Free Stuff Fridays
January 28, 2011
Today’s Free Stuff Fridays sponsor is once again CBD Reformed. CBD Reformed is always giving away great prizes and today is no exception. Today they are even giving away a book that everyone wants but no one can find—Michael Horton’s The Christian Faith. Each of five winners will receive a package of 3 books that includes:
- The Christian Faith by Michael Horton – Retail Price $49.99
- Getting The Reformation Wrong by James Payton, Jr. – Retail Price $23.00
- Slave: The Hidden Truth About Your Identity in Christ by John MacArthur – Retail Price $22.99
Here’s a description of The Christian Faith:
Prolific theologian Michael Horton’s highly anticipated The Christian Faith: A Systematic Theology for Pilgrims on The Way represents his magnum opus and will be viewed as one of-if not the-most important systematic theologies since the final volume of Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics.
Horton views this volume as “doctrine that can be preached, experienced, and lived, as well as understood, clarified, and articulated.” It is written for a growing cast of pilgrims making their way together towards Christ and will be especially welcomed by professors, pastors, students, and armchair theologians. Features of this volume include:
(1) a brief synopsis of biblical passages that inform a particular doctrine; (2) surveys of past and current theologies with contemporary emphasis on exegetical, philosophical, practical, and theological questions; (3) substantial interaction with various Christian movements within the Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox traditions, as well as the hermeneutical issues raised by postmodernity; and (4) practical tools for learning such as charts, sidebars, questions for discussion, and an extensive bibliography, divided into different entry levels and topics.
Additionally, CBD Reformed is offering a 4-day sale (January 28 – 31) on the following two products:
