RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 499079538 LA English T1 The marrow of modern divinity A1 Fisher, Edward,, Boston, Thomas,, PB Christian Focus Publications PP Ross-shire, Scotland YR 2009 SN 9781845504793 1845504798 AB An intriguing book, quite unlike any other, The Marrow of Modern Divinity defies pigeonholing. It was written in the 1600s by an author of whom we know little, yet it proved to be a critically important and controversial theological text. Penned as dialogue between a minister (Evangelista), a young Christian (Neophytus), a legalist (Nomista) who believes Christianity is a set of rules to be obeyed and Antinomista who thinks it's okay to sin because God will forgive him anyway, it makes for a wonderfully insightful book that remains tremendously relevant for our world today. This newly laid out and eagerly awaited edition includes explanatory notes by the famous puritan Thomas Boston, an Introduction by Philip Ryken and an historical Introduction by William Vandoodewaard. - Publisher.
