THE DOCTRINE OF GOD

 

existenceandattributes1The Existence and Attributes of God – Stephen Charnock

Though written in the seventeenth century, The Existence and Attributes of God remains a classic, exhaustive treatment of the doctrine of God. Charnock reflects on Scripture to draw out its full implications for understanding the God of the Old and New Testaments. The practical aim of these meditations is godly living, so that increased knowledge leads naturally to greater obedience and more heartfelt worship.” In this book, Charnock meticulously works through the doctrines of God’s power, patience, holiness, wisdom, knowledge, dominion, goodness, and immutability.

 

 

 

 

knowinggod1Knowing God – J.I. Packer

Over one million copies sold. “If any work of Christian literature deserves the title of ‘contemporary classic,’ I believe that J.I. Packer’s Knowing God qualifies” D. James Kennedy J.I.

sovereigntyofgod1The Sovereignty of God – A. W. Pink

Who is regulating the affairs on this earth today – God, or the Devil? The substance of Arthur Pink’s answer to this provocative question is expressed in these words: “…though the world is panic-stricken, the word to the believer is, “Fear no!” ‘all things’ are moving in accord with His eternal purpose, and therefore, ‘all things’ are working together for good to them that love the Lord…” (Banner of Truth)

theapostolicpreaching1The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross – Leon Morris

The Apostolic Preaching of the Cross, a work that can now be placed among the modern classics of biblical scholarship, delves into the minds of the apostles when they used such words as “redeem”, “covenant”, “propitiate”, “reconcile”, and “justify” – concepts that remain central to the Christian faith today. The result of Morris’s careful background research is a lucid and rewarding study of the source of Christian theology – the death of Christ and the interpretation of its significance by the early church.

Filled with the Spirit of Pentecost, he writes, ‘the timid became bold, the selfish self-denied, the arrogant humble’, and he characterizes as ‘mischievous and misleading’ the opinion that the Church, having received the Paraclete, is no longer warranted to pray for effusions of transforming power today.

doctrineofrepentance1The Doctrine of Repentance – Thomas Watson

A good case could be made out for believing that ‘repentance’ is one of the least used words in the Christian church today.
