    Cornelius Van Til's Introduction to Systematic Theology is one of his two or three most important books, certainly a must-read for anyone who is trying to understand Van Til. And it is important for Christians to understand Van Til today, as never before. He challenges Christians to think in a distinctively biblical way. That biblical way opposes and challenges all religions and secular philosophies, all ideologies that place the ultimate source of truth and value in human beings rather than in God. As with the recently republished Christian Apologetics, P&R has thoroughly re-edited Van Til's "syllabus," with an excellent introduction by William Edgar.

     The contributors to this book argue that there are significant differences between literal translations and the alternatives. The task of those who employ an essentially literal Bible translation philosophy is to produce a translation that remains faithful to the original languages, preserving as much of the original form and meaning as possible while still communicating effectively and clearly in the receptors' languages.

    A compilation of the teaching of the Church fathers on the primacy, sufficiency and ultimate authority of Scripture. It contains one of the most extensive documentations of the patristic understanding of Scripture in the English language brought together in one volume.

    The editors have gone to great lengths to provide the primary sources where the quotations can be found in the original works, where appropriate. The documentation provided reveals in the clearest possible terms the Church father's belief in the material and formal sufficiency of Scripture. Softcover, 312 pages.

     This book looks closely at the abiding influence of the doctrine of justification in modern Christian thought. Mark C. Mattes critically evaluates the use of justification in the theologies of five leading Protestant thinkers--Eberhard Jungel, Wolfhart Pannenberg, Jurgen Moltmann, Robert W. Jenson, and Oswald Bayer--pointing out their respective strengths and weaknesses and showing how each matches up with Luther's own views. Offering both an excellent review of recent trends in Christian theology and a powerful analysis of these trends, Mattes points readers to the various ways the doctrine of justification has been applied today. Despite the greatness of their thought, Jungel, Pannenberg, and Moltmann each accommodate the doctrine of justification to goals aligned with secular modernity. Both Jenson and Bayer, on the other hand, use the doctrine as a means to challenge the secularity of the modern academy. In the end, Mattes argues that Bayer's position is to be preferred as closest to Luther's own, and he shows why it offers the greatest potential for confronting current attempts at self-justification before God.

    They are everywhere - and they're trying to get you! They can affect your mind, make you do things that you don't want to do, and take your eyes off of God. What are they, and how can they have such an impact on your life?

    They are not ghosts or spirits of the dead; the true threat is the medium, the psychic, or whatever name the charlatan has assumed. Ron Rhodes knows this very well, and he draws back the curtains on this ancient and modern deception. Showing the reality of all manner of psychic activity in modern culture, Rhodes encourages the believer with solid, biblical facts and research.
