The Select Works and Courses of John Frame Bundle includes three books, three courses, and the complete theological correspondence from prominent theologian and philosopher John Frame. These books and courses will introduce you to important concepts related to philosophy, worldview, reason, ethics, and the clarity of Scripture. You’ll develop a more rounded understanding of these topics and explore how the Christian faith should influence the way you think.
In CS101 Biblical Worldview and Critical Thinking, esteemed Christian theologian and philosopher John Frame explores what it means to think like a Christian. He introduces philosophy, discusses reason and how to become a better thinker, and describes what goes into a worldview. Throughout the course, Dr. Frame emphasizes that “philosophy is a form of spiritual warfare,” stressing the importance of thinking about the world in a way that reflects God.
In CS211 History of Philosophy, John Frame presents a brief survey of philosophy. Beginning with the garden of Eden, Dr. Frame describes the development of thought and worldview, and he explores how different philosophies have reflected or influenced theology. This course will help you to understand the assumptions present in a range of worldviews and to be better equipped to interact with different ways of thinking.
The clarity of Scripture is a key part of the Reformation doctrine of Scripture. In this short course, John Frame considers what the clarity of Scripture means. He describes its origin and discusses it in light of three of God’s attributes: His sovereignty, His authority, and His presence. Dr. Frame also explains how to understand the clarity of Scripture when reading passages in the Bible that do not seem to be clear.
Over the course of his noteworthy career as a theologian, John Frame corresponded prolifically with theologians, pastors, and students, answering their questions on matters of the faith, the church, and the practice of theology.
The Theological Correspondence of John Frame now makes this correspondence available exclusively through Lexham Press. More personal, but no less theologically robust than his academic work, Dr. Frame himself states that this collection of letters is the single most comprehensive account of his theological thought.
Ranging widely in topic and spanning over 300,000 words—the equivalent of three print volumes—Theological Correspondence contains letters that will be of value to any pastor, theologian or student, just as they were to the original recipients. Organized topically and fully tagged and cross referenced, this resource is now the best single account of Dr. Frame’s thought available and an invaluable tool for the study of theology in the Reformed tradition.
Many Protestant Christians are suspicious of natural theology, which claims that we can learn about God through revelation outside the Bible. How can we know anything about God apart from Scripture? In Nature’s Case for God, distinguished theologian John Frame argues that Christians are not forbidden from seeking to learn about God from his creation. In fact, the Bible itself shows this to be possible.
In nine short and lucid chapters that include questions for discussion, Frame shows us what we can learn about God and how we relate to him from the world outside the Bible. If the heavens really do declare the glory of God, as the psalmist claims, it makes a huge difference for how we understand God and how we introduce him to those who don’t yet know Christ.
Christianity is more than a religion: it is also a complex intellectual tradition.
Christians and non-Christians alike who want to understand the world as it is today have to understand Christianity too. Christianity makes objective claims, but also presents a new way of thinking about the world. In Christianity Considered renowned theologian John Frame introduces the reader to the Christian religion and its unique intellectual framework, describing the key pillars of Christian thought and how these shape the Christian worldview. Covering a range of topics, from the resurrection to the Christian posture toward politics, Christianity Considered is a valuable guide to understanding the Christian faith as an intellectual tradition.
Useful for both the Christian reader looking for a better understanding of the faith and the skeptical reader who seeks to understand the intellectual tradition that has done much to shape the modern world.
Everyone is a philosopher, and how we live reveals what we most deeply believe.
If you and God were asked the same question, would you both respond in the same way? Are Christians right to believe what we do?
In We Are All Philosophers, John M. Frame takes seven major questions of philosophy and compares the Bible’s answers with common philosophical ones:
We Are All Philosophers carries all the marks of John Frame’s books: he appeals to Scripture frequently and carefully. He writes elegantly and simply, a byproduct of having mastered the complicated philosophical topics he surveys.
