The much anticipated second volume from the Westminster School of Theology is full of the probing theology that made the first volume so popular. In these collected notes from Kendall's lectures to his students at Westminster you will find analysis of biblical inerrancy, the attributes of God, the Holy Spirit, predestination vs. free will, gender roles, baptism, experiencing God, faith and works, prayer, spiritual warfare, temptation, and Heaven. The outline format of the Understanding Theology Volume 2 offers many volumes worth of material in its 548 pages.
“Augustine is apparently the first to describe a sacrament as ‘an outward expression of an inward work’.” (Page 296)
“Free will: man is autonomous (self-governing) and has the power to determine his heart, life and destiny.” (Page 275)
“Heaven is a real place, the eternal home of every believer from every age and place. There we will meet the Lord face to face. Satan is barred from heaven as are all who have rejected the gospel. There will be no sin there and no sorrow, not even the sorrow of mourning for those who are unsaved. There will be perfection in everything: beauty, peace, worship etc. Nothing will enter heaven to spoil it or mar our eternal enjoyment. We cannot begin to conceive of heaven’s glory.” (Page 512)
“Theology which is not born out of and bathed in prayer is worthless.” (Page 447)
“This way of looking at predestination is letting logic rather than scripture determine our belief.” (Page 265)
A wonderful opportunity to come to grips with the essential truths of the Bible. Suitable for church leaders, students, and all those who believe that Scripture and the Holy Spirit can change lives today.
