What This Book Is About (in Machen's own words).

Overview

What This Book Is About (in Machen's own words). "In my little book, Christianity and Liberalism, 1923, I tried to show that the issue in the Church of the present day is not between two varieties of the same religion, but, at bottom, between two essentially different types of thought and life. There is much interlocking of the branches, but the two tendencies, Modernism and supernaturalism, or (otherwise designated) non-doctrinal religion and historic Christianity, spring from different roots. In particular, I tried to show that Christianity is not a "life," as distinguished from a doctrine, and not a life that has doctrine as its changing symbolic expression, but that-exactly the other way around-it is a life founded on a doctrine." (From "Christianity in Conflict," an autobiographical essay on Machen's life and works).

    A Classic Christian Work.

    Macham exposes the danger of ¿modern¿ liberal thinking and the impact on the Christian church. He lays open liberal false doctrines and teachings within the church and by comparative methods shows the truth of traditional Bible based doctrines. Many of the subjects he addresses seem to be plucked from today¿s headlines. The use of scripture throughout, to illustrate his points is superbly done. That this was written over 70 years ago and still valid proved that ¿Indeed, there is nothing new under the sun.¿ An excellent read with many complex topics examined and explained in a very understandable fashion that most should be able to follow without difficulty.

    Could have been written today

    The timeliness of this book amazes me! It could easily have been written in the last few years, and it's teaching is very applicable to our lives today, as well as being Bible-based and sound Christian doctrine. This book is heartily reccommended.
