1st 3 books in the “Recovering our Confessional Heritage” series OUT NOW! [IRBS | RBAP]

recovering-confessional-heritage-books

The series is sponsored by the Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies in cooperation with RBAP. The Institute of Reformed Baptist Studies is a graduate theological school which aids churches in preparing men to serve in the Gospel Ministry. For more information please visit irbsseminary.org.

The purpose of the series . . . is to address issues related to the Second London Confession of Faith of 1677/89 (2LCF). . . . The series will include treatments of various subjects by multiple authors. The subjects to be covered are those the series editors (along with consultants) determine to be of particular interest in our day. The authors will be those who display ample ability to address the issue under discussion. Some of the installments will be more involved than others due to the nature of the subject addressed and perceived current needs. Many of the contributions will cover foundational aspects of the self-consistent theological system expressed in the Confession. Others will address difficult, often misunderstood, or even denied facets of the doctrinal formulations of the 2LCF. Each installment will have a “For Further Reading” bibliography at the end to encourage further study on the issue discussed.

Associational Churchmanship:
Second London Confession of Faith 26.12-15

by James M. Renihan

Dr. James Renihan
Dr. James Renihan

Theology does not occur in a vacuum. It develops out of real-life situations. Men study the Word of God, contemplate its teaching, and express their conclusions. Often it is the circumstances of life that force them to think more closely and clearly about their doctrinal views and that sharpen the expressions of truth. When Arius challenged the divinity of Christ, Christians faced new questions, and the result of the debate was a clearer view of the deity of our Savior. We could give many illustrations from the history of the Church of that increasing clarity and understanding in the Creeds and Confessions of Christianity.

The doctrine of associational churchmanship expressed in our Confession is another one of these circumstances. Our discussion will involve the following: first, the three ways to describe interchurch relations; second, the church in the Second London Confession of Faith (2LCF); third, an overview of chapter 26.1-11 and brief exposition of 26.12-13; fourth associationalism; and finally, a conclusion and application.

The Covenant of Works:
Its Confessional and Scriptural Basis

by Richard C. Barcellos

Dr. Richard Barcellos
Dr. Richard Barcellos

Moses, writing after the historical acts of creation, utilizes the covenantal name of God, Yahweh, while discussing Adam’s Edenic vocation (Gen. 2:4ff.). Isaiah utilizes concepts that started with Adam to explain the universal guilt of man, while using the word “covenant” (Isa. 25:5-6). Hosea, looking back upon previous written revelation, makes explicit what was implicit in it. The prophet’s inspired words give us God’s infallible knowledge of one of the similarities between ancient Israel and Adam. Both had a covenant imposed on them by God and both transgressed their covenants (Hos. 6:7). Paul, while reflecting on Adam’s Edenic vocation, contrasts the disobedience of Adam and its results with the obedience of Christ and its results (Rom. 5:19). The term “works” in the phrase “covenant of works” contrasts with “grace” and “gift” in Romans 5:17. Paul asserts that Adam was a type of Christ (Rom. 5:14). Adam sinned and fell short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23). Christ did not sin (Heb. 4:15) and, upon his resurrection, entered into glory (Luke 24:46; Acts 26:19-23; 1 Pet. 1:10-12), a quality of life conferred upon him due to his obedience (Rom. 5:21). This is the life he confers upon all believers.

These scriptural realities, understood by the utilization of the hermeneutical principles of the Holy Spirit as the only infallible interpreter of Holy Scripture, analogia Scriptura, analogia fidei, and scopus Scripturae, led to the confessional formulation of the doctrine of the covenant of works.

New Book: “50 World Changing Events in Christian History” by Earl M. Blackburn

50 World Changing Events in Christian History

by Earl M. Blackburn

Paperback: $14.99/£9.99 | Kindle: $11.99/£9.17

Description:

  • 50 short chapters on 50 events over 2000 years

  • Potted church history

  • Useful for personal study as well as for pastors and churches

Pastor Earl Blackburn
Pastor Earl Blackburn

The increase in terrorism, the push for gender fluidity, the eradicating of Christianity from schools – During these worrying times, Earl Blackburn shows that learning about our history can be one of the best tools for encouraging us in our faith. Hearing stories of the perseverance of Christian heroes such as John Wycliffe, Martin Luther, and William Wilberforce is inspirational for everyday struggles; while seeing how God has grown His church through times of hardship and persecution helps us to have courage about the church of today.

Endorsements:

Dr. Tom Nettles

This really is a fine piece of work and should be very popular and highly useful in the church.

– Tom J. Nettles, Senior Professor of Historical Theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

Nathan Finn… 50 World-Changing Events in Christian History is a helpful overview of church history written from an evangelical and reformed perspective. I hope it will help many believers understand how their own lives and local churches fit into the ongoing story of God’s new covenant people from every tribe, language, and nation.

– Nathan A. Finn, Associate Professor of Historical Theology and Baptist Studies, The Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, North Carolina

Dr. James Renihan… As a professor of Church History, one of the most frequent questions I am asked is for a recommendation of a simple survey of the life of the church over the last 2,000 years. Now I have the answer to that question…

Pastor Rob Ventura
Pastor Rob Ventura

I’m excited to announce that the long-awaited theological works of Greg Nichols will be coming out soon. We hope to have the first of seven volumes ready by December this year or by January next year. If you would, please keep the project in prayer… These books will be available on Amazon.com and through other distributors.

Author:

Pastor Greg Nichols
Pastor Greg Nichols

Greg Nichols has been pastoring and teaching systematic theology for over three decades. Greg formerly taught at Trinity Ministerial Academy in Montville, New Jersey and now teaches for Reformed Baptist Seminary. He has also taught modular courses throughout the United States and in the Dominican Republic, the Philippines, the United Kingdom, and Columbia. Since 1994 he has been a pastor at Grace Immanuel Reformed Baptist Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where he lives with his wife Ginger.

Endorsements:

I have waited for 20 years to see these lectures finally delivered to us in book form. Though Greg Nichols has evidently interacted with the great Systematic theologians of the past, the contents of these pages are no mere echoes of a bygone era. He has used his gifts and applied his mind in his vintage years to build on this historic foundation and bequeathed to the church a Systematic Theology that is both biblically based and historically fresh. If these are the first fruits, I wonder what the other volumes will be like!

Dr. Conrad Mbewe, Chancellor of the African Christian University and Principal of the Lusaka Ministerial College in Lusaka, Zambia

In a day full of light books, Greg Nichols has given us a treatment on the attributes of God in a manner so thoroughly Biblical as to establish the adoration of our Lord upon the firmest of foundations. Here we find gems worth mining. Here is solid nourishment for the head and heart of every hungry believer.

New Book: “John Bunyan & the Grace of Fearing God” by Paul M. Smalley & Joel R. Beeke

john-bunyan-grace-fear

John Bunyan and the Grace of Fearing God
by Paul M. Smalley & Joel R. Beeke

AMZ: $14.99/£11.41 | RHB: $8

 

About:

He was the author of the best-selling Christian book of all time. His Bible-saturated works have inspired generations of believers all over the world. And yet, as influential as it is, John Bunyan’s theology contains a unifying thread that is sorely neglected in the modern church: the vital importance of the fear of God.

Fearing God is seen by many as psychologically harmful—at odds with belief in a God of love. But Bunyan knew personally that the only freedom from a guilty fear of God’s wrath is a joyful, childlike fear of his holiness. Joel Beeke and Paul Smalley guide us through Bunyan’s life before exploring his writings to illuminate the true grace of fearing God.

Endorsements:

“Wisdom requires it, Jesus emphasized it, the apostles encouraged it—and yet few things are more feared in contemporary Christianity than . . . the fear of God. This timely book . . . shows how the fear of God was, in contrast, the heartbeat of one of the most loved and admired of all Christians.”

Sinclair B. Ferguson, Dean of the Doctor of Ministry program, Ligonier Academy of Biblical and Theological Studies

“We today need to read and treasure Bunyan. . . . Beeke and Smalley take the reader through the core of Bunyan’s corpus and whet the reader’s appetite to plunge afresh into Bunyan’s works.”

Michael A. G. Haykin, Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

The Authors:

Paul M. Smalley is a teaching assistant to Dr. Beeke at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary and a bivocational pastor at Grace Immanuel Reformed Baptist Church in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Joel R. Beeke (PhD, Westminster Theological Seminary) is president of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, where he also serves as professor of systematic theology and homiletics. He is a pastor of the Heritage Netherlands Reformed Congregations in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the author of several books, including Truth That Frees, The Quest for Full Assurance, and A Reader’s Guide to Reformed Literature.

Report of the 1st Module of the Confessional Baptist Seminary of Ecuador & upcoming 2nd class starts Nov. 21, 2016 [CBTS]

Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary:

ecuador-2016
Pastor Francisco Orozco

July 25-29 we had the first class of the Confessional Baptist Seminary of Ecuador (SBCE), with the backing of Covenant Baptist Theological Seminary. The first module was on “The Doctrine of the Word of God,” and was taught by Pastor Francisco Orozco from Chihuahua, Mexico .

The class took place in a camp owned by the Southern Baptist Convention, which is located in the Ecuadorian coast in a small city named Manglaralto. We had 56 students in attendance, the majority of them were pastors of churches and men involved in the ministry of the Word, but from different denominational contexts.

The class had a great impact due to the great truths of the Word of God that were expounded by Pastor Orozco, many of these truths had never been thoroughly studied by some of these pastors before. Among many questions and “battles of the heart” we were able to perceive the great disposition of the heart of these pastors, including some with many years of pastoral experience, who were taught that the Word of God should be their guide in the work of the ministry, and they came to desire that this would be a reality in their ministries.

The week ended full of joy and gratitude to the Lord. Each student returned to his home desiring to put into practice what he had learned, but also with the commitment to set aside time to attend the second class, which will be held November 21-25, and will be taught by Pastor Guillermo Gomez from Bogota, Colombia.

We ask you to pray for our students, the professors, and the whole organization of the Confessional Baptist Seminary of Ecuador, that God would be glorified in everything we do.

Soli Deo Gloria,
Pastor Jorge A. Rodriguez V.
Director SBCE

Paperback $20.00 / £15.44 | Kindle: $9.99 / £6.95

It’s not that we’re unappreciative of the “ordinary” workings of God among his people – we are! But those periods of extraordinary movings of God are exciting and a fascinating area of study that always leaves us marveling at the power of the grace of God at work in the human soul. “Revivals” we call them, or “Pentecostal outpourings.”

That’s the title of a new book edited by Michael Haykin along with Robert Davis Smart and Ian Hugh Clary – Pentecostal Outpourings: Revival and the Reformed Tradition. I’m Fred Zaspel, editor here at Books At a Glance, and today our friend Michael Haykin is here to talk with us about their new book.

Greetings, Michael – congratulations on your new book and thanks for talking to us today about it…

5th edition of “A Modern Exposition of the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith” Coming Soon [Sam Waldron]

Sam Waldron:

Sam Waldron 1689 commentaryThe Manuscript for the 5th edition of A Modern Exposition of the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith has been sent to the publisher!  Over the next few weeks we plan to share some insights, additions and improvements that you can expect to see in the new edition.

I want to enlarge on the improvements in the 5th edition of A Modern Exposition.

One of the major improvements, I hope, is in the expanded appendices at the end of the exposition.

Dr. Sam Waldron
Dr. Sam Waldron

Appendix A: The Historical Origin of the 1689 … corrects some historical inaccuracies owing to the primitive state of the sources I used to construct it in the original version of the Exposition.

Appendix B: The Analytical Outline of the 1689 … is a development of an outline I originally borrowed from Greg Nichols. It is now refined by the insights I have gleaned from Jim Renihan’s teaching on the structure of the Confession.

Appendix C: The Doctrinal Overview of the 1689 Baptist Confession is entirely new. It provides an argument that the Confession embodies a tradition which combines historic (catholic) orthodoxy with Reformed theology and Baptist principles.

Appendix D: The Proper Holding of the 1689 Baptist Confession is my response to the notion that the membership in a confessional church requires full subscription and that, therefore, the 1689 is too detailed to be a good, local church confession. I argue that elders must teach the Confession and thus fully subscribe, but members need only sweetly submit to the Confession and need not fully subscribe. This article has been posted on Founders.org  for some years now. How (and Why) Your Church Should Hold to the 1689 Confession

New Book: “A Covenant Feast: Reflections on the Lord’s Table” by J. Ryan Davidson

A Covenant Feast
Reflections on the Lord’s Table

by J. Ryan Davidson

$9.99£7.99

About:

For the Christian, oftentimes the question is: “What else is there to help me grow?” The Lord’s Supper is frequently not thought of in answer to that question. But what exactly is the Lord’s Supper, and why is it important in the life of the Christian? In a day when this feast of God’s covenant grace is often overlooked, this book calls for a greater appreciation and love for the table of the Lord. A Covenant Feast: Reflections on the Lord’s Table is one pastor’s brief attempt at encouraging readers to reflect more deeply on the use of the Lord’s Supper in their lives and to come away with a deeper understanding and appreciation for how God uses this meal in the lives of His children.

1st volume published in new series “The complete works of Andrew Fuller” ed. by Michael Haykin

Refo5000:

complete-works-of-andrew-fullerThe first volume in the series The complete works of Andrew Fuller, ed. by Michael Haykin, has now been published by De Gruyter: Volume 9, Apologetic Works 5, Strictures on Sandemanianism, ed. by Nathan A. Finn.

Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) was the leading Baptist theologian of his era, though his works are just now being made available in a critical edition. Strictures on Sandemanianism is the fourth volume in The Works of Andrew Fuller. In this treatise, Fuller critiqued Sandemanianism, a form of Restorationism that first emerged in Scotland in the eighteenth century and was influencing the Scotch Baptists of Fuller’s day. Fuller’s biggest concern was the Sandemanian belief that saving faith is merely intellectual assent to the gospel. Fuller believed this “intellectualist” view of faith undermined evangelical spirituality. Strictures on Sandemanianism became a leading evangelical critique of Sandemanian views. This critical edition will introduce scholars to this important work and shed light on evangelical debates about the faith, justification, and sanctification during the latter half of the “long” eighteenth century (ca. 1750 to 1815).
