:1; Rom. 1:20). Through the gift of science, our Creator has blessed us with the ability to explore and understand the structure, operation, and origin of his creation.

    Together God's Two Books offer us a complementary divine revelation of who created the world and how he created it.

    A majority of Americans view science and religion as being in conflict, according to the Pew Research Center. Christians and non-Christians alike share this view, yet if this perceived conflict misrepresents the relationship between modern science and Christian faith, then it is both unhelpful and unnecessary today.

    In Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes, theologian and scientist Denis O. Lamoureux reviews several options for embracing biblical Christianity and findings of science, including biological evolution. Holding to a high view of Scripture alongside an expert appreciation for scientific discovery, Lamoureux further outlines a way to understand passages referring to the natural world in the Bible and also demonstrates how modern science can point toward God.

    Lamoureux shares his own story along the way, recounting struggles many readers will relate to on his journey toward PhDs in both theology and biology and a fruitful relationship between the two.

    Topics in this book include:

  • A biblical model of intelligent design in nature based on Psalm 19 and Romans 1.
  • Examination of the ancient science in Scripture, such as a flat earth and 3-tier universe.
  • Comparison of different Christian views on origins--young earth creation, progressive creation (old earth creation), and evolutionary creation.
  • Criticisms of the atheistic interpretation of evolution held by Richard Dawkins and his belief that intelligent design is merely an illusion.
  • Galileo's peaceful relationship between Scripture and nature, including his view that "the intention of the Holy Spirit [in the Bible] is to teach us how one goes to heaven, and not how heaven goes."
  • Darwin's religious beliefs and evidence of the impact that intelligent design had on him throughout his life, along with his claim, "It seems to me absurd to doubt that a man may be an ardent Theist [personal God] and an evolutionist."
  • Believers wanting to honor God's Two Books--Scripture and Nature--faithfully and without conflict will find an excellent introduction in Evolution: Scripture and Nature Say Yes.

    Presented with energy and humor, this up-to-date resource pulls no punches in its conclusion. All aspects of humanity that make us unique among life-forms, argues Poppe, were designed and implemented at the will of a supernatural Being. This is where the evidence points.

    With a special gift for helpful analogies, good examples, and clear explanations, the author blows the lid off Darwinian myths surrounding issues like evidence for prehistoric man structures and behaviors thought to be remnants of earlier evolutionary steps the beginning of speech the origin of morality

    "Highly readable for anyone with a general background and superb for students and parents, as well as homeschoolers and educators who wish to present a complete picture of origins science."

    John Ortberg demonstrates how doubt is very much a part of faith and how uncertainty can lead to trust. 'The beliefs that really matter, ' he writes, 'are the ones that guide our behavior.' We all hope, Ortberg writes, but we cannot hope without faith, and so we must not hope for something but someone?Jesus Christ
