I first discovered John Frame’s writings during my first semester in seminary. The first book I read by Frame was his The Doctrine of God (P&R, 2002), which was an option textbook for Bruce Ware’s Christian Theology I class. I have enjoyed many of Frame’s other books and articles over the year, especially his Salvation Belongs to the Lord: An Introduction to Systematic Theology (P&R, 2006). I have often recommended the latter volume to laypeople who wanted to read a good systematic theology (while lamenting that there is no Baptist counterpart to Frame’s book!).
Recently, I came across an older blog post from Andy Naselli titled “John Frame’s Advice: 30 Suggestions for Theological Students and Young Theologians.” The thirty questions are excerpted from “Reflections of a Lifetime Theologian: An Extended Interview with John M. Frame,” interviewed by P. Andrew Sandlin in Speaking the Truth in Love: The Theology of John Frame, ed. John J. Hughes (Phillipsburg, NJ: P&R, 2009), 106–10.
I won’t give all the gold away–you need to check out Andy’s blog for that–but it is great stuff. Highly recommended.
