What is Christian doctrine? The 14 commissioned essays in this book serve to give an answer to many aspects of that question. Written by theologians from America and Britain they place doctrine in its setting - what it has been historically, and how it relates to other forms of culture and outline central features of its content. They attempt to answer questions such as what has, and does, Christian doctrine teach about God, the creation, the human condition and human behaviour? and what is the part played in Christian doctrine by the Trinity, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit?
