Part I is here. The exact date of Luther’s conversion is debated. We do know that some time between 1513 and 1518 Luther understood the doctrine of justification by faith. His study of Paul’s epistles to the Romans and Galatians forced him to reckon with the concept of the righteousness of God. At this time, […]
A nice ad for the Dr. James White module on Polemics – new Atheism, Roman Catholicism, Islam, and Mormonism – is up at Time Challies site. Nice work, JB!
In this two-part-series, Richard Barcellos interviews Dr. Jim Renihan on various issues. Here are some of the issues pursued: Part I How would you define Puritanism?

Here is a fascinating lecture by Dr. Tom Nettles given at MCTS earlier this fall. Great stuff and highly recommended!
Got this from R. Scott Clark. Who woulda thunk it?
Dr. James White will be teaching a one-week course in early January at MCTS. This course will introduce the student to the major apologetic themes relating to evangelizing and responding to Islam, Roman Catholicism, Mormonism, and the “New Atheism.” This should be a great and very timely course! You can read more about it here.

Last June, MCTS took advantage of an opportunity to interview Drs. Renihan and Waldron on a variety of subjects. We […]
It appears to me that Dr. Schreiner sees three functions of the Sabbath. The first is related to old covenant Israel. It was a sign between God and Israel. It was a shadow. It was temporary. It was fulfilled in Christ. The Sabbath no longer functions as it once did. The second function is eschatological. It is a foreshadow of eschatological rest that “will be fulfilled on the final day when believers rest from earthly labors” (These are Dr. Schreiner’s words.). It still functions this way. “The Sabbath, then, points [notice the present tense] to the final rest of the people of God” (Dr. Schreiner’s words). Its third function would be to require (?) regular physical rest for believers.
This lecture was delivered on May 8, 1894 as Vos’s inaugural address as Professor of Biblical Theology in Princeton Theological Seminary. He was 32 years old and just embarking upon his teaching ministry at Princeton. Vos spoke as a representative of Reformed orthodox theology on an issue that had been the nearly exclusive property “of the liberal/critical biblical-theological enterprise” for over 100 years.
