Kim Riddlebarger Reviews The Theology of B. B. Warfield

The Theology of B. B. Warfield: A Systematic SummaryKim Riddlebarger, senior pastor of Christ Reformed Church in Anaheim, California and co-host of the popular White Horse Inn, reviewed Fred Zaspel’s The Theology of B. B. Warfield: A Systematic Summary. Riddlebarger wrote his dissertation on Warfield1, so he is in a good position to offer a helpful review of Zaspel’s work. It’s worth a careful read.

Here’s his conclusion:

In conclusion, let me say that Fred Zaspel has done a great service to Christ’s church by giving us a most important and most useful volume, one which should be found on the bookshelf and in the iPad (it is also available as a eBook) of anyone who is interested in Reformed theology, the history of Old Princeton, and the work of B. B. Warfield.

Thank you Dr. Zaspel, for writing the book I wish I could have written!  This volume is highly recommended.

Wes Bredenhof Reviews The Theology of B. B. Warfield

The Theology of B. B. Warfield: A Systematic SummaryWes Bredenhof, Pastor of the Providence Canadian Reformed Church in Hamilton, ON, has a nice review of Fred Zaspel’s The Theology of B. B. Warfield: A Systematic Summary. In addition to summarizing the book helpfully, he discusses Warfield’s views on apologetics, Scripture, evolution, and perfectionism. It’s worth a read.

Here’s his conclusion:

The Theology of B. B. Warfield is a comprehensive guide to the thought of “the Lion of Princeton.”  There’s no question it will be a standard reference for decades to come.  Anyone interested in the development of Reformed theology on our continent needs to have it and read it.
