Mike Horton, of Westminster Theological Seminary in California, has produced a one volume systematic theology which is already highly acclaimed (endorsements include those by Hunsinger, Webster, Vanhoozer, Wells, and Sproul). Horton has been genuinely prolific over the past fifteen years. He has been a key figure in the White Horse Inn, written four volumes of theology in conversation with the Reformed Orthodoxy of the seventeenth century, and many other books besides, edited Modern Reformation, and featured in major conferences all over America and elsewhere. How he has done all this, and much more, while remaining a devoted family man, is beyond most of us. He is undoubtedly a major voice in the theological conversation taking place in the English speaking world at the moment.
Mike Horton's capacity for clear and engaging prose, his careful reading and evaluation of contributions from a wide range of theological perspectives, and his determined biblical stance, ensure that this volume, massive though it is (990 pages), will be of considerable benefit to all who read it. My skimming of this work (all I have been able to do to this point) has whet my appetite for a more sustained engagement with his presentation of the faith.
