John Frame's Selected Shorter Writings Volume 1ISBN: 9781596387317
Short, pointed essays summarize some of John Frame's central (and a few peripheral) ideas on theological method, apologetics, and ethics, beginning with Frame's shortest and clearest presentation of his signature concept of triperspectivalism-the need to read Scripture from various perspectives, especially threefold perspectives that reflect the nature of the Trinity.

John M. Frame (AB, Princeton University; BD, Westminster Theological Seminary; MA and MPhil, Yale University; DD, Belhaven College) holds the J. D. Trimble Chair of Systematic Theology and Philosophy at Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando and is the author of many books, including the four-volume Theology of Lordship series.
"Before the book was published, most of these rare theological, philosophical, and practical gems had been hidden away in Frame's electronic files or posted on websites and blogs not widely known to the public. Do yourself a favor and mine the rich truths in these winsome and provocative essays (written in Frame's inimitable style of robust charity) on a wide array of important topics."
--Steven L. Childers, President and CEO, Global Church Advancement
"A veritable cornucopia of Frame's theology…Frame is not afraid to slay sacred cows…if he believes they don't pass biblical muster. Whether you have never read Frame before or have read all that he's written to date, this book will inform, intrigue, encourage, edify, rouse, and convict you."
--P. Andrew Sandlin, President, Center for Cultural Leadership
