Description : Recent Barna research indicates that less than one in ten evangelical Christians hold a biblical worldview. A World of Difference seeks to change this disturbing fact by educating readers on how the Christian perspective is uniquely reasonable, verifiable, and liveable. Author Kenneth Richard Samples faced a profound test of his own belief system during a personal life-and-death crisis. In A World of Difference, he uses nine distinct tests to compare the Christian worldview with current religious and philosophical competitors, including Islam, postmodernism, naturalism, and pantheistic monism. Samples tackles tough issues through this in-depth study of Christianity's history, creed, and philosophical basis. An excellent resource for readers who want their view of life and the world to make sense.

Description : This Is Your Life is about the journey to the center of your mind (Twilight Zone music in the background). Well maybe not quite the center, but it challenges the premise that we are mechanical beings living in a mechanical world. Contrary to the popular cultural voice that says, "Resistance is futile, assimilated you will be . . ." (Yoda), people are tired, broken, and poor from living in this Marxist socialist paradise. If we can reclaim a true definition of liberty, perhaps we can achieve a Modern Reformation. The human experience we call life is mind, body, and spirit. If any one of these is missing, we die. Our culture has been trying to convince us for decades that we are mind and body, but without any spirit. People have been treated as if they were automobiles to be driven, manipulated, and finally discarded when their benefits run out. The results of this philosophy have been disastrous. The fruits of Marxist philosophy today are the same as they have been throughout history: to lie, steal, kill, and destroy, leaves death in its wake and itself ultimately self-destructs in a suicidal fit of rage. A Christian philosophy will emerge out of the ash heap, hopefully sooner rather than later. We must recognize that every human being is different than every other person who has ever been. We are like a microcosm, an entire universe contained in this human body. The spiritual realm is more real than the physical realm and twice as dangerous. Unless we wish to continue living like a zombie (in mind and body denying the spirit), we must understand the spiritual aspect in order to experience true life. This Is Your life recognizes the fact that we all have an appointment with Revelation 20:12, "And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And they were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done." The books are our life stories. We are all writing a book, and each day is another page in our book. The good, the bad and the ugly, it's all there. The book of life is also there. There was a show from the 1960s and '70s called This Is Your Life. The host Ralph Edwards always had a book in his hand. He would walk up to the person being highlighted and say, "So and so, this is your life." They would have events and people from their past and things on their life journey that helped make them who they were. This is how one might imagine it could be when we stand before the Lord.

Description : Theology disconnected from mission is not Christian theology at all. The pastors, professors, and missionaries writing Theology and Practice of Mission provide a clear biblical-theological framework for understanding the church's mission to the nations. Toward that goal, the book holds three major sections: God's mission, the church's mission, and the church's mission to the nations. Part one explores the canon of Christian Scripture from narrative and systematic angles, explaining how the mission of God-to redeem a people who will be a kingdom of priests to the praise of his glory, bear witness to his gospel, advance his church, and dwell with him forever on a new heaven and earth-is communicated in the Bible's four movements: Creation, Fall, Redemption, and Restoration. Part two sees the mission of God's people in the light of God's mission, emphasizing not only preaching and church planting but also gospel witness in every dimension of human culture-glorifying God in family, church, work, community, through the arts, sciences, education, business, and the public square. The writers encourage us to live missionally, leaving all of our resources at God's disposal for the sake of his kingdom. Finally, part three contends that the North American church must come to terms with its missional calling-just as international missionaries do-and gives a starting point and parameters for conceiving the church's mission to all people groups and cultural contexts. Chapters here include ones on unreached people groups, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Postmoderns.

Description : The starting point for the dissertation is John Calvin's keen interest in what the Scriptures teach about the nature and faculties of human beings, as well as their role and responsibility under God's authority. For Calvin, the proper way to understand human beings is to begin by considering them as they were originally created, that is, made in the image and likeness of God (Gen 1:26-27). How successful, though, was Calvin in articulating a clear and consistent understanding of the imago Dei? This question cannot be answered without giving due consideration to the historical context in which Calvin laboured. After all, the reformers were not the only ones who were reconsidering the nature and the dignity of human beings in the sixteenth century. The Renaissance humanists were also pondering this matter. In addition to this broad context of humanism, there were also other contexts within which Calvin developed his anthropology, for instance, his interaction with Philipp Melanchthon and Heinrich Bullinger, as well as his polemics with Andreas Osiander and Michael Servetus. The dissertation examines Calvins's explanation of the imago Dei within the times and ecclesiastical circumstances in which he lived. Dr. Van Vliet aims at giving a satisfactory answer to the question of whether Calvin's teaching on the imago Dei can be considered one of the stronger or weaker points of his reformatory work.

Description : Let us make no mistake about it. Evangelism is not simply learning Bible facts. Evangelism is not simply understanding sociological information. Evangelism is taking part in God's great work of redeeming the world through Christ. It is to reach out and allow God's power and presence to extend into the lives of people through our daily lives. When we increasingly become aware of God working within us, the result will be joy -- joy in our daily tasks and joy in the lives we touch. Wherever God's will is done, the ultimate result for us will be joy.

Description : In the mid nineteenth century, Reformed churchmen John Nevin and Philip Schaff launched a fierce attack on the reigning subjectivist and rationalist Protestantism of their day, giving birth to what is known as the "Mercersburg Theology." Their attempt to recover a high doctrine of the sacraments and the visible Church, among other things, led them into bitter controversy with Charles Hodge of Princeton Seminary, as well as several other prominent contemporaries. This book examines the contours of the disagreement between Mercersburg and Hodge, focusing on four loci in particular-Christology, ecclesiology, sacramentology, and church history. W. Bradford Littlejohn argues that, despite certain weaknesses in their theological method, the Mercersburg men offered a more robust and historically grounded paradigm for the Reformed faith than did Hodge. In the second part of the book, Littlejohn explores the value of the Mercersburg Theology as a bridgehead for ecumenical dialogue, uncovering parallels between Nevin's thought and prominent themes in Anglican, Catholic, and Orthodox theology, as well as recent debates within Reformed theology. This thorough study of one of the most creative movements in American theology offers an alluring vision of the quest for Reformed catholicity that is more relevant today than ever.

Description : Modern Psychopathologies is addressed to students and mental health professionals who want to sort through contemporary secular understandings of psychopathology in relation to a Christian worldview. Written by well-known and respected scholars, this book provides an introduction to a set of disorders along with overviews of current research on etiology, treatment and prevention. Prior chapters explore the classification of disorders in historic pastoral care and contemporary mental health care. The authors explain the biological and sociocultural foundations of mental illness, and reflect on the relation between psychopathology and the Christian understanding of sin. Modern Psychopathologies is a unique and valuable resource for Christians studying psychology and counseling or providing counseling services, pastoral care, Christian healing ministries or spiritual direction. The revised second edition is fully updated according to DSM-V and ICD-10. The authors have expanded the analysis to include problems associated with trauma, gender, addiction and more. Though fully capable of standing on its own, the book is a useful companion volume to Modern Psychotherapies by Stanton L. Jones and Richard E. Butman.

Description : Recent research in the philosophy of religion, anthropology, and philosophy of mind has prompted the need for a more integrated, comprehensive, and systematic theology of human nature. This project constructively develops a theological accounting of human persons by drawing from a Cartesian (as a term of art) model of anthropology, which is motivated by a long tradition. As was common among patristics, medievals, and Reformed Scholastics, Farris draws from philosophical resources to articulate Christian doctrine as he approaches theological anthropology. Exploring a substance dualism model, the author highlights relevant theological texts and passages of Scripture, arguing that this model accounts for doctrinal essentials concerning theological anthropology. While Farris is not explicitly interested in thorough critique of materialist ontology, he notes some of the significant problems associated with it. Rather, the present project is an attempt to revitalize the resources found in Cartesianism by responding to some common worries associated with it.

Description : Everyone has a worldview. A worldview is the lens through which we interpret the cosmos and our lives in it. A worldview answers the big questions of life: What is our nature? What is our world? What is our problem? What is our end? As Anderson, Clark and Naugle point out, our worldview cannot simply be reduced to a series of rational beliefs. We are creatures of story, and the kinds of story we tell reveal important things about our worldview. Part of being a thoughtful Christian is to understand and express the Christian worldview. It also means developing an awareness of the variety of worldviews. An Introduction to Christian Worldview explores answers to questions such as Why do worldviews matter? What characterizes a Christian worldview? How can we analyse and describe a worldview? What are the most common secular and religious worldviews? Well organized, clearly written and featuring aids for learning, An Introduction to Christian Worldview is the essential text for either the classroom or personal study. ‘Readily accessible . . . a valuable resource for all Christians who desire a deeper understanding of the conceptual foundations of our faith.’ Steve Wilkens, Professor of Philosophy and Ethics, Azusa Pacific University
