More Details

Evangelical Theology 2 is part two of an overview of the systematic theology textbook by professor and scholar Michael Bird from the unique perspective that contends that the center, unity, and boundary of evangelical faith is the evangel, or gospel, as opposed to doctrines like justification by faith or inerrancy. With this understanding, the evangel becomes the unifying thread in evangelical theology and the theological hermeneutic through which the various loci of theology may be understood.

Evangelical Theology 2 explores the theology of salvation, God's kingdom, and the Church.
