Historians and theologians alike have long recognized that at the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were the five solas: sola scriptura, solus Christus, sola gratia, sola fide, and soli Deo gloria. These five solas do not merely summarize what the Reformation was all about but have served to distinguish Protestantism ever since. They set Protestants apart in a unique way as those who place ultimate and final authority in the Scriptures, acknowledge the work of Christ alone as sufficient for redemption, recognize that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone, and seek to not only give God all of the glory but to do all things vocationally for his glory. 2017 will mark the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. And yet, even in the twenty-first century we need the Reformation more than ever. As James Montgomery Boice said not long ago, while the Puritans sought to carry on the Reformation, today “we barely have one to carry on, and many have even forgotten what that great spiritual revolution was all about.” Therefore, we “need to go back and start again at the very beginning. We need another Reformation.”[1] In short, it is crucial not only to remember what the solas of the Reformation were all about, but also to apply these solas in a fresh way in light of many contemporary challenges.

Historians and theologians alike have long recognized that at the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were five declarations (or “solas”) that distinguished the movement from other expressions of the Christian faith. Five hundred years later, we live in a different time with fresh challenges to our faith. Yet these rallying cries of the Reformation continue to speak to us, addressing a wide range of contemporary issues. The Five Solas series will help you understand the historical and biblical context of the five solas and how to live out the relevance of Reformation theology today. In God’s Word Alone—The Authority of Scripture, scholar and pastor Matthew Barrett looks at the historical and biblical roots of the doctrine that Scripture alone is the final and decisive authority for God’s people. He examines the development of this theme in the Reformation and traces the crisis that followed resulting in a shift away from the authority of Scripture. Barrett shows that we need to recover a robust doctrine of Scripture’s authority in the face of today’s challenges and why a solid doctrinal foundation built on God’s Word is the best hope for the future of the church.

Historians and theologians have long recognized that at the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were five declarations, often referred to as the ‘solas’: sola scriptura, solus Christus, sola gratia, sola fide, and soli Deo gloria. These five statements summarize much of what the Reformation was about, and they distinguish Protestantism from other expressions of the Christian faith. Protestants place ultimate and final authority in the Scriptures, acknowledge the work of Christ alone as sufficient for redemption, recognize that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone, and seek to do all things for God’s glory. In God’s Glory Alone—The Majestic Heart of Christian Faith and Life, renowned scholar David VanDrunen looks at the historical and biblical roots of the idea that all glory belongs to God alone. He examines the development of this theme in the Reformation, in subsequent Reformed theology and confessions, and in contemporary theologians who continue to be inspired by the conviction that all glory belongs to God. Then he turns to the biblical story of God's glory, beginning with the pillar of cloud and fire revealed to Israel, continuing through the incarnation, death, and exaltation of the Lord Jesus Christ, and culminating in Christ's Second Coming and the glorification of his people. In light of these wonderful biblical themes he concludes by addressing several of today's great cultural challenges and temptations—such as distraction and narcissism—and reflecting on how commitment to God's glory alone fortifies us to live godly lives in this present evil age.

Historians and theologians alike have long recognized that at the heart of the sixteenth-century Protestant Reformation were five declarations (or “solas”) that distinguished the movement from other expressions of the Christian faith. Five hundred years later, we live in a different time with fresh challenges to our faith. Yet these rallying cries of the Reformation continue to speak to us, addressing a wide range of contemporary issues. The Five Solas series will help you understand the historical and biblical context of the five solas and how to live out the relevance of Reformation theology today. In Christ Alone, Stephen Wellum considers Christ’s singular uniqueness and significance biblically, historically, and today, in our pluralistic and postmodern age. He examines the historical roots of the doctrine, especially in the Reformation era, and then shows how the uniqueness of Christ has come under specific attack today. Then, he walks us through the storyline of Scripture, from Christ’s unique identity and work as prophet, priest, and king, to the application of his work to believers and our covenantal union with him to show that apart from Christ there is no salvation. Wellum shows that we must recover a robust biblical and theological doctrine of Christ’s person and work in the face of today’s challenges and explains why a fresh appraisal of the Reformation understanding of Christ alone is needed today.

Protestants place ultimate and final authority in the Scriptures, acknowledge the work of Christ alone as sufficient for redemption, recognize that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone, and seek to do all things for God’s glory. In Faith Alone – The Doctrine of Justification renowned biblical scholar Thomas Schreiner looks at the historical and biblical roots of the doctrine of justification. He summarizes the history of the doctrine, looking at the early church and the writings of several of the Reformers. Then, he turns his attention to the Scriptures and walks readers through an examination of the key texts in the Old and New Testament. He discusses whether justification is transformative or forensic and introduces readers to some of the contemporary challenges to the Reformation teaching of sola fide, with particular attention to the new perspective on Paul. Five hundred years after the Reformation, the doctrine of justification by faith alone still needs to be understood and proclaimed. In Faith Alone you will learn how the rallying cry of “sola fide” is rooted in the Scriptures and how to apply this sola in a fresh way in light of many contemporary challenges.

Dieses eBook: "Vom unfreien Willen (An Erasmus von Rotterdam) - Vollständige Ausgabe" ist mit einem detaillierten und dynamischen Inhaltsverzeichnis versehen und wurde sorgfältig korrekturgelesen. Erasmus und Luther haben sich nie persönlich kennengelernt, korrespondierten jedoch mehr oder weniger öffentlich ab 1519 miteinander. Während Luther eine „harte Linie“ gegen das aus seiner Sicht dekadente Papsttum der römisch-katholischen Kirche vertrat, setzte sich Erasmus für „innere Reformen“ ein und bat Luther um Mäßigung. Auch in religiösen Fragen zeigten sich bald Unterschiede. Während Erasmus die These aufstellte, Gott habe dem Menschen einen freien Willen gegeben, zwischen dem Guten und dem Bösen zu wählen, der freilich nur mit Gottes Gnade wirksam werden könne, argumentierte Luther mit der Erbsünde und der Allmacht Gottes, durch die jede Tat des Menschen vorausbestimmt sei. Luther verglich den menschlichen Willen mit einem Pferd, „das der Teufel reitet“ oder das Gott lenkt. Es sei unmöglich, einen der beiden Reiter loszuwerden, denn jedes menschliche Schicksal sei vorbestimmt und endet entweder in der Hölle oder im Himmel. Gottes Liebe und Hass seien ewig und unverrückbar, schrieb Luther in seiner Erwiderung an Erasmus, sie seien schon gewesen, „ehe der Welt Grund gelegt ward“, noch ehe es einen Willen oder Werke des Willens gab. Martin Luther (1483-1546) war der theologische Urheber der Reformation. Erasmus von Rotterdam (1466-1536) war ein bedeutender europäischer Gelehrter des Humanismus. Er war Theologe, Philosoph, Philologe und Autor zahlreicher Bücher.

The covenant of redemption (pactum salutis), the eternal intra-trinitarian covenant, was a common staple within Early Modern Reformed theology, yet there are very few historical works that examine this doctrine. J. V. Fesko’s study, The Covenant of Redemption: Origins, Development, and Reception, seeks to address this lacuna. In the contemporary period the covenant of redemption has been derided as speculative, mythological, a declension from trinitarianism, or erroneously derived from one or two biblical proof-texts. Yet seldom have critics carefully engaged the primary sources to examine the different formulations, supporting exegesis, and ways in which the doctrine was employed. Far from speculation, sub-trinitarian, or a cold business transaction, proponents of the covenant of redemption constructed this doctrine based upon a web of interconnected biblical texts and were very sensitive to maintaining a robust doctrine of the trinity, as they employed this doctrine as a bulwark against the anti-trinitarian claims of Socinian theologians. Proponents of the doctrine also saw this pre-temporal covenant as the embodiment of intra-trinitarian love that overflows unto those chosen in Christ for their salvation and ultimate fellowship with the triune God. John V. Fesko explores the historical origins of the doctrine and then surveys its development in the seventeenth- through nineteenth-centuries, examining key advocates of the doctrine including, David Dickson, Herman Witsius, Johannes Cocceius, Francis Turretin, Patrick Gillespie, John Gill, Jonathan Edwards, Charles Hodge, and A. A. Hodge. He then examines the contemporary reception of the doctrine in the twentieth century with a survey of the doctrine’s critics, including Karl Barth, Herman Hoeksema, Klaas Schilder, and John Murray. After exploring the claims of the critics, the study moves to examine the views of twentieth-century proponents, including Geerhardus Vos, Herman Bavinck, Abraham Kuyper, Louis Berkhof, and G. C. Berkouwer.

Stephen J. Hamilton attempts to create a “portrait” of “born-again” Christianity by providing a general introduction to the doctrine of regeneration, including its development in modernity, as well as short exegeses of relevant scriptural texts, followed by a close reading of four theologians – Philipp Jakob Spener, Jonathan Edwards, Friedrich D.E. Schleiermacher, and Charles G. Finney – who all associate the doctrine of regeneration with an experience of presence in the individual believer.In light of these analyses, he then traces a general theological structure of the “born-again” understanding of regeneration, including a catalogue of theological issues over which there is significant disagreement, in order to create a topography of “born-again” theologies. In the final section, he applies these results to contemporary conversion narratives of non-theologians. It is in such conversion narratives, the author argues, that theologians can discover an implicit, “lived” theology that reveals how doctrines are perceived and put into practice among Christians. Accordingly, this is to be understood as the result of the creative reciprocity between (often tacit) theological convictions and the experiences of the Christian life. The final chapter, as a coda to the entire work, offers some concluding reflections on the present cultural and political situation in the USA pertaining to “born-again” Christianity and argues against any oversimplifications of the relationship between “born-again” theologies, culture, and politics.

Mit Luther auf die Wartburg und mit Berlichingen auf Raubzug ... Der Autor des Spiegelbestsellers Als Deutschland noch nicht Deutschland war legt nach: Eine Zeitreise in Luthers Deutschland Martin Luther lag erst ein gutes Jahr in der Wittenberger Schlosskirche im Sarg, als im Frühling 1547 von den Türmen seiner alten Predigtkirche, der Stadtkirche St. Marien, die Aufbauten von den Türmen genommen wurden. Auf die freigemachten Plattformen sollten Kanonen gehievt werden, mit denen man die Landsknechte Karls V. vom Sturm auf die Stadt abhalten wollte. Letztendlich wurde die Stadt friedlich übergeben; Wittenberg wurde nicht geplündert. Luthers Leichnam wurde nicht aus dem Grab geholt und verbrannt, um noch posthum die Reichsacht an ihm zu vollstrecken – obwohl es Stimmen gab, die dies forderten. Die Türme bekamen neue Spitzhelme – und erst ein halbes Jahrtausend später (bei Restaurierungsarbeiten im Jahr 1910) fand man eine von Philipp Melanchthon handschriftlich verfasste Chronik der Zeit – einer Zeit, die bewegter, aber (für Deutschland) auch zukunftsformender kaum hätte sein können.Bruno Preisendörfer schaut Luther und vielen seiner Zeitgenossen über die Schulter, wir erleben ihr öffentliches Wirken, aber auch ihren Alltag. Mit Götz von Berlichingen überfallen wir Nürnberger Kauf leute und werden selbst von Nürnbergern belagert. Wir sehen den Fuggern in ihrem Augsburger Kontor auf die Finger und machen uns mit den Welsern bei der Ausbeutung Venezuelas die Hände schmutzig. Albrecht Dürer lernen wir beim Malen kennen, Hans Sachs beim Versemachen und Luthers Frau Katharina bei der Haushaltsführung – bis wir mit ihr vor der Pest aus Wittenberg fliehen. Wir erleben, wie mühsam die Alltagsverrichtungen sind, vom Zubereiten der Mahlzeiten bis zum Beschaffen der Kleidung. Wir reihen uns in Landsknechte-Haufen ein, proben mit fränkischen und thüringischen Bauern den Aufstand, lauschen brav den Predigern und fürchten uns vor dem Jüngsten Gericht.
