“Reaching the World for Christ” Conference

Over the weekend, Dr. Gabe Fluhrer (a very good, powerful speaker, who is Derek Thomas’s assistant pastor in Columbia, South Carolina) and I spoke three times each for a conference on evangelism titled “Reaching the World for Christ,” sponsored by the Heritage Reformed Congregation of Kinnelon, New Jersey. Dr. Fluhrer spoke on “The ‘Must’ of Evangelism,” on “Defending the Faith,” and on “Living in Hope.” I spoke on “Calvin’s Evangelism,” on “Being All Things to All Men,” and on “The Spirit’s Age and Revival.” It was a nostalgic time for us as this church is part of the church that I served for 5.5 years 33 years ago, so it was great re-connecting with many old friends, including the two hospitable couples who hosted us, Dave and Gerda VandeVrede and John and Deb VanVugt. Here we are with two former PRTS graduates and their spouses and children who are serving in this area.

Judges-Ruth Journible Now Available

The Judges-Ruth Journible by Rob Wynalda and me just arrived. Pray that God will continue to use the writing out of His Word and the questions asked in these books to fulfil His promise in Deuteronomy 17:18-20 that the writing and reading of His Word will be a great blessing for people all over the globe.

Learning About Marriage from Our Spiritual Fathers

We have much to learn from the Puritans. This is especially true in our understanding of marriage and family—the Puritans wrote 29 books on these subjects! In this important message, “Learning About Marriage from our Spiritual Fathers,” I show how important the biblical view of marriage was to the Puritans. These theological giants preached, wrote, and counseled extensively on this vitally important institution and we would benefit greatly if we listened to their biblical instruction and applied it to our marriages today. https://ncfic.org/resources/197981

Conversations 6: My Current Video and Book Projects

People often ask me what projects I am currently working on. Here, in the final video in this conversations series, I talk about Puritan: All of Life to the Glory of God  and Reformed Systematic Theology (4 volumes, volume 1 coming out in March).

Conversations 5: People-Pleasing in the Church

Even when Christians affirm Reformed doctrine, they still face the temptation to attract more people to our churches by people-pleasing. Here, in this fifth video in this series, I talk about this grave spiritual danger and how it leads us to contradict our confessed beliefs and eats the heart out of godliness.

Conversations 4: Encouragements and Concerns about the North American Church

There are encouraging signs of God’s Spirit working in the church in North America today. However, there are also areas where we need further spiritual reformation. In this video, part four in its series, I highlight three areas of concern: the need to regulate worship by the Word, the danger of worldliness in the church, and the importance of preaching that is biblical, doctrinal, and experiential.

What Makes Reformed Systematic Theology Special?

We are so grateful to God that Crossway is publishing the first volume of our new book, Reformed Systematic Theology. However, we are well aware that there are many good books of theology already available for Christians. We ourselves often make use of them in our studies, quote them in our books, and thank God for the truths we have learned from them. In this video, I discuss what makes Reformed Systematic Theology special among the various systematic theologies published today.
