Learn the basics of the Reformed faith and its rich history from an expert and seasoned teacher. This book introduces Reformed theology by surveying the doctrinal concerns that have shaped its historical development. The book sketches the diversity of the Reformed tradition through the past five centuries even as it highlights the continuity with regard to certain theological emphases. In so doing, it accentuates that Reformed theology is marked by both formal (‘the always reforming church’) and material (‘the Reformed church’) interests. Furthermore, it attends to both revisionary and conservative trends within the Reformed tradition.

Reformed Theology covers eight traditional theological themes: Word of God, covenant, God and Christ, sin and grace, faith, worship, confessions and authority, and culture and eschatology. It engages a variety of Reformed confessional writings, as well as a number of individual theologians, Ulrich Zwingli, John Calvin, Heinrich Bullinger, Martin Bucer, Theodore Beza, John Owen, Francis Turretin, Jonathan Edwards, Friedrich Schleiermacher, Charles Hodge, William T. Shedd, Heinrich Heppe, Herman Bavinck, Karl Barth, and Rienhold Niebuhr.

Praise for the Print Edition

Clear, calm and illuminating, this book offers a loving and generous commendation of the classical Reformed tradition of doctrine and spiritual practice.

John Webster, chair of systematic theology, Department of Divinity and Religious Studies, University of Aberdeen, UK

Michael Allen's account of Reformed theology admirably joins clarity with precision, accessibility with gravity, and conviction with charity. Especially strong is the book's thorough attention to major Reformed figures like John Calvin and Karl Barth and major statements of Reformed faith like the Heidelberg Catechism and the Westminster Confession. While Allen does not shy away from full treatment of differences among Reformed theologians, his accent rests upon the distinctive ways in which Reformed theology incorporates and interprets the historic Christian message. The book is a splendid introduction for those who are in Reformed churches and an inviting invitation to dialogue with those who are not.

Mark A. Noll, Francis A. McAnaney Professor of History, University of Notre Dame

This is a splendid volume. Drawing deeply from the past while engaging a wide variety of contemporary voices, Reformed Theology nevertheless summarizes the richness of Reformed teaching with clarity and insight. Allen focuses on the main issues and beneath the superb brevity lies a deep reservoir of research.

Michael Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Theology, Westminster Seminary California

R. Michael Allen

R. Michael Allen teaches systematic (or dogmatic) theology and theological ethics as a way to train students to delight in the study of God’s mighty deeds (Psalm 111:2). He hopes that integrated study of Bible and theology will help students prepare for faithful ministry in the local church by considering our worship and witness in light of God’s Word. He is especially interested in how Christian doctrine relates to other theological disciplines: biblical theology, historical theology, and moral theology. He grew up in both the South and in South Florida as the son of a Presbyterian pastor. He is presently a candidate for ordination as a teaching elder in the Evangelical Presbyterian Church.

In addition to his work in the seminary, he enjoys serving in local churches: teaching classes for children and adults, preaching, and working in the nursery. Prior to joining the faculty at Knox, he taught undergraduate and graduate students at Wheaton College for two years. He has also been active in the American Academy of Religion, the Evangelical Theological Society, and the Society of Biblical Literature.
