Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School
We live in a day of cloudy thinking about the most important matters of life. What is needed is meat but along with instructions about how to use a fork. In this series, Chris and Robert help us understand difficult doctrines by being both biblically faithful and culturally accessible. I highly recommend this series to all who want to know, love, and worship our great God.

Robert Peterson and Chris Morgan have put together an elegant and edifying series of books for the Theology in Community series. This series tackles some big and juicy topics on theology, ranging from kingdom to suffering to sin to glory. They have recruited some of the best theological thinkers in the world to explain what it means to have a 'faith seeking understanding' in our contemporary age. The volumes are full of solid teaching in biblical, historical, systematic, and practical theologies and contain a wealth of immense learning. A valuable resource for any thinking Christian.
