My Awesome Wife At Christmas

My awesome wife got me Richard Muller’s Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics for Christmas!  Now, my wife isn’t awesome because she got me these volumes.  It’s because she is awesome in more ways than I can count that she got them for me!  What a great gift.

For those not familiar with this set here’s the description from Monergism Books which still has them for the great price of only $79.

Description: Contending that the theology of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries is often misrepresented in church histories and scholarly treatments, Richard Muller has undertaken this exhaustive study of specific doctrines to demonstrate how doctrine developed in the early Protestant period.

Volume one, Prolegomena to Theology, introduces the study of Protestant scholasticism. Muller defines theology and religion and discusses several aspects of theology as they were understood in the post-Reformation era, including its divisions, object and genus, and fundamental principles.

Volume two, Holy Scripture, examines post-Reformation understandings of Scripture as the word of God, its divinity, its properties, the integrity of the canon, and its interpretation.

Volume three, The Divine Essence and Attributes, examines post-Reformation theology on the unity of God’s existence, God’s divine essence and attributes, and divine will. Included is an analysis of the doctrine of God from the twelfth to the early eighteenth century.

Volume four, The Triunity of God, examines the doctrine of the Trinity, including unity and distinction in the Trinity as they were understood in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and addresses the deity and person of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

John W. Tweeddale has written a good review of this set. Check it out – Review: Post-Reformation Reformed Dogmatics by Richard A. Muller.

Yeah…I love my wife!

How sweet 🙂

Speaking as a husband who also has a wife who buys him books for Christmas (Christless Christianity and two of Piper’s), I can say that the appreciation for the support given by a wife to her husband who desires the things of God cannot be overstated.

Grace and Peace…
