The BibleLessons for the Church

From yesterday, today, and tomorrow

by Mark Dever

Drawing on his expertise in the fields of ecclesiastical and historical theology, Mark Dever looks at what the church needs to learn from the past (especially the puritans), the present, and the future. A set of four talks originally given at the excellent Theology For All Annual Day Conference in London, England (September 2007).
