Many of Benjamin B. Warfeild's shorter and more popular-level writings failed to make it into either the 5-volume or the 10-volume set of his works. Selected Shorter Writings brings together 100 of these articles. Many selections in this collection are less weighty and more practical than those in the larger sets. Volume 2 contains sermons, book reviews, introductions to books, articles published in encyclopedias or theological journals, and a small book, The Right of Systematic Theology. These articles often teach us something about Dr. Warfield as a man. They generally deal in a simpler and more popular way with subjects that concern us in our daily walk as Christians.
This anthology of Warfield's most valuable shorter writings is being reprinted by popular demand. In these two volumes, the editor brings together over 100 articles, including book introductions, book reviews, encyclopedia articles, sermons, and a small book The Right of Systematic Theology. Many selections are less weighty and more practical than those in the larger sets and none of them appear in the five- or ten-volume set of Warfield's works.
Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield (18871921) was Professor of Didactic and Polemic Theology in the Theological Seminary of Princeton, New Jersey.
Whatever has kept these essays out of print no longer prevails, and their republication is most welcomed... we are thankful for his faithfulness and clarity.
