Selected Shorter Writings (Volume 2)


Warfield, Benjamin B. Used hardcover in very good condition. Completely unmarked. Like new except for two small bumps to cloth boards. Volume 2 only.

Out of stock


Many of Benjamin B. Warfield’s shorter and more popular-level writings failed to make it into either the 5-volume or the 10-volume set of his works. Selected Shorter Writings brings together 100 of these articles.

Many selections in this collections are less weighty and more practical than those in the larger sets. Volume 2 contains sermons, book reviews, introductions to books, articles published in encyclopedias or theological journals, and a small book, The Right of Systematic Theology. 

The articles often teach us something about Dr. Warfield as a man. They generally deal in a simpler and more popular way with subjects that concern us in our daily walk as Christians.
