A New Anti-FV Book

I hear this book’s really going to town against the FV. Check it out.

    Looks great. I sure wish I still lived near Southern Seminary’s campus so I could read books like this. All the Christian bookstores around here in Delaware are really crummy. Someone needs to start a website for a Christian book exchange or something. Gene, are you planning to reviewing this book?

    Theological Satire

    I hope by going “to town,” we mean more than a footnote saying something like, “This applies to the current justification controversy. While proponents of FV/NPP/Auburn Avenue theologies mix faith and works as an instrumental means of justificaiton, tradition Reformed domgatics has….”

    There’s already WAY too much that our there in print.

    That said, I’m gunna get it… it looks delightful. Historical theology is my favorite discipline/study. I’m actually giddy.

    A note: on June 24 of this year Mark Horne, reviser of Covenant Theology, announces on his blog he is reading Witsius for the first time; but not only that, he references his reading of Packer’s famous intro to Economy of the Covenants (basically a brilliant, concise overview of covenant theology) and he says it was: “Enjoyable.”

    Let me translate that: Horne learned new things at each paragraph and it had nothing to do with what his Federal Vision teachers had told him. (Wait a minute, maybe Mark is going through a real learning stage here. I mean, he’s actually reading Witsius. So maybe I should back off… On the other hand, his tone over on his blog in this exercise of reviewing Witsius is not good. He’s reviewing Witsius like Witsius were a new grad of Westminster California. I.e., Mark is not amused from the get-go. He even takes the opportunity to ignorantly mock Witsius’ prose in his dedication to royalty. Wow, I read that too, but I just figured Witsius was engaging in a formal exercise unique to his time, and as tedious to him as it is to the reader. But when you approach everything that is above you with arrogance, vanity, pride, and bad will everythting is material for ignorant mocking.)

    The mockers of the end times…
