Reflecting the diversity yet richness of the global church, these three volumes edited by renowned New Testament scholar D.A. Carson bring together essays from evangelical church leaders around the world to examine in detail three essential Christian doctrines: what it means to be right with God (justification), prayer, and worship. Many of the contributors seek to show what bearing each doctrine has on the proclamation of the gospel and Christian living in their own cultures. Beyond merely academic, the ultimate goal of these volumes is to fuel the Christian’s service of the church for the glory of the Head of the church.
Right With God: Justification in the Bible and the World covers the Bible’s teaching on justification and addresses other important topics such as Christian living and social justice. Its focus is on how the doctrine of justification ought to work out in a variety of contexts around the world. Teach Us to Pray contains a detailed analysis of the biblical theology of prayer, a survey of spirituality in various religions, and lessons in prayer from the worldwide church concluded with personal insights from some key leaders. Worship: Adoration and Action avoids a merely mechanical and pragmatic approach to worship and instead covers the biblical and systematic theology of worship, the heritage of the Reformers, and contemporary free church worship.
Originally written for the World Evangelical Fellowship’s Theological Commission, these were the products of international consultations that brought together evangelical leaders from various parts of the world. Editor D.A. Carson has remarked that considerable unity was achieved as the essays written for these volumes came together.
