Bannerman’s The Church of Christ (Free eBook!!!) | Monergism

Bannerman’s two-volume Church of Christ is one of the greatest classic treatments of doctrine of the church in the history of the church. He is unashamedly Reformed and distinctively Presbyterian. The church mattered to Bannerman and his work can teach us about why the church should matter to us. James Bannerman was one of the many great luminaries who adorned the Free Church of Scotland in its early years in the nineteenth-century. His work was derived from his course lectures as a seminary professor and was published by his son, Douglas Bannerman.”…for those who wish to study the doctrine of the Church in its several aspects as it was held by the majority of the Reformers, Puritans, Covenanters and leaders of ‘The Third Reformation,’ it will prove an invaluable textbook.” – Iain Murray“Bannerman’s The Church of Christ is the most extensive, standard, solid, Reformed treatment of the doctrine of the church that has ever been written. It is indisputably the classic in its field.”Joel R. Beeke, President of Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan“During my seminary training in Edinburgh, I spent long hours plowing my way through James Bannerman’s Church of Christ. There was so much valuable and precious truth in these volumes.David P. Murray, Professor of Old Testament and Practical Theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary“Professor James Bannerman taught annually on the doctrine of the church at the New College in Edinburgh until his death in 1868—the same year he finished his masterpiece, The Church of Christ. It was in this great work that Professor Bannerman sought to equip his students for their ‘delicate and arduous task’ as future churchmen. As it was the privilege of those young scholars to receive these words from his lips, it is our privilege to receive them from his pen.A. Craig Troxel, Pastor of Bethel Presbyterian Church, and Adjunct Professor of Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary

Selected Shorter Works of Herman Bavinck (Free eBook) | Monergism

Here is an excerpt:

Herman Bavinck (1854-1921), a Dutch Reformed theologian, was a contemporary of Abraham Kuyper and B. B. Warfield, both of whom he knew well. He graduated magna cum laude in 1880 from Leiden with a double major in Systematic Theology and Old Testament. His doctoral dissertation was on the concept of the State in Zwingli’s theology. Bavinck taught at the Theological Seminary in Kampen, Holland – where he also pastored – before accepting the position of professor at the Free University of Amsterdam. He is best known for his magnum opus, Reformed Dogmatics (Gereformeerde Dogmatiek, in 4 volumes). Bavinck is one of the most balanced and solidly Reformed theologians Holland ever produced

The Sin-Bearing, Curse-Removing True Israel | The Christward Collective

Here is an excerpt:

There are two theological truths that structure the entirety of the biblical storyline. The first is that Jesus is the second and last Adam. The second is that Jesus is the true and greater Israel.* The totality of the biblical narrative can be understood in light of these two theological categories. Additionally, the whole of the Gospel is structured by these two great truths. Jesus is the sin-bearing, curse-removing second Adam and true Israel. While much has been written on the former, until recent years the latter has been largely overlooked. Matthew 2:14-15 indicates that Jesus came to recapitulate Israel’s history in order to fulfill the covenant promises for His people. Just as “He came to undo what Adam did and to do what Adam failed to do,” so “He came to undo what Israel did and to do what Israel failed to do” as the representative of His elect. In the first post in this series, we considered how Jesus in the sin-bearing, curse-removing second Adam; in this post we will briefly consider how he is the sin-bearing, curse-removing true Israel. In order to do so, we must consider how the covenant curses and the cross of Christ are inter-connected.

Biblical Doctrines by B. B. Warfield(Free e-book) | Monergism

Here is an excerpt:

Although justly famed for his landmark defense of the divine inspiration and authority of Scripture, B.B. Warfield was a theologian with multiple interests. In Biblical Doctrines Warfield reveals his mastery of such doctrines as the Trinity, the Person and Work of Christ, Redemption, and Faith. He covers the ground from the first essay, on Predestination, to the final one, on the Millennium with the apparent ease of the master craftsman. Rigorous in his scholarship, Warfield also possessed a personal spirit and style reminiscent of John Calvin’s ideal of clarity and brevity. He had a highly refined ability to expound the truth to the mind in such a way that it arouses a distinctly religious response. In so doing he exemplifies the principle that all biblical theology ultimately leads to doxology. B. B. Warfield’s articulation of doctrine blurs the boundary between theology and biblical interpretation. He wrote so prolifically on both theology and the Bible that delineating where one ends and the other begins can be a challenging task. Warfield shows how all of these central doctrines are firmly rooted in Scripture. This volume also concludes with a complete appendix of Warfield’s articles on biblical doctrines.

Ordinary Leadership | Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals

Here is an excerpt:

Crisis! Todd’s past comes back to bite him. This Promise Keepers-sweatshirt-wearing hooligan and the rest of the gang discuss a continually important pastoral subject: leadership. Much of what passes for “leadership training” in the evangelical church is profoundly unhelpful. It has more in common with secular leadership theory than it has with anything found in Scripture. This becomes especially troubling when it comes to pastoral leadership. What qualities should a good leader have? How can pastors improve their leadership capabilities to better serve their churches? Listen in!
