Five decades before the birth of Christ, Chava, daughter of the royal tutor, grows up with Urbi, a princess in Alexandria’s royal palace. When Urbi becomes Queen Cleopatra, Chava vows to be a faithful friend no matter what–but after she and Cleopatra have an argument, she finds herself imprisoned and sold into slavery.
Torn from her family, her community, and her elevated place in Alexandrian society, Chava finds herself cast off and alone in Rome. Forced to learn difficult lessons, she struggles to trust a promise HaShem has given her. After experiencing the best and worst of Roman society, Chava must choose between love and honor, between her own desires and God’s will for her life.
A sermon on Christian baptism, with many quotations from Pedobaptist authors. To which are added a letter to the church in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and an address on the mode of baptizing. This work marks missionary Adoniram Judson’s watershed decision to become a Baptist.

In a world where evil seems to lurk around every corner and our thoughts turn to worry about our safety and security, the armor of God is our Father’s protection in the fight against evils of our temporary home. Best-selling author Hank Hanegraaff describes God’s protective covering over his children by dissecting Paul’s words in Ephesians 6: 10-18 commanding us to put on the armor of God and “take our stand against the devil’s schemes.” Hanegraaff moves through the passage, phrase by phrase, defining God’s armor, explaining what it means to embrace God’s covering, and the practical ways God delivers us from evil.

Abraham Kuyper was, by any standard, one of the most extraordinary figures in modern Christian history. He was a Dutch Reformed minister, a gifted theologian, a prolific journalist, the leader of a political party, the cofounder of the Free University of Amsterdam (where he was professor of theology), a member of the Dutch Parliament, and eventually prime minister of the Netherlands.
Kuyper’s remarkable legacy lives on today in the tradition of Dutch Calvinism that he developed. As his writings become more widely available, this tradition continues to find new adherents attracted by his comprehensive vision of Christian faith. But what defines the Kuyperian tradition?
Renowned South African theologian and philosopher Craig Bartholomew has written the first systematic introduction to this tradition. Drawing on Kuyper’s entire corpus, Bartholomew has identified the key themes and ideas that define this tradition, including worldview, sphere sovereignty, creation and redemption, the public square, and mission. He also goes beyond Kuyper to show how later thinkers developed these ideas. They include, among others, Herman Bavinck, J. H. Bavinck, Gerrit C. Berkouwer, and Herman Dooyeweerd. (more…)
