2A Primer On PietismRyan Haskins, Jon Moffitt, Jeremy Litts, Byron YawnBooks By The BoysStage 11The most common question we get asked concerns our use of the terms "pietism" and "confessionalism." These two descriptors are in constant rotation among the boys of Theocast. This brief little overview is intended to help catch you up on our conversation. It's quite possible that we'll simply put words to what you are already thinking.
3Sacred Bond: Covenant Theology ExploredMichael Brown and Zach KeeleCovenant TheologyStage 11Looking for a book that will describe the basics of covenant theology? If so, Sacred Bond is your book. Not only will you receive a clear understanding of Covenant Theology, but you will also come away better understanding the redemptive storyline of the Bible. No prerequisite knowledge is required. Michael Brown starts with the basics and builds from there.
4Living in God's Two Kingdoms: A Biblical Vision for Christianity and CultureDavid VanDrunenCultureStage 11"Be in the world but not of the world." It's a common phrase thrown around the church. What does it mean? Many books have been written on the subject of Christ and Culture. But many of them are simply lists of do's and don'ts. Rules that a Christian must follow to protect his or her witness in the world. Living in God's two kingdoms tackles the question of how a Christian should live a little differently. It's a great book on how not to over-Christianize our normal affairs. It takes the complicated "Christian" system and un-complicates it.
5The Plan of SalvationB.B. WarfieldCalvinismStage 21Originally delivered as a series of lectures at Princeton Theological Seminary, "The Plan of Salvation" is a masterful articulation of various views of salvation among Christian believers. Warfield, in his own thoughtful way, analyzes and interacts with each viewpoint and arrives at the conclusion that salvation is either from God or from ourselves. This thought-provoking book will be sure to foster a better understanding of God and his role in salvation, convincing you that a renewed heart is truly of the Lord.
6Everlasting RighteousnessHoratius BonarTheologyStage 21The Everlasting Righteousness may be the best book on the doctrine of justification by faith alone ever written. One reader aptly said, "Bonar reflects on the substitutionary atonement of Christ in a way that puts to shame the many "devotional" writers found today. The theology is precise and life-changing, and beautiful as well. There is no sophistry here though. Just a man who loved true doctrine and had a gift with expression."
7What Is Faith?J. Gresham MachenTheologyStage 20Machen addresses one of the most fundamental questions about the Christian gospel. In his graceful style, he expounds the biblical teaching on faith, combining the solid content of the truth with the personal challenge of the gospel. The result is a book of outstanding and permanent value.
8The Scandal of the Evangelical MindMark NollEvangelical HistoryStage 20If we don't understand and learn from history we'll be doomed to repeat it. Mark Noll skillfully and thoroughly recounts what has happened in the history of the American church. If you've ever wondered why the church has certain practices and traditions today, this book will offer some answers.
9Recovering the Reformed ConfessionR Scott ClarkConfessional TheologyStage 20Much of what passes as Reformed among our churches is not. As a class of churches that profess allegiance to Reformed theology, practice, and piety, we have drifted from our moorings. This book is written to facilitate change, specifically reformation according to God's Word as summarized in the Reformed confessions.
10Covenant and Salvation: Union with ChristMichael HortonTheologyStage 30In Covenant and Salvation, Michael Horton surveys law and gospel, union with Christ, and justification and theosis conversing with both classical and contemporary viewpoints.
11Faith and SanctificationG. C. BerkouwerSanctificationStage 30We all understand that faith is necessary for our justification. But rarely do we consider how faith is just as necessary in our sanctification. Berkouwer excellently demonstrates our need for faith every day of our life as we're being sanctified in Christ.
12Marrow of Modern DivinityEdward FisherEvangelical HistoryStage 30The Marrow is the historically important book that caused the Marrow Controversy in the Church of Scotland. The Marrow is written as a dialogue among a pastor, a legalist, an antinomian, and a neophyte Christian. It advocates a free grace gospel against both a works-righteousness gospel and a cheap-grace gospel. Why should a Christian read this today? Because you'll be surprised how closely the controversy in the church then mirrors much of our controversy today.
13Biblical TheologyGeerhardus VosBiblical TheologyStage 30The aim of this book is no less than to provide an account of the unfolding of the mind of God in history, through the successive agents of his special revelation. Vos handles this under three main divisions: the Mosaic epoch of revelation, the prophetic epoch of revelation, and the New Testament. Such a historical approach is not meant to supplant the work of the systematic theologian; nevertheless, the Christian gospel is inextricably bound up with history, and the biblical theologian thus seeks to highlight the uniqueness of each biblical document in that succession. The rich variety of Scripture is discovered anew as the progressive development of biblical themes is explicated.
14Bondage of the WillMartin LutherCalvinismStage 30This is a must-read. It's a classic piece of Biblical literature composed by one of the prominent founders of the Reformation that reveals truth in the word of God about man's nature and sin-bound will, hopeless without the divine intervention of God's hand to work and to will in those chosen for salvation.
