Presenting two dialoging essays on each of nine foremost theological questions, William Placher--the recipient of the American Academy of Religion's 2002 Award for Excellence in Teaching--has provided an unparalleled introductory reader in theology. Himself giving an excellent discussion of the history and current state of each doctrinal issue, he allows the essays to explore and raise questions about their key elements--and the contemporary issues confronting them.
A uniquely helpful resource for teaching and learning for theology classes in seminaries, colleges and universities, and congregations. Representing a range of Christian traditions and theological orientations in North America, these essays introduce the classic loci in Christian theology by engaging their readers in theological conversation and argument.
This splendid introductory textbook for Christian theology presents two essays by leading scholars on each of the major theological questions. William Placher provides an excellent discussion of the history and current state of each doctrine while the essays explore the key elements and contemporary issues relating to these important theological concepts.
William C. Placher was Charles D. and Elizabeth S. LaFollette Distinguished Professor in the Humanities and Chair of the Department of Philosophy and Religion at Wabash College in Crawfordsville, Indiana. He was the author or editor of a number of books including A History of Christian Theology, Jesus the Savior, and Essentials of Christian Theology, all published by WJK.
