Dogmatic Theology, Vol. 8: The Church and the Sacramental System


Longman 1920

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The nature of the church and its system of sacraments has served as a source of controversy, division, and schism. In this volume, Hall outlines the doctrine of the church and explains its sacraments in order to further mutual understanding and overcome past conflict. This volume includes chapters on the mission and work of the Holy Spirit, the ministry of the church, the doctrine of grace, the doctrine of justification, and the role of the sacraments in the history of the Church. In this accessible and intelligible volume, Hall avoids abstractions and divisive terminology, and reminds readers of the primary purpose of the sacraments: outward signs of inward grace.

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.
