Historical, biblical, systematic, and practical—Integrative Theology helps students in a pluralistic world utilize a standard method of fruitful research. Originally a three volume set, this resource combines all three volumes, unabridged, into one. Each chapter covers a major doctrine, stating a classic issue of ultimate concern, surveying alternative past and present answers, and testing those proposals against the Bible. From here, each chapter formulates a doctrinal conclusion that consistently fits the many lines of biblical data, defends that conviction, and explores the conclusion’s relevance to spiritual growth and service to others.
In short, Integrative Theology weaves together the disciplines of historical, biblical, systematic, apologetic, and practical theology—all for the glory of God.
Integrative Theology is one of the most biblically reliable and faithful presentations of Christian theology from an evangelical perspective. . . . An absolutely unique contribution to evangelical systematic theology.
