I had not read Trueman in book form before this. I enjoyed it and found him (a British professor and author) to be conservative and to the point. To the contemporary evangelical scene he says, “A movement that cannot or will not draw boundaries, or that allows the modern cultural fear of exclusion to set its theological agenda, is doomed to lose its doctrinal identity. Once it does, it will drift from whatever moorings it may have had in historic Christianity.” This book is mainly a defense of Luther’s cross theology. It is a good reminder of what the real issues of the Reformation were.
