9780830819874: Two Cities, Two Loves: Christian Responsibility in a Crumbling Culture

In One Systematic Volume James Boice provides a readable overview of Christian theology. Laypeople, students and pastors will all benefit from this rich source that covers all of the major doctrines of the Christian faith.
With scholarly rigor and a pastor's heart, Boice carefully opens the topics of the nature of God, the character of his natural and special revelation, the Fall, and the person and work of Christ. He then goes on to consider the work of the Holy Spirit in justification and sanctification. The book closes with careful discussions of the church and the last things.
In this revised edition of a formerly four-volume work, Boice maintains a remarkable practicality and thoroughness that have made this a standard reference and textbook of evangelical faith.

Review:

Two Cities, Two Loves calls us back to Augustine, the great Christian leader and theologian who witnessed the fall of the Roman Empire at the hands of the barbarians. In response to this dramatic event, Augustine wrote his great masterpiece, "The City of God". There he argued that history is the working out of one great universal principle, that there are two rival cities formed by two loves. The earthly city, formed by love of self even to the contempt of God, stands in contrast with the heavenly city, the city of God, founded and shaped by love of God even to the contempt of self. These two cities are progressing along separate paths toward radically different ends. Yet members of God's city are nevertheless in the world and need to conduct themselves as a renewing force within it. Two Cities, Two Loves is a contemporary restatement of the themes sounded originally in Augustine's City of God. Deeply biblical in its argument, thoroughly conversant with contemporary culture and practically informed by personal involvement in urban ministry, Two Cities, Two Loves is a book for our times. It awakens Christians to their identity within society and their eternal destiny, and it instructs them in the one right things to do: "Be God's people in the midst of this world's culture". -- Midwest Book Review
