- So the author talks about 3 theologians to study the reformed doctrine of justification - Calvin, Edwards and you would expect the third to be Luther, Warfield, Whitefield, Lloyd-Jones, Spurgeon but he chose NT Wright. I agree with Wright's first sentence in his quote...he should be surprised. This is like comparing a Lamborghini, Ferrari, and a broken down rusted frame no engine 4 flat tires been sitting in the open field for 25 years Yugo.
- What happened to this title? I pre-ordered this back in January of 2011.
- Back in mid 2013, Moody decided to pull out from Logos. You will find the information here: https://community.logos.com/forums/t/69039.aspx?PageIndex=1
- "A fresh reading of Calvinism emerges from these pages, rich in historical insight and open to alternative positions in doctrines of election, of justification, and of the scope of salvation in Christ." comes from one of the reviewers. Another reviewer echoes the same sentiment. Then if you read a couple of the sample pages the concerns about this book grow. This sounds like someone saying they are reformed yet wanting to redefine core reformed doctrines. From the reviews and the sample pages I am not sure what they mean by reformed.
- One may disagree with Crisp's conclusions, but Oliver Crisp is an excellent philosophical theologian and I'm glad his works are starting to appear in Logos. Crisp's work is worth reading and interacting with, even if holds to more traditional Reformed theology (as I do).
