Dr. Trueman examines the origins of contemporary Reformed theology in the Reformation world of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. After tracing how this heritage shaped and transformed the intervening period, he then describes some of the major challenges being faced by the evangelical church at the present time and suggests ways of responding which remain faithful to the Scriptures and the theology of the Reformers drawn from it and points towards a future that embraces and disseminates these wonderful doctrines of grace.
A very detailed and thought-provoking work, which will have you thinking about the practices of your church today. The author shows how the teachings of the 16th century Reformers are still relevant for us. This is because, although our culture may be vastly different from theirs, the message of God revealing Himself in Christ is still the need of the present day. The author also goes on to show the importance of the preaching of the Bible as God’s Word. Finally, he concludes with a chapter on assurance for the Christian, based on the teaching of the Bible, rather than on legalistic teaching or personal feelings and experiences. Highly recommended, and containing much timely teaching for the evangelical church.
