Product Description

The first English translation of the introduction to Christian doctrine most widely used in Germany

In this book Wilfried Harle so distills Protestant Christian teaching as to bring fresh insight both to new students and to experienced readers of systematic theology. Outline of Christian Doctrine, however, is not merely a translation of Harle's classic German text: Nicholas Sagovsky has also entirely adapted the original work to the needs and resources of English-speaking readers.

Biblically rooted, contextually sensitive, alert to philosophical issues, and relevant with respect to debates about the world as we know it today, Harle's Outline of Christian Doctrine: An Evangelical Dogmatics is an ideal contemporary theology book for both class use and individual study.

Editorial Reviews

John Webster in Theology
"This is a work of seasoned and penetrating theological intelligence, and attentive readers will be given much food for thought."

Christoph Schwöbel
— University of Tübingen
"This English edition of Härle's Dogmatics, carefully adapted to doing systematic theology in English-speaking contexts, makes the book more widely accessible with all its strengths — commitment to the biblical witnesses, conceptual clarity, and ability to bridge the academy, church, and wider society. . . . Provides an excellent example of what an exposition of Christian doctrine should be in the twenty-first century."

Daniel Jeyaraj
— Liverpool Hope University
"The surpassing clarity of the text, its evangelical and intellectual loyalty to the Bible and trinitarian theology, its adherence to the essence of the gospel, and its honest answers to difficult questions all make this inspiring book indispensable for students of theology and mission studies who seek to understand Christian doctrines in a systematic manner."

Stephen Plant
— University of Cambridge
"A wonderfully clear introduction to Christian theology that will prove as valuable to English-speaking students and teachers as it has been to German speakers. . . . This translation does full justice to the original — a remarkable achievement. English-speaking theology still has a lot to learn from German theologians."

    Great Theology.

    This mini Systematic Theology is excellent. Professor Harle is a deep thinker, something He shares with many other German Theologians. Every area is given a insightful over view and He has many penetrating insights and gets to the heart of the matter often. One thing about these Continental Scholars. They have and are heirs of the European Enlightenment, and have wrestled with all of Modernity's critiques of Christianity, and come out the other side, bloody, but unbowed. Its a shame that their insights and views are not more widely know here in North America. But books like this, are a good start in that direction. Facile Atheism(s) of the likes of Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris, would have no bearings on the real thought out views of God and the Divine, that you find in books like this one. Harle writes in the shadow of European Atheism of the likes of Freud, Nietzsche, and Marx. Serious and well thought out Atheism. I would have loved to have gone to a Divinity School, and learned under a thinker like Wilfried Harle. Great book. Highly recommended.
