Good Preview of What's Hopefully Ahead  Oct 16, 2004
This book is a short series of lectures given by John Frame at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School back in the late '80s. Given Frame's intention in the (near?) future to produce a comprehensive Bibliology text (as well as a text on ethics) as part of his Theology of Lordship series, this short book can, I think, be considered a pretty good preview of what Frame is likely to present more exhaustively later.

For those who are versed in Frame's perspectival approach, this book will touch on many familiar themes. His 'control, authority, and presence' construction is applied to the 'Word of God' and the field of ethics in ways that I suspect will be quite edifying to many readers.

I think each of the three lectures offers important insights that evangelicals in particular should take note of. In his first lecture, he explains what he means by the 'Word of God' in ways that persuasively debunk the de minimus ideas that have unfortunately taken hold among certain sections of evangelicalism. The Word of God is not only the Bible itself, and I think Frame's analysis of this topic will prove enriching to evangelicals. His second lecture involves examining the 'media' of the Word. This lecture skillfully discusses the various ways (and various kinds of media) God uses to communicate to us. Those who have always wondered whether the words of Paul or the Old Testament prophets (or a modern day preacher for that matter) are as divinely authoritative as the words of Jesus Himself will find this lecture stimulating. The third lecture attempts to relate the Word of God to the field of ethics. His brief appraisal of secular ethics is penetrating and on the mark, while his Christian ethic is clearly informed by his perspectivalism.

I'm giving this book 4 stars for two basic reasons, one of which is probably unfair. First, I think the book title is a bit misleading, in that it claims to be an introduction to Christian ethics, yet only one of the three lectures is specifically devoted to discussing ethics. Now of course, those who are familiar with Frame's perspectivalism will likely say that ethics is not an isolated discipline, and that all three lectures in Frame's scheme necessarily touch upon ethics. I suppose that's right, but the average reader picking up this short book will likely not understand that right away, if at all. Secondly, as I mentioned before, this book is likely a foretaste of what's to come in two of Frame's remaining Lordship series books. As such, this book begs for a comprehensive and rounded out presentation of the issues that it begins to touch upon.

In summary, this is a good book that provides the reader with a gentle introduction to Frame's theological approach, which I consider to be very helpful. It is hoped by this reader (and student) that Frame will further edify the church by expanding upon the concepts touched upon here in published form in the near future as God permits.
