Speaking the Truth in Love: The Theology of John M. Frame is a festschrift honoring Professor Frame’s career in seminary teaching and publishing.

Unlike many festschrifts, this book does not merely collect essays on subjects of interest to the honoree. Rather, it analyzes Frame’s own work in the fields of theology, apologetics, ethics, worship, the church, and other areas. Containing some forty articles, it is one of the largest festschrifts ever published. The authors have worked in numerous fields and are familiar with Frame’s work; many are Frame’s former students and colleagues.

This is the first large-scale analysis of Frame’s distinctive approach to theology. The essays go into considerable depth, comparing Frame’s conceptual approach with the approaches of others and even applying his ideas to various fields beyond those that he has explored. 


“There are few, past or present, whom I would place . . . ahead of Professor Frame. . . . He has been privileged to make a strategic and potentially huge contribution to the future well-being . . . of the entire evangelical world.”

—J. I. Packer, Board of Governors Professor of Theology, Regent College

“What is refreshing is his ability to model a firm stance on truth with a heartfelt affection for people. Razor-sharp reason is used to carve error away from truth, not skin off adversaries.”

—John Piper, Pastor for Preaching and Vision, Bethlehem Baptist Church

“If Frame writes it, I read it, not because I always find myself in perfect agreement, but because he teaches me.”

—D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“My entire Bible-centered approach to all I have written on theology and ethics . . . owes much to Frame’s example and the convictions he instilled in me in his classes.”

—Wayne Grudem, Research Professor of Bible and Theology, Phoenix Seminary

“John Frame has served the church as a teacher par excellence. . . . He has distinguished himself in the fields of theology, apologetics, philosophy, and Christian ethics.”

—R. C. Sproul, Founder and Chairman, Ligonier Ministries

“It is hard to imagine an area of theological study that has not been impacted by John’s work in some way.”

—Bryan Chapell, Professor of Homiletics and President, Covenant Theological Seminary
