Sanctification New Studies in DogmaticsZondervan Academic - Berkouwer's studies in dogmatics, and readable treatments of major theological topics, expressing the biblical, concise, creedal, this series will provide thoughtful, and confessional shape of Christian doctrine for a contemporary evangelical audience. But sanctification is one of the gifts of the gospel of Jesus Christ, so we must think about the way in which he makes his redeemed holy as a grace.
Sanctification, the nature of creation, patiently defines holiness in theological terms by tending to its connections with core Christian doctrines such as the character of God, the latest volume in the New Studies in Dogmatics series, and the covenantal shape of life with God. Finally, it attends to the ways in which the gift of sanctification relates to various human instruments and means, so that we can appreciate its connection to human nature, creaturely responsibility, and the pedagogy of exemplars and of law.
Sanctification New Studies in Dogmatics - The holy has been defined existentially and sociologically, and churches too often allow their expectations regarding holiness to be prompted by existential aspirations or the social mores of the Christian community. Perhaps it is not surprising that many view holiness as accidental or expendable, even as a legalistic and conformist posture opposed to the freedom of the gospel.
The editors and contributors share a common conviction that the way forward in constructive systematic theology lies in building upon the foundations laid in the church's historic understanding of the Word of God as professed in its creeds, councils, and confessions, and by its most trusted teachers.

Grounded in Heaven: Recentering Christian Hope and Life on GodEerdmans - Reaching back to classical ethics as well as its reformation by Calvin and other Reformed theologians, Grounded in Heaven offers a distinctly Protestant account of the ascetical calling to be heavenly-minded and to deny one’s self. In grounded in heaven allen retrieves the traditional concept of the beatific vision and seeks to bring Christ back into the heart of our theology and our lives on earth.
Responding to the earthly-mindedness of much recent theology, Allen places his focus on God and the heavenly future while also appreciating ways in which the Reformed tradition provides a unique angle on broadly catholic concerns. Eschatology and ethics are joined at the hip, says Michael Allen, and both need theocentric reorientation.

All That Is in God: Evangelical Theology and the Challenge of Classical Christian TheismReformation Heritage Books - James dolezal's all that is in God provides an exposition of the historic Christian position while engaging with these contemporary deviations. Arguing carefully and cogently that all that is in God is God Himself, the work is sure to stimulate debate on the issue in years to come. Baker Academic.
