To follow up on my previous post about Donald Robinson and Broughton Knox: “The evangelical Christian world owes a great debt to Graeme Goldsworthy”. These words were spoken by Peter Jensen at the book launch of Christ-centred biblical theology:
What Goldsworthy shows is that although there were in the earlier years few books which emanated from Newtown, and little enough to establish or enhance the reputation of Moore College in any but a local way, there was creative and rigorous thought occurring in Carillon Avenue [in Newtown, Sydney]. Here could be found a small school of Australians, in touch with critical and international scholarship, who were working on the Bible with the best tools available to them and working with students in a way which inspired them. It is absolutely no accident than in the next decades, students who had been shaped by Robinson and Knox began to preach expository sermons and began to do the advanced study which brought forth what now amounts to a constant stream of scholarly books of the highest order.
Not least amongst those who graced this movement is Graeme Goldsworthy himself.
