What a remarkable work!!!!!

What a remarkable work... just the labor to record its massive content is mindboggling, to say nothing of the years and year of careful thought that obviously went into its creation. As I have come to expect (and respect) from a reformed teacher, this writer’s logic is impeccable from that perspective. And I love it as such.

And so, if you are looking for a comprehensive survey of the faith... this is that. Also, I love the index of topics. You can pick and choose a subject of interest, a feature lacking in many audiobooks. Add to that the fact of a PDF book as part of the deal... and wow. To date, this is my favorite audiobook. Such an unexpected pleasure. Well done! Thank you John Frame!

Best systematic theology books out there.

Best systematic theology books out there. I read 60 to 70 theology books per year. I loved this book. Good for pastors or those that want to dive deeper but still was to understand.

My favorite ST and Guide to biblical epistemology, ethics and teleology

Magnificent and life- changing! Teaches you how to fish so you can feed yourself for a lifetime and multiply self-feeding, self-leading, self-multiplying disciples of Christ who find their place in God’s story and their role in God’s mission through Christ-exalting churches.

Focuses on God's Lordship

This is a very readable systematic theology that discusses many important issues that are relevant to us today. The focus on God's Lordship was insightful and refreshing. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

A Very Silly Book

In the opening chapter the author airs his great annoyance that liberal universities these days have the audacity to teach their students to approach biblical studies with an open mind. This, then, might fairly be considered "the closed minded" interpretation of the bible.

There follows an immense amount of cross referencing in which the author, to support his own views, sites numerous texts including many that the academic world near universally considers to be forgeries (Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus and others). The author won't tell you that the books he wants to site are probably forgeries though. Presumably he doesn't want to encourage and of that open-mindedness he finds so unsettling.

You're much better off buying something by Bart Ehrman, finding Dale B. Martin's lectures on the internet, or downloading anything in The Great Courses lecture series on audible.

The incoherence of an honest man

John Frame deeply amuses me it must be said, in some ways he's the very picture of an 'ivory tower' professor enjoying the sweetness of his thoughts without any necessary relation to reason and reason's truth - the heir of the Reformation indeed.
A selection of quotes :
'God sometimes permits people to be deceived by the counterfeits.' This when said of Allah is a reason for every Christian to distrust any who profess that Prophet's religion.
'And if God is personal, and God is one, then surely in a sense he is one person.'
'When we speak of God as a person, or as personal, we are using person in a different sense from its Trinitarian use.' Precisely why the rational human, that person God addresses in Isaiah when he urges that 'we reason together' will always treat the Trinity worshipper with deep suspicion as he freely admits such will change the meaning of a word to suit their purpose rather than the truth.
'We know that the false revelation is false, just as we know that the true revelation is true—by God’s sovereign self-testimony.'
'But God made our minds to think in line with his word, not some other authority.'
Having admitted quite happily that he and his cronies will use words how they see fit he now tries to sell the snake oil that his crowd are being biblical but how can such be possible given the shifting sand of his epistemology? The God who claims that he stretched out the heavens by himself is actually not himself but a divine society ontologically.
'Throughout the hierarchy the words are God’s. Indeed,... Moses is called “God.” He functions as God because he gives God’s words to Aaron, his prophet. There is no decrease in authority between God himself, Moses (Aaron’s God), and Aaron. Moses and Aaron have the authority of God because they speak God’s words.' How the rational mind would ask is this different to Jesus' claim that his words were not his but the Father's who sent him, from his claim that God has given him as the perfect man the authority to forgive sins on earth which is then attested by the witness of God healing the man at Jesus' word. There's no difference the rational mind concludes. As Frame insists. 'So the prophet is a divinely approved substitute for the divine voice itself.'
One could go on but there's no point, if you wish to walk the reformed line and parrot fatuous arguments the book will be a great introduction, if you're hoping to hear that liberating word then maybe the search continues. Certainly to my mind any theology that is still waiting for Jesus to return is blatantly denying the scripture's own assertion as to the time of his return.

A reformed intro to Christian theology

Well read. Although at 50hrs this better suited to a physical reference book to consult individual sections than listening to the whole audiobook (for instance the proof texting, listing of scripture references doesn't lend itself to an audiobook). Lots of good insights a Christian from any tradition should be able to appreciate. That being said Frame didn't always seem fair in representing other views. For instance, in his definition of libertarian freewill (see the Standford encyclopaedia for a fair treatment). Nevertheless, Frame has put a lot of good work into this, and there is much to learn from it, one can only hope for an updated edition to address some of the weaknesses.
