Publisher's Description

In the early decades of the twentieth century, a prophetic series of books took a bold stand in the debate over the essential meaning of Christianity. With the publication of The Fundamentals: A Testimony to the Truth, a new term entered religious language, fundamentalism, which then meant an adherence to the fundamental doctrines of biblical Christianity. Nearly a century later, biblical Christianity faces similar challenges, both from within and without its ranks. The term fundamentalism and the faith it represents have been debased by cultural change, entrenched secularism, and theological confusion. This new landmark work, with contributions from thirty-four notable Bible scholars, pastors, and teachers, sets forth a distinctively biblical agenda for the Christian faith in the twenty-first century.

    The scholarship represented here is first rate albeit somewhat slanted. The writers who contributed articles to the original series of The Fundamentals 100 years ago represented a broad spectrum of Protestant orthodoxy from a Wesleyan-Arminian to a Reformed view of soteriology, and eschatology and ecclesiology were not treated as definitional doctrines, the primary focus being on issues of bibliology and soteriology.

    In this work however, almost 25 percent is devoted issues of ecclesiology and eschatology, and less than 10 percent is devoted to issues of bibliology and soteriology. One is left with the impression that unless one is an adherent to dispensational theology, one is not a genuine Christian. While I am a dispensationalist, I do not hold dispensational ecclesiology and eschatology to be definitional doctrines.

    The biggest problem I have however, is with the formatting of the book. I detest endnotes. It is inconvenient to be flipping back and forth to check sources of citations. This shows sloppy editing as far as I'm concerned. Footnotes are far better. If one doesn't want to be bothered reading them, one can simply skip them, but if one wants to check for the source of a citation, one is not reduced to what I consider to be a major inconvenience in reading by having to flip back to the end and try to locate a citation buried with myriads of other citations.

    The men involved with The Fundamentals for the 21st Century delivered a body of doctrine in a polemic (and at times apologetic) fashion that is much needed at this point in church history. This book is solidly fundamental; it is historic-orthodox evangelical and unashamedly dispensational. Even if one is not a dispensationalist, this solidly conservative defense of "the Faith once for all delivered to the saints" is a "must" for your theological library. At college level reading, any technical jargon is explained so the material is understandable to anyone who reads it. There is simply no reason not to read this book. To identify the failures of Evangelicalism is not very popular, but such men as John MacArthur, Dave Doran and many authors in The Fundamentals for the 21st Century have been alerting us to the many errors in the church for a while now. But far from being a lambasting, heresy-hunter book, these respectable theologians deal with vitally important issues with gentleness and love, just as the Apostle Peter directed us. They tackle the issue of knowing truth (a rebuttal to postmodern thought), the abortion disaster, issues between the church and government, and other relevant topics, along with the essentials of the faith, e.g. the deity of Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit, and so on. I highly recommend this work for the Church wide, even to my Reformed and Pentecostal brothers. May our focus remain on Christ and may He enable us to finish our course and keep the faith, and this book is a tool through which He will work toward that end.

    I think this book is one that should be in every Christian's library.If you are concerned with what is going on in our world in general and our country in particular,you should read and heed the material in this book. We as Christian's need to know what is important,as it says in IICor 4:18 "while we look not at the things which ar seen,but at the things which are not seen;for the things which are seen are temporal,but the things which are not seen are eternal. Thanks to the many authors of this book!
