The latest edition of Churchman is now on its way to subscribers.
In the Spring 2020 edition of Churchman, we are delighted to publish the winning entry from the Gerald Bray Essay Prize: An Inferior Cause: The Role of Works in Final Judgment Using Calvin’s Aristotelian Framework of Causation, with Special Reference to Romans 6:19-23, by Paul Young. Paul studied at Moore Theological College in Sydney, Australia and is now a pastor at Providence City Church in Perth, Australia. Professor Bray’s comment on Paul’s paper was that he “tackles a little known subject with great erudition and thoroughness.” We hope readers will agree!
The journal also includes an article on Martin Luther as educator, by Christopher Beckham and a discussion of soteriological speech acts, in which Andrew Hollingsworth considers what it means for justification to be understood as a divine performative act.
Peter Jensen’s editorial answers the question “Why I Am Still A Christian” after more than 60 years of faith, and numerous challenges to it along the way.
As always, there is a wide range of book reviews to help guide your reading choices.
More details of the articles in this issue can be found here.
