Listen to an episode of Christ the Center entitled Liberalism, the Different Religion. (Reformed Forum)

Publisher’s Description

J. Gresham Machen was a famed Christian scholar about whom Moody Monthly said this: “Machen’s lifelong plea for holding forth the Word of God and the Christ of the Bible must be the watchword for every pastor and layman who wants to climb the heights of spiritual power and pass on to succeeding generations a Christian faith that will stand.”

This book, written in response to the liberalism that arose in the early 1900s, is a classic defense of orthodox Christianity. To expose the fallacies of liberalism and strengthen the orthodox position, Machen establishes the importance of scriptural doctrine and contrasts the teachings of liberalism and orthodoxy on God, humanity, the Bible, Christ, salvation, and the church. these issues remain in conflict today, testifying to the continuing relevance of this important work.

Includes a Foreword by Carl R. Truman.

Christianity and Liberalism has received the following awards:

World Magazine, One of the top 100 books of the Millennium (1999)

Christianity Today, Top 100 Books of the 20th Century (2000)
