His Works present a feast of rich teaching and exposition, characterized throughout by sound theology, profound thought, and an imaginative style. The five volumes now reprinted from the classic nineteenth-century Nichol edition contain a total of more than 2, pages and 64 distinct discourses or sermons. If he were not a fool he would not imagine a thing so contrary to…the rational dictates of his own soul, and contrary to the testimony of every creature and link in the chain of creation. In this Charnock sets forth the doctrine of providence with great clarity, and then applies it to instruct, comfort, and exhort the people of God. Each discourse first expounds, then applies, the text of Scripture on which it is based. It is perhaps surprising that present-day Christians seem so often to be confused about what it means to be born again.

How would you describe God? John MacArthur. Go ahead and tell us about this book. Sproul would always say that everything starts with the doctrine of God. I started to read Benjamin Warfield a little bit, and this was taking me into places I had never been. It turned out later that we were on opposite sides of the Lordship issue. I even addressed his views in The Gospel According to Jesus.
So we were on the opposite side of that issue, and that never resolved in any way to the place where I thought he began to understand the truth. It was just completely disconnected from that book, that he went that direction which does happen to people. They adopt a theology that accommodates their experience. You mentioned R.
He used to say this a lot— many of us have the same doctrine of God. Even Roman Catholics have a lot in common with our doctrine of God. The problem, R. It was such an inexhaustible truth. It just goes on and on, but it just totally altered how I viewed God, with a kind of vastness that put me in awe of Him.
If anything most dramatically altered my sense of worship, it was that book. You bump into this again and again in the Psalms. Just amazed at the depths of who God is. That was life transforming for me. Even sometimes in Evangelical circles, people will pit the God of the Old Testament— this is the old liberal error— against the God of the New Testament. Books like this are helpful for us, not just in thinking about these attributes, but in thinking of God as what is the doctrine of the simplicity of God.
I found that the more I understood the vastness, and I guess in one sense the complexity of God, the less there was any possibility that I could see a contradiction in anything. I remember talking to R. But we come into Scripture, we have the glory of God. He dwells in unapproachable light. Thinking seriously about God means you think seriously about everything. Well thank you, I appreciate this.
Thank you, Dr.
