Overview

This book is created for all serious Christians desiring to dig deeper into the Bible and find the truth, as the Truth will set us free. We need to be consuming the meat and not just the milk of theology. Wisdom is the principle thing, so says the Word of God; it comes from the fear of the Lord, from knowledge (Epistemology), understanding of reality (Ontology) and God's Law (Theonomy), developing our faith by the hearing and reading of God's revelation. Together we dig for God's nuggets of gold.

Dr. Kenneth Gentry, an astute, brilliant Bible Scholar and devoted man of God, helps the reader find those golden nuggets—dissecting, comparing Scripture with Scripture, deciphering the context and time of events—all in a systematic theological manner empowered by the Holy Spirit. His background in the Reformed tradition of the faith (see “About the Author”), his intentional deep study of Holy Writ and his precise and gentle, loving style of communicating, makes this book a must for students who want to follow Jesus lovingly, obediently and wisely.

Here is a tiny sampling of the tasty morsels you will discover in this book from Dr. Gentry's informed pen:

“A growing understanding of the Bible comes only through reading it, systematizing it, studying it, hearing it expounded and applying it.” (Chapter One, page 8)

“The fact that the truth of Scripture is of no 'private interpretation' is a foundational principle of creedal theology. No interpreter of Scripture works alone; we all must build on the past labors of godly predecessors.” (Chapter One, page 10)

“Reformed Christians are a 'people of The Book.' We firmly believe that both the Old and New Testaments are God-breathed and profitable for God's people. Though we may easily discern obvious progress and development in Scripture, the Bible is, nevertheless, one Book.” (Chapter Two, page 16)

“Actually the defense of Christianity is simple: we argue the impossibility of the contrary. Those who assault the Christian system must actually assume the Christian system to do so. In fact, atheism assumes theism.” (Chapter Five, page 90)

“But I believe [this] sufficiently demonstrates the validity of the Westminster Confession, which declares: 'It pleased God the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, for the manifestation of the glory of His eternal power, wisdom and goodness, in the beginning, to create or make of nothing, the world and all things therein whether visible or invisible, in the space of six days; and all very good.'” (Chapter Six, page 99)

“Thus, the theme of Revelation is the execution of God's divorce decree against Israel, her subsequent capital punishment and cremation, followed by His turning to take a new bride, the Church.” (Chapter Eight, page 153)

My personal gratitude to Dr. Ken Gentry for allowing us to republish his work in one volume, dispensing sound exegetical expository of Holy Scripture, helping all of us to learn, grow and enjoy this “Nourishment from the Word” in these “Select Studies in Reformed Doctrine” all to the glory of God. As Dr. Gentry affirms in his initial chapter: “It is fundamentally necessary to hold as one's credo: 'I believe Jesus is Lord.'” —Gerald Christian Nordskog, Publisher

    Endorsements

    Nourishment from the Word: Select Studies in Reformed Doctrine is a welcomed collection of shorter writings by the noted Reformed theologian, Dr. Kenneth L. Gentry. He puts forth concise arguments and well-articulated distinctions of Reformed theological thought on a variety of subjects. Every student of the Holy Scriptures will greatly benefit from reading this book.<BR/>¿ Dr. Kenneth Gary Talbot ¿ President, Whitefield College and Theological Seminary, Lakeland, FL<BR/><BR/>I have found this volume to be of tremendous help to my own theological study. Whenever I forget about the Scriptural details of these issues, I find myself rereading these chapters, because Dr. Gentry is so organized, concise, and to the point about what really matters.<BR/>¿ Brian Godawa ¿ Author, ¿Hollywood Worldviews: Watching Films with Wisdom and Discernment¿; Los Angeles, CA<BR/><BR/>From the dawning of a six-day creation to the world¿s ending, Dr. Gentry¿s collection of writings contains some of his most profound insights and God-honoring thinking. Masterful understanding of Scripture combined with sound logic causes one to deeply ponder his conclusions. Thorough and incisive in his research and argumentation, Dr. Gentry epitomizes the Spirit-inspired man who has dedicated himself to loving the Lord with his entire mind.<BR/>¿ John David McPeak ¿ Lieutenant Colonel, Ret., U.S. Army, M.S., Strategic Intelligence, Joint Military Intelligence College<BR/><BR/>It is impossible to love God with our minds if they are empty. This volume, with clarity, relevance, and wit, equips Christians to develop minds so that they cease being empty-headed children, and instead can in their ¿thinking be mature¿ (1 Cor. 14:20). Even where I disagree with my learned friend, the cogency of his analysis remains compelling.<BR/>¿ Jeffery J. Ventrella, J.D. Senior Vice-President, Strategic Training, Alliance Defense Fund, Mesa, Arizona<BR/><BR/>Dr. Gentry has constructed a wonderful resource on key ecclesiastical and doctrinal issues.
