Dogmatic Theology, Vol. 5: Creation and Man


Longman 1912

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Volume Five of Hall’s Dogmatic Theology addresses the increasingly tense relationship between theology and the natural sciences, as well as the rise and popularity of the theory of evolution. Hall shows how theological and natural sciences deal with different forms of knowledge—theology treats divine aspects of reality, while science is concerned with the physical and phenomenal aspects. This volume develops a model for the relationship between theology and science which can benefit both.

This volume borrows heavily from Evolution and the Fall, also included in this collection.

Praise for the Print Edition

The author’s learning and wide reading are as conspicuous throughout the book as is his fidelity to the point of view…

Journal of Theological Studies

Dr. Hall is eminently qualified for the task he has undertaken…his style may be commended as a model of theological writing in English. It is clear, concise, direct, dignified, and elegant.
