Read full description of the books:John Frame does an excellent job on this first book in his Systematic Series. The Doctrine of the Knowledge of God deals relatively thoroughly with the paradoxes and conflict that has often risen between reformed theologians. He provides a system that stays incredibly consistent and balanced. He focuses on the relationship between the rational, existential and situational perspectives that goes into every thought. He addresses the Clark vs Van Til controversy briefly and adds his own thoughts about the terms quantitative and qualitative.
One of the most beneficial concept I learned while reading this book was the complexity and inter-connectivity of the three perspectives in theology, thought and communication.
My only criticism was that this volume didn't have a section that thoroughly addressed (even in passing) the Christians presupposition of scripture as the authoritative standard. Leaving the connections in his criticisms of other authoritative systems very loose. I am sure this will be addressed in his other volumes and this criticism would be only of this one book.
Readability: 9/10 technical only in sections, overall very easy and accessible. Having a brief background in philosophy and in recent reformed theologians would be beneficial coming into this book.
Read information about the authorFor his education, Frame received degrees from Princeton University (A.B.), Westminster Theological Seminary (B.D.), Yale University (A.M. and M.Phil., though he was working on a doctorate and admits his own failure to complete his dissertation), and Belhaven College (D.D.). He has served on the faculty of Westminster Theological Seminary and was a founding faculty member of their California campus. He currently (as of 2005) teaches Apologetics and The History of Philosophy and Christian thought at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, FL. He is appreciated, by many of his students, for his charitable spirit and fairness to opposing arguments.
