Overview

Systematic Theology is the culmination and creative synthesis of John Frame’s writing on, teaching about, and studying of God’s Word. This magisterial opus—at once biblical, clear, cogent, readable, accessible, and practical—summarizes the mature thought of one of the most important and original Reformed theologians of the last 100 years. From start to finish Frame’s Systematic Theology shows how the Bible explains God’s sweeping plan for mankind. Using clear and practical language accessible for both pastor and layperson, Frame seeks to help readers apply Scripture to life.

Praise for the Print Edition

Few in our day champion a vision of God as massive, magnificent, and biblical as John Frame’s. For decades, he has given himself to the church, to his students, and to meticulous thinking and the rigorous study of the Bible. He has winsomely, patiently, and persuasively contended for the gospel in the secular philosophical arena, as well as in the thick of the church worship wars and wrestlings with feminism and open theism. He brings together a rare blend of big-picture thinking, level-headed reflection, biblical fidelity, a love for the gospel and the church, and the ability to write with care and clarity.

John Piper, founder, Desiring God Ministries

John M. Frame’s Systematic Theology is a remarkable achievement. It is simultaneously scholarly yet accessible, sweeping in scope but penetrating in insight, steeped in historic orthodoxy yet fresh in reflection.

Peter A. Lillback, president, Westminster Theological Seminary

Systematic Theology . . . is a worthy climax to the life’s work of one who has only ever sought to be a faithful servant of Christ, teaching in his church. It is a privilege to celebrate its appearing and to commend it for serious study. I guarantee that the dividends of such study will be uniformly high. Thank you, John Frame, for this superb gift.

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

Clear, thorough, intelligent, and fair to opposing views, John Frame’s work will now be the standard within traditional Reformed theology.

Cornelius Plantinga Jr., president emeritus, Calvin Theological Seminary
