Reviews - What do customers think about Introduction to the reformed tradition?

Solid Introduction to moderate neo-orthodox Reformed life  Mar 25, 2001
Dr. Leith was professor for many years at Union Theo. Sem. (VA). Before that he was pastor of some large Presbyterian (PCUS) churches in the South.

Interestingly, when he began teaching he was considered somewhat liberal in mainline Presbyterian circles. By the end of his career his theology had not changed but he was considered a little Right-of-Center in the PCUSA. This is testament to how far to the Left teh PCUSA has traveled in one generation.

Dr. Leith's book is a very fine introduction to a moderate neo-orthodox approach to the Reformed tradition. He's not an evangelical, nor classically orthodox, but he loves much of the Reformed tradition and has a breadth of knowledge unparalleled in PCUSA circles.

This is a good book, and should be in the library of every pastor or informed layperson.
