The Anglican Evangelical Doctrine of Infant Baptism

The Anglican Evangelical Doctrine of Infant Baptism by John Stott and Alec Motyer. Edited by Lee Gatiss.

“The subject of infant baptism is undoubtedly a delicate and difficult one ... But this must not make members of the Church of England shrink from holding decided opinions on the subject. That church has declared plainly in its Articles that ‘the baptism of young children is in any wise to be retained, as most agreeable with the institution of Christ.’ To this opinion we need not be afraid to adhere.” J. C. Ryle

God, Gays and the Church

GGCGod, Gays & the Church: Human Sexuality in Christian Thinking Edited by Lisa Nolland, Chris Sugden and Sarah Finch

In contemporary discussions about human sexuality, great prominence is given to personal stories from gay people. This emphasis can also been seen in recent Christian debates, such as those in the General Synod of the Church of England in February 2007. But there it was a one-sided testimony, and this book is intended to redress the balance.

From Life's First Cry

From Life's First Cry: John Owen on Infant Baptism and Infant Salvationby Lee Gatiss.

In a context of great controversy, puritan theologian John Owen (1616-1683) wrote a rationale for covenantal infant baptism. He defines the question carefully, and sets about proving his case with biblical and theological arguments designed to counter the attack made on the practice by influential antipaedobaptists.

"To bring men to heaven by preaching"

sal2006

'To bring men to heaven by preaching': John Donne's Evangelistic Sermons by Peter Adam.

Peter Adam writes; "My idea is to show how strongly reformation ideas of Gospel, Bible, and Preaching had permeated the Church of England, in that even John Donne, though certainly not a Puritan, was in fact reformed in his ideas and practice of preaching. His evangelistic sermons are wonderful!"

A Puritan Theology of Preaching

sal2005

A Puritan Theology of Preaching by Chad B Van Dixhoorn.

The history of preaching has not been ignored in recent years on any level, and yet there are still gaps in our understanding of the history of preaching.  This study proposes something .distinct from previous studies in that it narrows the scope from Puritanism in general to the Puritans of the Westminster Assembly in particular.  The Westminster Assembly is of particular historical importance because of the influence the Assembly had on the pulpit ministry of later Puritan and Reformed ministers.
