Upcoming Frame Books

I just read an interview that Marco Gonzalez from Reformation Theology did with John Frame. In this interview, John Frame gives some information about his upcoming books. I've known that the Doctrine of the Christian Life would soon be available because of conversations I've had with Keith Plummer. If you don't already own Frame's The Doctrine of the Knowledge of God and The Doctrine of God, then consider getting them. They are well worth reading. Here's a few details about Frame's upcoming books as reported on Reformation Theology:

9. What works can we expect from you in the future?

I have completed Doctrine of the Christian Life, the third volume of my Theology of Lordship series. I expect that book to be published in two volumes by P&R. At least the first volume should be available in 2006. Also in 2006 P&R is planning to publish my Salvation Belongs to the Lord, a mini-systematic theology. Now I’m working on Doctrine of the Word of God, the last volume planned for the Lordship series. That will take a lot of time to research and write. Don’t expect it before maybe three or four years.

Found you via my Sitemeter but I'm curious: as an evangelical Christian, do you agree with some of these right-wing talk show icons like O'Reilly and Coulter that Christmas is somehow under attack by liberals and Jews, etc?

I'm not being snarky. I just find it ironic that I found your site and as a pastor, I figured you'd be as good person as any to ask this question to.

Hi phillybits,

This seems like an odd question to ask in this particular post, but I will answer a few things.

I don't listen to O'Reilly or Coulter much, nor do I feel inclined to. Their opinions on some matters are no doubt true, but they are not the sort I care to hear from on a regular basis. O'Reilly seems arrogant and rude on his Fox show, and Coulter has said some outrageous things. However, at least they are being forthright and honest about what they think. That's not the case with the leftists. They're evasive, COWARDLY, delight in nuance, and are most hypocritical.

Nevertheless, I am sure most Liberals enjoy "Christmas" like most other Americans, in the sense that they enjoy getting together with people to exchange gifts, eat and converse. However, given what they think is a proper understanding of the "seperation of church and state," they end up undermining free religious speech in the public square and elsewhere. They are manifestly seeking to secularize our culture. They don't seem to respect or think that the generally theistic (I didn't say Christian theistic necessarily) traditions that gave birth to this nation are important to keep in place. They are under the illusion that they are religiously neutral, or that religious neutrality is possible in the public square. This is the underlying problem when it comes to the issue of Christmas and the Liberal secularists, as I see it. Also, the problem is theological or ideological, not racial. It's not a problem with Jewishness, but with an irrational secular ideology that ultimately seeks to suppress the truth in unrighteousness.

If you care to talk about this issue further, then feel free to send me an email (listed below my profile on the blog). This blog entry is not the proper context for a discussion like this.

What website are you referring to when you say you found me on the site meter?

Enjoyed the post. I've read one of Frame's book on open theism. Which was mostly arguments against libertarian free-will. But I did agree.
