3046AN INTRODUCTION TO CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY

Richard J. Plantinga, Thomas R. Thompson,Matthew D. Lundberg

Inviting readers on a journey of 'faith seeking understanding', this introduction to Christian theology - its basic concepts, confessional content, and history - emphasizes the relevance of the key convictions of Christian faith to the challenges of today's world. In the first part, this book introduces the project of Christian theology and sketches the critical context that confronts Christian thought and practice today.

In a second part, it offers a survey of the key doctrinal themes of Christian theology - including revelation, the triune God, and the world as creation - identifying their biblical basis and the highlights of their historical development before giving a systematic evaluation of each theme. The third part provides an overview of Christian theology from the early church to the present.

CHURCH IN ORDINARY TIME: A Wisdom Ecclesiology

Amy Plantinga Pauw

Pauw presents a compact Trinitarian ecclesiology that is attuned to church life in this era of ordinary time. Formal ecclesiologies have neglected this ordinary- time dimension of Christian life, she says, and in so doing have virtually ignored the ongoing graciousness of God's work as Creator.

Drawing on the seasons of the church year and the creation theology elaborated in Job, Proverbs, and Ecclesiastes, Pauw offers wisdom for daily life in Christian communities of faith.
