Overview

Evangelical thinkers in recent years have thrust differing and sometimes nontraditional views on the doctrine of God, the composition of the human person, and the nature of hell into the spotlight.

Across the Spectrum, written by Gregory A. Boyd and Paul R. Eddy, offers a service to students by carefully examining the various positions taken by evangelical scholars on eighteen seminal issues—both classic concerns and those of more contemporary interest. Rather than taking sides, however, the authors give readers the resources they need to explore evangelical theological options.

Among the many topics discussed are baptism, the nature of the self, the foreknowledge and providence of God, the interpretation of Genesis 1-2, the destiny of the unevangelized, and the Christology debate.

In the spirit of the popular four-views books, Boyd and Eddy carefully lay out the biblical, theological, and philosophical arguments for each position and discuss possible objections in point-counterpoint fashion. Each chapter also includes a bibliography and a helpful appendix touches on nine additional theological issues.

Across the Spectrum is a theology primer that all beginning theological students will want and need.

    I own this book and recommend it to people interested in the var

    I own this book and recommend it to people interested in the various doctrines that unite and divide denominations. The format is very helpful: it gives the positive argument and the negative argument for each doctrine, then you decide. Really forces you to think for yourself and not just be persuaded by hearing one side or the other. This is not a text book for a theologian, but an easy to read and understand source for the rest of us. Great resource!
