Resurrection and Eschatology: Theology in Service of the Church: Essays in Honor of Richard B. Gaffin Jr.
Tipton, Lane G.; Waddington, Jeffrey
These chapters reveal the esteem with which Dr. Gaffin is held. Those of us in the Reformed community, particularly 'professional' theologians like myself, are indebted to Dr. Gaffin in ways that would probably embarrass him. It hasn't been his written output so much (though crucial and indispensable, this has been relatively small); rather, it has been his quiet, resolute defense of orthodoxy rooted in enviable exegetical skills that continues to challenge us. He is a quiet giant in a theological Liliiputian world to whom we owe an immense amount of gratitude and respect. Without him we would be immeasurably the poorer.- Derek W. H. Thomas, John E.

Richard B. Gaffin Jr. is a beloved and respected theologian in the Reformed community. He has urged us throughout his career to understand Bible passages in their proper contexts, the most fundamental context being that of Jesus' atonement and resurrection. This volume honors Gaffin by recreating the context of his own ministry: rigorous and sophisticated scholarship, along with Christocentric understandings of redemptive history, solidly within the bounds of Reformed confessionalism.See All

Richard B. Gaffin Jr, stands tall among present-day theologians as one who has given his life to the study of scripture and to its expression in the church. His influence spans five decades and is felt through his tireless service both at Westminster Theological Seminary and the Orthodox Presbyterian Church.
Resurrection and Eschatology emphasizes the fruits of Dr. Gaffin's labor in three key areas: biblical and systematic theology, historical and polemical theology, and pastoral theology. A wide range of scholars contribute essays demonstrating his influence in biblical and theological studies, and pastors offer sermons showing how his theology can be brought to the pulpit.
