Reformed Baptist Theological Review

Reformed Baptist Theological Review (RBTR [www.rbtr.org])

The purpose of the RBTR is to be an instrument for the theological advance of Reformed Baptist pastors, but also for the benefit of believers with differing theological commitments. RBTR seeks to present material in a scholarly, yet pastoral manner.

The goal is to present Reformed Baptist doctrine in all the branches of theology, with its practical outworking and application. With Scripture as the ultimate standard, therefore, RBTR functions within the theological framework of the 2nd LCF (1689 Baptist Confession of Faith).

RBTR has been publishing a theological journal since 2004. We are close to sending RBTR VI:2 to the printer. The articles and book reviews include the following:

1.      Judgment Begins at the House of God: A Theology of Malachi, Robert Gonzales Jr.

2.      The Relationship between the Decalogue, the Beatitudes, and the Fruit of the Spirit as Ethical Standards of Righteousness, John D. Reuther

3.      Analysis of Geerhardus Vos’ Nature and Method of Biblical Theology, Richard C. Barcellos

4.      Philosophy, Reason, and Righteousness in the Thought of Martin Luther, James E. Dolezal

5.      A Critical Review of Tim Keller’s The Reason for God, Samuel E. Waldron

Book reviews:

RBTR VII:1 is being edited and should be out early in 2011.. Some of the articles and book reviews for that issue include:
