2022 Southwestern Journal of Theology Book of the Year

The church has been entrusted with God’s revelation—and to steward the word of truth, we must confess the Bible’s teaching with clarity and conviction. Adam Harwood’s Christian Theology is both biblically faithful and historically informed, providing a fresh synthesis of the essential doctrines of the faith. Writing from a Baptist perspective, Harwood brings fresh insights that many systematic theologies lack.

With readable prose, suggestions for further study, and discussion questions, Christian Theology will equip students and pastors to clarify and articulate what they believe and why.

Praise for Christian Theology

This generation of evangelicals and Baptists has long required a new and widely trusted single-author systematic theology. Adam Harwood now steps forward to fill the gap with his aptly named Christian Theology: Biblical, Historical, and Systematic. I am elated to endorse this careful, learned, and broad-based exemplar of Christian orthodoxy for use in the classroom, in the pastor’s study, and in the academically-inclined layperson’s library.

–Malcolm B. Yarnell, research professor of theology, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

This volume will serve as a very informative introduction to evangelical Christian belief from a Baptist perspective for students of theology as well as for pastors and interested laypeople.

–Roger E. Olson, emeritus professor of Christian theology, Baylor University

Systematic theology is happily resurgent right now in evangelical circles, and this volume is the latest notable proof of that. It is firmly orthodox on first order matters of faith and doctrine, while more exploratory on matters that Scripture and tradition leave open for further analysis and speculation. This is a great text to ground students in the substance of the faith while also informing them of the contemporary state of the discussion.

–Jerry L. Walls, professor of philosophy & scholar in residence, Houston Baptist University

I warmly welcome Adam Harwood’s Christian Theology. He presents an exemplary methodology of Christian theology: biblical, historical, and systematic. This methodology is a legacy of the Reformation and historical Baptist churches. Throughout this work, Harwood provides a catholic and evangelical theology based on sound exegetical and historical interpretations of major doctrinal issues in modern Christianity. Readers will appreciate Harwood’s willingness to learn from the views that even contradict his own view on a particular issue. I hope that God will use this work for the expansion of his kingdom. I am delighted to recommend this book to my Korean and other international students.

—Dongsun Cho, assistant professor of systematic theology, Korea Baptist Theological Seminary and University

    Dr. Harwood did an excellent job of presenting the multiple views of the major doctrines Christians contemplate today. He applied a unique method for his chapter on the doctrine of salvation. In his words, their is no shortage of systematics on bookshelves today espousing the reformed/Calvinist view on the subject. He instead wanted to offer the "Traditional Statement" perspective affirmed by several former presidents of the SBC in order to ensure the perspective had a place on the bookshelves of theologians. He does offer opposing views and quotes in his meant for reading, detailed footnotes. I appreciate Dr. Harwood's effort and am more than excited to recommend this work to all who want to give our varied doctrines fair treatment in their studies.
