Biblical Resources for Holiness Preaching, From Text to Sermon cover

The term “holiness” is subject to a wide range of meanings. There are few terms that conjure up so many divergent ideas in the minds of those who hear it. Not only is this the case, but even within the compass of the Bible, “holiness” and its cognate term, “sanctification,” have a variety of meanings and applications.

Een inleiding tot de Wesleyaanse theologie

Een inleiding tot de Wesleyaanse theologie

Het was C.S.Lewis die schreef: "De werkelijkheid is, in mijn ervaring niet alleen complex, maar ook vaak vreemd en wonderlijk. Ze is niet keurig, of voor de hand liggend, je zou het zelf nooit bedacht hebben. Dat is één van de redenen waarom ik achter het Christelijk geloof sta. Het vertoont juist die eigenaardige eigenschappen die 'echtheid' kenmerken."
