Arnold, T. – The Christian Life: Its Course, Its Hindrances, and Its Helps.

The Christian Life: Its Course, Its Hindrances, and Its Helps.

by Thomas Arnold, D.D, Head Master of Rugby School, and Late Fellow of Oriel College, Oxford.

From the Fifth London Edition.
1856.

“As far as the principle on which Archbishop Laud and his followers acted went to re-actuate the idea of the church, as a co-ordinate and living power by right of Christ’s institution and express promise, I go along with them; but I soon discover that by the church they meant the clergy, the hierarchy exclusively, and then I fly off from them in a tangent.

“For it is this very interpretation of the church, that, according to my conviction, constituted the first and fundamental apostasy; and I hold it for one of the greatest mistakes of our polemical divines, in their controversies with the Romanists, that they trace all the corruptions of the gospel faith to the Papacy.”–COLERIDGE,

Literary Remains, vol. iii. p. 386.

This is a book of 30+ sermons on different aspects of the Christian life. Continue reading

Abstract of Systematic Theology

Abstract of Systematic Theology
By James Petigru Boyce

Abstract of Systematic Theology contains forty-two essays ranging in topic from the doctrines of God, the Trinity, and humanity, to creation, providence, and justification. Boyce also wrote extensively on the issues of election, atonement, and the immortality of the soul. Boyce’s theology was heavily influenced by Charles Hodge, and he used Hodge’s Systematic Theology text at the Southern Baptist Seminary. The essays found in Abstract of Systematic Theologywere originally intended to supplement the content of Boyce’s systematic theology classes at the seminary from 1859–1888. Boyce compiled and completed Abstract: “it is no mere logic chopping treatise but is vibrant with an experimental faith centered in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior… .” Published in 1887.
