John Frame’s Selected Shorter Writings, Volume 3 includes more than thirty short, pointed essays, sermons, and addresses that summarize some of John Frame’s central (and sometimes peripheral!) ideas about the nature and method of theology, theological issues, epistemology, apologetics, the church, and ethics. Part 1 includes “Machen’s Warrior Children,” Frame’s insightful treatment of twenty-one intramural battles within the Reformed camp from 1935 to the present. Other essays introduce clarifications of theological concepts, intended to resolve or alleviate conflicts in the church, on topics such as biblical inerrancy, Open Theism, law and gospel, and the roles of grace and law in sanctification. There are also essays about Biblicism, presuppositionalism, apologetics, the regulative principle, and contemporary worship music.


“John Frame is certainly one of those ‘dangerous theologians.’ Of course, that means he is mild and loving, even as he confronts error boldly and builds the necessary biblical-theological frameworks for our times. He covers many important topics with our necessary standards for accounting (cf. Heb. 4:12–13). We see more of the sea lanes traversed as he pursues that Great White Whale of biblical truth applied!”

—Andrew J. Peterson, President, Reformed Theological Seminary, Global Education

“In comparison with the ‘feast’ of John Frame’s major works, these are the ‘nuggets.’ They still offer vintage Frame, and I heartily recommend them ?for their wisdom, balance, and incisiveness. Some have a more personal, informal tone and will usefully complement Frame’s major writings, especially for those who want to understand the connection of his writings to the person behind them.”

—Vern S. Poythress, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Westminster Theological Seminary; Editor, Westminster Theological Journal

“A veritable cornucopia of Frame’s theology. . . . Frame is not afraid to slay sacred cows . . . if he believes they don’t pass biblical muster. Whether you have never read Frame before or have read all that he’s written to date, this book will inform, intrigue, encourage, edify, rouse, and convict you.”

—P. Andrew Sandlin, President, Center for Cultural Leadership
