The Biblical Companion to Finney's Systematic Theology
The Letter to the Romans stands as Paul's most significant message on how to begin and maintain a loving relationship with God and others. The Holy Spirit often leads those seeking to understand the essentials of saving and sanctifying faith to read Romans. Beginning with Charles G. Finney's Principles of Righteousness, Volume I and continuing with his Principles of Peace, Volume II, this three volume set of Finney's Lessons on Romans presents an authoritative collection of Finney's teachings on how to live for Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit.
Finney's Lessons on Romans also provide a solid Biblical foundation for those who want to understand better Finney's Systematic Theology. In this new Finney's Principles Series set, the addition of Study Questions for individuals and groups by the editor and the Commentary on Romans by Henry Cowles, a fellow professor with Finney at Oberlin College, will help you apply and remember the principles contained in Finney's lectures and sermons on Romans.
Charles G. Finney became the greatest American preacher and theologian of the Nineteenth-Century. He traveled widely as an evangelist and revivalist in America and abroad, served settled pastorates, taught as a professor of theology, promoted the abolition of slavery and equal rights, and helped found and served as President of Oberlin College in Ohio. Just as one cannot understand the Great Awakening without studying Jonathan Edwards, one cannot understand the great revivals and the theological and social reform movements in Nineteenth-Century America without studying Charles G. Finney. Because Finney's teachings remained true to the Bible and common sense, his message transformed thousands.
Thirty years have passed since Bethany House Publishers released Charles G. Finney's Principles of Prayer in 1980, the first book in the Finney Principles Series. Principles of Prayer has remained continuously in print for all these years, but the other books in the series are now out of print. L.G. Parkhurst, Jr., who began the Finney Principles Series, continues the series, but adds helpful study questions and commentary, in Finney's Lessons on Romans, published by Agion Press.
