Overview

What is Christian doctrine? The fourteen specially commissioned essays in this book serve to give an answer to many aspects of that question. Written by leading theologians from America and Britain they place doctrine in its setting--what it has been historically, and how it relates to other forms of culture--and outline central features of its content. New readers will find this an accessible and stimulating introduction to the main themes of Christian doctrine, while advanced students and specialists will find a useful summary of recent developments in Christian thought.
