Machen, J.G. – Christian Faith in the Modern World

The Christian Faith in the Modern World
by John Gresham Machen

In this 18 chapter book Machen explores How God may be known? Has He spoken? Is the Bible the Word of God? Is it Verbally Inspired? Should we defend the Bible? Is the Bible above human authority? Then he explores a little more about God as Creator, the Triune God, the deity of Christ, and the Holy Spirit.

DURING the first four months of the year 1935, the writer of this book delivered over Station WIP a course of radio addresses, for which the arrangements were made by the Rev. Edwin H. Rian, on behalf of Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia. The addresses are now published in a form very similar to that in which they were delivered. The resulting book may perhaps lay claim to a larger degree of unity than that which is usually possessed by published addresses, since these addresses proceeded in logical sequence. Little more than a beginning, however, is made of the treatment of the subject indicated in the title. The Christian view of the Bible and a part, at least, of the Biblical doctrine of God are presented (of course only in summary fashion); but other great elements in the Christian Faith—the Christian view of man and the Christian view of salvation—are left for future treatment.

The author desires to express his heartfelt gratitude to his friend, the Rev. Edwin H. Rian, of the Board of Trustees of Westminster Theological Seminary, to whom the plan for the delivery of such a course of lectures was due, and whose unfailing encouragement and help made possible the carrying out of the plan. The author is also indebted to colleagues in the Faculty of the Seminary—particularly to Mr. John Murray, who is in charge of the Department of Systematic Theology—for counsel generously given him with regard to certain of the subjects treated in the lectures.

First printed by WM. B. EERDMANS PUBLISHING CO. of Grand Rapids: Michigan in 1936. A paperback edition was printed in 1965.
