Introduction to Theology Declaring the Wonders of God Frank D. Macchia FOUNDATIONS FOR SPIRIT-FILLED CHRISTIANITY Jerry Ireland, Paul W. Lewis, and Frank D. Macchia, series editors
This systematic theology textbook introduces students to the complexity and beauty of theology as a pursuit of the global church today. It views theology as an ongoing conversation with many voices about the wonders of God that is faithful above all else to Scripture but is also attentive to the wisdom of tradi- tion and the relevance of context. Frank Macchia, a leading systematic theologian who hails from the Pentecostal/ Charismatic stream of Christian faith and practice, introduces students to the nature, tasks, and sources of Christian theology. The book first summarizes the nature and necessity of theological thinking and discusses theological method. Chapters then unfold in creedal order through the various regions of Christian teaching, with units on revelation, God, creation and providence, Christology, pneumatology, ecclesiology, anthropology, soteriology, and eschatology.
