Individual Titles

The Christian Doctrine of Salvation

  • Author: George Barker Stevens
  • Publisher: Charles Scribner’s Sons
  • Publication Date: 1917
  • Pages: 546

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The Christian Doctrine of Salvation presents a biblical, historical, and constructive discussion of the Christian doctrine of salvation. This theme is regarded and treated primarily as a subject of investigation. Stevens approaches it from the historical side, states the problems to be considered, and defines his positions respecting them in a historical and inductive method. He reviews the various opinions regarding the doctrine and the fundamental Christian concepts of God and man. He divides his study of salvation into three parts:

  • The Biblical Basis of the Doctrine
  • The Principal Forms of the Doctrine
  • Constructive Development of the Doctrine

The Teaching of Jesus

  • Author: George Barker Stevens
  • Publisher: The Macmillan Company
  • Publication Date: 1918
  • Pages: 190

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The aim of The Teaching of Jesus is to clarify the meaning of Christ’s life and work by setting forth the principles of his teaching clearly, succinctly, and systematically. Stevens translates Jesus’ thought into modern terms and correlates the different elements of his teaching to exhibit that teaching’s inner unity. Stevens also compares Christ’s sayings with the Jewish religious ideas of his age in order to exhibit the historical backdrop against which his teaching was presented and, thus, to bring out into clearer relief its striking independence and originality.

The Theology of the New Testament

  • Author: George Barker Stevens
  • Publisher: T&T Clark
  • Publication Date: 1906
  • Pages: 617

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The aim of The Theology of the New Testament is to set forth, in systematic form, the doctrinal contents of the New Testament according to its natural divisions. Brief explanations of controversial New Testament readings appear in several introductory chapters. Stevens divides his study of the New Testament into seven parts:

  • The Teaching of Jesus according to the Synoptic Gospels
  • The Teaching of Jesus according to the Fourth Gospel
  • The Primitive Apostolic Teaching
  • The Theology of Paul
  • The Theology of the Epistle to the Hebrews
  • The Theology of the Apocalypse
  • The Theology of John

Doctrine and Life

  • Author: George Barker Stevens
  • Publisher: Silver, Burdett & Company
  • Publication Date: 1895
  • Pages: 247

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The aim of Doctrine and Life is to present the principal doctrines of Christianity in their correlation with the Christian life. These doctrines have therefore been approached from the point of view of the Christian consciousness, rather than philosophy or criticism. Stevens’ main question is not, How might the Christian philosopher justify the belief under review? nor, How might the biblical scholar elaborate and defend it? But, What is the adaptation of the given doctrine to the needs of the soul, and its use in the Christian life? How is its truth attested in experience? It will thus be seen that, while the volume deals with the subject matter of theology, it differs considerably in its aim from theoretical treatises on Christian doctrine. It rather illustrates the value of certain fundamental doctrines for Christian thought, life, and character.

The Johannine Theology

  • Author: George Barker Stevens
  • Publisher: Charles Scribner’s Sons
  • Publication Date: 1894
  • Pages: 387

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

No type of New Testament teaching has more of individuality than the Johannine; none has characteristics at once more marked and more difficult to define. The peculiarities of John’s thought elude exact description. They are felt by all attentive readers, but they almost defy the effort to deduce from them the modes and laws of the writer’s own thinking upon the great themes of religion. The aim of The Johannine Theology is to present, in systematic form, the theological contents of the Gospel and Epistles of John. Stevens divides his study of Johannine theology into 15 parts:

  • The Peculiarities of John’s Theology
  • The Relation of John’s Theology to the Old Testament
  • The Idea of God in the Writings of John
  • The Doctrine of the Logos
  • The Union of the Son with the Father
  • The Doctrine of Sin
  • The Work of Salvation
  • The Doctrine of the Holy Spirit
  • The Appropriation of Salvation
  • The Origin and Nature of the Spiritual Life
  • The Doctrine of Love
  • The Doctrine of Prayer
  • The Doctrine of Eternal Life
  • The Johannine Eschatology
  • The Theology of John and of Paul Compared

The Pauline Theology

  • Author: George Barker Stevens
  • Publisher: Charles Scribner’s Sons
  • Publication Date: 1892
  • Pages: 383

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

The aim of The Pauline Theology is to inquire into the genesis of Paul’s leading thoughts, so far as their origin may be the subject of historical inquiry, to define critically their content and relation to each other, and thus to present a systematic account of his teaching upon the great themes which he considers. The study aids in determining how far that set of convictions which Paul so firmly cherished and defended may be regarded as furnishing the materials for a theological system. Stevens divides his study of Pauline theology into 13 parts:

  • The Conversion of Paul and Its Relation to His Mission and Theology
  • Paul’s Style and Modes of Thought
  • The Shaping Forces of Paul’s Teaching
  • The Sources of Pauline Doctrine
  • The Doctrine of God
  • The Doctrine of Sin
  • The Doctrine of the Law
  • The Person of Christ
  • The Doctrine of Redemption
  • The Doctrine of Justification
  • The Christian Life
  • The Doctrine of the Church
  • The Pauline Eschatology
