Blending illuminating scholarship with balanced judgment, this well-received investigation clarifies the distinctive aspects of evangelicalism as it lays the foundations for productive dialogue with others in the Christian tradition.
Rooted in the classical tradition of reformation theology informed by biblical spirituality, Dr. Bloesch places theological issues in the context of both a historical perspective and the new life found in Christ. The fruit of twenty years of scholarship by one of evangelical Christianity's senior theologians, this accessible two-volume work insightfully explores the implications of a broad-based Evangelicalism.
"This book is addressed not only to evangelicals but to all Christians who are seeking to think through their faith in the light of new advances in biblical and theological scholarship as well as in the face of new challenges from a secularized culture. Its intent is to break down the walls that divide Christians from one another on significant doctrinal issues so that the church can give a unified witness to a world that sorely needs to hear and believe the good news of reconciliation and redemption through Jesus Christ."
