Current Justification Controversy, The $9.95 $4.98

O. Palmer Robertson
Trade paperback, 120 pages, 2003

This is the only book-length account of the Norman Shepherd controversy in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and Westminster Theological Seminary ever published. That controversy lasted 7 years (1975-1982) and was never properly resolved by either the Seminary or the denomination. Written at the time of the controversy, Robertson's manuscript was suppressed by the faculty of Covenant Seminary, which refused to publish it in in its academic journal Presbuterion for fear of offending the faculty of Westminster Seminary. It appears here in print for the first time, 20 years after it was written.

Contents: Introduction; The Beginnings of the Controversy; The October 1976 Paper; Reactions to the October 1976 Paper; The Issue before the Presbytery; The Downingtown Conference (1978); The "Committee to Draw Up a Statement"; The Commission on Allegations; Implications for Church Union and Unity; The Removal of Mr. Shepherd; Challenge, Response-and Continuation; Causes of the Controversy; Index; Scripture Index
