Like most academics, Frame published much of his thought in the form of articles rather than books. The Collected Shorter Theological Writings includes all his theologically focused articles published in scholarly journals, multiauthor volumes, dictionaries, encyclopedias, and more popular publications, as well as his articles posted at such internet sites as www.frame-poythress.org and www.reformedperspectives.org. There also are a number of book reviews in this collection. In his book reviews, Frame tries not only to describe and evaluate an author’s work but also to engage in a dialogue—an exchange of views. Thus, his book reviews contain many of his ideas, as well as those of other writers. Shorter Theological Writings also includes a number of written sermons, syllabi, lecture outlines, and study guides. The included “Primer on Perspectivalism” provides a concise introduction to some of Frame’s distinctive ideas.

In the Logos edition of this volume, you get easy access to Scripture texts and to a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Hovering over Scripture references links you instantly to the verse you’re looking for, and with passage guides, word studies, and a wealth of other tools from Logos, you can delve into God’s Word like never before!

“In the ‘normative perspective,’ we ask the question, ‘what do God’s norms direct us to believe?’ In the ‘situational perspective,’ we ask, ‘what are the facts?’ In the ‘existential perspective,’ we ask, ‘what belief is most satisfying to a believing heart?’” (source)

“Generalizing, we gather that the Father is the supreme authority, the Son the executive power, and the Spirit the divine presence who dwells in and with God’s people.” (source)

“In my judgement, and that of many others, extreme preterism is unorthodox. But partisans of the other eschatological views have exaggerated the importance of adopting one such position over another. It is not evident that Scripture is precise enough in this area to establish decisively one of these as the truth, let alone as a test of orthodoxy. And, contrary to the theonomic10 postmillennialists, I think that eschatological positions have had very little to do with the cultural pessimism or optimism of their proponents.” (source)

“Only the Lord can speak the word of forgiveness, that word which declares sinners to be righteous, that word which promises eternal life.” (source)

“changing. But these changes are the outworking of God’s eternal plan, which does not change.” (source)
