'Contending for the Faith' offers a selection of Reymond's papers in the areas of Systematic Theology and Apologetics. The one thing these articles generally have in common is their apologetic flavour, that is to say, each in its own way contends for the Biblical and Reformed Faith. Many of these papers have never been previously published.

Robert offers them to a broader readership as they address topics that are, in many cases, being debated within the Church at large today. We are given unique insights into a huge range of subjects from Creation to Lord's Day Observance, from the Trinity to Islam. This is a hugely significant contribution to the defence of the Christian Faith that makes points that are difficult to ignore.

Robert L. Reymond (1932-2013) taught for more than 25 years on the faculties of Covenant Theological Seminary (St. Louis, Missouri) and Knox Theological Seminary (Ft. Lauderdale, Florida). He held degrees from Bob Jones University and did post-doctoral studies at Fuller Seminary, New York University, Union Seminary (New York), Tyndale House, Cambridge, and Rutherford House, Edinburgh.



'With customary thoroughness and exacting exegesis, Professor Reymond leads us through a maze of theological topics which call out for a clear biblical perspective in our day. His guiding principle is that God can be glorified in our theological reflection only as we listen to the teaching of his authoritative Word. Reymond is a much-needed prophetic voice in our day, calling us to pay attention to 'Thus says the Lord.' - Iain D. Campbell, Minister, Point Free Church of Scotland, Isle of Lewis
