I had heard of B.B. Warfield before but didn’t really know much about him. After reading this book, I’ve learned much more of who he was and what he stood for. Warfield lived from 1851 to 1921 and is known for his stand on the inspiration of Scripture. He lived in a day where the Bible’s inspiration was being challenged and he defended it as being the inspired Word of God. But Warfield taught and wrote much more than just the Bible’s inspiration. This book takes us through what Warfield taught on the many doctrines of the Christian faith.
So much of this book resonated with me and what I already believe. Warfield put into words so many great truths. I found much that I wanted to quote from this book. Warfield not only defended the inspiration of Scripture but its authority. The book also takes us through what he taught on the gospel, our salvation, who Christ is, the Holy Spirit, sanctification and other doctrines important to understanding a life of faith. Warfield wrote prolifically and I am now interested in reading some of his writings after reading this book. Monergism has some of the books he wrote free as ebooks.
For an overview of what Warfield taught, as well as a good reminder of what the gospel is and how it affects our daily lives, this book is a great read. Recommended for encouragement in the Christian walk.
