Second To None Jun 12, 2008
Standing on the shoulders of the best theologians ever to appear in succession - the Hodges, BB Warfield, Geerhardus Vos and Cornelius Van Til - John Murray represents the pinnacle of theological achievement in the modern world. The incredible responsibility of continuing the role of world-renown Bible expositor and distinguished theologian, was humbly, yet fully demonstrated by John Murray. And therefore, in this reviewer's opinion, the most trustworthy and competent theology to ever appear would be this present volume. It is second to none.
Systematic theologians of the modern order, such as Millard Erickson, Robert L Reymond, and Wayne Grudem have extensively referred to and satisfyingly quoted from this masterpiece. It can simply not be outdone.
Most modern theologians have attempted and failed, and stand in sharp relief to Murray's convictions based on the plenary inspiration of Scripture, efficacious substitutionary death of Jesus, the Holy Spirit's comforting work, and the role of fallen man toward a holy and just God.
`While it makes void the gospel to introduce works in connection with justification, nevertheless works done in faith, from the motive of love to God, in obedience to the revealed will of God and to the end of His glory are intrinsically good and acceptable to God. As such they will be the criterion of reward in the life to come. This is apparent from passages as Matthew 10:41, 1 Cor 3:8-9, 11-15, 4:5; 2 Cor 5:10; 2 Tim 4:7. We must maintain therefore, justification complete and irrevocable by grace through faith and apart from works, and at the same time, future reward according to works...this future reward is not justification and contributes nothing to that which constitutes justification. This future reward is not salvation.' 2:221
`The fact that calling is an act of God, and of God alone, should impress upon us the divine monergism in the initiation of salvation in actual procession. We become partakers of redemption by an act of God that instates us in the realm of salvation, and all the corresponding changes in us and in our attitudes and reactions are the result of the saving forces at work within the realm into which, by God's sovereign and efficacious act, we have been ushered. The call, as that by which the predestinating purpose begins to take effect, is in this respect of divine monergism after the pattern of predestination itself. It is of God and God alone.' The Call, 2:166
`Here (adoption) we have the ultimate source and the highest privilege brought together.' 2:230
