Christian Book Guide - Reformed Theology
|Institutes of the Christian Religion|
By John Calvin
Theologian par excellence, Calvin is best known for his Institutes of the Christian Religion, a theological introduction to the Bible and vindication of Reformation principles. Beveridge's 1845 translation of Calvin's magnum opus is now available in a one-volume format that retains the pagination of the original two volumes.
|What is Reformed Theology?|
By R.C. Sproul
What is Reformed Theology? is an introduction to a doctrine that has eluded so many evangelical Christians. In thoroughly expounding the foundational doctrines and five points, Sproul asserts the reality of God's amazing grace. For anyone wanting to know more about Reformed theology, this candid book offers a coherent and complete introduction to an established belief.
|Whatever Happened to the Reformation?|
By R.C. Sproul
Bruce Ware, Darryl Hart, John MacArthur, and others join the editors in calling evangelicals to recover their Reformation roots. Too many evangelicals believe methodology and results trump theology. To reach a postmodern society they too readily adopt an unbiblical view of God that many Americans find more palatable. Or they subsume Bible study and preaching to secondary status. Whatever Happened to the Reformation? urges us to turn to the theology of the Reformers and allow it to shape every aspect of church and family life.
|Chosen by God|
By R.C. Sproul
Predestination, says Sproul, isn't just for Calvinists. It is for all biblical Christians. Predestination doesn't create a whimsical or spiteful picture of God, but paints the portrait of a loving God who provides redemption for radically corrupt humans. There is mystery in God's ways, but not contradiction. Point by point, Sproul examines the Scriptures on predestination and refutes the naysayers. Chosen by God is an excellent introduction to the Reformed or Calvinist view of God's sovereignty and God's election.
|The Doctrines of Grace|
By James Montgomery Boice & Philip Graham Ryken
Evangelicalism desperately needs to return to the doctrines that once before reformed the world: radical depravity, unconditional election, particular redemption, efficacious grace and persevering grace. James Boice and Philip Ryken not only provide a compelling exposition on these doctrines of grace, but also look briefly at their historical impact. They leave no doubt that the church suffers when these foundational truths are neglected and that she must return to a Christianity that is practically minded, kind hearted, and most importantly, biblically based.
|The Gospel of Grace|
By James Montgomery Boice
Asserting that many "born again" believers don't differ in their worldview from nonbelievers, Boice examines where Christians have strayed. He explores the church's need to return to foundational doctrines---Christ alone, Scripture alone, faith alone, grace alone, God's glory alone---and explains how these principles can shape a renewal in our hearts today.
|What is a True Calvinist|
By Philip Graham Ryken
This practical introduction to Reformed spirituality demonstrates, in Ryken's words, that "the doctrines of grace help to preserve all that is right and good in the Christian life: humility, holiness, and thankfulness, with a passion for prayer and evangelism." The booklet will introduce lay readers to Reformed distinctives. It is designed especially for use by Presbyterian and Reformed churches.

|What Is an Evangelical|
By Martyn Lloyd-Jones
Dr D. Martyn Lloyd Jones became deeply concerned with what he believed to be subtle but real shifts in commitment to the biblical gospel. His three addresses at the I.F.E.S. Conference in 1971 drew attention to this. If anything, his message is all the more urgently needed today than it was in 1971. This is a brilliant exposition of the true nature of evangelicalism and the foundation stones on which it was built.
