Synopsis of a Purer Theology

Volumes I-II

Ed WILLIAM DEN BOER & RIEMER A. FABER, Trans. RIEMER A. FABER | $79.99 $59.99 (Pre-order discount) | 2 VOLUMES – 400 PG EACH | HardBACK

The Synopsis offers both a snapshot of the state of confessional theology in the 17th-century Dutch Reformed tradition, and also an enduring example of how the project of systematizing doctrine can serve the church. The Leiden professors modeled thoroughness and clarity of thought in the face of confusion, and a vision of irenic Christian unity over brittle doctrinal uniformity. 

The Shining Human Creature

Christian Ethics, Vol. 1


What does it mean for man to live as one restored in Christ? Into this conversation comes Thomas Traherne—clergyman, poet, and mystic—to cast a vision of the “shining human creature,” in a new modernization by Colin Redemer.

Begotten Or Made? A New Edition for the 21st Century

BY OLIVER O’DONOVAN | $23.95 | 160 Pages

How is it that we have so lost sight of the meaning of the human person that our very biological sex is seen as just another medical problem to be solved by technique? In a society that has rejected all moral norms, that refuses to honor God as Creator, what hope do we have of stemming the tide of scientific intervention into even the most sacred dimensions of our humanity? In this prescient volume, originally published in 1984, the eminent theological ethicist Oliver O’Donovan offers a penetrating analysis of our confusion over human nature and the proper boundaries of medical science.
