Hesperus By JEAN PAUL FRIEDRICH RICHTER
eBook (ePub): $2.99

More > accomplished schoolmaster, who early in his career became a Lutheran pastor at Schwarzenbach, on the Saale. Young Richter entered Leipzig University in 1780, specially to study theology, but became one of the most eccentric and erratic of students, a veritable literary gypsy, roaming over vast fields of literature, collating and noting immense stores of scientific, artistic, historic, and philosophic facts.

Doctrinal Divinity By John Gill
eBook (ePub): $1.99
In Doctrinal Divinity, 18th century Baptist apologist John Gill presents a robustly Calvinist system of theology. Gill aims to develop a way of understanding and speaking about God, namely, a way to... More > make sense of God's nature and works. To set the foundation for this project, Gill first discusses the evidence for God's existence and then moves on to establish the Divine authority of Scripture. Gill then explores God's characteristics in light of God's covenant with the chosen elect. Gill provides a Reformed perspective on the three-person Godhead, ultimately arguing for "the plurality of the Trinity in the unity of the Divine." The book concludes with a discussion of the final predicament of man. Gill relies heavily on Biblical passages but also cites relevant literature from ancient poets and Greek philosophers. Since Gill's style is both narrative and exegetical, Doctrinal Divinity offers an engaging read for all audiences. -Emmalon Davis, CCEL Staff Writer< Less
Adornment of the Spritual Marriage By St. John of Ruysbroeck
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Adornment of the Spiritual Marriage is just one of the three works included in this version of St. John of Ruysbroek's (1293-1381) writings. It also includes The Sparkling Stone and The Book of... More > Supreme Truth. St. John is well-known as a Christian mystic of Flemish descent who spent most of his life in solitude. Adornment of the Spiritual Marriage is a study of the Bible's metaphor of Christ as the Bridegroom and the church as the Bride, a "marriage" that produces perfect union. Union with God is also the theme of The Sparkling Stone and The Book of Supreme Truth, where St. John describes several mystical levels of union with God in which the human body and mind are forgotten. St. John is known for having an extraordinary propensity for theology and philosophy, and his works exhibit his great mind. These classic pieces of spiritual literature are rife with imagistic language and readers will be in awe of this spiritual giant's mind. -Abby Zwart, CCEL Staff Writer< Less

Portrayals of “Man's Humiliation” in the Works of John Bunyan and Jonathan Edwards By Manuela Renz
Hardcover: List Price: $30.12 $18.07 | You Save: 40%
Prints in 3-5 business days
A thrilling, comparative study on "Portrayals of Man's Humiliation” in the writings of the Puritan authors John Bunyan and Jonathan Edwards. It becomes obvious that one recurrent theme of... More > both authors is man's depravity. What catches the eye is the way the two writers deal with this topic and how they present it. Both authors employ vivid pictures, using the power of imagery to paint the most impressive portrayals of man's precarious state. Each of them outdoes himself in employing all literary tools at hand to effect a deep, profound and lasting impact that sticks in one's mind. To arrive at a "right" concept of man's nature seems to be of paramount importance to the two of them. Undoubtedly, they have succeeded in leaving an impact not only on theology, but also on literature. As a transnational project this study turns its attention to portrayals of man's humiliation as conceived by J. Bunyan and J. Edwards and the role of spiritual autobiography and self-expression within this context.< Less
