Historians and theologians alike have long recognized that at the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were five declarations (or “solas”) that distinguished the movement from other expressions of the Christian faith. Five hundred years later, we live in a different time with fresh challenges to our faith. Yet these rallying cries of the Reformation continue to speak to us, addressing a wide range of contemporary issues. The Five Solas series will help you understand the historical and biblical context of the five solas and how to live out the relevance of Reformation theology today. In God’s Word Alone—The Authority of Scripture, scholar and pastor Matthew Barrett looks at the historical and biblical roots of the doctrine that Scripture alone is the final and decisive authority for God’s people. He examines the development of this theme in the Reformation and traces the crisis that followed resulting in a shift away from the authority of Scripture. Barrett shows that we need to recover a robust doctrine of Scripture’s authority in the face of today’s challenges and why a solid doctrinal foundation built on God’s Word is the best hope for the future of the church.
A method of interpretation--a hermeneutic--is indispensable for understanding Scripture, constructing theology, and living the Christian life, but most contemporary hermeneutical systems fail to acknowledge the principles and practices of the biblical writers themselves. Christians today cannot employ a truly biblical view of the Bible unless they understand why the prophets and apostles interpreted Scripture the way they did. To this end, Abner Chou proposes a "hermeneutic of obedience," in which believers learn to interpret Scripture the way the biblical authors did--including understanding the New Testament's use of the Old Testament. Chou first unfolds the "prophetic hermeneutic" of the Old Testament authors, and demonstrates the continuity of this approach with the "apostolic hermeneutic" of the New Testament authors.
Where was the gospel before the Reformation? Contemporary evangelicals often struggle to answer that question. As a result, many Roman Catholics are quick to allege that the Reformation understanding of the gospel simply did not exist before the 1500s. They assert that key Reformation doctrines, like sola fide, were nonexistent in the first fifteen centuries of church history. Rather, they were invented by Martin Luther, John Calvin, and others. That is a serious charge, and one that evangelicals must be ready to answer. If an evangelical understanding of the gospel is only 500 years old, we are in major trouble. However, if it can be demonstrated that Reformers were not inventing something new, but instead were recovering something old, then key tenets of the Protestant faith are greatly affirmed. Hence, the need for this book. After reading Long Before Luther, readers will: Possess a greater understanding of church history and the role it plays in the church today. Have a deeper appreciation for the hard-won victories of the Reformation. Be equipped to dialogue with Catholic friends about the presence of Reformed doctrines throughout church history. Feel renewed gratefulness for the unearned nature of grace and the power of the gospel.
The book is about the importance of knowing Gods will for ones life, which is paramount in having a harmonious and fulfilling relationship with God. When theres uncertainty concerning the will of God in any aspect of ones existence, it results to confusion and anxiety. Too many Christians go through life and never realize Gods perfect will during their sojourn in time. In doing so, believers are robbed of the privilege of experiencing Gods best for their lives. It also deprives them of having an overcoming, fruitful, spirit-filled, joyful, and peaceful life. Not discerning Gods perfect will for your life will cause you to live far below your rights and privileges in Christ. The recognition of Gods purpose for your life will provide a sense of identity, belongingness, vocation, and guidance, which serves to connect you to a higher purposethe Kingdom of God. The truth is that not much attention is paid to this very critical area of Christianity today. However, it is the very heart of efficient and authentic Christian living. Without a clear understanding of Gods will in ones life, one may feel like or even become a square peg in a round hole, especially as it pertains to identifying the appropriate ministries and where to serve effectively in the body of Christ.
Virgil’s works are regarded as being the best preserved of any Latin author’s. However, the earliest extant mss. were produced at least 400 years after the originals, and tell us very little about the history of the texts in the generation following the death of the greatest Roman poet. Otto Zwierlein demonstrates the existence of a complete edition produced around 20?25 AD which, in addition to Virgil's works ? extended by textual insertions ? also included the alleged poems from his youth which we can now read in the Appendix Vergiliana. Previously the same editor had obviously taken care of Ovid. Zwierlein identifies him with Iulius Montanus, a figure from the world of declamation in the early Imperial Age, who is referred to as an elegiac and epic poet in one of the Epistulae ex Ponto. The present volume affords an insight into ancient Virgil criticism and the editorial practice of classical antiquity, and summarizes the findings of a critical commentary on the whole of Virgil’s work and exemplary selections from all of Ovid's work (including the relevant appendices) which removes the later alterations from the time of Tiberius and thus attempts to restore the original text as far as possible.
