Overview

Donald G. Bloesch has been praised as "one of the English world's foremost evangelical theologians." and his systematic theology (Christian Foundations) called the "evangelical summa of the twentieth century." His constructive theology emphasizes basing Christian life and thought on revelation while avoiding rationalism. Profoundly biblically grounded, it creatively draws on Calvin and Luther, neo-orthodox thinkers such as Barth and Brunner, pietism, and modern evangelicals such as P. T. Forsyth and James Denney.

Bloesch's work is sure to influence theology well into the twenty-first century. This volume begins in earnest the assessment of Bloesch's labors. Covering many of the basic loci of systematic theology, and with essays by several leading theologians of the day, plus a response by Professor Bloesch), Evangelical Theology in Transition itself constitutes a superb demonstration of evangelicalism come of age, and at its finest.
