Douglas Kelly’s next installment

2013/12/17

The second volume of a projected three volume Systematic Theology is on its way. Those who enjoyed the first volume are doubtless anticipating this publication. Kelly’s newest may be the most important contribution to Reformed systematic theology in 2013-2014, even with Michael Bird and John Frame releasing one volume systematics texts late this year.

I remember reading a review of the first volume that complained about the arrangement of the text, particularly the inclusion of appendices with each main chapter. My feeling was that this added some interest to the flow of the argument. Indeed, Kelly’s numerous focused appendices work well as applications of the principles of the main chapters. It also provides the opportunity to address special topics with greater freedom than one possibly could in the general body of argument. I look forward to see how the method applied in the first volume works itself out in the second.
