World Magazine Names Two RTS Professors Among the Recipients of Their Book Awards
June 17, 2014
(ASHEVILLE, NC) - June 16, 2014 - This year, World Magazine chose several winners for the Books of the Year in their "books issue" in categories of popular theology, history and analysis. They also chose a winner for an 'in the spotlight' category, for its need for special recognition. Normally there is only one Book of the Year award from the committee of World writers.
Dr. James Anderson, associate professor of theology and philosophy at RTS/Charlotte, was the winner in the popular theology category for his book What's Your Worldview?: An Interactive Approach to Life's Big Questions (Crossway, 2014). According to World editor Marvin Olasky and writer Janie Cheaney, Anderson asks questions of the reader about their worldview and some answers can lead them down to a "self-contradictory" ending and then asks the reader again if they can "live consistently with that result."
Anderson is an ordained minister in the Associate Reformed Presbyterian Church. He received a Ph.D. in both computer simulation and philosophical theology from the University of Edinburgh in Scotland.
The book chosen for special recognition was John Frame's Systematic Theology: An Introduction to Christian Belief (P&R, 2013). Frame has served as professor of systematic theology and philosophy at RTS/Orlando since 2002. The editor calls Frame's theology "Bible-centered, readable, and devout." They also note the key terms, study questions and memory verses at the end of each chapter to use for group studies.
Frame received an A.B. from Princeton, a B.D. from Westminster Theological Seminary, an A.M. and M.Phil from Yale, and a D.D. from Belhaven. He is the author of numerous books including The Doctrine of the Word of God which received the 2003 ECPA Gold Medallion Award. He is also a talented pianist and organist.
