The Eschatology of George Gillespie: An Introductory Analysis and Evaluation By Steven Dilday
Paperback: $7.98
Prints in 3-5 business days
The seventeenth century was an age of heightened eschatological expectation. Reformation England and Scotland participated fully in this burgeoning interest in eschatology, and it was in this... More > context that George Gillespie studied and labored (1613-1648). The purpose of this essay is twofold. First, having been so influential at the Westminster Assembly, George Gillespie is a person of enduring interest, and worthy of ongoing study. This essay is offered as an introductory analysis and evaluation of the structure of Gillespie’s eschatological thought. Second, it will be readily apparent that Gillespie’s eschatological views are out of step, not only with those of contemporary Evangelicalism, but also with those of mainstream Reformed and Presbyterians in the early twenty-first century. This essay is offered in the hope that the presentation of Gillespie’s views might stimulate interest in, appreciation for, and further study of, the neglected and almost-forgotten eschatology of the Second Reformation.< Less
Postmodern Skepticism, Relativism, and Religious Toleration in the Light of the Westminster Standards and the Thought of George Gillespie By Steven Dilday
Paperback: $7.98

In this postmodern context, philosophical skepticism and relativism continue to make ever deeper inroads into the Western psyche. "How can one know what is real?" And, if one cannot be... More > sure that the human mind is in contact with reality (skepticism), then one’s worldview is little more than a personal preference (relativism). Almost any perspective (religious or otherwise) is tolerated provided that there be no assertion of objective truth and no attempt to impose it on others. The scope of the present essay is to shed old light on the present darkness. Skepticism and relativism are not new problems for Christian thinkers. The Second Reformation in England and Scotland is particularly worthy of consideration in this regard, for skepticism, relativism, and the appeal for a relativistic religious toleration were great obstacles to the completion of the reforming work. Indeed, the spiritual weapons forged in that bygone era are still “mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.”< Less

"[Y]ou will find in Poole's Synopsis a marvellous collection of all the wisdom ... of the critics.... Query--a query for which I will not demand an answer--has one of you ever beaten the dust... More > from the venerable copy of Poole which loads our library shelves? Yet as Poole spent no less than ten years in compiling it, it should be worthy of your frequent notice.... Matthew Poole also wrote Annotations upon the Word of God, in English, which are mentioned by Matthew Henry ... and he not only highly praises them, but declares that he has in his own work all along been brief upon that which Mr. Poole has more largely discussed, and has industriously declined what is to be found there.... On the whole, if I must have only one commentary, and had read Matthew Henry as I have, I do not know but what I should choose Poole. He is a very prudent and judicious commentator..."

Johann Heinrich Heidegger on the Office of Doctor By Steven Dilday

Johann Heinrich Heidegger (1633-1698) was one of the great Swiss theologians of the seventeenth century. He served as Professor of Theology at Zurich from 1667 to 1698. Heidegger is remembered for... More > his leading role in the drafting of the Formula Consensus Helveticus, a document, although moderate in tone, intended to unite the Swiss churches against the innovative theology of Saumur. His Corpus Theologiae Christianae is a massive and learned presentation of orthodox Reformed dogmatics. In the earliest days of the Church, and again at the time of the Reformation, there was a widespread consensus that there was an office of Doctor/Teacher, distinct from the office of Pastor. This office has all but disappeared from the life of the Reformed Churches. Is its disuse a reformation or a deformation of the Church? This translation of Heidegger's treatment of the office of Doctor is intended as a small contribution to the ongoing consideration of this important question. Domine, da lucem.< Less

Exegetical Studies in Poole's Synopsis: Genesis 9:19: Noah's Flood and the Genesis of the Ancient Myths By Steven Dilday
Paperback: $8.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Many of the oldest civilizations on earth have a Flood Story; it is not unique to the Bible. This has made its way into public education in the West: “Many ancient civilizations preserved a... More > story of a Great Deluge among their myths; and no one takes these old stories as anything but mythology. The Hebrew people were participants in this milieu; it is not particularly surprising that they have a version of the Flood Story. But, their version is worthy of no more credit than any of the others." But is there not something more that might be said about this? Euhemerus, a fourth century BC mythographer, argued that the ancient myths have historical roots in actual events, the accounts of which have been corrupted and/or exaggerated over time. As Christianity began to spread through the Greco-Roman world, a school of Christian Euhemerism began developing almost immediately, and continued in some strength into the early modern era. Could it be that the ancient myths are perversions of the Biblical history?< Less
