Crowned with Glory and Honor

Crowned with Glory and Honor

A Chalcedonian Anthropology

by Michael Wilkinson

The field of theological anthropology is at a standstill, mired in debate between dualist and physicalist perspectives on body and soul. In Crowned with Glory and Honor: A Chalcedonian Anthropology, Michael A. Wilkinson argues that the man Jesus is the way forward. Anthropology should be centered around Jesus. God the Son incarnate is true man, like us in all things except sin. Wilkinson approaches human ontology through Christology by looking to the Chalcedonian Definition and its Christology. Chalcedon confesses the man Jesus to be the divine person of the Son subsisting in a human nature. A Chalcedonian anthropology extends Jesus’s person-nature constitution to define what it means to be human.

Fundamentalists in the Public Square

Evolution, Alcohol, and Culture Wars after the Scopes Trial

by Madison Trammel

The Scopes Trial of 1925 is often regarded as a turning point in the history of American fundamentalism and evangelicalism. It is claimed that Scopes was a public relations defeat that sent fundamentalism into retreat from mainstream culture. In Fundamentalists in the Public Square: Evolution, Alcohol, and the Culture Wars after the Scopes Trial, Madison Trammel argues that such a characterization is misguided. Using documentary evidence from newspapers in the 1920s and 1930s, Trammel shows that fundamentalists remained fully active in seeking to transform the culture for Christ, and they remained so through the rise of Billy Graham’s ministry.

Praise for Books in the Series

“Seldom does a volume decisively propose a new interpretation that dislodges an ‘everyone knows given’ in historical accounts. But Madison Trammel’s Fundamentalists in the Public Square does just that. This book may change the way the story of American fundamentalism in the Twenties is told.”

John Woodbridge, research professor of church history and the history of Christian thought, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

“This excellent work explores what, if anything, the man Jesus Christ can contribute to a theologically sound understanding of humankind. Impeccably researched, carefully argued, historically grounded, and quite persuasive, this book is a must-read!”

Gregg Allison, professor of Christian theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
