Christian Freedom provides an accessible entry into Samuel Bolton’s original work, The True Bounds of Christian Freedom, first published in 1645. This book is not simply an academic discussion of the issues; Samuel Bolton constantly reminds his readers of the gospel, and the great transformation that has happened to a person who has trusted in Jesus Christ. Bolton shows us clearly that real Christian obedience comes from a changed heart, and is motivated by love for God. He deals with the practical question of what happens when Christians fall into sin, and encourages us to rely on what Christ has done for us, rather than on our performance.
What does it mean to be a Christian? Is Christianity a matter of the intellect alone? What about desires, feelings, and experiences? What is conversion? These questions are not new. Jonathan Edwards, the great American theologian tackled these, and many others, against the background of the First Great Awakening.
These questions, and the answers Edwards gives to them, are profoundly relevant to us today. Find ‘a guide for the perplexed’ – a voice of clear Biblical and spiritual sanity to lead us safely through the maze of contemporary confusion in this crucial area.
Part one looks at the Biblical teaching concerning the Holy Spirit, as Smeaton leads us on a journey of exploration through Scripture teaching on the Holy Spirit. Part two sees John Owen deal with the relationship between the believer and the Holy Spirit in our daily experience.
Living with the Living God provides a helpful aid for the contemporary reader in understanding the work of the Holy Spirit.
