Richard P Belcher. Prophet, Priest, and King: The Roles of Christ in the Bible and Our Roles Today.  Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing, September 30th, 2016. 224 pp.

5 out of 5

While the theme of Christ being Prophet, Priest and King has been much discussed in systematic theology the author made a good point that there hasn’t been the exploration of these motifs through the discipline of biblical theology; that is, there has not been the exploration of these offices’ as it developed through the unfolding of redemptive history that eventually anticipate and find its fulfillment in Christ.  This book is an attempt to fill in the gap.  I think the book accomplishes its aim of fulfilling this need.  The author was able to do this in such a way that was spiritually enriching, practical and gives readers a greater appreciation for the wisdom of God found in the Scriptures.

reformation-yesterday-today-and-tomorrow

Carl Trueman. Reformation: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow.  Ross-Shire, UK: Christian Focus Publications, May 20th, 2011. 127 pp.

Rating: 4 out of 5

The author Carl Trueman is the professor of historical theology at Westminster Theological Seminary although he authored this work originally back in 1999 before he was a professor at Westminister.  At that time Trueman was the Senior Lecturer in Church History at University of Aberdeen in which he confesses was written in haste so that it can be delivered at a conference in Wales for the Evangelical Theological College.  Trueman.  In the book’s forward Trueman tells us that he is delighted to find that he agrees with the book even though he originally wrote the book before his 40s and now he is older and mature.  This book is not a history book per se about the reformation as it is about the heritage of the Reformation having its impact and importance for today and the future.
