St. Augustine's role in the Pelagian controversy, wherein a popular theologian issued beliefs contrary to those of the Catholic order, is explained within. Pelagius was a popular figure in Rome and... More > wider Christendom; thought to have hailed from the British Isles, his multilingualism, learned stature and obvious ascetic leanings made him a well-recognized and appreciated Christian. Years of preaching in Rome in the 4th and 5th centuries affected Pelagius' views; in particular, he felt that those who pled their very humanity was the reason for their sins and wrongdoing were abominable. In his writings, little of which survive to the modern day, Pelagius offers an alternative theology based on readings of the New Testament. The Augustinian notion of original sin - that sin is inherited to all humanity since the fall of Adam and Eve - is rejected by Pelagius, who felt that individual humans have the capacity to shape their own spiritual destiny through both piety and moral living.< Less

Counterfeit Miracles: A History of Fake Miracles and Healings in the Christian and Catholic Traditions, with Arguments in Favor of Cessationism (Hardcover) By Benjamin B. Warfield

Benjamin Warfield chronicles and explains the false and discredited miracles performed since the Middle Ages, and puts forth cessationism as an explanation for the miracles described in the Bible. A... More > committed believer in the power of Christ, Benjamin Warfield strongly disagreed with aspects of modern Christianity on the nature and credibility of miracles. Familiar with a vast array of examples from over the past thousand years, Warfield shows how many miracles were exposed as falsehoods. The rejection of miracles is, for the author, part of his Protestant identity: the Catholic notion that miracles may still occur, is falsehood and superstition. For the author, miracles appeared and belonged solely in the Revelatory Period - the ancient time in which Jesus lived and preached his principles to followers. Their appearance is not frequent or spontaneous, and is always justified by a series of prefacing events. Their origin is with God and God alone, and each carries a decisive explanation.< Less

The Saviour of the World: Sermons preached in the Chapel of Princeton Theological Seminary By Benjamin B. Warfield
Paperback: List Price: $9.99 $5.00 | You Save: 50%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Notable in the Presbyterian tradition, Benjamin B. Warfield’s sermons on the history and significance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour are as lively, informed and embracing today as... More > ever. Delivered at the end of the 19th century, these lectures are unflinching in accuracy and frankness: not a man to mince words or bluster, Warfield tells us who Jesus was and what He meant for the faithful of the world. The undoubted accomplishments of Christ, and his sacrifice for the sake of mankind, are detailed with the authoritative quotation of scripture. Warfield was a conservative even in his time: revivalism, which the author felt to be a distraction from the core teachings of Christ, has no presence in this work. For readers seeking a classic perspective on the life of Christ, this book is one which confronts the topics at hand with boldness. For years, Warfield ran the Princeton Theological Seminary, an institution which to this day is influential in educating those who will become Presbyterian ministers.< Less
