Book Review: Trials of Theology

Trials of Theology, The: Becoming a 'proven worker' in a dangerous businessTrials of Theology, The: Becoming a 'proven worker' in a dangerous business by Andrew Cameron

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A brief book, which pull essays from men of the past and the present to address some dangers of theological study. It is primarily directed at students of theology who are in seminary or a similar setting. But it has much value for the pastor as well. I especially enjoyed Augustine's short letter about needing more time to study and pray, Warfield's essay on the religious life of theology students and Carson's essay on the dangers that come with studying the Bible. I still think Helmut Thielicke's book "A Little Exercise for Young Theologians" is a little bit better.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
