John H. Gerstner (November 22, 1914—March 24, 1996), a native of Tampa, Florida, was arguably the preeminent Reformed theologian of his day. Gerstner earned graduate degrees at Westminster Theological Seminary and completed a Ph.D. at Harvard University in 1945. He was a professor of church history at Pittsburgh-Xenia Theological Seminary, and visiting professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Knox Theological Seminary, Reformed Theological Seminary, and Ligonier Ministries.
Gerstner has written hundreds of articles and penned several books in church history and Christian theology. He is known for his books Theology in Dialogue, Primitive Theology, and his most enduring work, the three-volume set titled, The Rational Biblical Theology of Jonathan Edwards. Gerstner was a teacher and mentor to R. C. Sproul, who was a framer of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy.
