For fifteen years Millard Erickson's Christian Theology has been used widely as a reliable and comprehensive introduction to systematic theology. Now this classic text has been revised and updated to take into consideration changes in the theological world as well as changes in the intellectual, political, economic, and social worlds.
While retaining the accessibility of the original volume, Erickson has taken into account input from professors, students, and reviewers and added several sections, a new chapter on postmodernism, chapter objectives, chapter summaries, and study questions.
The central theme of Christian Theology is the magnificence of God. By this the author refers to the greatness of God in terms of his power, knowledge, and other traditional 'natural attributes,' as well as excellence and splendor. Writes Erickson, "Theology as well as life needs to be centered on the great living God, rather than on the human creature."
Millard J. Erickson is distinguished professor of theology at Truett Seminary and at Western Seminary, Portland. He is the author of numerous works, including Christian Theology, God in Three Persons, and The Word Became Flesh.
