Theological Retrieval for Evangelicals

Why We Need Our Past to Have a Future
  • By Gavin Ortlund

Product Description

Evangelicalism is not commonly known for mining the rich theological heritage handed down from previous generations. Instead, it tends to follow what, in the worst cases, can look like a "me and my Bible" approach to theology. But lately there has been a restlessness among evangelicals--an aching for theological rootedness that has led some to abandon Protestantism altogether. This book aims to set forth a vision for how engaging historical theology can enrich and strengthen the church today--and highlight how it can be done without abandoning a Protestant identity. By addressing two key doctrines--the doctrines of God and the atonement--and drawing from neglected theologians--Boethius, Gregory the Great, and John of Damascus--this book charts a course for evangelicals eager to draw from the past to meet the challenges of the present.
