Product Description

Emphasizing the beliefs common to all branches of Christendom rather than the issues that divide, Thomas Oden brings the full weight of two millennia of discussion to bear on the ever-contemporary questions of Christian faith.

His magisterial study not only treats the traditional elements of systematic theology, referencing hundreds of theologians - Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, charismatic - but also highlights the foundational exegetes of history. Broadly ecumenical in the truest sense of the word, and written from the perspective of a theological liberal-turned-evangelical, Oden's direct, frank, and provocative approach articulates the concerns of a broad spectrum of Christians - pastors, teachers, seminarians, and thoughtful laity.

Publisher's Description

Emphasizing the beliefs common to all branches of Christendom rather than the issues that divide, Thomas Oden brings the full weight of two millennia of discussion to bear on the ever-contemporary questions of Christian faith. His magisterial study not only treats the traditional elements of systematic theology, referencing hundreds of theologians—Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, charismatic—but also highlights the foundational exegetes of history. Broadly ecumenical in the truest sense of the word, and written from the perspective of a theological liberal-turned-evangelical, Oden's direct, frank, and provocative approach articulates the concerns of a broad spectrum of Christians—pastors, teachers, seminarians, and thoughtful laity.

Though comprehensive in scope, the set is arranged in a Trinitarian fashion with each volume focusing on one person of the godhead. The first volume explores the Christian understanding of God, creation and providence. The second volume discusses Christ and the Incarnation. The third volume considers the presence of the Holy Spirit in history, and his power in the lives and communities of present day believers.

• Volume 1: The Living God [ISBN 9781598560374]
• Volume 2: The Word of Life [ISBN 9781598560381]
• Volume 3: Life in the Spirit [ISBN 9781598560398]
These volumes may be purchased separately.

"Demonstrates a commitment of faithfulness to the scriptural teachings concerning Jesus and a rich appreciation for the classical and conciliar traditions of Christology."
Preaching

"Oden's project is anti-trendiness with a vengeance . . . refreshingly bold."
First Things

"The most impressive systematic exercise in ecumenical ’consensual thinking’ in print."
Religious Studies Review

"A welcome addition to the pastor's bookshelf and a needed voice in the contemporary theological conversation."
Interpretation

Author Bio

Thomas C. Oden is the Henry Anson Buttz Professor of Theology, Drew University, Madison, New Jersey.

Editorial Reviews

"Born in 1931 and, theologically, a former left-wing radical, Oden in the 1980s started to ground his theology in the study of the church fathers and the New Testament. It is in this spirit that he offered a three-volume Systematic Theology. First published in 1987/92, it is now offered as a reprint. One may describe Oden as an independently thinking evangelical theologian with a strong interest in basing ecumenical Christian teaching on the church fathers."
International Review of Biblical Studies

    I appreciate Oden's weight on the tried and true material rather than giving more weight to modern theologians. As theology should be, his work is grounded in the word!

    I am currently taking a Theology class, and Oden has given me great insight into how the Church Fathers viewed the doctrines he covers. I find this a refreshing work. He points his readers to read the Scriptures as the Church Fathers tried to do, "faith seeking understanding."

    Excellent resource for academic or devotional reading. This series is very well written. I started to highlight important thoughts and ideas and soon realized I was highlighting almost the entire text! This is well worth the investment.
