Vern Poythress, one of today’s leading Reformed theologians, has made many vital contributions to evangelical scholarship—particularly a vision to glorify Christ as Lord over all areas of human life in order to redeem all realms of human thought.

In honor of his many years of faithful thinking and writing, twenty evangelical scholars have come together to produce a set of essays on topics of importance throughout his ministry: biblical exegesis, the doctrine of the Trinity, worldview, history, and ethics.
