Interview with Fred Zaspel on The Theology of B. B. Warfield

The Theology of B. B. Warfield: A Systematic SummaryAllen Mickle interviewed Fred Zaspel about his latest book, The Theology of B. B. Warfield: A Systematic Study.

Here are the questions he asked him:

  1. What made you first decide to pursue Warfield as someone to study?
  2. What do you see as the main contributions that Warfield made to theology?
  3. Why do you think Warfield is as neglected as he is in modern theology?
  4. Can you briefly explain why so many assume Warfield taught an evolutionary position while your research seems to prove otherwise?
  5. What other areas of Warfield studies need to be pursued?
  6. What other resources on Warfield and his theology would you recommend?
  7. What are the main benefits for busy pastors to study Warfield?
  8. How has Warfield and his theology helped you in your ministry? What did you learn from him that affected how you serve as a pastor?
  9. As a pastor who pursued a Ph.D. (of which we know this book is the substance of) would you recommend the pursuit for other pastors? What advice would you give pastors pursuing academic Ph.D.’s?
  10. Do you have plans to write or teach more on Warfield and his thinking? Now that the book is done, what are your plans?
