  • 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.

    The year 2009 marks the 500th anniversary of the birth of John Calvin. A number of publishers are celebrating this 'Calvin Quincentennial' by releasing new books on the life, work, and teaching of Calvin.

  • Study Philosophy at Home with Ligonier Academy

    from Keith Mathison Jun 29, 2009 Category: Ligonier Academy

    Dr. Sproul has often remarked that his study of philosophy in college was crucial in helping him to counter the liberal theology he encountered in seminary.  Having studied philosophy, he was able to recognize the underlying ideas that shaped the thinking of his professors.  Our culture has been shaped by more than twenty centuries of philosophical reflection.  In order to address this culture, we must understand its way of thinking.
