SWA Anthony Tuckney (1599-1670): Theologian of the Westminster Assembly
2 in stock
In this book, Youngchun Cho investigates the theology of Anthony Tuckney, an overlooked yet highly influential member of the Westminster Assembly. After a brief biography and an evaluation of Tuckney’s use of Scripture and reason, Cho shows how he related union with Christ to the doctrine of the Trinity, soteriology, and assurance of salvation.
This book refutes claims that seventeenth-century Reformed theology in general, and the Westminster Standards in particular, pursued logical precision at the expense of the dynamic aspect of union with Christ.
“Anthony Tuckney played a crucial role in training Puritan preachers at Cambridge and writing the Westminster Standards, yet few remember him today. Cho’s well-written, ground-breaking theological biography of Tuckney shows how the Puritans employed the sophisticated theological tools of Reformed orthodoxy to promote biblical, Christ-centered faith and piety.”
