Publisher's Description

True to Scripture, true to reason, and true to life.Discover why these writings have been the impetus for revivals around the world.Students of revival agree that Charles Grandison Finney spearheaded one of America's greatest revivals and influenced the course of history. Church rolls swelled in the wake of Finney's revivals. He is often directly or indirectly credited with the conversions of around 500,000 people.Finney's theological convictions were born in the fires of revival and shaped by a keen lawyer's mind committed to the full authority of the Bible. He gave his life to promote: "The return to and practice of Biblical Christianity in the power of the Holy Spirit for the sake of God's kingdom and glory." The distinctive truths that Finney preached brought such a deep conviction of sin that today's church does well when it studies his position on the moral government of God, the nature of man, the atonement, sovereignty, attributes of love, unity of moral action and regeneration.This expanded volume represents the complete 1878 edition, two lectures of truth from the earlier 1847 and 1851 editions, a comprehensive introduction from L.G. Parkhurst, Jr., plus appendixes, a glossary, and a scripture index.

Author Bio

Charles G. Finney was born in 1792, and trained as a lawyer before becoming one of America's foremost evangelists. Over one million people were converted under his ministry in an age that offered neither amplifiers nor mass communication tools. The principles he discovered concerning the principles of revival have been preserved and utilized by evangelists and missionaries alike through the centuries. Finney served as professor of Theology and President of Oberlin College in Ohio.

    One day we will know which "doctrine" was right. First off sorry to burst some bubbles right at the beginning, but there certainly are scriptures alike being deleted from the book of life (i.e. Book of Rev).

    Let's take Luther on the opposite site of the grace teaching, and Finney on the other. Luther hated the letter James, with good reason. The cheap grace teaching (salvation has nothing to do with becoming a disciple) soo often brings fruit only for some time, yet we are saved through faith alone. But the real faith which is not dead is not man-made, its not accepting a logical concept of Gods salvation plan. Like Jesus said in John 6; only the Father can draw people to Jesus. And this is a personal experience, not a concept (alone), yet we have a message, but the people shall not believe on words alone (1Cor2:1-5), or as we can see in the book of acts, God was with them and accompanied (I would say signatured) the message with signs and wonders. There are 2 challenges arising out of this all. Firstly, an absolute proper message which God is willing to signature, and secondly, living deeply rooted in Gods presence to being able to hear him properly/follow his guiding.

    Think the first point isn't tuff and all clear? Well just look at this problem as an example: is it reeally new-testamentical, to show the way as a christian being now to go to a traditional church, which does have service ones or twice a week instead of everyday as it was in the bible? There are plenty of other difficult questions, which seem to be so clear but are not.

    Finney taught perfectionism--the belief that it is possible to achieve a state of perfection (that is, sinlessness) during this earthly life. Another reviewer offered the challenge to cite one verse from Scripture which teaches the opposite view (that is, that Christians, though regenerate, continue to sin). This is easily done since there are so many; but 1 John 1.8-10 is a good place to start. The Reformed doctrines teach some hard truths that make a person think hard and may make him agonize over his salvation. But, after all, we are to wrestle with our salvation to ensure that it is, in fact, genuine; it's not a walk in the park! But don't fool yourself: Finney's views make a person think and agonize too. He taught that a Christian can lose his salvation if he stops being obedient. Now if you honestly believed that doctrine, what would give you rest at night? There would always be something more you should have done. It depends on your obedient effort. Get up; do more! Your salvation is at stake! I was raised in a Wesleyan family that unconsciously followed Finney to the 't.' I can tell you, my soul was never at rest. I understand the agony of those who have embraced the doctrine of perfectionism but are secretly hounded by their own sinfulness. The doctrine of sovereign grace is the only cure to their on-going anguish. And Finney seems to have had nothing but contempt for that doctrine. What a strange doctor, to despise the only medicine that could cure his patient!

    Although by no means an "easy read," anyone who takes the time to study Finney's theology & especially his autobiography will be blessed to grasp the depths of the power of the gospel to set us free from sin to be "new creatures" in Christ. Finney is sometimes misunderstood, as some other reviews reflect. A reading of his Autobiography/Memoirs is very helpful before reading his systematic theolgy.

    Charles Finney's teaching in "Christ our advocate with the father":...The atonement is already made--this is a prepared salvation; the question is not whether you are going now to work out a salvation of your own, but whether you will accept a prepared salvation, made ready to your hand. What a contrast! How plain was this simple proposition! There it was, plain before me; atonement is made and an advocate stands ready; your consent alone is wanted. This was just as plain to me as if a proposition had been made in writing and it only required my signature to close the contract. This is the case. You are altogether condemned; you can do no works of righteousness to help yourself; yet a remedy is provided; will you accept it?Copyright (c)1999, 2000. Gospel Truth Ministries

    This is a brilliant book and kudos to those who did the research to reclaim the parts that were edited out after Finney's death. Some don't like Finney only because he did not believe God is a celestial puppeteer. If affirming that responsibility implies the ability to respond, is heresy, then I am a heretic. Finney's writings have kept me from throwing God out completely. Thank you.
