Trust and Obey: The Norman Shepherd Controversy

I have begun reading through Ian Hewitson’s Trust and Obey, which is a full treatment of the Norman Shepherd controversy at Westminster Theological Seminary. The point of the book is that WTS “did not have the necessary grounds on which to remove Professor Shepherd from his teaching post (19).” The book considers vast amount of reports and faculty minutes of those long years of trial.

John Frame writes that this is an “accurate and clear account of the matter (9).” Those who have long watched the Federal Vision controversy unfold over the years will realize that Shepherd’s name is one mentioned quite often in denominational reports. Perhaps this book and the research will add greater clarity to a discussion often misunderstood.

    Peter, I got a copy from someone. Once I am done reviewing it I can send it to you…though it will be pretty marked up. It might be around a month from now. Are you coming to BH?
