Description : Today's church finds itself in a new world, one in which climate change and ecological degradation are front-page news. In the eyes of many, the evangelical community has been slow to take up a call to creation care. How do Christians address this issue in a faithful way? This evangelically centered but ecumenically informed introduction to ecological theology (ecotheology) explores the global dimensions of creation care, calling Christians to meet contemporary ecological challenges with courage and hope. The book provides a biblical, theological, ecological, and historical rationale for earthcare as well as specific practices to engage both individuals and churches. Drawing from a variety of Christian traditions, the book promotes a spirit of hospitality, civility, honesty, and partnership. It includes a foreword by Bill McKibben and an afterword by Matthew Sleeth.

Description : Written by a skilled theologian with over two decades of classroom experience, this introduction to evangelical theology explains how connecting to five sources of Christian theology--Scripture, tradition, reason, experience, and community--leads to a richer and deeper understanding of the faith. Graham McFarlane calls this the "evangelical quintilateral," which he recommends as a helpful rubric for teaching theology. This integrative model introduces students to the sources, themes, tasks, and goals of evangelical theology, making the book ideal for introductory theology courses.

Description : Evangelical Theology is a systematic theology written from the perspective of a biblical scholar. Michael F. Bird contends that the center, unity, and boundary of the evangelical faith is the evangel (= gospel), as opposed to things like justification by faith or inerrancy. The evangel is the unifying thread in evangelical theology and the theological hermeneutic through which the various loci of theology need to be understood. Using the gospel as a theological leitmotif—an approach to Christian doctrine that begins with the gospel and sees each loci through the lens of the gospel—this text presents an authentically evangelical theology, as opposed to an ordinary systematic theology written by an evangelical theologian. According to the author, theology is the drama of gospelizing—performing and living out the gospel in the theatre of Christian life. The text features tables, sidebars, and questions for discussion. The end of every part includes a “What to Take Home” section that gives students a run-down on what they need to know. And since reading theology can often be dry and cerebral, the author applies his unique sense of humor in occasional “Comic Belief” sections so that students may enjoy their learning experience through some theological humor added for good measure.

Description : Theological interpretation of Scripture is a growing trend in biblical interpretation, with an emphasis on the contexts of canon, creed, and church. This approach seeks to bridge the gap between biblical studies and theology, which grew wide with the ascendancy of critical approaches to Scripture. Introducing Theological Interpretation of Scripture is the first clear, systematic introduction to this movement for students. The book surveys the movement's history, themes, advocates, and positions and seeks to bring coherence to its various elements. Author Daniel Treier also explores what he sees as the greatest challenges the movement will have to address as it moves into the future. This helpful book is appropriate for pastors and lay readers interested in biblical interpretation.

Description : This is a print on demand book and is therefore non- returnable. A theology that is real, readable, and relevant -- such is Paul Jewett's God, Creation, and Redemption. Writing from a distinctively evangelical and Reformed viewpoint, Jewett offers a general, systematic introduction to these doctrines of the Christian church: how we know God (revelation and Scripture); who God is (the divine nature); what God is like (the divine attributes); and what God has done (creation). While upholding the historic Christian faith, Jewett's approach to Christian teaching is uniquely "neo-evangelical" in that he seeks to expound and clarify orthodox Christianity for Christians today: Jewett purposely sets forth his systematic theology in light of scientific and social issues that confront the church in the contemporary world. Throughout the book Jewett also refers to literary masterpieces and to the church's hymns, giving the reader a greater appreciation for the theological treasures in our literature and our hymnody.

Description : Swiss theologian Karl Barth traveled to the United States only once during his long career. In 1962, newly retired, he came to visit family and to deliver a series of lectures subsequently published (by Eerdmans) as Evangelical Theology: An Introduction, which remains in print and widely read to this day. Besides recounting some delightful and poignant biographical details about Barth’s two-month journey through the States, the authors of this book revisit central themes in Barth’s mature theology and explore the theological and ethical significance of his Evangelical Theology. Even more, the distinguished scholars contributing to this volume assess contemporary North American theology and show how Barth’s Evangelical Theology remains as bracing, powerful, and relevant today as it was fifty years ago.

Description : This book provides a succinct account of how the doctrine of predestination has been explained in the soteriologies of mainline evangelical theological traditions. It does not attempt to set forth a new system of theological thought but to simply restate the mainline Protestant traditions in a way that interested Christians and early career students of theology may understand as they respond to God's call to do theology and ministry today. Despite the central role it plays in evangelical theological thought, the doctrine of predestination receives far too less attention today than it ought to in many evangelical churches and institutions. Regrettably, many teachers who attempt to teach this doctrine are often not quite versed with its theological history and the exact positions held by each mainline tradition on the subject. Therefore this book attempts to present a fairly balanced view of predestination as explained in the soteriologies of these mainline traditions. It begins with a critical account of how the Protestant movement began and then proceeds to state how the different mainline theological traditions such as Lutheranism, Calvinism, and Arminianism have explained predestination in their soteriologies. The book also attempts a critical comparison of each tradition and discusses how they may shape the thoughts of interested Christians and early career students of theology as they construct their own theological convictions for ministry today.

Description : Evangelicalism has long been a hotly disputed label, and what counts as evangelical theology is often anyone s guess. Is evangelicalism a static bounded set defined by clear doctrinal limits, or is it a dynamic centered set without a discernible circumference? In this inaugural volume in the Studies in Christian Doctrine and Scripture, Kevin Vanhoozer and Daniel Treier present evangelical theology as an "anchored" set, rooted in the Trinity. In response to increasing evangelical fragmentation, Theology and the Mirror of Scripture offers a clarion call to reconceive evangelical theology theologically by reflecting on the God of the gospel as mirrored in Scripture. Such "mere" evangelical theology will be an exercise in Christian wisdom for the purpose of building up the fellowship of saints.

It deals with the key themes of atonement, conversion, justification, and sanctification, as well as recent developments around Trinitarian theology and pneumatology. Each chapter tackles a doctrinal area of special concern to evangelicals by examining its biblical roots, historical developments, on-going controversies, and potential ways forward. The aim is to not only situate evangelical theology, but to highlight how its particular orientation toward Scripture and mission decisively shapes evangelical theological reflection, and makes it a special contribution to the church. As evangelicalism is now a global movement, this volume is also attentive to contributions from the majority world. It provides a lively and constructive account of the exciting discipline of evangelical theology"--

Description : Karl Barth was the master theologian of our age. Whenever men in the past generation have reflected deeply on the ultimate problems of life and faith, they have done so in a way that bears the mark of the intellectual revolution let loose by this Swiss thinker. But his life was not simply one of quiet reflection and scholarship. He was obliged to do his thinking and writing in one of the stormiest periods of history, and he always attempted to speak to the problems and concerns of the time. In June 1933 he emerged as the theologian of the Confessional movement, which was attempting to preserve the integrity of the Evangelical Church in Germany against corruption from within and terror from without. His leadership in this struggle against Nazism also made it necessary for him to say something about the totalitarianism that the Soviet power was clamping down upon a large part of Europe. In this indirect way, a Barthian social philosophy emerged, and this theologian, who abjured apologetics and desired nothing but to expound the Word of God, was compelled by circumstances to propound views on society and the state that make him one of the most influential social thinkers of our time. David Haddorff is Associate Professor of Theology and Religious Studies at St. John's University, New York. He is the author of several articles and reviews, and the book: Dependence and Freedom: The Moral Thought of Horace Bushnell (1994).
