This book is for the serious Christian following the Biblical encouragement to ?be a good servant of Jesus Christ, constantly nourished on the words of the faith and of sound doctrine? (1 Tim. 4:6). In a world of malnourished Christians, Dr. Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr., leads hungry believers to solid food so that they might grow in grace. He provides a banquet of nourishing entrees too seldom found on the menu of the modern evangelical church, to help you grow in your understanding of the:
Significance of creeds for framing the Christian faith
Covenantal importance of infant baptism
Biblical argument for baptismal sprinkling
Error of modern tongues-speaking
Method for Biblical apologetics
Biblical warrant for six day creation
Confessional endorsement of God?s Law
Basic meaning of the Book of Revelation
This book is created for all serious Christians desiring to dig deeper into the Bible and find the truth, as the Truth will set us free. We need to be consuming the meat and not just the milk of theology. Wisdom is the principle thing, so says the Word of God; it comes from the fear of the Lord, from knowledge (Epistemology), understanding of reality (Ontology) and God?'s Law (Theonomy), developing our faith by the hearing and reading of God?'s revelation. Together we dig for God?'s nuggets of gold.Dr. Kenneth Gentry, an astute, brilliant Bible Scholar and devoted man of God, helps the reader find those golden nuggets dissecting, comparing Scripture with Scripture, deciphering the context and time of events all in a systematic theological manner empowered by the Holy Spirit. His background in the Reformed tradition of the faith (see About the Author ), his intentional deep study of Holy Writ and his precise and gentle, loving style of communicating, makes this book a must for students who want to follow Jesus lovingly, obediently and wisely.Here is a tiny sampling of the tasty morsels you will discover in this book from Dr. Gentry?'s informed pen: A growing understanding of the Bible comes only through reading it, systematizing it, studying it, hearing it expounded and applying it. (Chapter One, page 8) The fact that the truth of Scripture is of no private interpretation is a foundational principle of creedal theology. No interpreter of Scripture works alone; we all must build on the past labors of godly predecessors. (Chapter One, page 10) Reformed Christians are a people of The Book. We firmly believe that both the Old and New Testaments are God-breathed and profitable for God?'s people. Though we may easily discern obvious progress and development in Scripture, the Bible is, nevertheless, one Book. (Chapter Two, page 16) Actually the defense of Christianity is simple: we argue the impossibility of the contrary. Those who assault the Christian system must actually assume the Christian system to do so. In fact, atheism assumes theism. (Chapter Five, page 90) But I believe this] sufficiently demonstrates the validity of the Westminster Confession, which declares: It pleased God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, for the manifestation of the glory of His eternal power, wisdom and goodness, in the beginning, to create or make of nothing, the world and all things therein whether visible or invisible, in the space of six days; and all very good. (Chapter Six, page 99) Thus, the theme of Revelation is the execution of God?'s divorce decree against Israel, her subsequent capital punishment and cremation, followed by His turning to take a new bride, the Church. (Chapter Eight, page 153)My personal gratitude to Dr. Ken Gentry for allowing us to republish his work in one volume, dispensing sound exegetical expository of Holy Scripture, helping all of us to learn, grow and enjoy this Nourishment from the Word in these Select Studies in Reformed Doctrine all to the glory of God. As Dr. Gentry affirms in his initial chapter: It is fundamentally necessary to hold as one?'s credo: I believe Jesus is Lord. Gerald Christian Nordskog, Publisher
