Product Description

This new edition of a successful textbook presents an accessible yet comprehensive primer that helps readers understand the breadth of viewpoints on major issues in evangelical theology, with chapters using the popular three- or four-views book format. Gregory Boyd and Paul Eddy carefully examine various positions taken by evangelical scholars on seventeen seminal issues. They lay out the biblical, theological, and philosophical arguments for each position in point-counterpoint fashion and discuss possible objections. Rather than taking sides, they give readers the resources they need to make up their own minds.

The second edition retains the helpful features of the first edition-end-of-chapter "For Further Reading" sections and an extensive glossary-and adds an appendix that addresses thirteen peripheral issues in contemporary evangelicalism.

Praise for the First Edition

“A collective sigh of relief will arise from the evangelical student body when it discovers this book! Across the Spectrum more than satisfies a felt need in evangelical scholarship. It helpfully and critically surveys the many legitimate evangelical theological options and convincingly demonstrates that there is no single authentically evangelical viewpoint on a wide range of controversial issues. It constitutes a small library between two covers.” —Roger E. Olson, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University

“Some people think that all evangelicals are alike. Greg Boyd and Paul Eddy have provided students with a brief handbook of current issues in evangelical theology that explodes that stereotype. They have written a helpful and authoritative guide to the wide range of evangelical opinion in theology today.” —Alan G. Padgett, Luther Seminary

“The authors have done a great service by bringing together in one volume an eminently useful summary of the main theological debates within evangelicalism. The chapters provide biblical and theological support for each position and demonstrate how each view answers the principle objections raised against it. The presentations are relevant, up-to-date, and incredibly evenhanded (no view is downplayed or criticized). Professors from all perspectives will find this work extremely helpful for introducing students to the issues in an unbiased manner. Beginners will benefit from the clear writing, glossary, and suggestions for further reading. This is a tremendous educational resource.” —John Sanders, Huntington College

“Christians who want to understand the differences of conviction that exist among evangelical theologians will profit greatly from Boyd and Eddy’s work. Boyd and Eddy demonstrate a fine knowledge of the major issues that divide evangelicals and offer a concise, evenhanded presentation of the options proposed. The book will enable readers to reach their own biblically informed conclusions on these issues, to understand better why other evangelicals disagree with them, and to identify the central truths that are mutually affirmed.” —Terry Tiessen, Providence Theological Seminary

“Those looking for a text that exemplifies the shades of difference and peculiar accents current in evangelical theology will find this book very useful. . . . Given the target reader as an undergraduate student, the strength of the book lies in its tone and format (debate as argument and rebuttal). . . . [It] exhibit[s] the potential for meaningful classroom engagement.” —Douglas R. Sharp, Review and Expositor

“At a time when some are tempted to mistake the white light of evangelical orthodoxy for a single band in the spectrum, Boyd and Eddy remind us just how colorful evangelical theology can be. The authors do what no book on the market does: In one volume they faithfully present divergent views on the crucial issues that divide evangelicals, and they do so in an unbiased, succinct, and lively manner. This book is perfect as a supplemental text in an introductory theology course or as a manual for church study groups. It will help everyone arrive at his or her own conclusions within the parameters of the evangelical tradition.” —Dennis Okholm, Azusa Pacific University

“I’ve been waiting for this book for some time. Due to its brief, nontechnical format, it can be used in a variety of ways in undergraduate theology courses. Although a concise volume, it succinctly outlines multiple arguments, both pro and con, for (incredibly!) over two dozen issues in disputed, largely non-fundamental areas of doctrine. The professor can present positions in favor of particular views or leave the issues open. I just found what I have needed for years.” —Gary R. Habermas, Liberty University

“Across the Spectrum succeeds with distinction in at least two respects. First, it represents a very useful tool for those who wish to begin grappling with different approaches to difficult theological problems. The book will be most helpful to beginning students in evangelical theology, the target audience. Second, the work presents various perspectives in fair and unbiased tones. . . . This well-written book is a helpful tool. If used with care, it will repeatedly reward the reader with its fair and even treatment of different theological views.” —Nathan D. Holsteen, Bibliotheca Sacra

    The book I was looking for. There are so many different views-I always wanted a book that listed the different views. This is that book. It list View A and the Scripture used to support it, and then list View B and the Scripture they use to support it. It is then up to you to study the scripture, and with Gods guidance decide which view you hold. Excellent!!!
