General Introduction: For the past century, the world of professing Christendom has faced several contests concerning the nature of God's justice and love, as well as the doctrines of Heaven and Hell. Rob Bell's book, Love Wins, is just another illustration of this reality. The entire protest revolving around Bell's book was fairly dramatic, however, it produced more smoke and heat than productive light. Despite the loud complaints leveled against the controversial author of Love Wins, what he unveiled in his book should have produced little surprise. There is a very important and untold story behind the whole Bell debate that must be passed on for the sake of future generations. The mystery and oddity of this conflict has revealed a systemic problem - one that is much greater than the protests surrounding Rob Bell.

Altar to an Unknown Love addresses the untold story which stands behind the scenes of Bell's particular views of theology. What the reader may find surprising is that Bell's teachings are remarkably familiar, and have even been promoted, whether directly or indirectly, by some of Bell's loudest critics. All of this points to a great opportunity for the church in the present day. The conflict surrounding Rob Bell actually supplies an opportunity to rediscover our need to go back to the Scriptures themselves, rather than to the teachings and traditions of men. This is an opportunity for the church to rediscover the priority of Sola Scriptura, now, and for the generations to come.

Indeed, has Paul Really Said?: Now in the UK!

9781935358022medcov

Indeed, has Paul Really Said?: A Critique of N.T. Wright’s Teaching on Justification, is now available for direct distribution in the UK (eden.co.uk). We anticipate that more distributors will be carrying it soon.

Main Information Page

General Description: It was Martin Luther who said that the doctrine of justification by faith is "the doctrine by which the church stands or falls." In reflection of this reality, Indeed, has Paul Really Said? is set forth as a modern-day defense of the crucial doctrine of justification against those who seek to undermine it by means of the theological innovations of men like N. T. Wright. In particular, Indeed, has Paul Really Said? is a directed critique of Wright's own work: What Saint Paul Really Said (Eerdmans Publishing, 1997). But rather than perusing every nuance of Wright's position, this book simplifies matters by revealing the Achilles' Heel of Wright's teaching regarding the expression - the righteousness of God - through four comprehensible and reproducible evaluations regarding:

1. A Lexical Analysis of the terms - righteousness, justification, and the expression - the righteousness of God;

2. The forensic [judicial] connotation of these terms;

3. The relevance of Paul's background as a Pharisee;

4. The manner in which justification is revealed within the whole counsel of God's Word.

The appendix contains five critical responses from N.T. Wright, including his statement of having "significantly" influenced John Piper's work, The Future of Justification, before it was published. From beginning to end, Indeed, has Paul Really Said? clearly reveals that the doctrine of Justification requires the strongest possible defense that can be afforded by those who seek to herald the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Anything less than this will prove to be a great danger to the church. This is true for our generation, just as it has been in every generation. Copyright Year: © 2008
