Traditionally, systematic theology has been structured around the Creed’s articles—an approach that, though beneficial, still has its flaws. In this traditional approach, it’s easy to lose sight of Christian worship’s theological roots, and discussions become abstract.
John Colwell provides a short, inspiring introduction to a systematic theology built around the worshipful rhythms of the Christian Year. His approach is explicitly rooted in the liturgical rhythm, weaving Christian worship, theology, and discipleship into a seamless garment.
