By Christine Otis on December 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
This is John M. Otis, the author of the book "Danger In the Camp." This is not a review, but a response to a comment that was made in a review submitted by Mr. James Jordan. He is critical of me for haven written a review of my own book and given it five stars. I can understand his concern.

I did not write the review he is referring to. I have removed it from this site encouraging the one who wrote it to send it in under his email address. What has happened is that the gentleman who wrote the review in question sent me his review to have me post it on Amazon, which I did. But in doing so, Amazon automatically put my name (John Otis) as the reviewer since it was my email account. This gives the definite impression that I am the reviewer when I am not.

This is simply a clarification of what happened. It is very unfortunate, and the review he is referring to has been removed. Again, I have sent word to the actual reviewer to re-submt his review. I have personally contacted Mr. Jordan and explained to him what happened.

I am sorry for this confusion.

Format: Paperback
This book is an extensively documented critique of the Federal Vision theology movement. The book concentrates on the doctrine of justification. While this is the issue of overwhelming importance, especially from the point of view of the critics, this emphasis also tends to miss what motivates the Federal visionaries. If you want to have a collection of representative statements from the, by now extensive, material that FV writers have written on matters related to justification, organized by topic and with a critique comparing these statements to Reformed confessions and major theologians, then this is the book for you.

What you will not get is: an overview of Federal Vision thinking on all topics; a study of theological sources and influences on the FV (about which Otis seems to be in the dark); an explanation of who the FV writers are vs. who the sources and fellow travellers are; an explanation of the differences between the ecclesiology of Schlissel and the institutional and ritual orientation of the FV movement; examples from the writings of some of the seminal FV authors, such as Jordan, Meyers and Leithart; and an explanation of how views of reason and revelation feed into the movement, and how the older Vantillians compare to the younger post-modernists.

There are also quite a few peculiarities in the book. To support his analysis of how the Reformed view of merit compares to other theologies Otis uses Homer Hoeksema for several pages, without appearing to realize that Hoeksema, as a member of the Protestant Reformed Church (PRC), rejects the Westminster system of covenant theology (specifically the Covenant of Works and Christ's meritorious obedience as the Second Adam) just as much as the Federal Vision does.

Danger in the Camp: An Analysis and Refutation of the Heresies of the Federal Vision is a must read for every Christian, from the pastor on down to the layman in the church pew! In this scholarly work, Reverend John Otis addresses the doctrines of the Federal Vision, to determine if Orthodox Christianity is in fact endangered by this new doctrinal paradigm. He painstakingly lays out the basis for the historical reformed positions expressed in the confessions and creeds, as understood in the Scriptures. He then compares the teachings of the Federal Vision with these positions, producing a sound argument against the Federal Vision. Anyone who has been exposed to these teachings would have to admit that it has been a confusing and complex controversy at best. Reverend Otis has undertaken the difficult task of bringing light and clarity to this controversy. After reading his book, I was challenged to return to the basic doctrines that I had once been taught from scripture that had been the beauty of the reformed faith It reminded me of Paul's exhortation to young Timothy to "Take heed to yourself and to the doctrine." (1Tim 4:16)

To have a clear understanding of the differences in doctrinal positions, we need to go back to the Reformation. Did Luther and Calvin, the great reformers of the Protestant Reformation, have it all wrong when they taught doctrines that were contrary to the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church? Were they wrong for teaching that man is justified by grace through faith in Christ alone? Their teachings, championed the doctrines of Sola Fide, Sola Gratia, and Sola Christo, and were the rallying cries for the Reformation. They sought to put the Bible in the hands of the laymen while at the same time refuting the heretical teachings of the Roman Church.

Since 2002 shock-waves have been sent throughout the Reformed world by a new theological paradigm known as the Federal Vision (or Auburn Avenue Theology). Many of the men presently involved in the Federal Vision were once some of the most brilliant minds within Reformed Christianity (James Jordan, Douglas Wilson, Peter Leithart and Steve Schlissel), but, to the shock and horror of their brethren, they have espoused a dangerous new theology which threatens the Reformation doctrines of sola fide, sola gratia and sola Christo, as well as fundamentally repudiating the five points of Calvinism. What is most worrying, is that Federal Vision proponents have chosen to do this while still retaining Reformed terminology (which they have redefined) and while remaining in office in Reformed churches. Thus, right in the midst of the Reformed camp, the very essence of the Reformed faith is under serious attack.

In the light of such grave dangers, we should be thankful to Almighty God that he has raised up men like John Otis and his brethren in the Reformed Presbyterian Church in the United States (RPCUS) - who were the first denomination to condemn the Federal Vision - in order to warn the Lord's people about the heresies of Auburn Avenue Theology. With extensive quotes from Federal Visionists, Rev. Otis clearly proves that Auburn Avenue Theology is at odds with historic Protestant and Calvinistic doctrine, as he analyzes their teaching in the light of both Scripture and the Reformed Confessions.
