Long before George H. W. Bush spoke of a kinder, gentler America-almost fifty years before to be exact-American evangelicals had tried to fashion a less abrasive and more affirming version of their faith. The year was 1924 and a variety of fundamentalists assembled to put aside acrimony and mudslinging, and to put forward a positive […]

Few pursuits in life are more important than the pursuit of truth. What one believes to be true, especially about God, humanity, and the relation between them, will govern one's entire life-thoughts, affections, attitudes, actions, desires, and decisions.

Martin Luther (1483-1546) Luther is credited as the founder of the German Reformation. Luther's study of the writings of the Apostle Paul and Augustine of Hippo led him to the belief that men and women could only be justified by the grace of God, through faith rather than through good works or religious observances. Luther's […]

David Wells's No Place for Truth may have been the most important book about Evangelicalism published in the 1990s. For instance, reading it influenced James Montgomery Boice and played a part in the formation of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and later the signers of the Cambridge Declaration (1996). In No Place for Truth, Wells […]

The current controversy over the doctrine of justification touches upon several interrelated questions beginning with the nature of Judaism as the Apostle Paul experienced it, covenant theology, and the doctrine of justification.

I was enticed to read this book on account of its title, or even more so, its subtitle. Before I acquired the book I pondered the subtitle and how I might respond. I imagined Wetterling's focus would be on law verses like "No thief shall enter the kingdom of heaven." Does Scripture mean this when […]

"I know that it is pretty much an old saw that images are the books of the uneducated… But … the prophets totally condemn the notion, taken as axiomatic by the papists, that images stand in place of books." (Institutes, Book 1, Chapter 11, Section 5) With these words, John Calvin expresses what has been […]
