When Problems Glare

Sharing Options

He may not be thrilled with this commendation, but in a recent journal article (Mid-America Journal of Theology), Alan Strange has an outstanding review of Gordon Clark’s What Is Saving Faith?

He praises where praise is due, and points out glaring problems where said problems glare. And as Strange notes several times in the article, the nature of saving faith is a “significant factor in the current debates about justification.”

And the question that this review article raises is this: What on earth are Clarkians (like John Robbins) doing in the forefront of “defending” traditional Reformed orthodoxy on this subject when their position necessarily involves a rejection of traditional Reformed orthodoxy on this subject? Is saving faith really intellectual assent to propositions?
