Living in Light of Two Ages
Chaos and Grace
What is the state of contemporary Christianity, and what are some of the trends that are shaping the way we think about God, heaven, hell, and the Christian life? Why are evangelical Christians prone to think about the gospel in subjective and experiential terms? On this edition of White Horse Inn, Michael Horton will be discussing these questions with Mark Galli, Senior Managing Editor of Christianity Today magazine and author of Chaos & Grace: Discovering the Liberating Work of the Holy Spirit.
God in the Worldwind
Why are so many Christians focused on practical Christian living rather than on understanding who God is and what he has done for us? Why are we more interested in our own subjective experience than we are with objective truth? Joining the discussion is David Wells, author of numerous books including No Place for Truth, The Courage to Be Protestant, and most recently God in the Whirlwind.
A compilation of sermons from B. B. Warfield, published under the title Faith and Life, is now available for free in both EPUB and Kindle.Mobi formats from Monergism.com. You can find it here: Warfield's Faith and Life
According to the publisher (John Hendrix),
B. B. Warfield kept up the Princeton tradition of Sunday afternoon classes with the students of the Seminary in which, in his own words, 'the deepest currents of the Christian faith and life were explored'. This book contains some of the memorable addresses he gave on those occasions.
There was a time when Princeton Seminary was the center of biblical Presbyterian training of the highest caliber in the U.S.. Such notable professors as Archibald Alexander, Samuel Miller, and Charles Hodge would have addresses for students on Sunday afternoons. B. B. Warfield, the lion of Princeton, continued this practice. These 41 chapters come from some of these addresses to Warfield's students.
The contents of this book is tremendous and highly recommended.

Here I am delivering my address on the "Biblical Witness to the Doctrine of the Trinity." One advantage of being bald, I'm easy to see against a dark background in a big room.
We taped several live White Horse Inn programs, this one on the "American Religion" with the usual cast of characters and special guest, Greg Koukl from Stand to Reason.
Our Producer, Shane Rosenthal, who is responsible for much of the success of the White Horse Inn, and the beloved Dr. Rod Rosenbladt, everyone's favorite Lutheran.
Greg Koukl joined us, as did an old friend of the White Horse Inn, Ben Sasse, Republican candidate for the US Senate from Nebraska. Ben and my wife Micki bonded long ago over their common "Cornhusker" roots.
Mike Horton delivered two remarkable lectures, one on the development of the doctrine of the Trinity in the early church, and the other on the person and work of the Holy Spirit. Great stuff!
Adam Christing (founder of Clean Comedians) emceed the event and kept us laughing while keeping things moving.
It was great to see so many old friends, and make many new ones! All of the lectures were recorded and will be available when broadcast through the White Horse Inn!
We’ll be concluding our series with a focus on sin as a condition that often results in various forms of addiction, depression, and despair. How should we counsel those who are young in the faith, who have a newfound desire to walk with God, but who often find that they don’t have the ability to live the life they desire to live? Joining Mike Horton in this discussion is Barbara Duguid, author of Extravagant Grace: God’s Glory Displayed in Our Weakness.
