Christianity and Liberalism

J Gresham Machen

$24.99

Paperback
This classic defense of orthodox Christianity, written to counter the liberalism that arose in the early 1900s, establishes the importance of scriptural doctrine and contrasts the teachings of liberalism and orthodoxy on God and man, the Bible, Christ, salvation, and the church. J. Gresham Machen's Christianity and Liberalism has remained relevant through the years ever since its original publication in 1923. It was named one of the top 100 books of the millennium by World magazine and one of the top 100 books of the twentieth century by Christianity Today.

^^"An admirable book. For its acumen, for its saliency, and for its wit, this cool and stringent defense of orthodox Protestantism is, I think, the best popular argument produced (in the controversy between Christianity and liberalism)."
^ Walter Lippmann in A Preface to Morals

^^^"It is my conviction that Machen's book can still speak today. . . . Even for those who do not agree with his central thesis, Christianity and Liberalism can still be understood as representing one of the literary artifacts of a generation that had come to see liberalism as leading inexorably to a sentimentalized religion that had nothing to do with the God of the Bible or, indeed, with real life."
^ Carl R. Trueman (from the foreword)^Westminster Theological Seminary

Classic Work
3 stars By Wally Bocos, Aug 23 2017
This is one of Machen's classic works. This book was written in the early 1920's as Machen sought to confront the rising tide of liberalism within the church. Machen saw Liberalism more sinister than a mere branching of Orthodoxy, Machen saw Liberalism as a whole new religion.

Throughout the book Machen sees to defend the orthodox view by contrasting it with the liberal view of Christianity. Broken into six main headings; Doctrine, God and man, The bible, Christ, Salvation and the church.

I found the book informative especially with the current age of liberal Christianity dominating the evangelical landscape. Machen words are appropriate for us today as I am sure they were for his own time. A valuable resource for the pastor of today, and any Christian concerned for where the church is heading.

Christian liberalism is exposed for what it really is: non-Christian
5 stars By Joel Radford, Sep 22 2012
If anyone believes that liberal Christianity is Christian, then this is the book to set you straight. Machen shows that on core doctrines the liberal is feeding from a different root than that of historic Christianity. To allow liberals to be members and pastors of the churches is inviting wolves to support and teach the sheep. If we wish to remain faithful to our Lord, we cannot allow paganism to infect the church and would do well to heed Machen's teaching and counsel.
