Evangelical theology has become more academically engaged, aware of global Christianity, and interested in the Great Tradition, yet is increasingly fragmented. This introductory textbook for evangelical colleges, universities, and seminaries offers students a biblically rich, creedally structured, ecumenically evangelical, and ethically engaged introduction to Christian theology.

Daniel Treier, coeditor of the popular Evangelical Dictionary of Theology, is on the cutting edge of evangelical theological scholarship. In this volume, he discusses key Scripture passages, explains Christian theology within the structure of the Nicene Creed, explores the range of evangelical approaches to contested doctrines, acquaints evangelicals with other views (including Orthodox and Catholic), and integrates theological ethics with chapters on the Ten Commandments and the Lord's Prayer. The result is a meaty but manageable introduction to the convictions and arguments shaping contemporary evangelical theology.
