Douglas F. Kelly's RTS Patristics course lectures are now available.

To my fellow students and readers of the Church Fathers, Sermon Audio recently added Douglas Kelly's course lectures on the Patristics.

You will notice, there appear to be two series of lectures lumped together. I started at the second series of lectures with the lecture named "Patristics: 1. Intro (2/10)."


I appreciate the question Kelly poses to his students: The Magisterial Reformers and Puritans learned deeply from the Fathers and quoted them extensively. Why is it that from the Eighteenth Century and forward Reformed theologians greatly neglect the Fathers? I have pondered this often myself.

Side note: I could listen to Kelly all day, ramblings and all. Yes, he does ramble quite a bit, though I enjoy his anecdotes.

His lectures are great on a road trip! Definitely keeps you engaged. I often listened to these lectures and his systematic theology lectures while commuting to presbytery. I think he has some on Medieval church history too.

Nice! I have worked through many of his courses throughout my workday.

He mentioned this particular course in his Medieval Theology course and was disappointed that they weren't on the RTS app. Fortunately, Sermon Audio added these a few months ago.

Enjoy them!

I'm still waiting for Kelly's "Systematic Theology - Volume Three." It's been SEVEN YEARS since volume two was published (taps foot impatiently).

I originally heard that it was to be four volumes. Perhaps Dr. Kelly has cut it down to three?

I believe that it was always meant to be three volumes (see this thread from 2008). I read volume one and, despite liking it initially, I was not that impressed by the time that I got to the end of the book. It read too much like a calendar of quotations from the church fathers, but that is just my opinion.

On a side note, Kelly has a commentary on Deuteronomy coming out. Christian Focus will publish it.

As with the other titles in this series, I am sure it is collected from sermons he preached.
