Risking the Truth

Martin Downes is one of my favorite writers. He writes daily at Against Heresies. Sometime back he did a series of interviews with several theologians/historians. That collection, Risking the Truth, is to appear this March. It features interviews with Mark Dever, Carl Trueman, Mike Horton, Tom Schreiner, Scott Clark, Ligon Duncan, Derek Thomas, Kim Riddlebarger and others.  Sinclair Ferguson wrote the foreword.

Michael Haykin writes,

“What a novel way to approach this most vital of subjects! Given that theological reflection is human thought about the Scriptural revelation of a tri-personal God, I have always believed that the personal element has a place in all of our theologizing. The subjective should not—indeed cannot—be removed from theology. And here we see the way that some of the most important theological minds of our day personally grapple with how truth is to be defended. This mesh of subjectivity and Christian apologetics—in which objectivity is so vital—makes for both compelling and profoundly instructive reading.”

Robert Letham writes:

“This collection is fascinating, sobering and encouraging. It presents an impressive range of experience and wisdom on the challenges facing the church and its ministry in dealing with false teaching while being sensitive to those affected by it.
