Now Available: Clark and His Correspondents: Selected Letters of Gordon H. Clark

Clark and His Correspondents Front Cover.jpg

With Tom Juodaitis editing, and the help of Jaime Rodriguez Jr., Sam Colon, and Errol Ng typing up letters, I narrowed down a “best of” collection of Gordon H. Clark’s letters which is now available for purchase from The Trinity Foundation here:

I think readers of GHC’s books are going to love reading his letters. There are important theological points made in them and fascinating historical and personal details. I expect many of these letters to be referenced in theological discussions, blog posts, and hopefully in other books in due time.

    On pg. 232 of “Clark and His Correspondents” Dr. Clark alludes to an unpublished and near finished MSS., “a history and criticism of eighteenth (1750-1800) century Rationalism in Germany”. What ever happened to it?

      Good question! I have no leads. I’ll add it to my list of “unpublished, no copies found.” Here are the others:

      “The Last of the Prophets” – Speech given at Fourth Annual Eastern Regional Conference of the League of Evangelical Students. Late 1932 / early 1933.

      1937. Modern Apologetics in the Field of Philosophy – speech to the League of Evangelical Student at Wheaton College, March 8, 1937. Listed in “Dr. Clark to Address League Next Monday” The Wheaton Record, March 5, 1937.

      1938. Distinctions Between What is Sacred and What is Secular. Speech given in the chapel at Wheaton College, Jan. 20, 1938. Listed in “Dr. Clark to Speak to Academy Chapel” The Wheaton Record, Jan. 18, 1938.

      1951. “The Nature of Logical Order.” Read at 1951 ETS 3rd Annual Meeting, Dec 17-18, 1951- No copies found

      c. 1960s Machen Anthology – A book started in the 1960’s. Permission denied to GHC and “Cohen” by WTS for the writing of the book. (Gary Cohen?, Arthur Cohen at Holt, Reinhart, and Winston publisher?)

      1965. “Lampert’s Apocalypse of History” – Read at 1965 Midwestern Section ETS Tenth General Meeting, April 23, 1965 – No copies found.

      ???? The Validity of Philosophical Theology (Listed in PCA archives 310 23)

      • David Blythe says:

        Could it be possible that the aforementioned history of German Rationalism was published as “Fifty Years of Infidelity” in the May/June 1990 issue of the Trinity Review?

    • douglasdouma says:

      It seems unlikely that “Fifty Years of Infidelity” would be the whole “history and criticism of eighteenth century Rationalism in Germany” since the former is only a few pages and the latter is spoken of as a manuscript. But maybe it is an excerpt.
