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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
To look back on William Gairdner’s book since its original publication in 1992, is to see clearly that his insights concerning the future of the family in Western civilization have been largely borne out. All those concerned with the direction of modern society and the world they are leaving for the next generation will benefit from the deep experience and penetrating insights here.
William Gairdner challenges citizens to reconsider standard interpretations of democracy and to think more deeply about the nature, subtlety, and complexity of our actual situation. It offers a refreshing understanding of the proper nature of a free and civil society.
