GOD THE LAWGIVER ACCORDING TO THE WESTMINSTER DIVINE BURGESS

by STEPHEN J. CASSELLI in Vol. 4 No. 1 / Apr 2018



Abstract
In this essay, we will consider the way in which Anthony Burgess—and therefore, presumably, the Westminster Confession of Faith—grounds its doctrine of God’s law in an “experimental awareness of the exalted Lawgiver.” His and their understanding of the law is not abstract or philosophical, but rather theological and therefore personal. We will conclude with some brief comments on the implications of Burgess’s work for contemporary reflections about natural law in the Reformed theological community.
