Item description for Fundamentals by R. a. Torrey, Charles L. Feinberg & Warren W. Wiersbe...

One of the greatest defenses of the faith that covers all the central teachings of Christianity, including the deity of Christ, the virgin birth, the second coming, and salvation by grace.

Publishers Description
Originally published as a multi-volume series, "The Fundamentals" is one of the finest and most widely distributed statements of Christian doctrine ever produced. Written to combat the inroads of liberalism into the Christian church, "The Fundamentals" literally stirred the world in defense of the historic Christian faith. These articles blend a "common-sense" doctrinal approach with personal application built upon the foundation of the inspired and inerrant Scriptures.
"The Fundamentals" defends the deity of Christ, the inspiration of the Scriptures, the bodily resurrection of Christ, and many other foundational truths. These statements also apply biblical Christianity to the wider problems of life and culture by emphasizing the essentials and de-emphasizing the nonessentials. This balance in both doctrine and application has established "The Fundamentals" as a classic of Christian literature.

The Fundamentals: A Testimony to the Truth  Sep 29, 2005
The subtitle of this overwhelming apologetic says it all! The scholars that contributed to these writings set a standard in the study of apologetics. If you need answers on how to defend the Bible's infallibility, authority, inerrancy and authenticity against the views of "higher critics," science, and evolution, this book is for you. In this day and time, mainstream Protestants truly need to 'get back to the basics' of knowing how to defend the Word of God. "The Fundamentals," will do just that.
Historic and Relevant Presentation of Christian Faith  Jul 15, 2005
This landmark study was originally financed by Christian laymen Lyman and Milton Stewart, first published between 1910 and 1915 in twelve paperback volumes and distributed free to many thousands of ministers, missionaries and leading laypersons. It was published in a four volume edition in 1917. Demand has since kept the four volume edition in print. My own four copies were reprinted in 1988.
By the beginning of the twentieth century religious modernism and apostasy in Biblical criticism, theology and practice had made major inroads in American seminaries, colleges and mainline churches. This monumental work raised a defense and standard for Biblical Christianity. The many articles range over a variety of topics, covering Biblical criticism, theology and the practical application of the Christian faith.
The studies were contributed by a variety of writers representing different traditions of Protestantism in the defense and promotion of a vital Christian faith based upon the inspiration of the Bible and the great central doctrines of the Bible and the person and work of Jesus Christ.
Not only is this a great historic work that contributed to the burgeoning modern Christian Fundamentalist and Evangelical movements; it is also a work that has retained much relevance and may still be read profitably for knowledge, doctrine and practical Christian living.

Coined The word Fundamentalist  Mar 20, 2005
Do you believe the Bible to be the word of God? Do you believe the events described in the word of God? Do you believe the events described in the books of the bible really happened as described? If one answers no to either question, one is at a disadvantage to accept the message of salvation. By the end of the nineteenth century many a seminary professor taught that the bible was not historically accurate and questioned the miracles described in the bible as really happening. Many, who came to seminary to learn how to defend God's word, were taught to question the authority of the Bible. The books of the Bible were not God's authentic word. The Fundamentals was first published in 1917 in response to this situation. The word fundamentalist was coined by those who participated in the writing this work. Later the term was taken with pride by those who defended the authenticity of the Bible.

Higher criticism of the Bible is the determination of the historic origins of each particular book of the Bible. The scholar through research the text, outside historic information, and theory makes a determination who, when, and where the book "actually " was written. Some question the facts presented in the text because of "facts" and theories not contained in the text. Some have used the study of Higher criticism as a means to question the historic accuracy of the Bible; they undermine the authority of the Bible as God's written word by determining alternative Human authors to those claimed in the text, and being written in different times. These scholars describe the Bible as human myth. Many a Higher critic deny God's use of miracles to intervene in the world. They do not question God's use of ordinary means to intervene in peoples lives. These scholars taught future ministers of God's word.

The Fundamentals were written to counter such criticism of the Bible. The book contains a counter school of Higher Criticism. These writers believe the Bible was written when the text of the Bible says it was written and written by the authors as stated in the text. These proclaimers of God's word describe the Bible as accurate, historic, and the foremost means God choose to communicate to His flock. This text was written to counter the arguments of those who deny the Bible as the word of God. Each article takes on another argument against the Bible.
Fascinating and highly informative  May 7, 2004
By the turn of the 20th century, new "modern" and liberal teachings (such as Evolution, Higher Criticism, rejection of the reliability of the Bible and rejection of the deity of Christ) had begun to have a serious influence on American churches, provoking debate across the country. In 1909, two Christian laymen, oil magnates Lyman and Milton Stewart, set aside money for the publication of a group of articles, written by well-known orthodox Protestant scholars, spelling out the fundamentals (or essential doctrines for salvation) of the Christian faith. From 1910 to 1915 the scholars published ninety articles, which were eventually compiled into twelve books. These ninety articles defend each of the essential doctrines then perceived to be under attack, and cover such things as the inspiration of Scripture, the virgin birth, deity and substitutionary atonement of Christ, and a host of others.

Though, by the turn of the 21st century, the term "Fundamentalist" has undergone a great deal of change, these Fundamentals harken back to those original Fundamentalists. If you have heard the term "Fundamentalist" used as a pejorative against Christians, and wish to understand what the term really means, then I would highly recommend that you get this book. Being written by scholars, as a scholarly defense, it is somewhat dry in its reading, plus by now some of the issues may seem out of date. But, that said, this is a fascinating and highly informative work of basic theology that I recommend to all believers. I am very glad that I read these Fundamentals, and think that you will be too.

Outstanding! A Treasurehouse of TRUTH!  Dec 31, 2000
This is one of the best, if not THE best, works of Christian Apologetics to be found ANYWHERE! The essays run the gamut from a critique of so-called "higher criticism", to what constitutes the true church, with a number of other topics as well. Read and enjoy the work that launched the movement of Christian "fundamentalism"!
