Protestant Theology at the Crossroads: How to Face the Crucial Tasks for Theology in the Twenty-First Century
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 26 apr. 2007 - 188 pagini
Crucial tasks face protestant theology in its currently critical state. Challenged with growing skepticism and discouragement, what hope has theology for the future, and what sources might deliver this hope? Gerhard Sauter sets himself to help theology answer critical questions and accomplish essential tasks in order to move forward with hope."Protestant Theology at the Crossroads" examines contextual theology, in which particular cultural heritages, race and gender, and economic conditions and the structure of social life inform the teachings of the faith rather than vice versa. How, for example, do we approach the crisis in American self-understanding caused by terrorism? Do changes in European politics change our theological perceptions?Drawing on the Warfield Lectures at Princeton in March 2000 -- at which many of these chapters were presented originally -- "Protestant Theology" does more than provide a much-needed overall explanation of the issues theology faces. It also contains basic information on the foundation of theology, hermeneutics, Christian ethics, many central doctrinal topics, and much more. This book is a vital text for those studying theology, involved in ministry, and training future church leaders.
