Reformed Theological Seminary:

confessing-triune-god

The recent “Trinity debate” reveals much confusion surrounding what is undoubtedly the most important and the most glorious of Christian doctrines. It also signals the need to retrieve the doctrine of the triune God as confessed by Fathers of the church on the basis of Holy Scripture in the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed of A.D. 381. Join Drs. Ligon Duncan, Michael Haykin, Blair Smith, and Scott Swain as they seek to mine the riches of the Nicene Faith for the renewal of today’s church.

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…

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).

Sep. 19-21, 2016 “The Diversity of Dissent” Andrew Fuller Center 10th Annual Conf. in Louisville, KY.

Baptist origins lie within the matrix of the renewal movement known to history as Puritanism. They were not the only community to emerge from this renewal, however: English Presbyterians and Congregationalists also trace their beginnings back to Puritanism. But despite this common ancestry, these communities had their differences.

ep-267-2016-andrew-fuller-conference-hero-image

In this tenth annual conference of The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies, co-sponsored this year by The Davenant Trust, we trace this diversity through the lives and thought of three leading Puritans of the late Stuart era (1660–1714)—the Presbyterian Richard Baxter, the Congregationalist John Owen, and the Baptist William Kiffen—all of whom were born within a year or so of each other, in 1615 and 1616. Do join us as we think about the thought and ongoing legacy of these three extremely important Christian authors.

The 1689 Baptist Confession: Its Purpose & Theology [Dr. Michael Haykin | RBS | 2 AUDIOS/VIDEOS]

1689Dr. Bob Gonzales:

Dr. Michael Haykin
Dr. Michael Haykin

The confessional standard of the seminary I serve is the Second London Baptist Confession, a.k.a., the 1689 Baptist Confession. In the two lectures below, Dr. Michael Haykin, one of our seminary lecturers and the Professor of Church History and Biblical Spirituality at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, looks at purpose and theology of the Confession. What were some of the historical factors that motivated 17th century Particular Baptists to draft and, later, adopt the Confession in 1689? And what are some of the unique theological contributions that distinguish the 2LCF? Watch the videos or download the audios and learn. Also note that these lectures form part of the curriculum for the seminary’s course HT 501 Creeds & Confessions, which you may audit here.

The 2LCF: Its Purpose [20 min.]

In this lecture, Dr Haykin looks at the reasons why the 17th century Particular Baptists drafted and adopted the Second London Baptist Confession, rather than simply reprinting and continuing to use the First London Baptist Confession.

Praise for the book:

“Theologically rich, carefully researched, and historically grounded, this book leads us into the wisdom of one of the greatest theologians of all time. Barrett and Haykin’s study of John Owen expands our view of the Christian life to embrace the knowledge of God’s glory in Jesus Christ. As our Lord reminded us, that is life indeed (John 17:3). Once you finish this book, you will definitely want to read Owen himself!” — Joel R. Beeke

“The writings of John Owen constitute an entire country of biblical, exegetical, doctrinal, spiritual, casuistical, practical, ecclesiastical, controversial, and political theology. Massive in size, Oweniana cannot be visited on a day trip. Indeed a lifetime hardly suffices for all there is to explore. But hire as your tour guides Matthew Barrett and Michael Haykin, and the daunting journey seems possible after all. With these seasoned scholars and enthusiasts as companions, visiting the varied counties, the significant towns, and the great cities of Oweniana is as enjoyable as it is instructive. Owen on the Christian Life simply excels as an outstanding contribution to an already first-class series.” — Sinclair B. Ferguson

From the site:

Two Credo Magazine contributors, Matthew Barrett and Michael Haykin, have written a new book together: Owen on the Christian Life: Living for the Glory of God in Christ.

This book is part of the series, Theologians on the Christian Life, edited by Stephen Nichols and Justin Taylor. For only two more days, the book is 50% off at Westminster Books!

John Owen is widely regarded as one of the most influential English Puritans. As a pastor, he longed to see the glory of Christ take root in people’s lives. As a writer, he continues to encourage us toward discipline and communion with God. His high view of God and deep theological convictions flowed naturally into practical application and a zeal for personal holiness.

In Owen on the Christian Life, Barrett and Haykin guide us through the seventeenth-century theologian’s life and doctrine, giving us a glimpse into the majestic vision that served as the foundation for his approach to the Christian life–the glory of God in Christ.

The Baptist Story
From English Sect to Global Movement

by Anthony L. Chute, Nathan A. Finn, Michael A. G. Haykin

[ $37.48 | £37.63 ]

Description:

The Baptist Story is a narrative history spanning over four centuries of a diverse group of people living among distinct cultures on separate continents while finding their identity in Christ and expressing their faith as Baptists. Baptist historians Anthony Chute, Nathan Finn, and Michael Haykin highlight the Baptist transition from a despised sect to a movement of global influence. Each chapter includes stories of people who made this history so fascinating. Although the emphasis is on the English-speaking world, The Baptist Story integrates stories of non-English-speaking Baptists, ethnic minorities, women, and minority theological traditions, all within the context of historic, orthodox Christianity.

This volume provides more than just the essential events and necessary names to convey the grand history. It also addresses questions that students of Baptist history frequently ask, includes prayers and hymns of those who experienced hope and heartbreak, and directs the reader’s attention to the mission of the church as a whole. Written with an irenic tone and illustrated with photographs in every chapter, The Baptist Story is ideally suited for graduate and undergraduate courses, as well as group study in the local church.
