Evangelical Theology Video Lectures, a companion to the textbook Evangelical Theology by Michael Bird, presents a unique approach to systematic theology that contends that the center, unity, and boundary of the evangelical faith is the evangel, or gospel, as opposed to doctrines like justification by faith or inerrancy.
The evangel is the unifying thread in evangelical theology and the theological hermeneutic through which the various loci of theology need to be understood. Thus, these lectures present an approach to Christian theology that begins with the gospel and sees each area of doctrine through the lens of the gospel.
An antidote to presentations of theology that are dry and cerebral, Evangelical Theology Video Lectures is filled with vibrant illustrations and Bird’s distinctive sense of humor that will keep viewers engaged as they learn the foundational doctrines of the Christian faith.
In short, these lectures present a truly evangelical theology, one focused on performing and living out the gospel in the theatre of Christian life, and represent an ideal way for beginning students and laypeople to explore theology.
