BOOKS AND DISSERTATIONS

from

PACKER TO TURRETIN

*Packer, James I. God Has Spoken. Downers Grove, III.: InterVarsity Press, 1979.

Pleasant, informative reading stresses the joy of Bible study, and urges Christians to examine what Scripture has to say about itself, unadorned by contemporary trappings. Underscores the danger of critical views of Scripture impoverishing Bible students. Appendix includes the 1978 Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy.

Patton, Francis L. The Inspiration of the Scriptures. Philidelphia: Presbyterian Board of Publications, 1869.

Pink, Arthur W. The Divine Inspiration of the Bible. Swengel, Pa.: Reiner, 1971. Lacking depth.

Pink, Arthur W. The Doctrine of Revelation. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1975.

Popular biblical exposition; conservative perspective, but lacking reputable exegesis at times.

Pinnock, Clark H. Biblical Revelation: The Foundation of Christian Theology. Chicago: Moody Press, 1971.

An evaluation of contemporary religious philosophies conjoined with an analysis of modern concepts of inspiration.

Pinnock, Clark H. A Defense of Biblical Infallibility. Philadelphia: Presbyterian and Reformed, 1967.

The Tyndale Lecture in Biblical Theology at Cambridge (1966) aimed at answering the charge of liberalism and neoorthodoxy that the affirmation of infallibility by evangelicalism is irrelevent.

Polman, A.D.R. The Word of God According to St Augustine. Translated by A.J. Pomerans. Grand Rapids: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1961.

Discusses the Word of God in Augustine: (1) as Christ, (2) as Holy Scripture, (3) as the Word of Christ, (4) as proclamation, and relates these usages to (5) the church and (6) spiritual life.

Preus, Robert. The Inspiration of Scripture. 2nd ed. Edinburgh: Oliver and Boyd, 1957.

A monograph on the theology of the seventeenth-century Lutheran dogmaticians.

Preus, Robert. The Theology of Post-Reformation Lutheranism: A Study of Theological Prolegomena. St. Louis: Concordia, 1970.

A valuable historical study discussing prolegomena (pp. 72-253) and the doctrine of Scripture (pp. 254-403).

*Radmacher, Earl D., and Preus, Robert D. Hermeneutics, Inerrancy, and the Bible. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1984.

Competent papers and responses from ICBI Summit II. Authors of papers include Waltke, Poythress, Klooster, Corduan, Krabbendam, Erickson, Davis, Nicole, Helm, et al.

Ramm, Bernard. The Pattern of Authority. Grand Rapids: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1957.

Addresses issues on authority which confront the conservative evangelical position; in particular, distinguishes between the “grounds of accepting an authority” and “the right of authority.” Claims that reason, intuition, or inclination are modes of perceiving or receiving an authority, but do not constitute the right of the authority received. Further, Ramm argues that the believer’s doctrine of authority in the New Testament dispensation is threefold: the authority of the Scriptures, of the Holy Spirit, and of Christ. This threefold delineation is contrasted with Roman Catholicism, modernism and neoorthodoxy.

Ramm, Bernard. Protestant Biblical Interpretation. Boston: W.A. Wilde, 1956.

A helpful, standard text.

*Ramm, Bernard. Special Revelation and the Word of God. Grand Rapids: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1961.

An attempt to retain in tandem the redemptive and cognitive aspects of special revelation.

tReid, J.K.S. The Authority of the Scriptures: A Study of the Reformation and Post-Reformation Understanding of the Bible. New York: Harper, 1957.

Slanting towards neoorthodoxy, Reid erroneously argues that Luther and Calvin did not adhere to strict verbal inspiration.

†Rogers, Jack Bartlett. Scripture in the Westminster Confession: A Problem of Historical Interpretation for American Presbyterianism. Kampen: J.H. Kok, 1966.

Rogers’s doctoral dissertation completed at the Free University at Amsterdam; establishes the questionable mode of interpretation utilized in his more renowned, co-authored, The Authority and Interpretation of the Bible: An Historical Approach. Rogers posits that “the interpretation of the doctrine of Scripture by the Princeton Theology may not be considered a valid interpretation of that same doctrine as developed by the Westminster Divine” (p. 479).

†Rogers, Jack Bartlett, ed. Biblical Authority. Waco, Tx.: Word Books, 1977.

Essays by Rogers, Pinnock, Mickelson, Ramm, Palmer, and Hubbard.

†Rogers, Jack B., and McKim, Donald K. The Authority and Interpretation of the Bible: An Historical Approach. San Francisco: Harper & Row, 1979.

The most influential recent expression of the “limited inerrancy” position in American evangelicalism. Un-even quality abounds. Relies too fully on secondary sources (e.g., sections on Zanchius and Turretin), and contains a number of historical flaws. Also, frequently builds too much on subjective interpretations, (e.g., Calvin’s principle of accommodation which is viewed as providing allowance for maintaining that the Reformer did not believe in verbal-plenary inspiration — contra Klooster’s well-balanced article). Reveals blatant opposition to the “old Princeton” doctrine of Scripture—often unnecessarily so, which mars the integrity of the work. )ohn Woodbridge’s response ought to be read in tandem.

†Runia, Klaas. Karl Barth’s Doctrine of Holy Scripture. Grand Rapids: Wm. B. Eerdmans, 1962.

A careful criticism of Barth’s erroneous view of Scripture from a Reformed perspective.

†Smith, Henry P., and Evans, Llewelyn J. Biblical Scholarship and Inspiration. Cincinatti: Clarke, 1891.

Smith entered into a controversy over inerrancy in the 1890s in the Presbyterian church, and maintained throughout that there are “minor errors” in Scripture.

*Sproul, R.C. Explaining Inerrancy: A Commentary. Oakland, Calif.: International Council on Biblical Inerrancy, 1980.

*Stonehouse, N.B., and Woolley, Paul, eds. The Infallible Word: A Symposium by the Members of the Faculty of Westminster Theological Seminary. Presbyterian and Reformed, 1946. Excellent series of essays dealing with the general character of Biblical authority, containing a chapter on the canonicity of the Scriptures, and concluding with an emphasis upon their relevancy, place in preaching, and distinctive characteristics.

*Tenney, Merrill Chapin, ed. The Bible: The Living Word of Revelation. Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1968.

Ten essays by Evangelical Theological Society members, the bulk of which stress aspects of the doctrine of revelation, the mode of divine communication, and/or ramifications of inerrancy. Essayists are Tenney, Packer, Kantzer, Harris, Young, Woudstra, Pinnock, Cerstner, Walvoord, and Montgomery.

*Tenney, Merrill Chapin, ed. The Word for This Century. New York: Oxford University Press, 1960.

Note especially Kenneth Kantzer’s superior essay, “The Authority of the Bible” (pp. 21-51).

Turretin, Francis. The Doctrine of Scripture: Locus 2 of “Institutio theologieae elencticae.”

Edited and translated by John W. Beardslee III. Grand Rapids: Baker, 1981.

Important translation; Turretin’s Institutio theologiae elencticae (3 vol., Geneva, 1679-85) was primary text at Princeton until the publication of Charles Hodge’s Systematic Theology.

Questions on religious books may be addressed to 2115 Romence St. N.E., Grand Rapids, Michigan 49503.
