The Whole Counsel of God Volume 3, : God's People in the Western World HB
|Publisher||Presbyterian and Reformed|
Richard Gamble's three-volume Whole Counsel of God explores the relationships between exegesis and hermeneutics and between biblical, systematic, and historical theology for the glory of God and the enrichment of his church. Having closely studied the Old and New Testaments in his first two volumes, Gamble turns to examine how the church has handled God's holy Word throughout two thousand years of unfolding history in the West. In continuity with the rest of this work, the final installment presents a study of apologetics as well as practical application--integral parts of the whole counsel of God. Readers will follow the development of systematic theology in its context and, learning from the church's past mistakes, be better able to defend it to the world. Detailed and well organized, volume three of Whole Counsel of God is packed with instruction on the history of theology, on church anthropology, and on notable Christians throughout history. The breadth and depth of the information this book provides make it an excellent reference source for any classroom, library, or office.
