In this work Louis Berkhof explores the the history and theology of assurance of salvation through faith, showing how a Christian should be assured of their salvation through trusting Christ. This is a phenomenal book to read if you are doubting your faith.
The sermons of St John Chrysostom are noted as classical commentaries on the Christian life. Knowing well the realities of life in the world, the temptation of rich and poor alike, this great orator – “the golden-mouthed” – addresses the questions of wealth and poverty in the lives of people of his day. And yet, as the modern reader is confronted with his words, it becomes apparent that he too is being addressed; Chrysostom’s words are words proclaiming the truth of the Gospel to all people of all times. The message of the story of the rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31) is brought home to every person in these six sermons of Chrysostom with clarity, insight into the human dilemma, compassion and judgment.
The Gospel of the Kingdom was largely written during the last days of the great preacher’s life. ‘Such words acquire a solemnity and pathos with which nothing else could invest them’, wrote Mrs. Susannah Spurgeon when first introducing the volume in 1893 shortly after the death of her husband. We listen almost as to a voice ‘from the excellent glory’
In this short 31 day devotional format Spurgeon gives daily hope to the weary and warning to the proud and righteous. If you are looking to fill your day with weight that will keep you anchored through life’s storm this is a wonderful book.
This a collection of a few Spurgeon’s famous sermons which show the doctrines of grace from Scripture and urge the sinner to come to Christ for salvation.
I. Particular Redemption
II. Human Inability
III. Free Will—A Slave
V. Effectual Calling
VI. Final Perseverance
VII. The Doctrines of Grace Do Not Lead to Sin
VIII. Divine Sovereignty
IX. Sovereignty and Salvation
This lesser known work by John Owen is related to his works ‘The Mortification of Sin’, ‘Spiritual-Mindedness’, ‘On Indwelling Sin’, and ‘Temptation’. It specializes in examining whether a life is lived under the dominion of sin or grace, whether one is a sinner who has grace active and fighting in their life or one who merely makes a show of grace but is really under the bondage of sin.
Professor Berkhof died in 1957, at the age of 83. He was an outstanding American teacher and the author of some 22 books. After two pastorates, he began his long career as professor at Calvin Seminary, Grand Rapids, in 1906. Here he remained for 38 years, devoting his talents and immense stores of knowledge to the training of men for the ministry. His ‘Systematic Theology’ was his magnum opus, being revised and enlarged during his lifetime until it reached its present final form. Berkhof’s loyalty to the well-defined lines of the Reformed Faith, his concise and compact style and his up-to-date treatment have made this work the most important twentieth century compendium of Reformed Theology. ‘The work seemed particularly important to me’, writes the author, ‘in view of the widespread doctrinal indifference of the present day, of the resulting superficiality and confusion in the minds of many professing Christians, of the insidious errors that are zealously propogated even from the pupits, and of the alarming increase of all kinds of sects.
