Machen Christianity & Liberalism

What This Book Is About (in Machen’s own words). “In my little book, Christianity and Liberalism, 1923, I tried to show that the issue in the Church of the present day is not between two varieties of the same religion, but, at bottom, between two essentially different types of thought and life. There is much interlocking of the branches, but the two tendencies, Modernism and supernaturalism, or (otherwise designated) non-doctrinal religion and historic Christianity, spring from different roots. In particular, I tried to show that Christianity is not a “life,” as distinguished from a doctrine, and not a life that has doctrine as its changing symbolic expression, but that—exactly the other way around—it is a life founded on a doctrine.” (From “Christianity in Conflict,” an autobiographical essay on Machen’s life and works).

Machen, J.G. – Importance of Christian Scholarship

In Importance of Christian Scholarship by Machen, he examines why Christians should be extremely concerned with excellence in education. The first section is Christian excellence in education’s bearing on evangelism. The second section is its bearing on the defence of the faith, our basic foundational beliefs, and the third section is its bearing on the building up of the church.

Machen, J.G. – On the Deity of Christ

In this work by Machen, On the Deity of Christ, he first addresses the question of the deity of Christ, then he examines the Scriptures to see if they really teach this. Next he examies Christ’s deity in the sermon on the mount, and what Christ Himself actually taught. Finally he treats in three chapters the supernatural quality of Christ, His resurrection, and the testimony of Paul to Christ.
