John M. Frame (BD, Westminster Theological Seminary; AM, MPhil, Yale University; DD, Belhaven College) is J. D. Trimble Professor of Systematic Theology and Philosophy, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando. He previously taught theology and apologetics at Westminster Theological Seminary (Philadelphia) and at Westminster Seminary California.
A magnificent treatment that will be a standard work for decades. Frame stands in the great Reformed tradition of Calvin and Charnock, Hodge and Bavinck, yet in his treatment of the doctrine of God he surpasses them all with an amazing breadth of knowledge and depth of understanding. In every section Frame brings fresh insight to old doctrines.
A meticulusly biblical, remarkably cogent, and powerfully transforming presentation.
A joy to read. It is an intellectual treat, rigorous in analysis, exhaustive in exposition, and cogent in argument. It has listened reverently to all the great voices of the past, yet chooses its own innovative framework, forms its own independent conclusions, and participates fully in all the major theological discourses of the present. Even when I disagreed (as I sometimes did), I was never offended: my position had been treated with respect. Preachers and academic theologians will soon count it an indispensable tool.
Masterfully expounds and defends the biblical doctrine of God. Its adherence to a scriptural worldview gives it power, freshness, and creativity that provide deep roots for the future of systematic theology.
Biblical and pastoral, profound and clear. . . . seeks fresh ways to address open theism, process theology, feminism, and other contemporary issues in light of the triune God.
