Reviews - What do our customers think?
'I Have Chosen The Way Of Truth' Ps 119:30  Sep 21, 2007
'Much less frequently appreciated are the implications for how God has been pleased to reveal Himself - there is a redemptive-historical rationale not only for the content but for the giving of revelation as well. Revelation is focused on and indeed documents redemption. Revelatory word is tethered to redemptive deed. The former is a witness to the latter, and with the completion of the one follows the cessation of the other.' Pg 156 - 157

In defense of this compilation, one would inadequately portray their defense of the doctrine of Scripture. These godly men, some of whom have lived their lives in the defense of the Reformation, are an inspiration to all. Their theology is sound and lasting, so that the reader can expect to automatically capitulate to their high view of God and completed Scripture. These essays go against the modern age of pluralism, where anyone may say anything and retreat safely into the bunker of tolerance.

The protagonists of open-theism and continuationism, major 'isms' of an unbiblical kind, are dealt a heavy dose of scriptural truth. The Charismatic failure to attend to the whole counsel of God, by preferring extra-biblical `words' serves as a warning to us now, reminiscent of the Montanists, Marcionites and Gnostics as they were to the fledgling church, then.

'To be sure, the second-century heretics compelled the church to give its attention to the canon question.' Pg 135

'The activity of the church does not create the canon; the canon creates the church, and the church recognizes that canon (Gk for 'rule'). The viewpoint just expressed is sometimes called the a priori of faith.' Pg 138

'To what we have come, by this same rule walk, the same thing think.' Philippians 3:16 YLT 'And as many as by this rule do walk - peace be unto them!' Gal 6:16 YLT

'In the ancient world in which the Bible emerged, covenant renewal was marked by the issuance of new treaty documents. The outstanding example is the phenomenon of Deuteronomy (replacing Leviticus), which of course constituted God's renewal of the Sinai covenant with the new generation of Israel that was entering the land. We may even describe the NT as having a covenantal function. The Gospels and Acts function (as Genesis does) as historical prologue to the new covenant, in that they introduce respectively, the mediator and the ministers of the covenant, linking them with previous covenant witnesses. In this, the NT canon is seen to have a constitutive, even constitutional function. Indeed, by viewing the NT as God's housebuilding word and the community rule for the new covenant people, we find striking new conformation of the Reformation contention concerning the canon: namely, that the Scriptures form the church, not vice versa.' Pg 144 - 145

'The foundational witness (martyr) of the apostles to the work of Christ brings to light an important characteristic of all verbal revelation: the correlation between redemptive act and revelatory word; God's Word is given to attest and interpret His saving work. This correlation holds true throughout the entire history of redemption. The history of redemption has an epochal character - high points in redemptive history are accompanied by copious outpourings of verbal revelation. Times of inactivity in the history of redemption are, correlatively, times of silence in the history of revelation. Accordingly, following the contemporaneous outpouring of revelation focused on the first coming of Christ, the history of revelation lapses into silence. Confirming that silence is the disappearance of the apostolate, that prophetic institution established by Christ specifically to provide revelatory attestation and interpretation of the redemption consummated in His Person and work.' Pg 147 - 148

God has truly blessed us with the means of grace that these men uphold in this volume. This book and the authors entirely evince my theological views and encourage those who need to hear of God's Sovereignty and Christ's sufficiency again. A truly theological masterpiece!

'When theological reflection takes place in isolation from historical investigation, the former becomes abstracts and speculative.' Pg 137
A Must Read!  Feb 19, 2006
This is a compilation of essays by some of our times greatest theologians. It is one of those books that is required reading from cover to cover - I would not recommend one missed word - not even the TWO Forewards, Introduction, the Afterword and notes! More than anything these authors properly define and categorize Evangelicalism; challenge Postmodernism and expose Open-Theism. My absolute favorite essay in this work was Joseph Pipa's essay "Preaching: Still the Holy Spirit's Major Medium". I know this book may come across as somewhat restricted, however, it handles our times in such an absolutely necessary manner that I would not be speaking flippantly when I say that this work is Life Changing and socially ground breaking! MUST READ.
excellent essays  Nov 7, 2001
Under the banner of evangelicalism, people are promoting an "open theism" that attempts to rid Protestantism of its belief in the sovereignty and omniscience of God. In Whatever Happened to the Reformation?, a number of scholars, including Drs. R.C. Sproul, John MacArthur, Bruce Ware, and R. Fowler White, have come together to provide a strong and reasoned response to this modern-day heresy - a response rooted in the Reformation.
