Theologia et Apologia
$40.00
Theologia et Apologia gathers together eighteen essays, written by a wide range of scholars, on Reformation theology and its defense. Orthodox theology, grounded in the Scriptures, calls humanity to believe. This same theology must also be presented and defended to a world that has often not attended to its vital message. Collectively, these essays teach and defend the biblical theology articulated during the Reformation and still today. They address topics including the inspiration, canon, and interpretation of Scripture, Reformation era developments, classic and modern apologetics, and other topics. This helpful book, honoring Rod Rosenbladt, a notable theologian and apologist, is a welcome addition to the library of any thinking Christian. Rod Rosenbladt is Professor of Theology and Christian Apologetics at Concordia University Irvine. He is one of the co-hosts of the nationally syndicated radio program, The White Horse Inn. Adam S.

Theology of Post-Reformation Lutheranism, Volume 2 POD (God and His Creation)

0
Theology of Post-Reformation Lutheranism, Volume 2 POD (God and His Creation)
$42.99

This book discusses classical contributions to two major articles of faith: the doctrine of God and the doctrine of creation. The author presents a thorough analysis, drawing from the works of prominent theologians of the period from 1577 to 1713, including Chemnitz, Selnecker, Mentzer, Gerhard, Quenstedt, and Hollaz. Because of his focus on doctrine and methodology, Preus is able to give a fair picture of classical Lutheran theology as a whole.


The first section of the book on the doctrine of God explores the knowledge of God, His existence and essence, His attributes, and the triune nature of God.


In the second section, Preus examines the doctrine of creation, discussing practical applications of the orthodox view of divine providence and the eschatological overtones.


The final section is an outline of orthodox theologians' attitudes toward emerging scientific cosmologies and describes implications of the modern scientific picture for Lutheran theology.

Theology of the Lutheran Confessions
$35.99
In this classic new edition, a translation of "Theologie Der Lutherischen Bekennt-nisschriften, Edmund Schlink points the reader to Scripture as the basis of the Lutheran Confessions. They are neither "just" historical documents nor merely expressions of a philosophy. They remain the church's summary exposition of Scripture, upon which members must take a stand. This volume helps the informed reader of Scripture and the Confessions take that stand.

Theology of the Presence and Absence of God

Theology of the Presence and Absence of God
$49.99

In a consumer-driven and technologized world, can we still experience the mystery of God? This book answers yes by exploring the rich resources of the Christian tradition of thinking and speaking about God. Focusing on God's dialectical character--divine availability ("presence") and divine excess ("absence")--and the belief that "God is love" (1 John 4:16), professor Anthony J. Godzieba tracks how God became a problem in Western culture, then responds by showing how human experience is open to divine transcendence and how that openness encounters the revelation of God as Trinity. The book's contemporary edge comes from its insistence that belief as embodied performance is the most authentic way to participate in the mystery of God's love, which is "the answer to the mystery of the world and human beings" (Walter Kasper).

Understanding Four Views on the Lord's Supper

Understanding Four Views on the Lord's Supper
$16.99

The Lord's Supper has been the central and characteristic action of the church at worship. But there are still many ways of understanding it and many questions surrounding this meal...

Who should participate in the Lord's Supper? How frequently should we observe it? What does this meal mean? What happens when we eat the bread and drink from the cup? What do Christians disagree about and what do they hold in common?

These and other questions are explored in this volume of the fair-minded, informative Counterpoints series. Contributors make a case for one of the following views:

  • Baptist view (memorialism)
  • Reformed view (spiritual presence)
  • Lutheran view (consubstantiation)
  • Roman Catholic view (transubstantiation)
  • All contributors use Scripture to present their views, and each responds to the others' essays. Included are resources for understanding the topic further, such as:

  • A listing of statements on the Lord's Supper from creeds and confessions
  • Quotations from noted Christians
  • A resource listing of books on the Lord's Supper
  • Discussion questions for each chapter to facilitate small group and classroom use
  • The Counterpoints series presents a comparison and critique of scholarly views on topics important to Christians that are both fair-minded and respectful of the biblical text. Each volume is a one-stop reference that allows readers to evaluate the different positions on a specific issue and form their own, educated opinion.

    Universe Next Door: A Basic Wordview Catalog 6th Ed.
    $35.00

    For more than forty years, The Universe Next Door has set the standard for a clear, readable introduction to worldviews. Using his widely influential model of eight basic worldview questions, James Sire examines prominent worldviews that have shaped the Western world:

  • theism
  • deism
  • naturalism
  • Marxism
  • nihilism
  • existentialism
  • Eastern monism
  • New Age philosophy
  • postmodernism
  • Islam
  • Intertwined with this analysis, he presents an overview of intellectual history giving insight into the current state of Western thought and culture. Critiquing each worldview within its own frame of reference and in comparison to others, Sire encourages readers to wrestle with life's biggest questions and examine the core beliefs and commitments on which they are building their lives

    The sixth edition, updated by Sire's longtime editor Jim Hoover, features new explanatory sidebars, helpful charts comparing worldviews and illustrating their historical flow, and a chapter on challenges to a Christian worldview in the twenty-first century. New discussion questions will help readers reflect more deeply on the ideas in each chapter.

    The Universe Next Door has been translated into over a dozen languages and has been used as a text at over one hundred colleges and universities in courses ranging from apologetics and world religions to history and English literature. In a world of ever-increasing diversity, The Universe Next Door offers a unique resource for understanding the variety of worldviews that claim the allegiance of mind and heart.

    Was the Reformation a Mistake?: Why Catholic Doctrine Is Not Unbiblical

    Was the Reformation a Mistake?: Why Catholic Doctrine Is Not Unbiblical
    $16.99

    Was the Reformation a mistake?

    In its actual historical context, it hardly seems fair to call the Reformation a mistake. In 1517, the Church was in need of a spiritual and theological reform. The issues raised by Renaissance humanism - and by the profound corruption of the Church's leaders, the Avignon papacy, and the Great Schism in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries - lingered unresolved. What were key theological problems that led to the Reformation?

    Theologian Matthew Levering helps readers see these questions from a Catholic perspective. Surveying nine key themes - Scripture, Mary, the Eucharist, the Seven Sacraments, monasticism, justification and merit, purgatory, saints, and papacy - he examines the positions of Martin Luther and makes a case that the Catholic position is biblically defensible once one allows for the variety of biblically warranted modes of interpreting Scripture. At the same time, Levering makes clear that he cannot prove the Catholic case.

    The book concludes with a spirited response by mere Protestant theologian Kevin J. Vanhoozer.

    Why I Am a Lutheran
    $17.99
    A blend of understandable explanations and real-life stories. "Why I Am a Lutheran explores the foundational teachings of the Christian church. In each chapter, Daniel Preus calls upon more than 20 years of pastoral experience to reveal Jesus as the center of the Christian faith. As he addresses central doctrines such as sin and grace, Law and Gospel, the person and work of Jesus Christ, worship, the Sacraments, and the office of the ministry, Preus keeps the focus on Jesus Christ--who is "always and only at the center of all Christian teaching."

    Hermann Sasse spoke with a lucid and often prophetic voice in the dark years of Hitler's rule in Germany and its disastrous aftermath. His sermons sounded forth for all who would hear him the heart and core of confessional Lutheran theology: Christ Jesus crucified for sinners. Biblical and timely, Sasse still calls out to the Church today through this translation. All those who take the time to listen will be richly blessed through his faithfulness to the Scriptures, insights into the hearts of men and the grace of the Savior, and his deep knowledge of the history of the Christ's Church.

    Wonderfully Made: A Protestant Theology of the Body
    $27.99

    Why do we have bodies?


    When it comes to thinking about our bodies, confusion reigns. In our secular age, there has been a loss of the body's goodness, purpose, and end. Many people, driven by shame and idolatry, abuse their body through self-harm or self-improvement. How can we renew our understanding and see our bodies the way God does?


    In Wonderfully Made, John Kleinig forms a properly biblical theology of our bodies. Through his keen sensitivity to Scripture's witness, Kleinig explains why bodies matter. While sin has corrupted our bodies and how we think of them, God's creation is still good. Thus, our bodies are good gifts. The Son took on a body to redeem our bodies. Kleinig addresses issues like shame, chastity, desire, gender dysphoria, and more, by integrating them into the biblical vision of creation.
    Readers of Wonderfully Made will not only be equipped to engage in current issues; they will gain a robust theology of the body and better appreciation of God's very good creation.
