Product Description

Most systematic theologies are long, detailed works of over one thousand pages, or even multiple volumes. This book is a much briefer and more accessible systematic theology written from an evangelical Pentecostal/charismatic position. This book is ideal for college students and busy pastors who want to be aware of the Pentecostal charismatic positions on various doctrines, but who do not wish to wade through pages and pages of analyses and rebuttals. While author Larry Hart does not ignore other theological interpretations, he does not write detailed apologies against other points of view to defend his position. In a writing style that is easy to follow, with a practical pastoral flavor, Hart presents the structure of his systematic theology in a succinct, clear manner. This book includes both brief and detailed tables of contents.

Publisher's Description

"Larry Hart’s Truth Aflame brings together charismatic renewal and classic evangelical faith better than anything I have read. An important contribution to the contemporary renaissance in systematic theology!" Timothy George Dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University, Executive Editor of Christianity Today As the Pentecostal/charismatic movement continues to grow, so does the need for solid theological resources for its members. While there are many volumes of systematic theology available, very few are written from a distinctly charismatic perspective. Truth Aflame seeks to meet that need. While academically sound, Truth Aflame is written with a practical, pastoral flavor. Larry Hart defines systematic theology as the process of taking what the Bible teaches and relating it to contemporary questions and knowledge. His passion for the subject is evident: he is concerned that the reader both grasps the magnificence of the study of God and allows these great truths to be transformative. This Truth, then—liberating, enlivening, and transforming Truth—becomes central to the ongoing renewal of the church that we are seeing in our day. Dr. Hart treats each of the traditional categories—revelation, God, creation, humanity, sin, Christ, salvation, the church, and last things—from a Pentecostal/charismatic perspective. He addresses other theological viewpoints but does not get bogged down in analysis and rebuttal. Further, he seeks to build bridges of understanding to those evangelicals outside the charismatic tradition. Clear, succinct, and readable, this revised and updated edition of Truth Aflame is well-suited not only for students, but for anyone desiring a greater understanding of Pentecostal/charismatic theology.
