This new edition of a successful textbook presents an accessible yet comprehensive primer that helps readers understand the breadth of viewpoints on major issues in evangelical theology, with chapters using the popular three- or four-views book format. Gregory Boyd and Paul Eddy carefully examine various positions taken by evangelical scholars on seventeen seminal issues. They lay out the biblical, theological, and philosophical arguments for each position in point-counterpoint fashion and discuss possible objections. Rather than taking sides, they give readers the resources they need to make up their own minds.
The second edition retains the helpful features of the first edition-end-of-chapter 'For Further Reading' sections and an extensive glossary-and adds an appendix that addresses thirteen peripheral issues in contemporary evangelicalism.
