Terry’s Biblical Dogmatics is his theological centerpiece. In three parts, Biblical Dogmatics delivers Christian doctrine central to the Bible. The first part, “The Constitution and Possibilities of Man,” exposes the nature of man, the purpose of morality, the causes of regeneration, and the purpose of faith. In the second part, “The Manifestation of the Christ,” Christological doctrines are revealed through an investigative study of the New Testament. And examining the God of the universe, “Our Father in Heaven” probes the head of the Trinity as God revealed himself to the nations, to the Hebrews, and eventually, through Christ.
