Above All Earthly Powers

David Wells is Professor of Historical and Systematic Theology at Gordon-Conwell. This book, whose title is taken from the last stanza of Luther’s “A Mighty Fortress is Our God,” is subtitled “Christ in a Postmodern World.” [Eerdmans, 2005] It is a 339 page paperback with bibliography and subject index.

This is the fourth volume in his series analyzing the contemporary Evangelical church, with “…its temptation to negotiate the gospel in the interest of ephemeral relevance.” [Timothy George] His first volume in this series was: No Place for Truth, or Whatever Happened to Evangelical Theology?
