    1 thought on “Warfield on the Christian Life: Living in Light of the Gospel”

    1. I’m no expert on B.B. Warfield. As a student in (un)seminary I read some Warfield-his treatment on inspiration, providence and the nature of theology. I also have read a decent chunk of Counterfeit Miracles. What I do know of Warfield was that he was the end of an era. He was the last defender of a broad consensus in Evangelical theology. As one of ‘Old Princeton,’ in the tradition of men like Archibald Alexander, C.H. Hodge and A.A. Hodge he was one of the great minds of 19th Century Evan [...]

    2. Theologians on the Christian LifeFirst of all, if all of the books in this series are as good as Warfield on the Christian Life we have a lot to look forward to. The series takes theologians who balanced doctrinally rich study with evangelical Christian living and presents them to us an approachable and devotional format. There was such depth to what Warfield said when he talked about topics ranging from the Holy Spirit to the work of Christ to our sanctification. So many pop evangelicals pit ev [...]

    3. Unlike the previous books I've read in this series (Luther, Wesley, Schaeffer) this book was very light on history of the man and very heavy on the theology and writings he left behind. I think in comparison to the other three this was clearly the right decision. The lives of the others were much more interesting in their ebbs and flows that lead them to their later works. For Warfield the story of his life was pretty simple but the content of what his life produced was astounding.The book draws [...]

    4. 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 [...]

    5. Very good read. Not as captivating as other books in the series.Good overview of basic doctrine and discourse on reasons for piety. Some amazing quotes too:"See us steeped in the sin of the world; loving evil for evil's sake, hating God and all that God stands fore Spirit follow us unwaveringly through all. He is not driven away because we are sinners. He comes to us because being sinners we need Him.he abides with us because our rejection of Him would leave us helpless. He does not condition Hi [...]

    6. Good overview of what the Christian life looks like in the writing and ministry of B.B. Warfield. That said, I read the book from this series on Francis Schaeffer and thought most people would be better served reading Schaeffer's True Spirituality, not because the book was bad simply because Schaeffer's book is more concise and its a primary source. Having not read much of Warfield, I wonder if I would feel the same about this book if I was moe conversant in his work.

    7. Warfield, perhaps best known for his stance on Biblical inerrancy, also contributed much in other areas as well. Here, Zaspel expertly provides an overview of Warfield’s works and gives us insight into what it means to be a follower of Jesus. This book serves as the debut entry in Crossway’s spectacular Theologians on the Christian Life and it stands as a timely, thorough gateway into Warfield’s biblically-infused thoughts on what it means to walk with Christ.

    8. I wanted to give this book 4.5 stars as 5 stars would indicate near perfection. This is simply a brilliant book that makes me want to read more Warfield. What stands out? Warfield's obvious love for God and the way he communicates that so richly. I love reading a book that exceeds my expectations. For Warfield, the Christian life grows in the soil of Christian truth.

    9. One of the first things I ever read about Warfield. This book was the kindle for the fire of my love of Warfield. Recommend to anyone who is new to Warfield and wants to get a basic overview of what made him so special.

    10. A great introduction to Warfield and his theology. In-depth enough to be meaty, and yet short enough to make you want to get more of Warfield and read him. The main thing that struck me was the deep delight in Christ that drove everything he did.Full of great theology. Many parts highlighted.
