The Fundamentals: A Testimony To The Truth (generally referred to simply as The Fundamentals) is a set of 90 essays published from 1910 to 1915 by the Bible Institute of Los Angeles. The Fundamentals were originally edited by A. C. Dixon and later by Reuben Archer Torrey. Originally published as a 12-volume set, The Fundamentals were later condensed to a four-volume set, but retained all 90 essays in their original form. The 90 essays were written by 64 different authors, representing most of the major Christian denominations.
The essays were designed to affirm, among other things, conservative Protestant beliefs, especially those of the Reformed tradition, and defend against ideas deemed inimical to them. They are widely considered to be the foundation of modern Christian fundamentalism.
The essays were originally financed by Lyman Stewart in 1909 to set out what they believed to be the fundamentals of Christian faith. These were to be sent free to ministers, missionaries, Sunday School superintendents and others active in Christian ministry.
The Coming of Christ - Charles R. Erdman - Argues that Christ's second coming will be (1) personal and literal, (2) with great "glory" (change, disruption) to the world, (3) imminent (possibly occurring at any time). Erdman commends humility between diverse positions, talking in turn about pre-millennial, post-millennial, and preterist positions.
