Introducing Christian Doctrine, 2nd ed. is an abridged, less technical version of Millard J. Erickson's classic Christian Theology. Pastors and students alike will find this survey of Christian theology and doctrine a practical and accessible resource with both breadth and substance. Erickson begins by explaining what theology is and then progresses through the doctrines of revelation, God, creation and providence, humanity, sin, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the atonement and salvation, the church, and eschatology. This new edition adds pedagogical aids, includes a chapter on post-modernity, and features the pertinent chapter from Christian Theology contemporizing the gospel message.
Millard J. Erickson is Distinguished Professor of Theology at Baylor University’s Truett Theological Seminary. He is the author of numerous works, including Christian Theology, God in Three Persons, and The Word Became Flesh.
