Heidegger’s Concise Marrow of Christian Theology is the smallest piece of a threefold theological curriculum. It is an abridgement of Heidegger’s Medulla Theologiae Christianae (The Marrow of Christian Theology), which in turn is a stepping-stone to his more advanced dogmatic system, Corpus Theologiae Christianae (The Substance of Christian Theology).
Casey Carmichael’s translation and Ryan Glomsrud’s historical introduction make a significant contribution to historical studies of Reformed Scholasticism. It acquaints English readers with a significant, though largely forgotten theologian and his efforts to secure a solid program for advancing in systematic theology. Concise Marrow displays the elementary points of all the main topics of dogma, forming a theological primer for beginners. It is characterized by succinct definitions and ample biblical support, apt for setting a good foundation and starting point for deeper theological reflection.
“Fresh, rich, and relevant are only a few of the qualities of Heidegger’s Concise Marrow as well as of the translation by Casey Carmichael and the introduction by Ryan Glomsrud. Finally a broader audience has access to this fine overview of classical Reformed theology from which the church today still can learn a lot.”
—Herman Selderhuis, president of the Theological University of Apeldoorn
“How did Reformed theologians teach theology around the end of the seventeenth century, and, more importantly, what did they teach? The present book, translated for the first time in English (or in any language), helps us answer this question. We can be grateful to Casey Carmichael and to the editors of the Classic Reformed Theology book series for making this treatise available in English!”
—Christophe Chalamet, associate professor of systematic theology, University of Geneva
