The Main Themes of Alexander Whyte

Peter Davidson

Reprint of an article in the Evangelical Quarterly 1955. It reveals the pervasiveness in Whyte's preaching of the subject of sin, and of specific sins. He was criticised by contemporaries for an over-emphasis on this area and for falling into the trap of preaching justification by works which did not allow for 'real peace'. The relationship of justification to sanctification is explored and the place of prayer.


Peter D Thomson

The role of the Moderator of a court of the church is discussed and it is argued that the opening worship be either dropped or reconfigured.
