Kenneth L. Gentry, Jr. is pastor of Living Hope Presbyterian Church in the Greenville, SC, area. On this site he offers "Serious Studies for Serious Christians" in a broad range of theological and exegetical issues from a Reformed theological perspective. Some of the key issues for which we have educational materials include: Calvinism, reformed theology, Presbyterianism, eschatology in general, postmillennialism, preterism, the Book of Revelation, theonomy, six-day creation, presuppositionalism, predestination, lordship salvation, infant baptism, the Christian worldview, Christian education, the Christian and alcohol, and more.
We have produced in-depth materials critiquing and rebutting dispensationalism, hyperpreterism, the framework hypothesis, paedocommunion, exclusive psalmody, charismatic phenomena, annihilationism, and other popular views.
Because of our interest in promoting the Christian worldview, we also offer a Christian writing correspondence course: "Righteous Writing." This course is designed to train you in reading techniques, research method, improving writing style, securing a publisher, and techniques of book promotion. Writing well can be an important means of promoting the faith in the marketplace of ideas.
