A History of Western Philosophy and Theology by John M. Frame
John M. Frame (AB, Princeton University; BD, Westminster Theological Seminary; MA and MPhil, Yale University; DD, Belhaven College) holds the J. D. Trimble Chair of Systematic Theology and Philosophy at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando and is the author of many books, including the four-volume Theology of Lordship series.
"John Frame has done it again!
In the lucid and comprehensive style of his Theology of Lordship volumes, he here presents a full overview of Western thought about knowledge of God as it must appear to all who receive Holy Scripture, as he does, as the record, product, and present reality of God speaking.
And the solid brilliance of the narrative makes it a most effective advocacy for the Kuyper-Van Til perspective that in a well-digested form it represents.
It is a further outstanding achievement by John Frame.
My admiration for John's work grows and grows."
Frame sorts out the good and the bad with clarity and skill, using the plumb line of Scripture.
Along the way he also provides a devastating critique of liberal theologies, showing that at bottom they are philosophies of human autonomy masquerading as forms of Christianity."
-Vern S. Poythress
"Few in our day champion a vision of God that is as massive, magnificent, and biblical as John Frame's.
But I have never read a history of Western thought quite like John Frame's.
Professor Frame unabashedly tries to think through sources and movements out of the framework (bad pun intended) of deep-seated Christian commitments, and invites his readers to do the same.
These commitments, combined with the format of a seminary or college textbook, will make this work invaluable to students and pastors who tire of ostensible neutrality that is no more neutral than the next volume.
Agree or disagree with some of his arguments, but John Frame will teach you how to think in theological and philosophical categories."
