It is not too much to say that no other contemporary Australian churchman has had a more original mind or has shown a more penetrating insight into questions of pure Theology, and that insight was derived from his understanding of the supreme revelation of truth in the Bible.‚Äù
Sir Marcus Loane's assessment of DB Knox would be shared by many who knew him. And yet the vast bulk of Christians, both in Australia and overseas, know little of Broughton Knox's massive influence on Christianity in Australia, let alone his impressive literary output.
This volume, the first in a series, aims to bring that output back into the public arena. It contains a selection of Broughton Knox's varied writings on the doctrine of God, many of them previously unpublished.
The centrepiece of the volume is The Everlasting God, Dr Knox's most well-known work. It is reprinted here, unabridged, but with the addition of extensive Scriptural footnoting.
Part 2 contains a selection of theological works, ranging from sermons to scholarly articles and radio talks.¬†They cover a multitude of subjects, all related in some way to the Christian worldview as it shaped by the doctrine of God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The general and biblical indices make this an excellent reference volume for Bible study leaders, theological students, and pastors.
The index of ‚ÄòKnox Gems‚Äô also provides a fascinating way into the thought of this extraordinary man.
