Carl Trueman's I ♥ Biblical Theology


"if Lloyd Jones led the revolution which placed preaching back at the centre of British evangelicalism, the biblical theology movement has led the second revolution which has put careful attention to Christ-centred exegesis back at the centre of preaching."
(The Wages of Spin, p171 - A revolutionary balancing act)

"No-one should be allowed within a million miles of a pulpit who does not have a proper respect for biblical theology in terms of the overall story of redemptive history, a firm greasp of the importance of systematic theology, creeds and confession and a critical handle of contemporary culture."
(The Wages of Spin, p185)

Thanks, we advertised this here: Theology for all conference

A little one sided here bluefish- I think Trueman is making the point that biblical theology in conjunction with ST and creeds is healthy. By implication, I think he would feel BT on its own probably is not too healthy. Thoughts

Jim - I entirely agree. We need the best of both.
