Presbyterianism Re-asserted By Mark Hausam
eBook (PDF): $0.00
Presbyterianism and denominationalism are naturally mortal enemies. Presbyterianism calls for one visible church of Christ, while denominationalism is satisfied with multiple visible churches of... More > Christ. Presbyterianism calls for a collegial presbyerate governing the universal church, while denominationalism requires no formal mutual submission between denominations. In this book, Mark Hausam takes a close look at the system of Presbyterian church government (both in terms of its biblical foundations and its historic articulations) and examines its implications for how divided denominations should relate to each other. The conclusion is that denominational division is a far more serious matter than many in modern Reformed churches would like to think, and that the toleration of denominationalism common in many Reformed circles raises the question of how consistent our Presbyterian practice in this area really is.< Less

A Vindication of the Keys of the Kingdom of Heaven into the Hands of the Right Owners By C. Matthew McMahon & Daniel Cawdrey
Paperback: $10.99
Prints in 3-5 business days
Dr. Edmund Calamy called Daniel Cawdrey, “a man of great consideration, eminently learned, and a noted member of the assembly of divines.” Over 10,000 documents on the subject of church... More > government during the time of the Westminster Assembly were written and published. Daniel Cawdrey was among the most able writers in defense of Presbyterial Government. In this work Cawdrey deals with the issue of authority, power, rule, ordination, church planting and lawful preaching. He writes against the prolific writer and minister of New England congregationalism, John Cotton. Cotton had written a number of tracts, and Cawdrey answers them ably. In Cawdrey’s lucid arguments, one must take notice of the quandary that John Cotton falls quickly into; contradiction and confusion. Cawdrey's desire is to unite the churches of Jesus Christ, not separate them. He is writing against schism, with a desire for people to think rightly about the topic, to see Christ’s church united, not ripped apart.< Less
