Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Renowned theologian John Frame sheds much-needed light on the message and method of genuinely Christian apologetics in this landmark title. He insightfully examines apologetics in terms of proof, defense, and offense and clarifies the relationships of reason, proofs, and evidences to faith, biblical authority, and the lordship of Christ.

Two subjects of particular note are Frame’s fresh look at probability arguments and a stimulating investigation into the problem of evil. Some of the most valuable elements of this book are Frame’s extensive use of Scripture and his presentation of specific lines of argument. There is also a model dialogue in the concluding chapter that shows how these lines of argument work in conversation.

This is an extensively redeveloped and expanded version of Frame’s previous work, Apologetics to the Glory of God.

John Frame’s Apologetics to the Glory of God brought about a paradigm shift . . . in my understanding not only of apologetics but of all other intellectual endeavors as a Christian. Ever since then, it has been the first book I recommend to those looking for an introduction to Christian apologetics.

—James N. Anderson, Reformed Theological Seminary

John Frame winsomely, patiently, and persuasively contends for the gospel and brings together a rare blend of big-picture thinking, levelheaded reflection, biblical fidelity, love for the gospel and the church, and ability to write with care and clarity.

—John Piper, Bethlehem College and Seminary

John Frame manages to tackle the most difficult problems facing a Christian who endeavors to defend the faith: the nature of evil, world religions, the use of evidences, and much more. And he does so with grace, theological acumen, and an enviable straightforwardness. . . . [An] extraordinarily profitable volume.

—William Edgar, professor of apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, PA

Cornelius Van Til: An Analysis of His Thought

  • Author: John Frame
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 1995
  • Pages: 480

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The insights of Cornelius Van Til have generated intense discussion among friends and foes alike. Until now nearly everything written about Van Til has come from either uncritical followers or unsympathetic critics.

This volume, marking the one hundredth anniversary of Van Til’s birth, combines deep appreciation with incisive critical analysis of the renowned Westminster apologist's ideas. John M. Frame offers warm personal reflections on Van Til’s life and a close examination of his thought, including his interaction with prominent figures in the Reformed, evangelical, and secular communities. In terms of its spirit, scope, clarity, and profundity, this volume is must reading for serious students of apologetics and theology.

Superb. . . . Frame solves a number of enigmas which have puzzled students for decades. He also shows the way for future work and sets an agenda for apologetics which really needs to be heeded.

—William Edgar, professor of apologetics, Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, PA

Frame has given us a particularly searching and comprehensive analysis of Cornelius Van Til’s theology and apologetics. He is especially qualified to do so.

—Roger Nicole, visiting professor of theology, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando campus

Brings much-needed clarity to nearly all aspects of Van Til’s thought. . . . Readers interested in apologetics in general will benefit immensely from this work. Students of theology also would do well to make this priority reading.

—Stephen R. Spencer, Bibliotheca Sacra

An outstanding contribution. . . . incisive, cogent, appropriately witty, refreshingly charitable. . . . Frame’s work is agenda-setting in its suggestions, and deserves the widest possible reading.

—M.P. Ryan, The Reformed Theological Review

Speaking the Truth in Love: The Theology of John M. Frame

  • Editor: John J. Hughes

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Speaking the Truth in Love: The Theology of John M. Frame is a festschrift honoring Professor Frame’s career in seminary teaching and publishing.

Unlike many festschrifts, this book does not merely collect essays on subjects of interest to the honoree. Rather, it analyzes Frame’s own work in the fields of theology, apologetics, ethics, worship, the church, and other areas. Containing some forty articles, it is one of the largest festschrifts ever published. The authors have worked in numerous fields and are familiar with Frame’s work; many are Frame’s former students and colleagues.

This is the first large-scale analysis of Frame’s distinctive approach to theology. The essays go into considerable depth, comparing Frame’s conceptual approach with the approaches of others and even applying his ideas to various fields beyond those that he has explored.

There are few, past or present, whom I would place . . . ahead of Professor Frame. . . . He has been privileged to make a strategic and potentially huge contribution to the future well-being . . . of the entire evangelical world.

—J.I. Packer, Board of Governors Professor of Theology, Regent College

What is refreshing is his ability to model a firm stance on truth with a heartfelt affection for people. Razor-sharp reason is used to carve error away from truth, not skin off adversaries.

—John Piper, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church

If Frame writes it, I read it, not because I always find myself in perfect agreement, but because he teaches me.

—D.A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

My entire Bible-centered approach to all I have written on theology and ethics . . . owes much to Frame’s example and the convictions he instilled in me in his classes.

—Wayne Grudem, research professor of theology and biblical studies, Phoenix Seminary

John Frame has served the church as a teacher par excellence. . . . He has distinguished himself in the fields of theology, apologetics, philosophy, and Christian ethics.

—R.C. Sproul, founder and chairman, Ligonier Ministries

It is hard to imagine an area of theological study that has not been impacted by John’s work in some way.

—Bryan Chapell, professor of homiletics and president, Covenant Theological Seminary

Theology in Three Dimensions: A Guide to Triperspectivalism and Its Significance

  • Author: John Frame
  • Publisher: P&R
  • Publication Date: 2017
  • Pages: 136

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Because God created all things with coherent unity, everything can be understood from the perspective of everything else. We experience the world in the context of our own bodies, but every day we broaden our understanding through the perspectives of others. Meanwhile, our omniscient God is also omniperspectival. Through his revelation, he allows us a glimpse of his own divine perspective.

What does this mean for us? One valuable dimension of this reality is that theological issues can also be helpfully viewed from multiple perspectives without compromising their unity and truth. In this accessible introduction to his Bible study and theological method, John Frame teaches us to approach doctrine with situational, normative, and existential perspectives modeled on the Trinity.

A clear and refreshing explanation of John Frame’s insightful approach to studying the Bible (and everything else!) from three different ‘perspectives.’ It is the fruit of a lifetime of thinking and teaching.

—Wayne Grudem, research professor of theology and biblical studies, Phoenix Seminary

As one of the foremost Christian philosophers and theologians of our day, Frame argues for us to think of theology not only as the accumulation and memorization of doctrinal ideas, but also as the practical application of those ideas to hearts and lives.

—Steve Childers, president, Pathway Learning

Frame shatters the common notion that profundity and scholarship must be long, tedious, arcane, and impractical. . . . The crisp text, usable discussion questions, handy glossary, and additional resources make this work an accessible gateway for exploring and habituating ‘what God’s Word requires me to do now.’

—Jeffery J. Ventrella, senior counsel, senior vice-president, strategic training, Alliance Defending Freedom
