  • Doctrine of Scripture: Recommended Reading

    Our understanding of the nature and authority of Scripture is key to our theology. What we think of the Bible will have ramifications on what we think of everything else. What then are some helpful books for those seeking to understand the issues involved? While by no means exhaustive, here are some helpful texts for those interested in studying the issues in more detail. Keep Reading
  • Christ in the Old Testament

    from Keith Mathison Sep 15, 2009 Category: Articles

    Tolle Lege: Take Up and Read The relationship between the Mosaic covenant and the new covenant remains one of the most controversial and difficult topics in theology. As the notable American theologian Jonathan Edwards said, "There is perhaps no part of divinity attended with so much intricacy, and wherein orthodox divines do so much differ as stating the precise agreement and difference between the two dispensations of Moses and Christ." There are those who so emphasize either discontinuity or continuity that the problem is solved by oversimplifying it. Most Christians, however, recognize that there are elements of continuity as well as discontinuity. The difficulty arises when we attempt to be more exact. Keep Reading
  • Princeton vs. Mercersburg: Some Primary Sources

    from Keith Mathison Sep 10, 2009 Category: Articles

    Recently, I posted a blog on the nineteenth century debate between Charles Hodge and John Williamson Nevin regarding the Lord's Supper. In that blog, I posted links only to the documents related specifically to the Lord's Supper debate. It was suggested that it might be helpful to provide the links to some of the other primary source documents involved in the larger debate between Princeton Seminary and the Mercersburg theologians (John Williamson Nevin and Philip Schaff).

  • Systematic Theologies: Recommended Reading

    from Keith Mathison Sep 08, 2009 Category: Articles

    Recently, I completed a series of posts listing what I believe to be the most helpful commentaries on each book of the Bible. What I would like to do now is something similar with other biblical, theological, and historical topics. This will be, Lord willing, the first in a series of posts listing recommended books on a variety of topics. The first series of posts will cover the various topics under the heading of systematic theology. Keep Reading

    from Keith Mathison Aug 18, 2009 Category: Articles

    One of the premier Bible study software tools available today is Logos. Logos is perhaps best known for its digital library resources, but it has also made great strides in its original language research capabilities.

  • The Courage To Be Protestant

    from Keith Mathison Aug 17, 2009 Category: Articles

    In 1993, David Wells published a book entitled No Place For Truth: Or Whatever Happened to Evangelical Theology? This book was intended as a wake-up call to an evangelical church that had lost its way, having allowed modernity to replace Scripture as the primary shaper of its thought and practice. This book remains one of the most significant Christian books published in the latter half of the twentieth century. If you know a pastor or seminary student who has not read it, buy it as a gift for them. In his follow-up book, God in the Wasteland, Wells outlines some of the things that will have to be done in order to reverse the situation he described in the first book. In his third volume, Losing Our Virtue, Wells looks at the disintegrating moral culture in America and calls the church to face up to this challenge. The fourth volume in this series of books is entitled Above All Earthly Pow'rs: Christ in a Postmodern World. In this powerful book, Wells confronts postmodernism with the gospel of Christ.
