The Rule of Love

The Christ the Center panel had the pleasure of revisiting Rev. Dr. John Fesko, now the academic dean and associate professor of systematic theology at Westminster Seminary California, abut his new Reformation Heritage Books volume, The Rule of Love: Broken, Fulfilled, and Applied. Fesko explains how the Christian is to understand and appropriate the Ten Commandments. The role of the law in the history of redemption as well as its place in redemption’s application is discussed. At the end of the day, Christ is the lens through which we are to read and contemplate the law.

The Reformed Doctrine of Justification

Dr. John Valero Fesko, pastor of Geneva OPC of Woodstock, GA and adjunct professor of theology at RTS/Atlanta, joins the panel of Christ the Center to discuss his latest book, Justification: Understanding the Classic Reformed Doctrine recently published by our good friends at Presbyterian & Reformed Publishing. Dr. Fesko, is the author of several journal and magazine articles and books, including Diversity Within the Reformed Tradition, Last Things First, a chapter in Resurrection & Eschatology, and he serves as co-editor with Bryan Estelle and David VanDrunen of The Law is Not of Faith. Rumor has it that he is also author of a forthcoming tome on baptism. Dr. Fesko is concerned to offer a single place where readers can find a thorough treatment of justification that is both redemptive-historical and systematic theological. The CTC panel interacted with Dr. Fesko about his aims for writing and about the contemporary context into which he wishes to speak. Dr. Fesko also recently served on the OPC study committee on the doctrine of justification. We welcome listeners to join us in a discussion of this extremely important topic. (more…)
