After 300 years of being unavailable, Archbishop James Ussher's A
BODY OF DIVINITY arrives from the printer today, July 3, 2007.
"The coherence and integrity of the Body of Divinity has been linked
by a number of scholars to the most important theological statements
of the seventeenth century. In his lectures on Evangelical Theology
(1890), the Princeton theologian A. A. Hodge argued that the Body of
Divinity had more to do in forming the [Westminster] Catechism and
Confession of Faith than any other book in the world; because it is
well known that ... this book, which he compiled as a young man, was
in circulation in this Assembly among the individuals composing it.
And if this is true, you could easily see how much of suggestion
there is in it which was afterward carried into the Catechism--the
Larger Catechism especially--of that Assembly." - Dr. Crawford
Gribben, from the New Introduction
"Archbishop James Ussher (1581-1656) was a leader par excellence
among the Irish Puritans. His colorful history is inseparable from
that of Irish Christianity and from major events transpiring
simultaneously in England and Scotland. Ussher's range of
achievements are outstanding, including ancient languages,
patristics, ancient and Irish history, theology, and chronology.
Though he is best known for his biblical chronology, I believe that
his Body of Divinity is his most valuable legacy. This volume, long
overdue to be reprinted, was once regarded as a classic in the field
of Reformed systematic theology and deserves to be so regarded again.
Here is pristine Irish Puritan theology, presented to us in a
captivating question and answer format." - Joel R. Beeke
