General revelation by G. C Berkouwer( Book )

22 editions published between 1951 and 1983 in 4 languages and held by 517 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The subject of God's general revelation has in our day aroused agitated and even violent discussions, and the time when Reformed theology could take the distinction between general and special revelation for granted appears to be gone forever, according to the author. Does the distinction between general and special revelation do justice to the unique and "once-for-all" character of the redemptive revelation in Jesus Christ? Does the confession of a general or universal revelation owe its existence to a flight, perhaps unconscious, from the sufficiency and absoluteness of the revelation in Christ? And is Christ to be regarded as but a special illustration of the general revelation of God in the world, a revelation richer and broader than simply that revelation in Christ? These decisive questions, involving as they do the claims of natural theology and the radical character of the history of religion since the nineteenth century, are given here a trenchant and detailed analysis

Divine election by G. C Berkouwer( Book )

14 editions published between 1955 and 1979 in 3 languages and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A discussion of election in a perspective and spirit that will be quite novel to most theologians and ministers. The author contends that election can be understood only within faith, and within a spirit of doxology, for election takes place 'in Christ'. Hence election must be understood and employed in terms of the Gospel. He then repudiates theological usage which employs election and reprobation as a principle of interpretation for theology with the usual consequence of deducing from this truth a nice logical system of theology. Another powerful feature of this book is its criticism of the conception of the sovereignty of God and then makes it into a mere principle of naked 'abosolute power', and ethically neutral principle of brute force.

Faith and sanctification by G. C Berkouwer( Book )

18 editions published between 1949 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Faith and Sanctification is the first volume to appear in the First American Edition of a series of monographs covering the whole field of Christian theology. In this volume, Professor Berkouwer sets forth the gravity of the Christian's responsibility: "Ye are the light of the world." Also is involved the paradox of the modesty of sanctification and its inherent radiance -- "For there is nothing hid, save that it should be manifested; neither was anything made secret, but that it should come to light"--That gives it its peculiar character. - Jacket flap

The church by G. C Berkouwer( Book )

14 editions published between 1970 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"I believe one holy catholic and apostolic church." In these words of the Nicene Creed, Christians of every era and every land have articulated a dimension of their faith that seems to invite cynicism. Through the years unity and universality, holiness and faithfulness to the apostolic tradition have not been overwhelmingly obvious as attributes of the Church. G.C. Berkouwer is not content to explain these shortcomings as though what has traditionally been confessed about the Church refers to an ideal, not the actual Church in its historical manifestations. On the contrary, Berkouwer argues, to the extent that the Church fails to display unity, catholicity, apostolicity, and holiness, it is failing to be itself. --From publisher's description
