Defining the Nature, Process, and Mission of Dogmatic Discourse.

Theologians often discuss method in a remote and preliminary way that suggests they are not yet speaking theologically when speaking methodologically. But it is also possible to reflect on the work of Christian dogmatics in a way that is self-consciously nourished by biblical reasoning, resourced by tradition, joined up with ecclesial practice, and alert to spiritual dynamics.

Bringing together theologians who are actively engaged in the writing and editing of extended dogmatics projects, The Task of Dogmatics represents the proceedings of the 2017 Los Angeles Theology Conference and seeks to provide constructive accounts of the nature of the dogmatic task.

The eleven diverse essays in this collection include discussions on:

  • Identifying theology's pattern and norm.
  • The validity and relativity of doctrinal statements.
  • The Apostle Paul and the task of dogmatics.
  • The retrieval of patristic and medieval theology.
  • Each of the essays collected in this volume engage with Scripture as well as with others in the field--theologians both past and present, from different confessions--in order to provide constructive resources for contemporary systematic theology and to forge a theology for the future.

    Petrus van Mastricht's Theoretical and Practical Theology presents one of the most comprehensive methods of treating Christian doctrine. In it, Mastricht treats every theological topic according to a four-part approach: exegetical, dogmatic, elenctic, and practical. As a body of divinity, it combines a rigorous, scholastic treatment of doctrine with the pastoral aim of preparing people to live for God through Christ. Students and pastors will find it a valuable model for moving from the text of Scripture to doctrinal formulation that will edify the people of God.

    Volume 1, Prolegomena, provides an introduction to doing systematic theology. Mastricht begins by addressing the nature of theology, wherein he lays out the proper method, subject matter, and definition of theology. He then discusses Scripture as the rule of doing theology, as it is the only infallible source and foundation for knowing God. Finally, Mastricht gives his rationale for the best distribution of theological topics. This volume also includes Mastricht's homiletical aid "The Best Method of Preaching," as well as a biographical sketch by Adriaan Neele to help readers understand the significance of Mastricht's life and ministry.

    For several years two groups of dispensationalists, commonly known by the terms traditionalists and progressives, have engaged in an ongoing debate centered around three crucial issues: 1. The interpretation of Scripture. What rules of hermeneutics our understanding of Scripture? 2. The Abrahamic, Davidic, and new covenants. To whom do these covenants apply and how are they fulfilled or yet to be fulfilled? 3. Israel and the church. How are we to understand the present relationship and future destiny of these two peoples of God? In an irenic debate format, this book demonstrates that those on either side of the issues care deeply about Scripture and its meaning. Each (contributor) should be given credit for a congenial and helpful contribution to the dispensational discussion.

    In this book Pentecostal theologian Veli-Matti Karkkainen develops a constructive theology of triune revelation and the triune God in dialogue with Christian tradition, with contemporary theology in its global and contextual diversity, and with other major living faiths.
    Karkkainen's Constructive Christian Theology for the Pluralistic World is a five-volume project that aims to develop a new approach to and method of doing Christian theology in a pluralistic world at the beginning of the third millennium. With the metaphor of hospitality serving as the framework for his discussion, Karkkainen engages Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and Hinduism in sympathetic and critical mutual dialogue while remaining robustly Christian in his convictions. Never before has a fullscale doctrinal theology been attempted in such a wide and deep dialogical mode.

    A Development of the Doctrine of Scripture and Its Interpretation.

    In the case of engaging with Scripture in a way that allows it to speak to us we have a theological mandate to develop a doctrine of Scripture that recognizes both the written text and its divine authorship.

    The proceedings of the fourth annual Los Angeles Theology Conference focuses on the theological and doctrinal dimensions to the biblical texts, drawing on scholars of biblical studies and systematic theology in order to do so. The question that frames these discussions is, How does the voice of God come to us in the text of Scripture?

    The ten diverse essays in this collection include discussions on:

  • Authorial intent.
  • The reception and formation of the Bible as Christian Scripture.
  • The relationship between Scripture and human identity.
  • The hermeneutics of metaphor and theological method.
  • Each of the essays collected in this volume engage with Scripture as well as with others in the field--theologians both past and present, from different confessions--in order to provide constructive resources for contemporary systematic theology and to forge a theology for the future.

    Does New Testament theology rightly deal with the documents of the New Testament or with something outside the text, such as the unfolding of early Christian religion, the events of salvation history, the historical Jesus in particular, or an understanding of human existence? Is New Testament theology a strictly historical project, a dialectical interaction between historical interpretation and hermeneutical concerns, or solely a hermeneutical program? This lucidly written volume by a prominent New Testament theologian not only describes how New Testament theology has been and is being done, but provides critiques of the major approaches from the past century. Especially important are his discussions of Rudolf Bultmann, Hendrikus Boers, N. T. Wright, and postmodernism. Beyond critique, Via offers his own proposals for doing New Testament theology.

    Dispensationalism continues to provoke heated debate within the Christian world.

    Highly acclaimed theologian Dr. Charles C. Ryrie addresses this crucial issue from the perspective of classic dispensationalism. He confronts the views of covenant theology, historical premillennialism, ultradispensationalism, and in this revised edition, the increasingly popular progressive dispensationalism.

    In his best-selling book, Dispensationalism Today, written more than 50 years ago, Dr. Ryrie made this complex subject more understandable for thousands worldwide. This revised and expanded version of that book will prove to be an invaluable reference tool for your library.
