Fun-filled Trip on Truth Mar 17, 2010
Carl Trueman (a contributor to the "Dictionary of Historical Theology" & "The Cambridge Companion to Reformation Theology") didn't join the carnival; he became a writer of theology. Not much difference some say. In this chuckle-filled book Trueman delivers sideshows, strongmen, and games; complete with epistemic freaks, dimwits, featherheads, and irrational oddballs in this big-tent volume loaded with entertaining theological orthodox essays. Trueman's previous work was so unique and funny that it lead to this subsequent compilation of more humorous essays.
