National Coordinator, Reformed University Ministries
"I confess a prejudice toward theologians who accord their opponents, even the vitriolic ones, respect and love. I have seen this over the years with John. And I have figured, with obstinate simplicity, that erudition must be accompanied by godliness to be genuine."See All

Speaking the Truth in Love: The Theology of John M. Frame is a Festschrift honoring Prof. Frame’s career in seminary teaching - but this book does not merely collect essays on the subjects of Frame’s interests, it analyses Frame’s own work in the fields of theology, apologetics, ethics, worship, the church, and others. The authors include Wayne Grudem, Richard Pratt, Paul Helm, Vern Poythress, Bruce Waltke, William Davis, William Edgar, Peter Jones, Reggie Kidd, and others who are familiar with Frame’s work. Many are Frame’s former students and colleagues.
This is the first large scale analysis of Frame’s distinctive approach. The essays go into considerable depth, comparing Frame with other approaches and applying his ideas to many fields that Frame himself has not explored.
