About-

This book deals with a key question every pastor faces nearly every week in preparing sermons. That question concerns the appropriate manner of treating the historical material of the Scriptures. In the history of the Christian Church this material has often served as the basis for "moral lessons" or "intellectual truths." This study presents a careful analysis of the way in which this age-old controversy surfaced in the revival of redemptive-historical theology in the Reformed churches in Holland between the two world wars. It also presents the basis for a fresh approach and is thus exceedingly helpful for both pastors and students.
