The Christian Faith: A Systematic Theology…, by Michael Horton

The Christian Faith: A Systematic Theology for   Pilgrims on the Way

Product Description

Prolific theologian Michael Horton’s highly anticipated The Christian Faith: A Systematic Theology for Pilgrims on The Way represents his magnum opus and will be viewed as one of-if not the-most important systematic theologies since the final volume of Karl Barth’s Church Dogmatics.
Horton views this volume as "doctrine that can be preached, experienced, and lived, as well as understood, clarified, and articulated." It is written for a growing cast of pilgrims making their way together towards Christ and will be especially welcomed by professors, pastors, students, and armchair theologians. Features of this volume include:
(1) a brief synopsis of biblical passages that inform a particular doctrine; (2) surveys of past and current theologies with contemporary emphasis on exegetical, philosophical, practical, and theological questions; (3) substantial interaction with various Christian movements within the Protestant, Catholic, and Orthodox traditions, as well as the hermeneutical issues raised by postmodernity; and (4) practical tools for learning such as charts, sidebars, questions for discussion, and an extensive bibliography, divided into different entry levels and topics.
Finally, unlike many single volume systematic theologies available today, we should note that Horton makes a deliberate emphasis to engage ecumenically by interacting with the many disciplines and denominations that he does. He recognizes that he is in conversation with a broad Christian tradition, and this will make his volume a valuable conversation partner for Christians of all perspectives.
