Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
From the review of Michael Patrick Preciado’s Pickwick volume, A Reformed View of Freedom: The Compatibility of Guidance Control and Reformed Theology: “Preciado has done a great service to the Reformed philosophical and theological community. Besides clearing the Reformed Orthodox’s and Edwards’s respective positions from some important misreadings, this book also offers a good model of sound philosophy that is both respectful of historical, intellectual, and textual contexts and able to abide to constructively contrast and compare terminology and concepts of past and present.” For the full review, visit the PRTS blog.
Indonesian Journal of Theology & Australasian Pentecostal Studies
