真正的复兴

Revival and Revivalism

by Iain H. Murray


price $15.00 $13.50

Description

从1750年到1858年的美洲福音派历史与分析 评 论 《真正的复兴》是教会史研究领域的经典,不仅记录了教会的过去,更是开启当代福音派运动及其深层次需要的钥匙。当今每个渴望教会复兴的基督徒都应阅读本书。 ——傅格森(救赎主神学院系统神学教授/《磐石之上》与《日光之上》作者) 本书依据史实分析18-19世纪的美洲福音派复兴运动,指明如何区分“真正的复兴”与“奋兴运动”,以及此差异对今日教会的重大影响。这是精研复兴运动史的杰作,是苏醒人心的暮鼓晨钟,是期盼教会复兴者必读之作! ——吕沛渊(威斯敏斯特神学院博士) 《真正的复兴》一书,我早已拜读过英文原著,受益匪浅。不管是在神学的正统性上,还是在历史的客观性上,此书都属于经典之作。真正的“复兴”,永远是“上帝神奇的工作”,不是来自人为的操纵和宣传所造成的各种各样的“奋兴”。“复兴”的共同点就是:“相信上帝在他的话语上永远信实,相信基督已从死里复活,相信圣灵已被赐下以确保上帝的国度会不断扩展”;而人为的“奋兴”则是“情绪性的、出于人为操控的事情”。真正的复兴所代表的是“思想”,是真 理方面的发现和回归,最终也落实在生命的改变和美德的增加上。因此,真正的复兴来自圣灵大能的降下,使人真正认罪、悔改,使周围的世界出现“整体性的变革”。中国教会正在经历真正的“复兴”,但也不乏各种形式的人为的“奋兴”。唯愿默里先生此书中译本的出版,能够帮助中国教会识别何谓真正的“复兴”和人为的“奋兴”,在复兴的烈火中能够既有火热的心志,同时保持头脑的冷静和清醒,消除各种山寨版的“复兴”和“基督教”,使中国教会和社会更多得蒙真理的光照与祝福! ——王志勇(香港雅和博圣约书院院长/美国主恩基督教会主任牧师) 內容簡介 “决志信主”等同于悔改归信吗?复兴是情绪化的吗?复兴是人为操作的吗?复兴是可以复制的吗?真正的复兴必定会带来生命的改变和美德的增加。因此,真正的复兴来自圣灵大能的降下,使人真正认罪、悔改,使周围的世界出现“整体性的变革”。 伊恩•默里分析了1750年到1858年在美国大部分宗派中出现的复兴运动,用大量历史事实推论得出复兴与奋兴之间的差别。帮助读者去伪存真,认识真正的复兴。
