I finally finished Dr. McCune’s final volume of his theology. This volume covers Salvation, the Church, and Last Things. The great thing about reading McCune in any subject is his unwavering adherence to a fundamental, dispensational, pretribulational and premillennial point of view. That combination is almost unheard of these days. Dr. McCune carries a heavy Calvinistic view toward our salvation, but nothing that should deter anyone from reading and learning greatly from this section. His section on the church is very refreshing as he defends Baptist ecclesiology, including the singularity of leadership as opposed to a plurality of elders. His discussions on the ordinances are very helpful as well. Lastly, I couldn’t say enough for Dr. McCune’s eschatology. Since I sat in his classes as a student, through reading his words again, I have always been greatly rewarded.
