Tab Name:
Hastings Prayer, Faith, Peace

Focusing on theology and application, Hastings wrote about three important doctrines of Christianity: Prayer, Faith, and Peace. Hastings believed spiritual growth revolved around an understanding of these three areas.

Over 1,200 pages of scholarship in 3 volumes, this Series represented Hasting’s final endeavor with some of this material published after his death. Hastings sought to avoid a “dry” presentation of Christian doctrine by compiling practical exposition with examples and illustrations. His method of writing was more “literary” because of his study of classical literature.

Encouraging, practical, engaging, and inspiring, this classic series will benefit teachers, preachers, and students.

Series Preface
There is a widespread and earnest desire on the part of teachers of the Bible to do more than has lately been done for the teaching of Christian doctrine. The complaint that doctrine is dry is due to the way it is taught, even more than to the “spirit of the age.” Anything is dry that is disorderly or unreal. The Doctrines are presented in an orderly sequence, and contact with reality is maintained at every step by means of illustration or example.

The Christian Doctrine of Prayer
Hastings addresses the complicated issue of prayer. He explores the nature, principles, types, and value of prayer. Hastings also gives practical encouragement and advice for those beginning in prayer, as well as for seasoned prayers. Included are bibliographies, lists of books for further reading, and examples. See the table of contents below.

The Christian Doctrine of Faith
Hastings brings together both the doctrine and practice of faith in this work. He recognizes the necessity as well as the difficulty of faith for Christians. He studies different topics such as range, faith in God, faith in humanity, degrees of faith, and faith in Christ as savior. Hastings offers practical guides and examples for pastors and those exploring the nature of faith. Included are bibliographies, lists of books for further reading, and examples. See the table of contents below.

The Christian Doctrine of Peace
Published posthumously, this resource on Christian peace was the last edited works of Hastings. He not only focuses what peace is for the Christian, but on social and culture peace as well. Hastings discusses peace with God, peace with man, peace of conscience, and the impact of war. Included are bibliographies, lists of books for further reading, and examples. See the table of contents below.

About Hastings
James Hastings (1852-1922) was a Presbyterian clergyman, author, and Bible scholar. Hastings was born in Scotland, studied the classics at the University of Aberdeen, attended the Free Church Divinity College in Aberdeen, and was ordained a Free Church minister in 1884. Hastings was a prolific author. Hastings studied Literature extensively prior to his pursuit of theology. That uniquely qualified Hastings to intertwine theology with classic literature.

About the theWord Edition:
This text was scanned, digitized, and proofread by WordModules.com.
  • The text has been changed slightly from the print edition:
  • Scripture references have been better formatted for electronic presentation in theWord.
  • Most implicit scripture references were made specific to reference the actual book chapter:verse rather than expecting the reader to deduce the chapter or book.
  • Scripture citations were added to unattributed Scripture quotes (common with nineteenth and early twentieth century authors because readers then were more knowledgeable than modern readers).
  • The "Literature" sections were moved from the beginning of each chapter to the end.
  • The "Chapter" designation in each topic was added and the roman numeral was replaced with Arabic digits, i.e. "Chapter 5" instead of "IV."
