Augustine : Confessions Newly Translated and Edited

By: Albert C. Outler

Religious Publication

Introduction: Like A Colossus Bestriding Two Worlds, Augustine stands as the last patristic and the first medieval father of Western Christianity. He gathered together and conserved all the main motifs of Latin Christianity from Tertullian to Ambrose; he appropriated the heritage of Nicene orthodoxy; he was a Chalcedonian before Chalcedon--and he drew all this into an unsystematic synthesis which is still our best mirror of the heart and mind of the Christian community i...

By: Various

Excerpt: St. Augustine (Aurelius Augustinus) was born in 354 A.D. at Thagaste in Numidia.

Baptism and Covenant Theology

By: Walter J. Chantry

Religious Publication

Excerpt: No Baptist begins to seek an answer to the question Who should be baptized? by studying the Bible's doctrine of the covenants. Rather, he begins with New Testament texts which deal directly with the term baptize. In a later study of Covenant Theology, he finds confirmation and undergirding of his conclusions. In the New Testament, we discover the nature of baptism defined. In the definition, something must be said about the person baptized. Its central significa...

We have fought those who have tried to water down the cost of discipleship and those who would try to add human merit to what Christ has done in saving us. On every front, we have tried to faithfully...

Biblical Hermeneutics

By: Rightly Divided

Religious Publication

Excerpt: Skeptics often ask me, If the Bible is God's Word, why are there so many different interpretations of what He supposedly said? Those who accept the Bible as the Word of God believe that God has spoken to us unambiguously. We believe that there is only one right interpretation of any given Biblical passage - the meaning God intended when He breathed His word into the human author. If this view is correct, it follows that of the many different interpretations skep...

By: Dr. Joel R. Beeke

Some here would consider Sunday to be special in commemorating the beginning...
