Gordon Spykman on AoLR


I've recently added the Gordon Spykman (1926-1993) pages to all ofliferedeemed. Including an excellent book by him: Spectacles: Biblical Perspectives on Christian Scholarship (IRS, Potchefstroom, 1985). This was originally a series of lectures delivered at the Potchefstroom University in South Africa. Bennie van der Walt describes the book thus:

This book contains the papers delivered by Dr. G. Spykman during his stay in Potchefstroom as a guest lecturer at the Potchefstroom University for Christian Higher Education in August-September 1983. It was first published in 1985. I am delighted with this long-awaited reprint, because I regard it to be a small jewel. In a few chapters Spykman discusses the essentials of a reformational worldview and a Christian approach to scholarship. It is furthermore written lucidly in a semi-popular scholarly style, making it accessible to a wide readership. May Spectacles help many Christians to polish their lenses to see their God-given calling with greater clarity. May our Lord richly bless this small book. with its great message!
