Description

"In making introductions, first impressions count: according to a Harvard study it takes only seven seconds to size up a new acquaintance. Introducing Evangelical Theology makes a good impression in the first seven pages, where we meet a movement that is equally concerned with intellectual, moral, and spiritual formation; ecumenically orthodox and rooted in the great creeds; yet distinctly Protestant in its insistence that the gospel retain its glorious freedom to renew and reform. This is not simply an introduction to but an education in evangelical theology, and one to which I will be enthusiastically introducing students for years to come."
--Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

"Real faith seeks deeper understanding, and when it does, it inevitably reaches out for help. This book is that help. Treier has produced a tool for training the evangelical mind and for training the mind evangelically. Introducing Evangelical Theology is an instrument of catechesis designed for our times."
--Fred Sanders, Torrey Honors Institute, Biola University

"Treier offers a truly remarkable combination of Scripture, tradition, ethics, doctrine, historic debates, and contemporary challenges as he explores one essential topic after another. I know this book's pages will be dog-eared and its binding worn by many a college student, pastor, graduate student, and academic, for whom it will quickly become an invaluable and treasured resource."
--Kristen Deede Johnson, Western Theological Seminary

"Treier has produced a richly textured work that is at once ecumenical, Protestant, and evangelical in the best sense of the words. Further, by framing it within the three components of the traditional catechism, Treier connects modern evangelicals to their ancient heritage. Here is a book that I will readily recommend for introductory courses in systematic theology."
--Simon Chan, editor of Asia Journal of Theology

"What a great teacher! Treier is a master of summarizing the expansive, explaining the complicated, and highlighting the central. Here we encounter an invitation to experience the breadth of the Christian tradition while standing within the best of the spirit of evangelical theology. This volume will surely be a great gift to a generation of readers."
--Kelly M. Kapic, Covenant College
