Publisher's Description

In this book, the reader will be exposed to theological topics that are at the core of the Westminster Confession’s theology, topics such as justification, adoption, the kingship of Christ, the doctrine of Scripture, the Lord’s Day, covenant theology, the atonement, and Christian liberty.

Author Bio

Anthony T Selvaggio (JD, The University of Buffalo School of Law; MDiv, Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary) currently serves as a visiting professor of Biblical Studies at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He is also Theologian in Residence at the Rochester Reformed Presbyterian Church in Rochester, New York.

Editorial Reviews

It was, I think, Professor David Calhoun (himself one of the finest contemporary historical theologians in the Reformed tradition) who first introduced me to the writings of Wayne Spear. I was working on a response to the infamous Rogers and McKim proposal, and Spear’s magisterial work on William Whitaker and the Westminster Doctrine of Scripture was just what I needed. I’ve been an admirer ever since, and so it is a special privilege and pleasure to commend this delightful set of essays penned in his honor. Dr. Spear is a master Reformed systematic theologian, and so this volume appropriately contains a theological feast by leading reformed scholars, in honor of a faithful reformed divine, covering a wide scope of theological reflection. Read, learn and enjoy!

I was working on a response to the infamous Rogers and McKim proposal, and Spear’s magisterial work on William Whitaker and the Westminster Doctrine of Scripture was just what I needed. I’ve been an admirer ever since, and so it is a special privilege and pleasure to commend this delightful set of essays penned in his honor. Dr. Spear is a master Reformed systematic theologian, and so this volume appropriately contains a stirring defence of that vocation by Dick Gaffin. Carl Trueman asks us to re-appreciate James Buchanan’s authoritative but often overlooked work on justification, and so we should. Joel Beeke shows us a point that perhaps has even been overlooked by Jim Packer, in a ground-breaking exposition of the Puritans on adoption. Scott Clark provides a brilliant piece of historical theological detective work, putting the Reformed doctrines of justification and sanctification in context. David McKay, reigning Gillespie scholar of the day, appropriately points us to the kingship of Christ – a biblical truth near and dear to the hearts of all Covenanters and Covenanter-sympathizers. C.J. Williams highlights an overlooked gem of confessional theology and points out its practical pastoral importance. Rowland gives an extremely helpful overview of the Lord’s Day in Scripture, confession and Christian history. Anthony Selvaggio ably argues for the unity and continuity of covenant theology from Calvin to Westminster . Richard Gamble gives us a window into the confessional doctrine of atonement, with special emphasis on nineteenth- and twentieth century reformed divines. Finally D.G. Hart offers a thought-provoking essay challenging the regnant reformed worldviewish wholism with the out-of-fashion (but-not-to-be-underestimated) dualism of the confession. All in all, here is a theological feast by leading reformed scholars, in honor of a faithful reformed divine, covering a wide scope of theological reflection. Read, learn and enjoy!
The Faith Once Delivered is a splendid collection of scholarly essays on matters of immense importance to Christianity in general and to Reformed Christians in particular. These studies appropriately honor Prof. Wayne Spear at his retirement. They also belong in the library of every serious student of theology.
