  • An Army of Elder Brothers

    It is not accidental that many of the original Davenant network discovered one another in the Wild West of the internet. As our President, Brad Littlejohn, has outlined elsewhere, it all began with him being wrong on the internet.

Communicating God’s Trinitarian Fullness

An Exposition of Jonathan Edwards’ End of Creation

By Joe Rigney

In this book, Joe Rigney points the way to an enriched understanding of Jonathan Edwards’s classic End for Which God Created the World and the sublime mysteries which it plumbs: that God has an end in creation; that God is eternally happy and self-sufficient in Himself; that God creates everything from nothing; and that God values things according to their value. Rigney’s work invites academics, pastors, and laypeople alike into conversation with one of the brightest lights of the Reformed tradition.

Synopsis of a Purer Theology

Volumes I-II


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. 

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.
