Overview

A Theology for the Church

The revised edition of A Theology for the Church retains its original structure, organized under these traditional theological categories: revelation, God, humanity, Christ, the Holy Spirit, salvation, the church, and last things.

Each chapter within these sections contains answers to the following four questions: What does the Bible say? What has the church believed? How does it all fit together? How does this doctrine impact the church today?

Contributions from leading Baptist thinkers R. Albert Mohler, Jr., Paige Patterson, and Mark Dever among others will also appeal to the broader evangelical community. Included in this revision are new chapters on theological method from a missional perspective (Bruce Ashford and Keith Whitfield) and theology of creation, providence, and Sabbath that engages current research in science and philosophy (Chad Owen Brand). Chapters on special revelation (David Dockery) and human nature (John Hammett) have also been updated.

A Theology for the church edited by Daniel Akin is a single volume systematic theology of biblical doctrine. The volume is laid out like many other systematic theologies with eight sections and fourteen chapters covering the following: The Doctrine of Revelation, The Doctrine of God, The Doctrine of Humanity, The Doctrine of Christ, the Doctrine of the Holy Spirit, the Doctrine of Salvation, the Doctrine of the Church, and the Doctrine of Last Things. Also, the volume contains contributions from fourteen different theologians Russell Moore, Timothy George, Al Mohler and many others. Each chapter addresses the following four questions in the following order: What does the Bible say?, What has the Church believed?, How does it all fit together? and How does this doctrine impact the church today? For example, in the end of the first section answering the question how this doctrine impacts the church today talks about how a theology of general revelation means that we can work with other of good will on matters of political or social or political justice, even if they do not share our Christian faith. I cannot recommend A Theology for the Church highly enough. This book on the whole is very well written. It is in a format that is accessible by most people. It is an outstanding addition to the growing number of books committed to teaching systematic theology. Readers will be challenged and stretched; spiritual growth will no doubt occur as they go over the many pages of this book. *I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
