About-

This succinct volume consists of three lectures examining the nature, media, and application of God's word. With the insight and care that have come to typify his writing, John M. Frame develops fresh applications of ideas set forth in his acclaimed work The Doctrine of the Knowledge of God. In addition, he offers a preview of (and invites feedback on) the central theses to be discussed in two forthcoming volumes in his Theology of Lordship series - The Doctrine of the Word of God and The Doctrine of the Christian Life. Those looking for a concise presentation of Frame's "Perspectival" approach will also find it here. Topics include:
