Publisher's Description

There is an increasing tendency in Evangelical circles to regard disagreement in our allegedly postmodern world as inherently oppressive. Too many people sit on the fence and ignore, or are unaware of, the fact that Christianity is an historical religion. As Laurence Peter once said History repeats itself because nobody listens.
The point of having a debate is not to have a debate and then agree to differ (sitting around in a mutually affirming love-fest) - the point of debate, as the Apostle Paul clearly demonstrates time and again in the book of Acts, is to establish which position is best. With this collection of essays, Carl Trueman will provoke you into thinking for yourself and to have an opinion on THINGS THAT MATTER!

    Carl Trueman is one of the most critical thinkers in the field of historical Christian theology today. In this small but powerful volume, he challenges many of the contemporary approaches by which we package the Gospel in light of the historic Christian faith. "The Wages of Spin" (the intriguing title which first drew me to the book) is divided into two parts. In part one there are six evangelical essays that appear to be taken from Trueman's lectures and/or debates. Part two contains shorter, blog-type entries. Both sections present compelling arguments for the recovery of historic Reformation approaches to witness and worship that are frequently missing in today's church. One may not agree en toto with everything the author writes, but it is difficult to find argument with his reasonable logic. Trueman's style is clear and concise, sprinkled with doses of timely and appropriate humor. Both the content and format of this book are on the order of a less-scholarly theological journal. That is an observation, not a criticism. It does, in fact, leave the reader wanting more. It is difficult to know exactly in which section of one's personal library it should be placed, but it is well-deserving of being included.
