This second volume in the Theology of Lordship series provides Frame’s fullest exegetical defense of the centrality of God’s lordship in Scripture. It shows in detail from Scripture the three aspects of that lordship—God’s control, authority, and presence—and then shows that all the Bible’s teaching about God’s nature and actions can be understood as applications of his lordship. God acts and speaks to us so that we may know that he is Lord. In this way, we can better understand the importance of Jesus’ lordship as creator and savior and the lordship of the Holy Spirit as he brings Christ to us and us into Jesus’ presence.

Frame also discusses the traditional controversies: divine sovereignty and human responsibility, the goodness of God and the evil in the world, whether we should ever speak of God as “mother,” the possibility that God “changes” in some way, the nature of miracles, divine election, and whether God is “in time.” On many of these issues, Frame explores new ground, while remaining within the bounds of Reformed orthodoxy.

“Meticulously biblical, remarkably cogent, and powerfully transforming presentation.”
