Protest[edit]

I protest the reversion of this article to the form it was in before I made some additions and corrections.

It's not true that Francis Turretin is "mostly forgotten." Although this may have been true for many years, his works are increasingly sought by publishers since his magnum opus was republished in 1992. New English translations are in the works for his most important writings, and these are in high demand. Reformed theology is increasing in popularity in general, and many are finding Turretin very helpful in understanding the truth and combatting errors that have reappeard in the churches in our day.

Also, the ending on the first paragraph makes it sound like his Elenctic Theology ceased to be considered a standard after the publication of Charles Hodge's Systematic Theology. That is not the case. More precisely, Princeton Seminary, where Hodge taught theolgy, switched from Turretin's volumes to Hodge's volumes as a primary textbook.

With edits saying people are going to hell and beginning the edit here with the "heretical" label - the reversion was justified --Trödel 09:29, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
Agreed about the non-neutral edits. However, Fraasrd has a good point about Hodge v. Turretin, and his post-reversion edit seems fine. Of course, one would need a reliable source to support the claim that T.'s works are "in high demand." --Flex (talk|contribs) 13:37, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
Sounds good, Agree re Turretin - that is why I left it there. Thoug as you say we do need a source. --Trödel 17:01, 1 December 2006 (UTC)
