Living in Australia, we often hear the echoes of debates in Reformed circles in America. It can be hard to work out what they are about, who the players are and why they matter (if they do). Mark Jones is an insightful commentator on many of these debates, so we’ve asked him to take us through three of them.
He will look at the “Antinomianism” debate about whether God’s law has a role in the Christian life; the debate about the Eternal Submission of the Son to the Father and the recent controversy about whether Same Sex Attraction is sinful (hight lighted by the recent Revoice conference).
Mark Jones is Minister at Faith Vancouver Presbyterian Church (PCA). He has a Ph.D. from Leiden for a dissertation on the Puritan theologian Thomas Goodwin.
He has written A Puritan Theology: Doctrine for Life (Reformation Heritage, 2012) with Joel Beeke; Antinomianism: Reformed Theology’s Unwelcome Guest? (P&R, 2013); Knowing Christ (Banner of Truth, 2015); Faith. Hope. Love: The Christ-Centered Way to Grow in Grace (Crossway, 2017) and God Is: A Devotional Guide to the Attributes of God (Crossway, 2017).
