The Auburn Avenue Theology – Pros and Cons (henceforth AAT) is a the result of a private coloquium, voted afterward to be published. The Editor is Knox Seminary professor E Calvin Beisner, who hosted the coloquy. The meeting was funded by a private investor, a Christian business man who thought people on both sides would profit from a safe and listening intensive discussion with each other. A chance for each to question the others’ views behind closed doors. After all was said and done, the participants agreed to publish papers born out of the discussion.

The chapters begin with two reviews of the respective opposing positions (Wilson and Pipa). After that most chapter sections go back and forth with papers for or against. Usually as position papers and then response papers. Lastly Calvin Beisner, who couldn’t speak up during the conference, writes his own thoughts and opinion.
