A positive approach to tradition

Posted by

I have been benefitting this week from reading Scott Clark's Recovering the Reformed Confession. The opening chapter is very thoughtful and thought-provoking, particularly in Scott's discussion of tradition. He quotes John Murray to the effect that 'there is a catholic, protestant and a reformed tradition'. None of us can approach Scripture without the effect and impact of our tradition, and the principle of sola scriptura is not compromised thereby. I think Scott's book is one of the most timely calls for critical appreciation and engagement with our tradition, and should be read by every Reformed pastor and theologian.
