The new book, The Essential Forde, is pseudo-Forde (2)

The Essential Forde[1] is a collection without context. The book includes four chapters from Forde’s thesis, The Law-Gospel Debate,[2] and other articles or selections from his writings. But no context is given for any item. Not even bibliographical information. We give you the context in the real Forde
