|None Greater: The Undomesticated Attributes of God|
By Matthew Barrett / Baker Books
For too long, Christians have domesticated God, bringing him down to our level as if he is a God who can be tamed. But he is a God who is high and lifted up, the Creator rather than the creature, someone than whom none greater can be conceived. If God is the most perfect, supreme being, infinite and incomprehensible, then certain perfect-making attributes must be true of him. Perfections like aseity, simplicity, immutability, impassibility, and eternity shield God from being crippled by creaturely limitations. At the same time, this all-powerful, all-knowing, and all-wise God accommodates himself, exhibiting perfect holiness, mercy, and love as he makes known who he is and how he will save us.The attributes of God show us exactly why God is worthy of worship: there is none like him. Join Matthew Barrett as he rediscovers these divine perfections and finds himself surprised by the God he thought he knew.
|The Forgotten Trinity: Recovering the Heart of Christian Belief, Repackaged Edition|
By James R. White / Bethany House
While many of us struggle to understand it, the Trinity is one of the most important teachings of the Christian faith. It defines God’s very essence and describes how he relates to us. And while it can be a difficult concept to get our heads around, it is crucial for believers to understand how God explains his triune nature in his Word.In this book, James R. White offers a concise, understandable explanation of what the Trinity is and why it matters. While refuting the distortions of God presented by various cults, Dr. White shows how understanding this teaching leads to renewed worship and a deeper understanding of what it means to be a Christian. And amid today’s emphasis on the renewing work of the Holy Spirit, The Forgotten Trinity is a balanced look at all three persons of the Trinity.
|The Triune God [New Studies in Dogmatics]|
By Fred Sanders / Zondervan
In The Triune God, a volume from the New Studies in Dogmatics series, professor Fred Sanders provides a thoughtful, concise, and unconventional treatment of this often misunderstood Christian doctrine, arguing that the way in which the Trinity was revealed is central to making dogmatic conclusions. Sanders interacts with major voices from the history of doctrine, and his arguments are indebted to and informed by the great Trinitarian tradition. His approach begins with offering praise to invoke the Triune God and engages the reader in what is essentially a spiritual exercise.
About the Series— New Studies in Dogmatics seeks to retrieve the riches of Christian doctrine for the sake of contemporary theological renewal. Following in the tradition of G. C. Berkouwer’s Studies in Dogmatics, this series will provide thoughtful, concise, and readable treatments of major theological topics, expressing the biblical, creedal, and confessional shape of Christian doctrine for a contemporary evangelical audience. The editors and contributors share a common conviction that the way forward in constructive systematic theology lies in building upon the foundations laid in the church’s historic understanding of the Word of God as professed in its creeds, councils, and confessions, and by its most trusted teachers.
|God the Son Incarnate: The Doctrine of Christ|
By Stephen J. Wellum / Crossway
From leading theologian Stephen Wellum comes a systematic summary of Christology from a biblical and historical perspective. God the Son Incarnate, a contribution to the Foundations of Evangelical Theology series, explains the epistemological, biblical, and ecclesiological warrants for faith in Jesus Christ, building to the ultimate conclusion that Christ is God the Son incarnate and the most important figure in the fullness of God’s work. Wellum’s treatment of the development of the doctrine of Christ offers the church a brilliant introduction and survey of the crucial components of robust evangelical Christology. He not only lays out the biblical data that grounds the church’s Christology, but also leads readers, seminarians, pastors, scholars, and lay readers alike to discover afresh how to know Jesus Christ and to proclaim him as he truly is, the Lord of Glory who is life eternal.
