âThe Westminster Confession says that the âwhole counsel of GodâŚis either expressly set down in Scripture, or by good and necessary consequence may be deduced from Scriptureâ (1.6, emphasis added). McGraw begins this work by noting the biblical foundation of the principle, especially evident in the words of the Lord Jesus Christ. He then examines the usage among the contemporaries of the authors of the Westminster Standards, and in another section deals with the most significant objections to this principle. He treats the need for ânecessary consequenceâ in four major areas of theology, and concludes with certain practical applications that impact the Christian life and church. This excellent book helps us understand the significance of ânecessary consequenceâ not only for the Confession but also for Scripture study in general, and is worthwhile for grounding the principle in the Lord Jesus Christ and the writers of the Scripture. â George W. Knight III, Adjunct Professor of New Testament, Greenville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
âMcGraw handles this crucial matter with great skill, combining careful exegesis, wide historical scholarship, and incisive practical application. All in positions of church leadership should read, ponder, and follow his wise directions.â â Robert Letham, Senior Tutor in Systematic and Historical Theology, Wales Evangelical School of Theology
