Law or Spirit?

2001
This commentary emphasising the ethical aspects of Galatians seeks to prove that Galatians is not only fighting legalists but also a second party of Paul’s opponents, who were totally opposed to the Old Testament and the Law, and lived immorally in the name of Christian freedom, a view especially endorsed by Wilhelm Lütgert’s commentary of 1919. Paul is fighting against the abrogation of the Old Testament Law as well as against using this Law as way of salvation instead of God’s grace.

Knowing and Enjoying the Gospel

2005
Quite often Christians are asking what’s the matter in our churches. They sense there is something wrong with the proclamation of the gospel but they cannot fathom what. The point is that the humanistic zeitgeist, i.e. the contemporary line of thinking has crept in unawares. What’s more, it has adapted itself to the gospel of Christ in such a way that Bible passages, whilst still being in use, are interpreted one-sidedly. As a result, the gospel is distorted or even turned upside-down at times. Because this has a devastating effect on the health of our faith, this book wants to urgently contribute towards discovering the foundational truths the gospel itself is based on. Of course, pastor Wegert employs the Bible as a guideline in going back to school, so-to-speak. He also delves into the principles of the Reformers and preachers of great revivals who took Scripture for what it was. Such people include, for instance, Martin Luther and John Calvin, J. Edwards, C. H. Spurgeon und Martin Lloyd-Jones.

John Warwick Montgomery’s Legal Apologetic

2004
Dr Montgomery is one of our leading Christian apologists. His writings have influenced several generations of apologists from around the globe. His debates are legendary. This book purports to break new ground apologetically as it assesses Dr Montgomery’s work. It focuses on his legal/historical apologetic and in the process reframes it for both for the ‘tough minded’ and the ‘tender hearted’. It shows not only the rationality of Montgomery’s work but also that his writings pave the way for an apologetic to New Age followers and to those who place experience before reason. A special feature of this analysis concerns Montgomery’s apologetic insights on the occult and paganism. This book also breaks new ground as the legal apologetic model has not been previously assessed; it illustrates that a juridical apologetic style has a rich history dating back to the Gospels themselves. The present work should thus be of particular interest to apologists, theologians, philosophers of religion, pastors, and all who are concerned to share the legal/ historical fact of the Resurrection of Jesus – together with its relevance – in a secular age.

The Epistle of James - Volume 2

2006
All too often James was either neglected, or a great uncertainty prevailed how to understand him and how to incorporate his message into the overall framework of the Christian and Protestant faith. Often people perceived James to be more or less Roman Catholic! Henry Krabbendam now demonstrates: That James is a teacher of grace as all other apostles; That James only can be understood against the backdrop of the complementarity of truth present in all Christian teaching; That James’ pastoral and practical heart nevertheless makes him a superb systematic theologian; That James’ message of holiness and the message of the Reformation are not alien to each other, but belong together as two sides of one coin.

I Shall not Want

2004
In this book, Pastor Wegert, who is known for his refreshing yet thorough way of communicating Biblical truths, opens up the richness of this wellknown Psalm. It is in Jesus Christ that the believer can truly find rest. Why so? Because He is the good Shepherd that provides spiritual food for all those that belong to Him. No wonder, this rather short Psalm can be seen as a summary of the entire gospel - from the invitation to believe in Him, to the ups and downs any believer will experience, up to the moment the believer will be made perfect in eternity. Wolfgang Wegert delivered a series of sermons on Psalm 23. They have now been compiled and made available as a book that a broad reading audience can enjoy. It also makes an ideal gift to pass on to others.

Hope for Europe

2002
Official thesis and study of hope in the Old and New Testament for Hope for Europe of the European Evangelical Alliance and Lausanne Europe. How can we demonstrate the Biblical basis of our hope and affirm it towards engaged Christians as well as to non-believers? How can we assert our hopes to Members of Parliament, to businessmen or to mothers? How can we raise the flag of hope in a world drowning in hopelessness and pessimism? We are thus very happy to present the propositions of Thomas Schirrmacher. These statements combine our desire to open the treasury of Biblical hope for many, theologians and laymen, and to encourage them to think about the subject.

Foundations of Faith

2000
This booklet is a collection of sermon extracts and articles. Its purpose is to help us reflect on the very foundation of our Christian faith. In short, it takes us all the way ‘back to the roots‘. We will be looking at such crucial questions, as: what really is faith and conversion? What is the significance of getting baptized? What is characteristic of a Christian congregation? What does the Bible say about prayer and the Lord‘s supper? I‘m afraid we cannot deal with all the questions of faith in this booklet; but then, this is not so much a piece of theological literature for scholars. It is rather a brief compilation of the most important nuggets of information and a hands-on guide on issues like how to get your faith started, developed and fed by the Spirit for a lifetime.

Be keen to get going

2001
William Carey’s famous ‘Enquiry’ (1792) changed mission history, and he is considered the "Father of Protestant missions“. Even though his life and work has been the topic of many books and articles, a study on his theology is the missing link of mission research. Dr. Schirrmacher, mission activist, historian and professor of missions, studies Carey’s theological motivation. He recovers the real change in theology, that made world mission possible.
