Sacramental Theology Anyone?

Craig Higgins’ doctoral dissertation some years ago is still very much a picture of modern presbyterian minimization of the sacraments for church life. In Higgins’ research “three-quarters of the students admit to having studied sacramental theology only a moderate amount or less. ” Whether  the modern evangelical culture has succeeded in drawing Christians far away from the external (means of grace) to the internal (piety and introspection), or whether this is a sign of the failure of the Reformed Presbyterian seminary these days to teach a Calvinian sacramentology, is still a debated matter. As always, it appears that both are at work in this unfortunate conclusion.
