Warfield, his greatness as a theologian

Reading Fred Zaspel’s tremendous doctoral thesis on B.B. Warfield and I agree fully with him that it says much that the sesquicentennial of Warfield’s birth—2001—passed virtually unnoticed.  I would agree with Fred that Warfield was the greatest theologian of the twentieth century—much more important in the cause of God than that darling of wayward Evangelicals, Karl Barth!


Love this remark by Gresham Machen about Warfield, who was his mentor: “With all his glaring faults he was the greatest man I have known.”
