Product Description

Emphasizing the beliefs common to all branches of Christendom rather than the issues that divide, Thomas Oden brings the full weight of two millennia of discussion to bear on the ever-contemporary questions of Christian faith. His magisterial study not only treats the traditional elements of systematic theology, referencing hundreds of theologians—Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, charismatic—but also highlights the foundational exegetes of history. Broadly ecumenical in the truest sense of the word, and written from the perspective of a theological liberal-turned-evangelical, Oden’s direct, frank, and provocative approach articulates the concerns of a broad spectrum of Christians—pastors, teachers, seminarians, and thoughtful laity.

Though comprehensive in scope, the set is arranged in a Trinitarian fashion with each volume focusing on one person of the godhead. The first volume explores the Christian understanding of God, creation and providence. The second volume discusses Christ and the Incarnation. The third volume considers the presence of the Holy Spirit in history, and his power in the lives and communities of present day believers.

  1. I haven’t read volume three, but I really like Oden. I should say, I like the theory of Oden; I like all of his references to old theologians. I might like it better if he included them as footnotes instead of including it in the body of the text itself, but beggers can’t be choosers. In general, I think his writing style is mediocre, but his references are awesome.

  2. Hey RT, good to hear from you. I actually bought all 3 volumes. I agree I would prefer that he would include them in the footnotes, but I learn to ignore things right away, so after a while they just don’t bother me.
