One of the men that have been influential in shaping my Christian thought life is John Frame.  Reading his work has been a delight and an experience of worship of God for His wisdom, glory and splendor.  His writings has helped me to think more clearly, biblically, and logically.  Since this is God’s World that we live in I think what I got the most from John Frame than other theologians is the hunger to see the beauty of the inter-relationship of…everything.  Doctrines relate to other doctrines.  Areas of philosophies need and presuppose other areas of philosophy.  There’s inter-relationships of academic disciplines.  There’s a relationship between theology and life.  Its like a symphony; they all go together in harmony because of God’s Wisdom.  There’s an apologetic there with the beautiful coherence of the Christian worldview, of God’s revelation between the Word and World.  Which is one of the aesthetically pleasing aspect of a robust Presuppositional apologetics.  But its more than an apologetics, it has made me live my life seeing living colors of God’s World.

What follows below are all four volumes of John Frame’s Theology of Lordship with links to my reviews that explains further why I recommend them.  I bought one volume at a time as a young seminarian without a lot of money, with the goal that after graduating I would be able to read them.  Then I slowly read 5-10 pages a day every morning and finished it.  They are doctrinal yet devotional, deep but “do-able,” deals with difficult topics but also demonstrate the deep dive of doctrines we see as more simple.
