Overview

One of the most important Lutheran theologians of the nineteenth century, Milton Valentine’s works were studied and taught in seminaries across the country. The Milton Valentine Theological Studies Collection contains his two-volume Christian Theology, a complete and clear systematic theology from a Lutheran framework. It covers the nature and attributes of God, the incarnation, the Trinity, man’s state of sin, the sacraments, death and the last things, and much more. Natural Theology is Valentine’s in-depth examination of the existence and character of God. And Theoretical Ethics provides the fundamentals for understanding a Christian ethical framework, and what that framework means for believers.

In the Logos Bible Software edition, all Scripture passages in the Milton Valentine Theological Studies Collection are tagged to appear on mouseover. For scholarly work or personal Bible study, this makes these resources more powerful and easier to access than ever before. Perform powerful searches by topic or Scripture reference—finding, for example, every mention of “grace” or “Acts 4:33.”

Christian theology is based on the great fact of Christianity in the world. Its specific materials are found in the whole history of God’s redemptive and light-giving self-manifestation, and the truths involved and established in that divine movement. The scope of its inquiries and formulations, therefore, embraces the essential facts and meaning of the most unique and wonderful phenomenon that the records of time present: the mightiest and most beneficent power that proves itself to be the spiritual salvation of men.

Milton Valentine’s Christian Theology is a full and clear systematic theology from the Lutheran perspective. Volume one includes the following chapters:

Part One: Truths Antecedent to Redemption

  • Division One: The Christian Doctrine of God and His Relations to the World
    • Evidences of the Existence of God

One of the very best of its kind. Dr. Valentine, even at the age of 81, was distinguished by a very unusual degree of vigor and freshness of thought. Throughout, the work is marked by familiarity with the literature of the subject and by originality of treatment.

Natural theology treats of the existence and character of God, as these may be known from reason and nature. It investigates the evidences of His being, and seeks to determine His attributes and relation to the world. This volume contains the substance of lectures on natural theology that Milton Valentine delivered as the President of Pennsylvania College. Chapters include:

  • Part One: Evidences of the Divine Existence
    • Presumptive Evidence
    • The Ontological Evidence
    • The Cosmological Evidence
    • The Teleological Evidence
    • The Moral Evidence
  • Part Two: The Character of God—His Relations to the Universe
    • The Attributes of the Deity
    • The Relation of God to the Universe

Theoretical Ethics

  • Author: Milton Valentine
  • Publisher: Scott, Foresman, & Co.
  • Publication Date: 1897
  • Pages: 232

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This volume is largely the outcome of Milton Valentine’s many years of classroom lecturing on the subject. Its object is to furnish for students and general readers a compendious view of the ethical facts and principles as he believes them to be established by the best accredited knowledge and thought of our times. Starting from the universal phenomenon of moral distinctions in life, it determines the conscience psychologically, as a rationally intuitive power discerning the moral distinction and the reality and authority of moral law. The implications of conscience and moral law necessarily become theistic. The disclosures of revelation confirm the ethical law of the natural reason, completing the moral view and supplying, in the divine forces of Christianity, the proper dynamic for the realization of the ethical life. Theoretical Ethics includes the following chapters:

  • Definition and General Divisions
  • The Fact of Moral Distinctions
  • Faculty of Moral Distinctions—The Existence of Conscience
  • Faculty of Moral Distinctions—The Nature of Conscience
  • The Supremacy of Conscience
  • Moral Agency
  • The Reality of Right and Wrong
  • The Ground of Right
  • The Objects of the Moral Judgment
  • The Ethical View under Christian Teaching
  • The Ethical Task Under Christianity
It is refreshing to find a treatment of the psychology of the moral agent, the being we know as man, without beginning with the oyster or the earthworm, and being left at last in doubt whether the human soul differs in kind or degree from the insignificant embodiment of nervous susceptibility with which we began. Dr. Valentine takes man as he finds him, endowed with rational intellect, sensibility, and free will, and leaves the evolutionary biologist to amuse himself with the problem how he came to be what he is. What he is, is all that essentially concerns the ethical philosopher.
