Contents:
Augustine's children : the problems with Reformed theology. Oh Adam, where art thou? ; Squinting at the Pauline "I" chart ; Laying down the law with Luther ; Awaiting the election results -- On dispensing with dispensationalism. Enraptured but not uplifted : the origins of dispensationalism and prophecy ; What goes up, must come down : the problem with rapture theology ; Will the real Israel of God please stand up? -- Mr. Wesley heading west. Jesus, Paul, and John : keeping company in the kingdom ; New birth or new creatures? ; Amazing prevenient grace and entire sanctification -- The long journey home : where do we go from here? Reimagining the mystery ; And so? ; Rebirth of orthodoxy or return to fundamentalism?
Summary: There is no doubting the legacy of the Protestant Reformers and their successors. Luther, Calvin, and Wesley not only spawned specific denominational traditions, but their writings have been instrumental in forging a broadly embraced evangelical theology as well. In this volume, Ben Witherington wrestles with some of the big ideas of these major traditional theological systems (sin, God's sovereignty, prophecy, grace, and the Holy Spirit), asking tough questions about their biblical foundations. Witherington argues that evangelicalism sometimes wrongly assumes a biblical warrant for some of it.

Description based on print version record.

There is no doubting the legacy of the Protestant Reformers and their successors. Luther, Calvin, and Wesley not only spawned specific denominational traditions, but their writings have been instrumental in forging a broadly embraced evangelical theology as well. In this volume, Ben Witherington wrestles with some of the big ideas of these major traditional theological systems (sin, God's sovereignty, prophecy, grace, and the Holy Spirit), asking tough questions about their biblical foundations. Witherington argues that evangelicalism sometimes wrongly assumes a biblical warrant for some of it.
