Instructive. ( )

For those who wish to better understand Christianity fundamentally as a system of doctrine rather than an ideal lifestyle; the difference between intellectualism and mysticism; the social gospel and the Biblical gospel; nature of conversion, particularly amongst those raised within Christian homes; the difference between good shepherds and false teachers; the deceptive tactics of wolves; the relationship between one's church to other denominations/ministries; and much more, this book is just for you, written by a mature, sound Christian thinker.

Chistianity and Liberalism
J. Gresham Machen
The main points of the christian faith are clearly exposed by Gresham Machen in order to refute liberalism. This work, though written in 1923, anticipates the controversies faced by christian churchs in recent time, as an effect of the development of liberals ideas. Christian ortodoxy, the author points, is chistianity plain and clear. Christian faith is not a mere way of life. It is a message based on facts and with an achievable meaning. The work great merit consist in explaining the christian message, pointing to the facts in with its based and giving its meaning. ( )
