When I saw this deal, I had to pass it along. You can get Bahnsen"(tm)s Theonomy in Christian Ethics 3ed. For $20 "" reg. $35. Not only are you getting 600+ pages to reference and read, look at the other books, articles, and mp3"(tm)s you get. As much as this subject is discussed on this board this would have to be a must have for the mp3 alone. Actually it was these lectures that made me ask what all of the fuss was about. If enough people buy the book, maybe we could even discuss it in the library forum"¦Discuss a chapter a time or even the mp3"(tm)s.

This new, larger format, clothcovered, smyth-sewn, third edition of Theonomy in Christian Ethics includes a multimedia CD.

I have the book in that format. The Banhsen/Gentry response to Dispensational criticisms is is more like a lesson on how not to write a criticism of theonomy, to say the least. The best "examination" of theonomy would be by Ligon Duncan (not in the book); I think he is criticizing the extremes of reconstructionism, not necessarily theonomy. The MP3 lectures are great. If you buy the book just for the lectures then you are still saving money as opposed to going to Covenant Media and buying the different sets!

I did not realize that they were having a book reduction sale at the moment. I took Paul Manata's general advice and bought the Feschrift to Dr. Bahnsen. Even if you are not sympthetic with Covenant Media's theonomy/Doug Wilson affiliation, etc., they still have some items that are worth looking into.

CMF sent me a copy of Bahnsen's [u:869ca16f4f]Theonomy in Christian Ethics [/u:869ca16f4f]on accident earlier this summer (I had originally ordered his [u:869ca16f4f]Analysis of Van Til[/u:869ca16f4f]). I was going to send it back but I just decided to buy it since I'm interested in it anyways -and I got a discount ($25)!

I haven't even cracked open the CD yet. Is it compatable with the Mac platform?

Quote:

"maybe we could even discuss it in the library forum"¦Discuss a chapter a time or even the mp3"(tm)s."

I'm interested in this idea.

Hopefully you reordered the Analysis of Van Til... :bs2:

MP3 shouldn't have any problem playing on a mac, nor will the .pdf files. Win-win situation.

As far as discussing things. I'm game. I'm not sure which would be the best route. For brevity's sake I'm thinking the mp3's. They are self contained lectures and you could always pull from the 3 books to support and flesh out the arguments on the tapes/mp3's. I've listened to the series a few times. It seems that everytime I listen to them I catch something I didn't notice before, or at least understand the train of thought a bit better.

I just finished listening to the 20 cd series on political ethics by Bahnsen that CMF just released. Very informative. Definitely worthwhile if you're wanting to think through Christian Politics.

Oh yeah, I've got the goods.
Now I just need to read it! I caught a nice reading rhythm in the theonomy book so I'll probably finish that first.
