Exploring Christian Theology: Volume One

Exploring Christian theology Volume 1
In Exploring Christian Theology, Volume One: Revelation, Scripture, and the Triune God, Editors Nathan D. Holsteen and Michael J. Svigel tackle two fundamental doctrines of the Christian faith: the Inspiration of Scripture and The Trinity. Beginning with a brief discussion of creation and salvation before turning to the principle subject matter, they support their exposition with biblical passages and helpful illustrations. Designed to be accessible for any Christian at any stage of spiritual journey, Exploring Christian Theology is not an in-depth study, but a basic primer, complete with a brief background of each doctrine explained biblically and interpreted in its historical context.

Exploring Christian Theology: Volume One may not be a long book, but it is deserving of a slow read. In order to properly understand the concepts discussed, readers should take their time to absorb this complex information. The illustrations, charts, and graphs are invaluable and a list of resources available for further study is also included.

To their credit, Holsteen and Svigel explain these critical doctrines well. However, the weakness of this volume is that the essential emphasis of these two fundamental beliefs held throughout church history is somewhat outweighed by too much stress on personal application. All in all, Exploring Christian Theology, Volume One: Revelation, Scripture and the Triune God is a theologically sound resource for believers who are interested in deepening their under standing and confidence in the Christian faith.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
