The pages which follow have been written for faithful ministers of the gospel and for all who are concerned about and pursue the knowledge of holy learning.The preparation of sermons is an everyday task in the church, but it is still a tremendous responsibility and by no means easy. In fact it is doubtful if there is a more difficult challenge in the theological disciplines than that of homiletics. Its subject matter is prophecy, which is a 'higher gift' indeed (cf. 1 Cor. 12:31), whether we think about its dignity or its usefulness.

In The Art of Prophesying, Puritan William Perkins (1558-1602) teaches how to preach the Word with "studied plainness," not relying on technique or soaring flourishes of oratory, but rather by unleashing the majestic power of the unencumbered Word of God. Unlike so much of the milquetoast preaching heard today, Perkins teaches how to utilize the Scripture in all its capacities: for teaching correct doctrine, for reproof and correction, and for training the godly in righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16). This type of preaching changed lives during Perkins' lifetime, and it has the same effect today. Includes a biographical preface by Benjamin Brook. Scripture references (from the ESV) are embedded in the text as hyperlinks--no internet connection required.

Few things are more evident in contemporary churches than the decline in the importance attached to what is said from their pulpits. The deeper tragedy is that in many places the church has become a valley of dry bones. Something is needed to waken the dead and to breathe new life into the people of God. It was in similar times of need that William Perkins (1558-1602) exercised a preaching ministry of such power in Cambridge that it left an impression on both town and church which would last for decades. Perkins provides basic guidance to help all Christians to read and use the Bible intelligently. He has a particularly powerful message for those who lead God's people and especially those who preach. The Art of Prophesying is a slender volume, but it carries sparks capable of igniting a preacher. It should be beside every minister's desk as a book to turn to again and again. - Back cover.

What is Forensic Prophecy? How do I tap into this unfamiliar realm of Forensic Prophesy? How do I catapult my spirit to the greater depths of Forensic Prophecy and navigate the spiritual planes, realms and dimensions with ease.? How do I crack the prophetic codes to excavate microscopic details pertaining to people's names, residential addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, car number plates and other hidden details. How do I engineer the Forensic prophetic technology to decode the beginning and the end of situations, people, places and events with unrivaled accuracy? These are torrents of endless questions which have profusely flooded the minds of many believers across the broad spectrum of Christian faith with regard to the art of prophesying forensically, accurately and articulately, yet many lament at the frustration of failing to secure the valid answers they need. Although much has been deliberated in the prophetic arena evidenced by the voluminous books written on the prophetic and the mushrooming of Prophetic Schools across the Body of Christ, there are still lingering questions across the Body of Christ triggered by the perennial hunger and unquenchable thirst for the prophetic especially matters of prophesying accurately, precisely and articulately. While anybody can prophesy, not everybody can prophesy accurately, precisely and forensically because it takes an understanding of a Biblical prophetic forensic technology as encapsulated in this book in order for one to be catapulted into that realm. For this reason, this book is the first of its kind as it exclusively and exhaustively touches on the subject of Forensic Prophecy.As a new paradigm in the prophetic realm, Forensic prophecy is a topic that has recently received great interest, culminating in some books being written on the prophetic yet none of them outlines the breadth and scope of Forensic prophecy especially the art of prophetic articulation and navigation.This book is an exceptional read as it seeks to examine the scope, depth and vast spectrum of the Forensic prophetic realm, in terms of how it operates, how to tap into that realm and prophesy with your eyes open. The sub-title of this book, "The Art Of Prophetic Articulation And Navigation" covers both PROPHETIC ARTICULATION which is the ability to speak prophetically and forensically as in the case of a Nabi and PROPHETIC NAVIGATION which is the ability to see in the spirit realm as in the case of a Seer. As you read this book, you will experience many facets to the prophetic streams which will allow you to experience the unfolding creative power of the prophetic ministry with unrivaled accuracy. It will catapult you to a higher prophetic dimension of forensic prophecy in which it's naturally supernatural to prophesy and receiving a prophetic word from God is a common experience. Moreover, you will receive such a heavy impartation of the prophetic anointing from the written pages of this book that will ignite a prophetic explosion in your spirit, causing you to prophesy with your eyes open! This book empowers all believers and prophetic ministers with revelatory knowledge and wisdom on how to operate in the Forensic prophetic realm of God and decipher the anatomy of the forensic prophetic grace. If you have never prophesied with unrivaled accuracy before, to the level of revealing and excavating hidden mysteries and microscopic details pertaining to people's names, phone numbers, birth dates, residential addresses, car number plates and other demographic details, the reading of this book will unlock your walk in the supernatural to unprecedented dimensions. As you read this book, you will be catapulted to higher and deeper levels of Forensic prophecy where you will be able to navigate and explore regions of mystery in the heavenlies with ease.

This fourth volume contains two treatises of biblical exposition. The first treatise is A Godly and Learned Exposition upon the Whole Epistle of Jude . Finding the purpose of Jude’s letter in verse 3, Perkins calls for all Christians to persevere in professing the gospel by taking heed of false teachers and deceivers, who seek to infiltrate the church. While many of his points of application reflect a context peculiar to the Elizabethan era, his insights into what it means to “contend for the faith” still prove applicable today. The second treatise is A Godly and Learned Exposition or Commentary upon the Three First Chapters of Revelation , giving careful consideration of the seven letters to the seven churches of Asia. Perkins highlights the person of Christ and His significance to the church, focuses on what Christ approves and rebukes about the condition of the church, and emphasizes Christ’s bounty and humanity’s duty. Troubled by the prevalence of those who accept empty profession as conversion and dead formality as godliness, Perkins urges his audience to move beyond mere intellectual assent to heartfelt dedication to Christ.

Revising dominant accounts of Puritanism and challenging the literary history of sentimentalism, Sympathetic Puritans argues that a Calvinist theology of sympathy shaped the politics, religion, rhetoric, and literature of early New England. Scholars have often understood and presented sentimentalism as a direct challenge to stern and stoic Puritan forebears; the standard history traces a cult of sensibility back to moral sense philosophy and the Scottish Enlightenment, not Puritan New England. Abram C. Van Engen has unearthed pervasive evidence of sympathy in a large archive of Puritan sermons, treatises, tracts, poems, journals, histories, and captivity narratives. He demonstrates how two types of sympathy -- the active command to fellow-feel (a duty), as well as the passive sign that could indicate salvation (a discovery) -- permeated Puritan society and came to define the very boundaries of English culture, affecting conceptions of community, relations with Native Americans, and the development of American literature. Van Engen re-examines the Antinomian Controversy, conversion narratives, transatlantic relations, Puritan missions, Mary Rowlandson's captivity narrative -- and Puritan culture more generally -- through the lens of sympathy. Demonstrating and explicating a Calvinist theology of sympathy in seventeenth-century New England, the book reveals the religious history of a concept that has previously been associated with more secular roots.

Poetic Theology

What are the poetics of everyday life ? What can they teach us about God? Art, music, dance, and writing can certainly be poetic, but so can such diverse pastimes as fishing, skiing, or attending sports events. Any and all activities that satisfy our fundamental need for play, for celebration, and for ritual, says William Dyrness, are inherently poetic and in Poetic Theology he demonstrates that all such activities are places where God is active in the world. All of humanity s creative efforts, Dyrness points out, testify to our intrinsic longing for joy and delight and our deep desire to connect with others, with the created order, and especially with the Creator. This desire is rooted in the presence and calling of God in and through the good creation. With extensive reflection on aesthetics in spirituality, worship, and community development, Dyrness s Poetic Theology will be useful for all who seek fresh and powerful new ways to communicate the gospel in contemporary society. William Dyrness s bold invitation to a poetic theology shaped by Scripture, tradition, and imagination one luring us toward a fuller participation in beauty than argument or concept alone allow reminds us that truth itself is beautiful to behold and poetic to the core. . . . If poetry is in its deepest reflex an intensification of life, then Dyrness s call for a poetic theology is one we ignore at our peril, reminding us that faithful living is not only about proper thinking but also and, perhaps, more properly about the texture of our living and the quality of our loving. Mark S. Burrows Andover Newton Theological School Makes a strong case for aesthetics as one of the avenues used by God to draw human beings near to him and his glory. . . .

Barbeau reconstructs the system of religion that Coleridge develops in Confessions of an Inquiring Spirit (1840). Coleridge's late system links four sources of divinity the Bible, the traditions of the church, the interior work of the Spirit, and the inspired preacher to Christ, the Word. In thousands of marginalia and private notebook entries, Coleridge challenges traditional views of the formation and inspiration of the Bible, clarifies the role of the church in biblical interpretation, and elucidates the relationship between the objective and subjective sources of revelation. In late writings that develop a robust system of religion, Coleridge conveys his commitment to biblical wisdom.
