Art History Revisited
With a balanced, accessible style that will appeal to both the amateur and the art student, Calvin Seerveld explains that art is a fundamental cultural activity, and art history is a key way to orient the next generation to understand our human task.
Care for Creation
Human beings are God’s stewards, and we are tasked with caring for His world for His glory. This booklet outlines a distinctly Christian view of creation care that preserves the Creator-creation distinction, takes seriously the issues of sin and redemption, and recalls Christians to the godly task of environmental stewardship.
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.
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.
For Life: Defending the Unborn
This short book is intended to equip Christians with a biblical foundation for why and how to speak up for life, and minister to the vulnerable souls who are considering abortion with compassionate understanding.
For Mission: The Need for Scriptural Cultural Theology
The fullness and vigour of Christianity has been in decline in the life of the West, the application of gospel truths often limited to personal evangelism and our personal prayer life. But this is a radically narrow view of the Christian mission. In the biblical narrative we see a vision for the mission of God's people that is nothing less than the faithful worship of God in every area of life and culture - in our laws, educational institutions, politics, and arts, to name just a few. This short book seeks to reintroduce the full scope of the mission, challenging the common assertion that the gospel has nothing to say outside the walls of the church.
For the Hope that is in You: Christian Apologetics & the Biblical Story of Reality
The apostle Peter wrote that God's people need to always be ready to make a defense "to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you." Christians have responded in several ways to this "apologetic mandate," but what is the most biblically faithful approach? How do we present the Christian story in a culture that denies any overarching story or purpose to the world as we know it? The answer lies in first correctly identifying the nature of the hope that is in us; this hope is grounded in the historical work of Jesus Christ, and in his present reign as Lord and King over all the earth and over every area of human activity.
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.
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.
How Then Shall We Answer
Full of biblical and theological insights, and written with an evangelistic heart, this book serves to nourish the faithful, stimulate good arguments for the seeker and build a strong rational basis for the causative relation between faith and reason, the former being the presupposition of the latter. With rigor and relevance, it enables readers to grasp the signs of divine transcendence, and to be apprehended by the beauty of Christ.
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.
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.
