The Collected Works of James Wm. McClendon, Jr. : Volume 3 Hardback
Edited by Ryan Andrew Newson, Andrew C. Wright
James Wm. McClendon, Jr. (1924a2000) was the most important "baptist" theologian of the twentieth century.
McClendon crafted a systematic theology that grew out of the immediacy of preaching the text, refused to succumb to the pressures of individualism, and lamented the stunted public witness of a fractured Protestant ecclesiology.
This third and final volume of his Collected Works provides a compendium of McClendon's sermonsaexamples of what he called "first-order" theology in action.
While McClendon was predominantly known as a philosophical theologian, he persisted in the belief that the theology that mattered most occurred in ordinary congregations seeking to bear faithful witness in the world.
The sermons in this collectionamany rarely seen and never before publishedaprovide an important window into McClendon's own theology and witness to his convictions about theology's purpose and end.
This third volume serves as an invaluable resource for ministers, students, and theologians who seek a fuller understanding of McClendon's "baptist" theology.
