The Protestant Faith

Przednia okładka
Fortress Press, 1 sty 1975 - 308
This new edition of a standard text describes lucidly and comprehensively the "classical Protestant faith" with the help of illustrations drawn from contemporary life. It does not assume previous knowledge yet does not avoid the more complex issues in Christian theology, such as the theories of the atonement or the doctrine of the trinity.In eight chapters the author explains, against many current misunderstandings, what Christians mean by faith. He describes the nature of revelation and the God who has revealed himself -- and what this means for an understanding of the world and the human condition in this world. This is followed by an explanation of the doctrine of Christ, his humanity and divinity, and his work on behalf of the human race.Professor Forell concludes with an explanation of the work of the Holy Spirit through the church by means of word and sacrament and details the Christian hope for the coming kingdom of God. The Protestant Faith has a valuable appendix which makes available the universal Christian creeds and confessional statements, and adds to its appeal as a text and reference manual.

Popularne fragmenty

Strona 141 - ALMIGHTY and most merciful Father; We have erred and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep : We have followed too much, the devices and desires of our own hearts : We have offended against thy holy laws : We have left undone those things which we ought to have done ; And we have done those things which we ought not to have done; And there is no health ia us.
Strona 255 - After we have received the Holy Ghost, we may depart from grace given, and fall into sin, and by the grace of God (we may) arise again, and amend our lives. And therefore they are to be condemned, which say, they can no more sin as long as they live here, or deny the place of forgiveness to such as truly repent.
Strona 257 - The visible Church of Christ is a congregation of faithful men, in the which the pure Word of God is preached, and the Sacraments be duly ministered according to Christ's ordinance, in all those things that of necessity are requisite to the same.
Strona 186 - My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.
Strona 22 - HOLY Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation : so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man, that it should be believed as an Article of the Faith, or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation.
Strona 223 - God, the first-born of all creation; for in him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or authorities — all things were created through him and for him. He is before all things and in him all things hold together.
Strona 238 - Who shall separate us from the love of Christ ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword ? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long ; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.
Strona 186 - When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory.
