Though Volume 3 is the first of the three to be published, it sets a high standard for the two forthcoming books. By combining scripture, history, and self-study, the authors have provided a very usable theology - accessible to the scholar, the student, and the layman.
As hinted at above, each theological topic includes the “primary biblical texts, a history of each main teaching, relevant charts and graphs, practical implications, and suggestions” for future study. The historical section includes both an historical exploration and a set of extended quotations from the primary sources that have spoken on the topic - including the church fathers, the historical figures that have founded the major theological streams found in the 21st century church, and more contemporary theological spokesmen.
I will be looking forward to the remaining two volumes in this series.
