Protestant Theology at the Crossroads examines contextual theology, in which particular cultural heritages, race and gender, 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 alter our theological perceptions? Sauter argues that dogmatics---properly understood as the process of theological reasoning that supports the life of the church---can and should be used as the tool to save theology. Dogmatics, he says, can break through pious isolationism and converge with genuine public theology, leading to the church's understanding of its own essence.
Gerhard Sauter is professor of systematic and ecumenical theology and director emeritus of the Ecumenical Institute in the Faculty of Protestant Theology at the University of Bonn, Germany.

"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.
