Covenant Theology Made Easy

Author: C. Matthew McMahon

Publisher: Puritan Publications

ISBN:

Category: Religion

View: 588

The reason this book exists is to give the Christian church a basic overview of Covenant Theology that 1) follows the Bible, 2) follows The 1647 Westminster Confession, and, 3) is easy to work through. There has not been a book like this that follows the Bible, Westminsterian Theology, or the magnum opus of Herman Witsius (which is a watershed work on Covenant Theology called “The Economy of the Covenants Between God and Man”). This work follows the outline of Witsius and places these theologically important concepts into an easy to understand format. If nothing else has been read on Covenant Theology, this work would be a helpful volume to teach the serious bible student the fundamentals of the Christian faith in the same way that the Early Church, Augustinian Christians, Reformers and Puritans taught Covenant Theology. (The author has also written, “A Simple Overview of Covenant Theology” which could be a helpful resource and precursor to this volume.)

The Age of the Parthians

The Parthians are a fascinating but little-known ancient civilization. In the mid-third century BCE a bold and ambitious leader called Arshak challenged Hellenic rule and led his armies to victory. The dynasty which he founded ruled over what became a mighty empire and restored the glory of Iran following the region's conquest by Alexander the Great. This imperial eastern superpower, which lasted for 400 years and stretched from the Hindu Kush to Mesopotamia, withstand the might of Rome for centuries. The Parthians were nomadic horse-warriors who left few written records, concentrating rather on a rich oral and storytelling tradition. What knowledge we have of this remarkable people derives primarily from their coinage, which mixed Hellenism with Persian influences. In this book, distinguished scholars examine - from a variety of perspectives - the origins of the Parthians, their history, religion and culture, as well as perceptions of their empire through the lens of both imperial Rome and China.

A Complutense International Seminar on "Earth Sciences and Mathematics" was organised and held in Madrid at the Facultad de Ciencias Matemáticas of the Universidad Complutense de Madrid September, 13th-15th, 2006. Scientists from both fields, Mathematics and Earth Sciences, took part in this International Seminar, addressing scientific problems related with our planet from clearly complementary approaches, seeking to gain and learn from this dual approach and proposing a closer collaboration in the near future. This volume is the first one of a Topical Issue on "Earth Sciences and Mathematics" and contains papers addressing different topics as deformation modelling applied to natural hazards, inverse gravimetric problem to determine 3D density structure, advanced differential SAR interferometry, climate change, geomagnetic field, Earthquake statistics, meteorological studies using satellite images, climate energy balance models, study of soils properties, and multifractal data sets.
