Overview

Called to Believe, Teach, and Confess offers an overview of the major doctrines of Christianity in a comprehensive, but accessible way. Written from a Lutheran perspective, this book is a helpful resource to those within that tradition and to others who seek a deeper theological understanding. Firmly rooted in Scripture, this book emphasizes the interrelatedness of all Christian teaching, with its central teaching being the doctrine of justification by grace through faith in Jesus Christ.

This book is ideal as a text for university students and other educated Christian adults who seek to expand their knowledge of God's revelation and its application in human lives. It introduces and uses classical theological vocabulary and terminology, while offering clear definitions and application. Key terms, study questions, glossary, and sidebars help make this a valuable resource. Suggested readings from Scripture, the Lutheran Confessions and other secondary sources guide the reader into deeper study.

The idea of getting through nearly 600 pages of text for an eight-week course was a bit overwhelming. The first couple of chapters contained a lot of unfamiliar theological terminology (the Glossary was very helpful). Once I got beyond those first chapters, it started getting intersting and by the time I made it to chapter 11, I started having a hard time putting the book down. We could have completed our Biblical Theology course without an instructor - the informationn was that clear. I hope we use one of the other textbooks in the series for a future course.
