The World is Christ's: A Critique of Two Kingdoms Theology
At root, the Two Kingdoms controversy is a question of how we ought to live in a world that refuses to acknowledge Jesus Christ as Lord. In The World is Christ's, Willem J. Ouweneel details a number of historical, logical, and exegetical considerations surrounding this question, and helps readers understand that everything we do is an act of worship - the issue is whether our worship is directed towards God or away from him. Includes study questions for personal or group discussion.
How do we faithfully witness to the gospel of Jesus Christ in an age that seems to have abandoned any real notion of truth? Joe Boot demonstrates how to effectively present the gospel without compromising on its essential truths, and examines some of the prevailing worldviews that we must understand and contend with in such a post-truth context.
Power in Service
Willem Ouweneel provides an introduction to Christian political theory in this short work, considering such questions as What is the Kingdom of God? Where is it located, what are the limits of its authority, and how does it relate to human states and governments? In light of the Kingdom of God, what is the Christian’s responsibility to the state?
How do we understand our present cultural moment, what does Scripture have to say about our relationship to the culture surrounding us? Gospel Culture is the first in our series of Cornerstones monographs, short works designed to help Christians understand the scope and implications of the gospel, and the particular but timeless challenges to that gospel in the twenty-first century.
Por que Todavia Creo (Why I Still Believe)
En Por Que Todavia Creo, el apologista Joe Boot proporciona una introducción legible a la apologética presuposicional para el laico. Este enfoque supone que el cristiano y el no cristiano llegan a la discusión de la fe con cosmovisiones - conjuntos de presuposiciones - que están a kilómetros de distancia, de modo que hay poco terreno común sobre el cual construir un argumento objetivo de la prueba racional. Estas cosmovisiones deben ser examinadas, y Boot muestra cómo la cosmovisión no cristiana no logra hacer sentido del mundo. También invita al no creyente a entrar en la cosmovisión cristiana para ver si tiene sentido o no.
Political Liberalism: Theological Presuppositions
Andrew Sandlin demonstrates that the bedrock assumptions of the most pernicious political vision of our time are actually religious beliefs: an apostasy from the God of the Bible. Defeating that political vision cannot be accomplished without overturning its apostate religious assumptions and recalling people to biblical faithfulness and our covenant-keeping God.
The Christian Sexual Worldview
Our broad thinking of life doesn’t just shape our view of human sexuality. Our view of human sexuality shapes the rest of our thinking. This book is about why the Western sexual worldview has changed, how injurious it has been to our culture, and what Christians can do to reverse it.
Mission of God
2016 EZRA PRESS EDITION NOW AVAILABLE The Mission of God is a clarion call for Christians and God's church to awaken and recover a full-orbed gospel and comprehensive faith that recognizes and applies the salvation-victory and lordship of Jesus Christ to all creation: from the family, to education, evangelism, law, church, state and every other sphere.
The Coming Pagan Utopia
In this collection of lectures given at the 2013 truthXchange Think Tank, the authors analyze a variety of current utopian visions that inspire false hopes in today's culture, as well as presenting the true hopes God offers humanity. By showing the emptiness of human utopias and the glorious truth that only God's final "eu-topia" offers, these articles will equip Christians to understand false hopes and to live out the truth of the sure hope Christ offers.
Economic Atheism: The Religious Impulse of Interventionism
This booklet deals with the issue of how atheism has invaded our culture in the form of interventionist economics, and how it plunders our liberty – often with the consent of the church.
Christ and Culture
The Gospel of the Kingdom concerns our culture, which is quite essentially our state of being. This Gospel creates a new state of being by regeneration. Personal regneration is then followed by cultural regeneration, as the Gospel, like the mustard seed, grows and creates a society which spreads to impact all those around it as leaven transforms the whole loaf. Wherever God's children are faithful in preaching the gospel and applying God's truth to every area of life, cultures are re-created. We are God's new humanity in Jesus Christ, and wherever God's people are, by the power and mighty working of his Spirit, the culture of Christ inescapably flourishes around them.
