Overview

Dallas Seminary professors Nathan Holsteen and Michael Svigel are passionate about the key doctrines of Christianity. They want readers to know why they are important and why they matter. Holsteen and Svigel explore these important topics in a concise and highly readable style that makes sense--whether you're a student of the Bible, a pastor, or someone who simply wants to know God better.

Exploring Christian Theology offers introductions, overviews, and reviews of key orthodox, protestant, evangelical tenents without belaboring details or broiling up debates. These three volumes, compact but substantial, provide accessible and convenient summaries of major themes. They are intended as guidebooks for a church that, overall, is starving for the very doctrine it has too long avoided.

For each topic you will find:

  • An introduction, overview, and review of the key points
  • Several applicable Bible texts, including verses to memorize
  • A quick-paced history of the doctrine
  • Distortions to be aware of and avoid
  • Reading lists for further study
  • A glossary of theological terms

In the Logos editions, these volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Learn about sanctification in Christian theology with Sanctified by Grace.

Praise for the Print Edition

There has never been a more urgent need, because of the times in which we live, to have a biblically based statement of Christian theology. Holsteen and Svigel are both qualified to write such an exploration since their lives have been shaped by biblical teaching, and it is this teaching that prompts others to the hope only God through His Word can provide.

Mark L. Bailey, president, Dallas Theological Seminary

Exploring Christian Theology is a wonderful doctrinal primer that teaches theology in a way that will engage you and cause you to reflect. . . . A great way to get acquainted with key biblical theological themes.

Darrell Bock, senior Research professor, Dallas Theological Seminary

The Exploring Christian Theology series provides a wonderfully helpful tour of basic Christian beliefs. Nathan Holsteen and Michael Svigel have put together a unique way of teaching theology that is thoroughly biblical but also highly engaging. A good resource for pursuing Christian discipleship.

Michael F. Bird, lecturer in Theology, Ridley Melbourne Mission and Ministry College

Most theological texts seem to use doctrine as a sleep aid. Dull and dry, these books hide the truth behind the reader's yawn. How refreshing to read Exploring Christian Theology! With an appropriate balance of readability, clarity, and humor, Drs. Holsteen and Svigel have made the key doctrines of our Christian faith accessible--without compromising orthodoxy. Truth should never leave us yawning. This book makes me want more.

—Wayne Stiles, executive vice president, Insight for Living
