Q/A with Robert Letham on his New Book “The Westminster Assembly”
Over at Christian Book News I was able to interview Robert Letham on his new book The Westminster Assembly: Reading its Theology in Historical Context (P&R). You can read Part 1 and Part 2. The book was excellent and a review will be published soon at Christian Book News. Below are the questions I asked:
- What is the occasion for a book like this? Are you responding to certain misunderstandings of the era and its thought?
- What is the value of understanding the theology of the Westminster Assembly in its Historical Context?
- There is mention of “new primary source material,” can you elaborate on what that might be?
- What do you hope to accomplish from this work and what would you like your readers to take away from it?
