Review of The Theology of B.B. Warfield

by | Oct 25, 2010 | Christian Living

The Theology of B.B. Warfield: A Systematic Summary is written by Fred G. Zaspel Pastor at Reformed Baptist Church in Fraconia, Pennsylvania. When I first heard about this book from Dr. Zaspel, I was excited because it appeared that it would be a helpful introduction to Warfield’s life and theology. As I read the book, I was not disappointed at all- in fact, I was quite impressed by the content and depth of Warfield thought.

Dr. Zaspel is correct in stating that Warfield was a voluminous author. Throughout the book, it becomes clear that the reputation Warfield has as a theologian is well-earned. In reading this book a few things stood out to me. First, Warfield loved the God of the Bible, and secondly his love for God motivated the work he did. Warfield’s evident love for Scripture and people challenged me. The goal of theology is not just to espouse what one knows but to help people. Warfield understands that theology should affect both the mind and the heart.  I recommend every Christian take the time to read this book by Dr. Zaspel and learn from Warfield. While you may not agree with everything Warfield said I believe you will be challenged to think through what you believe and why you believe it.  Dr. Zaspel has done an excellent service to the Church in this systematic summary of Warfield’s theology.
