John Gerstner Lectures

If you've never listened to the later Dr. John H. Gerstner you are neglecting a benefit for your soul from one of God's wonderful gifts to the church. Dr. Gerstner (1914-1996) was "Professor of Church History at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary and Knox Theological Seminary. He was an authority on the life and theology of Jonathan Edwards. Gerstner counted among his students R.C. Sproul and wrote several books, including Primitive Theology." The principle work for which he is remembered is The Rational Biblical Theology of Jonathan Edwards. You can read a short memorial of his life and work here. You can read two of Dr. Gerstner's articles over at Lionier's website. The first is "God's Providence: a Two Edged Sword (Part 3)," and the second "True and False Assurance." Ligonier has also posted several of Dr. Gerstner's audio lecture series:
