The 17 paged article with seven pages of endnotes affixed is entitled ‘A Great Thirst for Reading’: Andrew Fuller the Theological Reader’.

Chapter Seventeen The Dangers of using Non-Christian Cultural and Religious Terms in Bible Translations

Dear Friends,      Here is a preview of a chapter taken from my almost-finished work on the evangelization of India from Ziegenbalg to Carey. In this work I depart from the Anglo-American custom of using merely writings in the English language for research work and have used sources from some eight European languages and many Indian essays, books and dissertations […]

Bridging the Waters of Baptism: A dialogue on the right use of the ordinance

Introduction: How things began      The discussions recorded here are not fictive but have actually occurred. They did not take place in a pastor’s vestry or a private home or in the usual, traditional places where friends meet, but in internet chat-groups. To make matters easier, I shall reduce the forty-odd people who have debated on the subject […]

Has the God of Moses, Abraham, David and the Prophets a Different Righteousness to the God of the New Testament as some Christians now claim?

New times of apostasy      It would have seemed folly a few generations ago for a confessing Reformed Evangelical to ask such a question without earning the undoubtable and rather shocked answer, ‘No’. But we are living in new times of apostasy and sadly, the righteousness of God as displayed in all the Scriptures and […]

Randy Seiver’s Ten Questions

     Some years ago, I had a very stormy debate with Randy Seivers concerning his writings on the NCT and my response to them. Gradually, the storm died down and we started to discuss things amiably and calmly. I asked Randy to give me a detailed list of what he believed for my consideration which […]

The Relationship between Justification, Faith and God’s Eternal Existence

Part One: David Gay’s ‘Principles’ as displayed in his book Eternal Justification (I cannot comment line for line on this scandalous work as I would then have to write double the amount that Gay writes and quote much unedifying waffle. I thus comment in brief on Gay’s ‘Principles’ and shall follow up with further essays.) […]

Maurice Roberts and Hyper-Calvinism

Those ‘Theological Swearwords’ ‘Antinomianism and Hyper-Calvinism’ Again      Some years ago in the Evangelical Times, one of their directors, John Legg, referred to the terms ‘Antinomianism and Hyper-Calvinism’ as ‘theological swearwords’ and used them indiscriminately with his co-director Errol Hulse to describe my practice of preaching the whole of the gospel to the whole man […]
