One of Christianity Today’s “100 Most Influential Books of the 20th Century”, J. Gresham Machen’s earnest case for true, biblical faith and communion in Jesus Christ has been read around the world for 100 years. Originally published in 1923, this new edition features a brand-new foreword by Kevin DeYoung and is issued with the hope and prayer that the next century will be celebrated as one of reformation and renewal for Christ’s church throughout the world.


“Machen’s classic, Christianity & Liberalism, is in many ways needed more now than when it was penned a century ago. In this long-treasured and much-needed work, he applied the keen edge of the truth to theological liberalism to clarify that it is not a more open-minded expression of Christianity but a different religion altogether. Therefore, the battle against liberalism is not really a fight for ‘conservativism,’ but for Christianity itself. If you’ve never read this book, get it and read it now; if you have read it, read it again!”

Joel R. Beeke President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

“Liberalism promised to save Christianity from the so-called corruption of Greek thought, which she said was evident in a Nicene trinity and a Chalcedonian Christ. But J. Gresham Machen had the courage to stand up and say that the liberal project will leave the church bankrupt. Christianity and Liberalism must be resurrected today so that the next generation moves beyond the wasteland of the liberal project to the lush garden of classical Christianity.”

Matthew Barrett, Professor of Christian Theology, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

“In a day when the lines have become blurred regarding what constitutes orthodox Christianity, Christianity & Liberalism serves the church as a roadmap crying, ‘This is the way, walk here.’ With the precision of a surgeon’s scalpel, J. Gresham Machen strikes blow after blow against the premise of liberal theology and warns of its dangers if tolerated. Though written in 1923, Christianity & Liberalism remains relevant today as Machen, though long gone, continues to sift the wheat from the tares in this classic defense of orthodox Christianity.”

Dustin Benge, Fellow of The Andrew Fuller Center for Baptist Studies
