Dogmatic Theology, Vol. 1: Introduction


Longman 1907

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Volume One of Hall’s 10-volume Dogmatic Theology begins his treatment of the entire range of Christian doctrine. He devotes significant attention to the task of devising a systematic theology, since devising a structure of theology is itself a profound act of theological reflection. Hall also summarizes the history of theological literature by outlining the long tradition of theological inquiry—the key thinkers and events which have shaped the faith we have inherited.

This volume also defines the parameters of Hall’s theological project and serves as an introduction to his method. In particular, Hall writes at length about sources of knowledge, including the relationship between theology and the liberal arts, between theology and science, and between theology and reason. Hall’s introduction to Dogmatic Theology contained in this volume fills a particular gap in Anglican theology and grounds the remainder of Hall’s theological enterprise.
