A New Book!—God of Our Fathers: Classical Theism for the Contemporary Church

The good folks at the Davenant Institute—who are now employing me—have just released a new book, God of Our Fathers: Classical Theism for the Contemporary Church (available on Amazon here), which contains a series of essays arguing for classical theism and its contemporary relevance.

There are some truly outstanding essays in the book and a foreward by Fred Sanders. E.J. Hutchinson’s work on Melanchthon alone is worth the price of entry, for those who are interested in this area of theology. I also have an essay on the subject of the eternal subordination of the Son debate and the troubled relationship between biblical and systematic theology. You can see a preview of some of the material in the book here.

    And nice to see the fairly generous PDF “preview” on the Davenant Institute site, which includes Sanders’s Foreward, Littlejohn’s introduction, and chunks of (kind, but cruel!) articles by Duby and Roberts.

  2. P. Metzger says:

    “The Son is begotten of the Father and the Spirit from the Father
    and the Son” (p. 110 of the preview of your article). Surely a typo for “the Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son”? Something worth correcting in future printings, if it hasn’t been already!
