Systematic Theology

Rev. Dr. R. Carlton Wynne is assistant professor of systematic theology and apologetics. He has served as a pastor in the Presbyterian Church in America, and has co-edited with Derek Thomas Zeal for Godliness: Devotional Meditations on Calvin’s Institutes.

Dr. Wynne’s academic interests include trinitarian theology, apologetics, and biblical theology in the tradition of Geerhardus Vos. He is particularly interested in the integration of those areas of study and their bearing on the life of the church. For those who are new to Dr. Wynne’s writing and teaching on these interests, he recommends several resources as places to start. On trinitarian theology and redemptive history, consider his lecture on Wolfhart Pannenberg. On various topics, consider several, recent posts: “Was Jesus Morally Depraved? An Assessment,” “The Possibility of the Resurrection,” “Praying in the Whirlwind,” “What Goes Up Must Have Come Down,” and “I Worshipped ‘Allah’ Last Sunday.”
