Your Will Be Done

ls83Your Will Be Done: Exploring Eternal Subordination, Divine Monarchy and Divine Humility by Michael J Ovey

The relationship between the Father and the Son in the Trinity has been hotly debated since the earliest centuries of the church. The Church Fathers like Tertullian, Athanasius and Hilary of Poiters wrestled with it; church councils at Nicaea, Syrmium and Chalcedon legislated about it in attempts to define orthodoxy and heresy.  What did they and the Bible say, and why does it matter today?

Portrait of a Prophet

sa2016Portrait of a Prophet: Lessons from the Preaching of John Owen (1616-1683) By Martyn Cowan

St Antholin lecture 2016

This study offers a sketch of John Owen’s prophetic preaching in which his dogmatic providentialism and the fiery apocalypticism almost threaten to destroy his image as a Reformed Orthodox theologian and man of the Renaissance. With an initial glance, one might think that there is little practical to be learned from such a vignette. However, upon closer inspection three striking applications, or, in the language of early-modern homiletics, ‘uses’, emerge that are directly relevant for much contemporary preaching.

Sure and Certain Hope

Sure and Certain HopeSure and Certain Hope: Death and Burial in the Book of Common Prayer by Andrew Cinnamond.

The celebration of the 350th anniversary of the 1662 Book of Common Prayer has helped to stimulate a renewed interest in its teaching and fundamental contribution to Anglican identity. Archbishop Cranmer and others involved in the English Reformation knew well that the content and shape of the services and doctrine set out in the Prayer Book were vital ways of teaching congregations biblical truth and the principles of the Christian gospel.

Examining how a society views its dead is an important way of viewing how that society negotiates social and religious change and development. This work examines the impact of the Reformation on traditional medieval views of the dead and how the Book of Common Prayer encapsulates these developments, offering the Anglican Evangelical minster today a robustly biblical and Protestant platform for pastoral care and teaching.

From Cambridge to Colony: Charles Simeon's Enduring Influence on Christianity in Australia

mld2

Simeon’s magnum opus, his Horae Homileticae, famously contains the three questions by which Simeon hoped all his preaching would be judged: ‘Does it uniformly tend to humble the sinner? To exalt the Saviour? To promote holiness?’

The copy in Oxford’s Bodleian library also contains this inscription:
‘To the Chancellor and Scholars at Oxford for the Bodleian Library. A present from the Author in the humble hope, and with earnest prayer to God, that his efforts to diffuse the knowledge of Christ with all the wonders of Redeeming Love may not be in vain. Ch. Simeon, King’s College Cambridge 1833’.
In the essays which follow you will find ample evidence to conclude that his hope was realised and his prayers answered with a resounding ‘yes’.

The Genius of George Whitefield: Reflections on his ministry from 21st Century Africa

gwcThe essays contained in this volume originated as lectures delivered in August 2014 during ‘The Whitefield Symposium’ held at George Whitefield College, Cape Town, in partnership with Jonathan Edwards Centre Africa, to commemorate the 300th Anniversary of Whitefield’s birth.

‘Whitefield was a born actor, a born-again orator, and a tireless evangelistic preacher with a huge, heart-warming voice, a huge intensity as a communicator, and a grand strategy for making Christ known on both sides of the Atlantic.
... Happily this Symposium, scholarly and sympathetic, ... goes far towards doing him justice’
J. I. Packer, Theologian emeritus of the Anglican Church in North America.

Listen To Him

mst1Listen To Him: Reading and Preaching Emmanuel in Matthew  edited by Peter Bolt

"You are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins." All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: "The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel" (which means "God with us").

The essays collected here originated as papers given at the Annual Moore College School of Theology for 2014.

Like Matthew’s Gospel itself, they show a concern to place the good news about Jesus Christ in the context of God’s unfolding plan of salvation throughout the centuries. The history of Israel contains both promise and pattern that point ahead to the coming of Jesus Christ as the Messiah who will ‘save his people from their sins’.
