The Risen Christ Conquers Mars Hill gathers a full dozen champions of the faith to expound upon Paul's ministry in Athens. It is believed that traversing this powerful passage in Acts 17 will deepen our faith in the risen and conquering Lord. The works are listed in the order in which they were delivered, thus Thomas Manton is first and Greg Bahnsen is last. Although there will certainly be some repetition of thoughts and ideas, it is believed that the various gifts and approaches of each man will give a freshness to each discourse.
From the Foreward by Sinclair Ferguson: "From the opening exposition of a seventeenth century Westminster Divine to the closing expositions of three twentieth century scholars associated with Westminster Seminary, The Risen Christ Conquers Mars Hill is a brilliantly conceived compilation of studies calculated both to educate and to stimulate. Paul's great sermon to the intellectual elite of a declining Athens is one of the great moments in Church history. It well repays careful study for its foundational theology, its methodology as a presentation of the gospel of God to a pagan audience, and for the passion for Christ that lay behind it. Here is careful theological exegesis, biblical doctrine, practical application, and sharp-edged apologetics all in one volume. The result? A book that cannot fail to instruct the mind, encourage confidence in the gospel's integrity, and challenge the church to a new boldness in witnessing to our paganism-restoring culture."
