Benjamin Breckinridge Warfield has been described as one of the most influential and important theologians in American history, second only to Jonathan Edwards. A prolific writer, he published on a wide variety of theological topics.
Warfield scholar Fred Zaspel focuses here on Warfields writing on the subject of the Christian life. The gospel, the good news of our salvation through Jesus Christ, is central to all of life for Warfield. Zaspel touches on such topics as Bible reading, prayer, holiness, and work, at every point showing how Warfield brings biblical and theological insight to the question of how we are to live in light of the gospel.
Part of the Theologians on the Christian Life series, edited by Stephen Nichols and Justin Taylor, this volume will help Christians think through what it means to live a God-honoring life before the cross of Christ.

We are already indebted to Fred Zaspel for his work The Theology of B. B. Warfield-a book that has introduced a new generation to the voluminous writings of a Princeton scholar who was both New Testament interpreter and systematic theologian. Warfields style feels a tad impenetrable to many contemporary readers, but through Zaspel, Warfield, though dead, still speaks. But can any devotional and practical guidance come out of old Princeton? Zaspel's latest contribution, Warfield on the Christian Life: Living in Light of the Gospel, does not simply answer with a resounding affirmative, but again faithfully unpacks Warfield and shows him to be a theologian of head and heart. Above all, Warfield is an integrated thinker, so he is ideally equipped to show how that which is central to the Bible, the gospel of God, rightly shapes the Christians entire life. And Zaspel makes this accessible.
