I very much wanted to like this book. I am not sure why I didn't. It is very thorough in its thinking, and very practical. It has had several indirect or unconscious effects on me that I have afterwards noticed; and some of these effects are good. Fo ...more

"What I appreciated about this book was how Sarah Edwards adapted herself to her husband which is our biblical calling as women. His greatness had alot of oddities which comes with the territory. I loved imagining Jonathan riding his horse while re..." Read more of this review »

Good. Mostly an introduction to worldview thinking, with some fascinating material about India's history.

J. Gresham Machen
“A new and more powerful proclamation of the law is perhaps the most pressing need of the hour... A low view of law always brings legalism into religion; a high view of law makes man a seeker after grace. Pray that the high view may prevail.”
J. Gresham Machen, What is Faith?

J. Gresham Machen
“The true reason why faith is given such an exclusive place by the New Testament, so far as the attainment of salvation is concerned, over against love and over against everything else in man...is that faith means receiving something, not doing something or even being something. To say, therefore, that our faith saves us means that we do not save ourselves even in slightest measure, but that God saves us.”
J. Gresham Machen, What is Faith?

J. Gresham Machen
“I can see little consistency in a type of Christian activity which preaches the Gospel on the street corners and at the ends of the Earth, but neglects the children of the covenant by abandoning them to a cold and unbelieving secularism.”
J. Gresham Machen, Education Christianity & the State

J. Gresham Machen
“The strange thing about Christianity was that it adopted an entirely different method. It transformed the lives of men not by appealing to the human will, but by telling a story; not by exhortation, but by the narration of an event.”
J. Gresham Machen, Christianity and Liberalism

J. Gresham Machen
“Paganism is that view of life which finds the highest goal of human existence in the healthy and harmonious and joyous development of existing human faculties. Very different is the Christian ideal. Paganism is optimistic with regard to unaided human nature, whereas Christianity is the religion of the broken heart.”
J. Gresham Machen, Christianity and Liberalism
