Handbook of Evangelical Theology: A Historical, Biblical, and Contemporary Survey and Review
Covering nine major doctrines of the Christian faith, Dr. Lightner provides a historical perspective on each topic, a positive statement of the areas of agreement among evangelicals, and a discussion of the different positions held by evangelicals. Practical suggestions and study questions for applying the doctrine to the daily issues of Christian living are also included at the end of each chapter. Lightner's balanced and evenhanded treatment of various theological positions and the breadth of coverage of beliefs among various evangelical groups make this one volume a helpful and reliable resource for doctrinal study.
Praise for the Print Edition
No other treatment of theology in the present era does exactly what Lightner accomplishes in the comparison and analysis of theological differences.… His work is always done evenhandedly, with an irenic spirit and remarkable comprehensiveness.
An immensely useful study text and reference work for anyone with a serious interest in evangelical Christian theology.
