Overview

Evangelical theology is a burgeoning field. Evangelicals have been growing in numbers and prominence worldwide, and the rise to academic prominence of evangelical historians, scripture scholars, ethicists, and theologians—many of whom have changed the face of their disciplines—has demonstrated the growing maturity of this movement's intellectual leaders. This volume surveys the state of the discipline on topics of greatest importance to evangelical theology. Each chapter has been written by a theologian or scholar who is widely recognized for his or her published work and is considered a leading thinker on that particular topic. The authors critically assess the state of the question, from both classical and evangelical traditions, and propose a future direction for evangelical thinking on the subject.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is a book of wide-ranging essays on the current state of evangelical theology, with contributions by a who's who of evangelical theology and practice (from Alistair McGrath and Scot McKnight to Dallas Willard and Howard Snyder). It is the rare reference book that is accessible and relevant."—Mark Galli, Christianity Today

"Suffice it to say in a short note that this volume easily assumes pride of place as the starting point for those interested in the state-of-the-question regarding evangelical theology...Kudos to the editor for this major achievement!"—Religious Studies Review

"Almost every entry is as fresh as it is erudite...this volume on the whole is well worth Lutheran attention."—Lutheran Quarterly
