God Has Spoken: A History of Christian Theology

An important aspect of studying Scripture is understanding and studying the history of how Christian doctrine has been formulated over the years. Having a valuable resource available that traces that journey, noting the key points to include the why and how of why certain doctrines were held firm and others rejected, is indeed an important addition to an believer’s bookshelf. Gerald Bray’s book, God Has Spoken: A History of Christian Theology, is just that helpful compendium.

Bitesize Biographies: Samuel Rutherford

I would venture to say that most believers today have little to no idea who Samuel Rutherford is or his importance, especially within the Scottish Church in the 1600s. Part of the issue with that unfortunate lack of knowledge is the lack of focus on matters of church history within the body of Christ. Many great men and women of God from days past are relative unknowns to most believers and I find that very unfortunate. Richard Hannula, in his contribution to the excellent Bitesize Biographies series, explores the life and influence of Samuel Rutherford. Those who are turned...
