Carl Trueman is wrong about J.I. Packer

Yes, it would have been great if J.I. Packer had produced a systematic theology.  But who says that he needs to?  While acknowledging the theological acumen of J.I. Packer, Professor Carl Trueman calls Packer a “failure” for not producing a systematic theology.

Professor Trueman is wrong.  As professor of historical theology and church history, Trueman should know that a systematic theology is not the only path to leaving an enduring legacy.  Ask Luther, Edwards and so on.
