Mohler to Write a Systematic Theology

I very much look forward to this when it is finally published. If anyone should write a multi-volume work (which I hope this one will ultimately be) it should be on of the smartest men in Evangelicalism: Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr.

From Southern Seminary's newspaper The Towers:
His plans for the future also include the writing of a systematic theology textbook.

“My goal is that in the next 10 years, by the time I reach the end of this 10-year period, I’ll be well on my way to getting that systematic theology into final, printed form,” he said. “It will be a systematic theology written intentionally to express what it means to confess the faith once for all delivered to the saints within the very intellectually hostile conditions of late modernity.

“So it’s going to be a systematic theology and an apologetic engagement,” he said.

Because of the large number of quality systematics books available, Mohler said he doesn’t feel an urgency to publish his systematic soon. And several writing projects before then demand his attention. Nonetheless, Mohler views writing a systematic theology as his responsibility as president of Southern Seminary — just as presidents Boyce and E.Y. Mullins famously did.
