"As a contributor to the Theology for the People of God series, I am delighted to recommend this introductory volume, A Handbook of Theology. In about a dozen pages for each topic, this readily accessible volume ranges widely over theology and its method and history, core doctrines, and Christian living and cultural engagement. From responsible handling of biblical affirmations on nearly fifty topics, to tracing their development historically, and including practical counsel for their application, this Handbook is a comprehensive guide that will be consulted many times and on many occasions."
Gregg R. Allison, professor of theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"This is a book you can confidently place in the hands of church leaders and students to introduce them to an array of different kinds of theology (biblical theology, historical theology, and so forth), and especially to an outline of systematic theology. Most of the contributors have sought to forge connections between their respective chapters and the life and vitality of the church. Confessionally, the work is conservative and baptistic but will doubtless serve readers from a wide range of backgrounds."
D. A. Carson, theologian-at-large, The Gospel Coalition
"This handbook successfully addresses a wide range of subjects: theological foundations, theology, history, geography, doctrines, Christian living, and engagement with culture. The chapters are short enough to be digestible but long enough to inform. The essays are very competently written by scholars and practitioners in their fields. Both men and women as well as younger scholars and seasoned theologians are contributors to this very readable and worthy volume."
Graham A. Cole, dean emeritus, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and emeritus principal, Ridley College
"A massive work. So much here to read, enjoy, immerse yourself in, and use as teaching tools for others. Let no one say Baptists dont know how to do theology!"
Josh Moody, senior pastor, College Church in Wheaton, and president, God Centered Life Ministries
"This handbook treats classic and contemporary topics in theology in a way that is biblically faithful, ecclesially rooted, and solidly evangelical. Written by both leading and emerging Baptist scholars, the chapters are insightful, succinct, edifying, and timely. The editors are to be commended for this significant achievement."
Christopher W. Morgan, dean and professor of theology at the School of Christian Ministries, California Baptist University
"In a day when theology as the queen of the sciences has been challenged, A Handbook of Theology joyfully reminds us of the enduring power and proper place of theology in Christian discourse. In this remarkable guide, dozens of respected theologians have laid a proper foundation of the broad contours of Christian theology, upon which a lifetime of study can be built. I heartily recommend it."
Timothy C. Tennent, president and professor of World Christianity, Asbury Theological Seminary
