Trueman, Christian Focus, 2000, 127 pages, 3 of 5 stars
Trueman picks on problems in the contemporary church and addresses how the Reformers could help us improve and think biblically.
He criticizes such ecclesiastical activities as testimonies in church, most evangelical choruses and obsessive talk about the Spirit while praising church actions like catechising, Christ-centered preaching, and extra care in distributing the Lord’s Supper.
Trueman wrote this book some time ago when he was in his late thirties. It was nice to see how one of today’s foremost historians learned to write and–while nothing he said was directly contrary to what he believes today–he has definitely grown in his ability to argue and write since then.
