SPECIAL DISCOUNT TITLES FROM P&R PUBLISHING
Boettner, Orrick, Nichols, Barrett, Boice

(1) THE REFORMED DOCTRINE OF PREDESTINATION by Loraine Boettner

One of the most thorough and convincing statements on predestination to have appeared in any language. The Reformed Doctrine of Predestination has been regarded as the authoritative work in this field. A contemporary classic.

"Not only a clear and cogent presentation of the Reformed Doctrine of Predestination but of all the great distinctive doctrines of the Reformed Faith. . . . The practical importance of Calvinism is stressed. The chapter on Calvinism in History will prove illuminating to many."—Christianity Today

"A book that will live for years as one of the most scholarly, helpful and interesting discussions of a difficult subject."—The Sunday School Times

"The mantle of Dr. Warfield, Calvinism's most distinguished expositor and defender of the last generations, seems to have fallen on Dr. Boettner's shoulders."—The Expositor

(2) THE CHRISTIAN ATTITUDE TOWARD WAR by Loraine Boettner

Sometimes we hear it said that all war is wrong-wrong for the defenders as well as for the aggressors-and that even when waged with sincere purpose of restraining evil, it tends to produce greater evils than those against which it is directed. It was in response to that view that Loraine Boettner wrote this compelling volume, first published in 1940. Now in an updated, third edition, Dr. Boettner brings biblical and historical data to bear upon issues of mounting concern, such as: What causes war; the relationship between military and police force; can there be a just war; the premises of pacifism; the consequences of war; the limits of obedience to the government; war as judgment on nations; nuclear weapons. Boettner's crisp analysis of these and other issues makes this book a valuable and enduring statement on the ever-crucial matters of war and peace.

(3) MERE CALVINISM: WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT CALVINISM? by Jim Orrick

There are so many misconceptions about Calvinism that it is safe to say that even most Christians do not truly know what it teaches. You may have grown up in a Reformed church, or you may have heard about Calvinism mostly in arguments. Either way, it may surprise you to know that this belief has huge, and very positive, implications for a believer’s daily life!

Jim Orrick clears up misinformation about Calvinism and explains its basic yet profound ideas and teachings—using the Bible as the basis for everything he says.

“Has characteristics that stand out beyond . . . other worthy expositions. . . . Reads like a good story, incorporating a literary artfulness that is rare in this subject matter.” —Thomas J. Nettles

(4) ASSURED BY GOD: Living in the Fullness of God's Grace, ed. by Buck Parsons (2nd edition w/ Study Questions)

"The key to fruitfulness...is to have a life that is founded solidly on the assurance of one's salvation in Christ. The unsure Christian is the Christian who lacks stability in his or her faith. The unsure Christian is tossed to and fro with every wind of doctrine. The unsure Christian is easy prey for the assault of Satan, who does everything in his power to undermine the Christian's confidence of salvation in Christ. A Christian who lacks such confidence can easily become trapped in insecurity and may lack the boldness to venture out into the domain of a fallen world, armed with the whole armor of God...It is my prayer that those who read this volume will have those vacillating doubts that weaken their profession removed once and for all, so that they may be fully equipped to be fruit bearers in the vineyard of Christ."- R. C. Sproul, from the Foreword

(5) SALVATION BY GRACE: The Case for Effectual Calling and Regeneration by Matthew Barrett

In Salvation by Grace, Matthew Barrett comprehensively defends the doctrine of monergism (the teaching that regeneration is exclusively the work of God) primarily by looking at Scripture but also by examining Reformed theologians and confessions. Barrett also provides a helpful evaluation of both the Arminian position and contemporary attempts to chart a middle course between Calvinistic and Arminian systems.

“ ‘Salvation is of the Lord.’ All Christians would affirm this good news. Yet only monergism carries it through to the end, without equivocation. In this winsome and well-researched defense, Matthew Barrett clears away the brush—caricatures and distortions on both sides of the debate—to expose the wonder of God’s amazing grace.”—Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Systematic Theology and Apologetics, Westminster Seminary California

“Matthew Barrett’s work on regeneration represents scholarship at its best. His book is exegetically convincing and theologically profound, with significant pastoral consequences.”—Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky

“Matthew Barrett lays out the historical, theological, and biblical material, and presents a compelling case for classic anti-Pelagian theology. Very helpful.”— Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia

(6) SOLID GROUND: The Inerrant Word of God in an Errant World by Boice, Clowney, Dever, Duncan, Packer, Phillips, Ryken & Sproul

This is a book about the Book. Not just a book, but the Book—the Word of God written, the only infallible rule of truth and practice for our lives.

Sadly that distinction is necessary, because there are many who question whether the Bible deserves to be called the Book, or whether it is just a book—a very special book, to be sure, but not the Book that perfectly illumines all things. And the more they chip away at the full confidence that believers must have in the trustworthiness of Scripture, the more they rob its Author of the glory that his Word displays and demands.

What's worse is that these attacks, more and more, are coming from those who claim to be believers themselves.

Here the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology explores the Author’s glory by unfolding the richness and perfection of the Bible. In essays collected from the best addresses on the subject, eight of the top pastor-scholars of the past thirty years share their insight and answers on:

J. I. Packer—On Knowing God: The Word and the World

J. Ligon Duncan III—The Sufficient Word of God

R. C. Sproul—The Truth of God

James M. Boice—Scripture Alone

Richard D. Phillips—God’s Mighty Word

Mark Dever—The Word in the Church

Philip Graham Ryken—The Accessible Word

Edmund P. Clowney—Preaching: The Means of Revival

Together they issue a clarion call for the church to return to its central, long-standing, and vital conviction that the Bible is the Book—the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God.

(7) PERSPECTIVES ON PENTECOST: New Testament Teaching on the Gifts of the Holy Spirit by Richard Gaffin

With exegetical depth, objectivity, and clarity Richard B. Gaffin examines prophecy and tongues and makes a case for the cessation of both gifts at the close of the apostolic era.

Pentecost is presented as integral to the once-for-all work of Christ and decisive for the life of the whole church. Dr. Gaffin's biblical-theological perspective is thorough: he defines all the spiritual gifts generally; he clarifies the nature of prophecy and tongues and the question of their continuance in the church today; and he indicates how these exegetical studies bear on contemporary interest in charismatic gifts.

'Perspectives on Pentecost' dispels the emotionalism and confusion now surrounding the charismatic movement. It is a reliable study for all Bible students and an especially helpful handbook for those either associated with the charismatic movement or who must deal with friends or family members involved in tongues-speaking experiences.

(8) THE HOLY SPIRIT: His Person & Ministry by Edwin H. Palmer

Because of the importance of the subject, its comparative neglect, and the lack of popular up-to-date scriptural study of the Holy Spirit with an emphasis beyond the Christian life, Edwin H. Palmer wrote The Holy Spirit more than forty years ago. The publisher is returning this important book to print so that a new generation may benefit from it.

"A fine, comprehensive modern study of the work of the Spirit. This fresh treatment takes up such questions as how the Spirit guides us." W.J. Grier

(9) THESE LAST DAYS: A Christian View of History ed. by Richard Phillips & Gabriel N.E. Fluher

Reformed Christians have often avoided the field of eschatology—but it was this doctrine of history that thrilled the first disciples. They realized that with the coming of the “last days” they had entered the time of the kingdom, and this understanding will strengthen our faith too.

Here the Philadelphia Conference on Reformed Theology addresses this important topic and presents the following speakers’ insights on:

Sinclair Ferguson—The Christ of History

D. A. Carson—This Present Evil Age

Alistair Begg—The Age of the Spirit

Michael S. Horton—The Resurrection Hope

J. Ligon Duncan III—The Eternal Glory

D. A. Carson—Partakers of the Age to Come

Cornelis P. Venema—The Four Main Millennial Views

Richard D. Phillips—A Pastoral Guide to Life After Death

Jeffrey K. Jue—Evangelical Eschatology, American Style

Paul David Tripp—The Radical Implications of Eternity

(10) WHY JOHNNY CAN'T PREACH: The Media Have Shaped the Messengers by T. David Gordon

An analysis of shifts in dominant media forms and their effects on the sensibilities of the culture as a whole. Many of those shifts have profound, and unfortunate, effects on preaching.
