Peter, I didn’t know there was going to be a test on the last day. And this is a bit of trick question, since we’ve learned there is no FV with no agenda (thus no canon of literature), just a loose association of conversationalists. That protest registered, I can say, off the top of my head, yours and DW’s blog, many of your books, Jordan’s Biblical Horizon newsletter, Credenda/Agenda, Backbone of the Bible, the Knox Symposium, and a few others, I’m sure. Oh, and I have read Guy Waters. You must admit that book has a great index.
Very good index, John, but not up to the one in Nevin. I’ve also read in most of the places where Muether has. Instead of Waters, the most sustained critique of FV I’ve read is the OPC report on Justification.
I began my Christian life in a Reformed church where I was fed a diet that included Rushdoony, Bahnsen, and Wilson. The first day at church the pastor gave me a copy of the RPC Constitution and back copies of Credenda Agenda.
I went to law school a Post-mill, theonomic, covenanter with a love for Chesterton, the Middle Ages, Christian culture, good food, good wine, ect.
My final year of law school my theological understanding began to change. Teaching on Proberbs and civil law I started my movement toward a natural approach to ethics. Reading Chesterton, ect. finally pushed me back to a deeper love for Russell Kirk, ect. From there my ethics had more Kirk than Rushdoony.
In Seminary, my world was rocked by two books. The Marrow of Modern Divinity, and Brakel’s Christian’s Reasonable Service. I was a Marrow-man and a lover of Scholasticism. The high church sentiments given me by the Credenda sent me to Hart, Muether, and Horton. I left behind the postmillenialism in favor a prudent Augustinianism.
To date, I have followed the discussion from the pages of Credenda Agenda, I have read all the NAPARC reports to date, I have read Shepherd’s theses and The Call of Grace. I read the material from Cal Beisner.
I must admit that my familiarity with you, Peter, is mostly through First Things, Credenda, and Touchstone. I almost always really appreciate that material.
Marrow – You should be ARP!
Hey – its okay, the RPCNA is already an A-RP church. And, Covenanters were never hyper Calvinists (maybe RUtherfurd said some stuff, but other wise). Free Offer men all here, I trust!
