THE WORD FOR THIS CENTURY by Merrill C.-Ed. Tenney


Email this review


Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois, has for 100 years been a stronghold of conservative Christianity rooted and grounded in the belief that the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writing. Out of this are derived their fundamental convictions about man's sin, Christ's redemption by His sacrificial blood, the personal, premillenial and imminent return of Christ, the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, either to everlasting blessedness or to everlasting punishment. The eight contributors to this volume speak on behalf of this conservative, evangelical faith, and present their case with urgency and personal conviction. The best known among them is Billy Graham, who writes on ""Christ in the Believer"", and makes the fundamentalist plea for sanctification. Conservative Christians will find in this volume a sound attempt to make their faith relevant to the stresses and strains of life today, granting the premises of the Wheaton College statement of faith; others will not find this relevance so obvious. The book is published on the centennial anniversary of Wheaton College as a testimony to its historic faith. Wheaton alumni are most likely to want it for their own. The contributors have all studied or taught at Wheaton or both.
