by William Cunningham (1805-1861)
The study of the history of theology throws light on both truth and error. It helps us to recognize old heresies when we meet them in modern dress, and introduces us to the classical elucidations of truth which overthrow them for all time. Preachers cannot afford to neglect this field of study.
William Cunningham, Principal of New College, Edinburgh, from 1847 until his death in 1861, was one of the greatest of Scottish theologians. With his breadth of learning, depth of evangelical insight, exactness of thought and vigorous stately style, Cunningham was the Warfieldone might almost say, the Calvin--of the Free Church of Scotland for the first two decades of its life. Historical Theology is his masterpiece. These lectures cover most of the major doctrinal discussions of Christian history up to Cunningham's day, paying special attention to Romanism, Socinianism (the parent of much modern liberal teaching), and Arminianism. Everywhere the magisterial quality of the lecturer's mindprofound, precise, spacious, strongis in evidence.
"This work is like an elaborate and luminous judicial charge by a master of his subject addressed from the Bench to the jury of Christian students, who may well avail themselves of the judgments of so penetrating and comprehensive a mind."
