CARL TRUEMAN

Theological essays are dusty, humourless affairs aren’t they? Well, they don’t have to be! This is the second collection of essays by Carl Trueman. His first collection was received with enthusiasm. This time Chick Lit, Adolf Eichman, the i-pod, Francis J. Beckwith, the Blues, Watership Down, American Idol, Nietzsche, zen-calvinism, Augustine and ferrets(!) all get a mention.

If you want to inform your mind and chuckle at the same time – Carl’s your man!

 

Review

“There is a growing company of Presbyterian prophets writing these days, but Carl Trueman is the only one who is clearly enjoying himself. Minority Report is a heady blend – at its most playful when in dead earnest, effortlessly displaying its street cred when dismissing popular culture, and invaluably thought-provoking when probably wrongheaded. This is a learned, urbane, witty, and timely book in the service of orthodox Protestant thought.”

Timothy Larsen ~ McManis Professor of Christian Thought, Wheaton College, Wheaton, Illinois

“Shows the author as a master wordsmith – It will challenge, stimulate, inform and teach. It confirms Trueman’s place as one of contemporary evangelicalism’s most dynamic young theologians.”

Iain D. Campbell ~ Minister, Point Free Church of Scotland, Isle of Lewis

“Affirms the historic evangelical faith with great force, clarity and excellent judgement.”

Paul Helm ~ Teaching Fellow, Regent College, Vancouver, Canada

“I cannot think of a young evangelical writer and theologian whose works I more eagerly read.”

Mark Dever ~ Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President, 9Marks.org, Washington, DC

“The wit of an evangelical Chesterton, prophetic insight of Francis Schaeffer and the accessibility of John Stott.”

Melvin Tinker ~ Vicar of St John’s Newland, Kingston upon Hull, England
