Reformed Theology

There may have previously been a thread on this subject, but I don't find it high enough in the list to see it. Therefore, I will start a thread and let it take its course. The purpose of this topic is to provide a place other than the Study of the Gospel of John, where it has become a side issue with considerable activity. Unfortunately, it is off-track there, so here it is in the open forum. The purpose is to give a place to post items dealing with traditional Reformed Theology. Because CCEL comes out of the Reformed community, there are many books dealing with Reformed Theology and Preaching in the CCEL library. However, in keeping with the ecumenical effort of the founders and supporters of this site, there are also books in the CCEL library that disagree with Reformed Theology. Sooooo, let me remind all participants in this forum, "Keep it loving, or keep it at home."

Andrew Murray, Deeper Life or Reformed?

I strongly agree that our proclamation of biblical truth should be devotional not merely theological. It is for this emphasis I have found the Puritan writers helpful, though I disagree with some of their positions. My issue is more that Murray [Andrew] seems to give some credence to the idea of the "carnal Christian" which is definitely not a Reformed doctrine. I found J. C. Ryle very helpful in addressing this doctrine.
