An American Augustinian
Sin and Salvation in the Dogmatic Theology of William G. T. Shedd
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"This book is no mere exercise in intellectual archaeology, for Crisp admirably draws out the implications of Shedd's thought for the contemporary debate on the crucial subjects of sin and salvation. Crisp represents Shedd's positions accurately and sympathetically, even when Crisp himself would develop the argument differently. I highly recommend this fine piece of philosophical theology (or, if one prefers, theological philosophy) and can only hope that it will stimulate renewed interest in Shedd--not only as an eminent theologian of great historical import, but as one who will now speak to the present generation."
--Alan W. Gomes, Talbot School of Theology
"Oliver Crisp convincingly shows that William G. T. Shedd was a reformed theologian whose dogmatics has a philosophical dimension which merits serious attention. In doing so he reveals the same intellectual qualities in evidence in his books on Jonathan Edwards and on Christology: philosophical clarity and rigour, theological sensitivity, and excellent judgement."
--Paul Helm, King's College, London
"Shedd possessed one of the greatest dogmatic minds of post-Reformation Protestantism, and this book will do much to commend him to a new readership. Written with Crisp's characteristic acumen and sense of the scope and material cohesion of Christian doctrine, it will be read with great profit by students of historical and systematic theology."
