Millard Erickson's Christian Theology has been used widely as a reliable and comprehensive introduction to systematic theology. Now this classic text has been revised and updated to take into consideration changes in the theological world as well as changes in the intellectual, political, economic, and social worlds.

While retaining the accessibility of the original volume, Erickson has taken into account input from professors, students, and reviewers and added several sections, a new chapter on postmodernism, chapter objectives, chapter summaries, and study questions.

This influential textbook, now substantially updated and revised throughout, offers a comprehensive introduction to theology that is biblical, contemporary, moderate, and fair to various positions. The third edition takes into account feedback from professors and students and reflects current theological conversations, with added material on the atonement, justification, and divine foreknowledge.

Leading evangelical scholar Millard Erickson offers a new edition of his bestselling textbook, now substantially updated and revised throughout. This edition takes into account feedback from professors and students and reflects current theological conversations, with added material on the atonement, justification, and divine foreknowledge. Erickson's comprehensive introduction is biblical, contemporary, moderate, and fair to various positions, and it applies doctrine to Christian life and ministry.

The central theme of Christian Theology is the magnificence of God. By this the author refers to lthe greatness of God in terms of his power, knowledge, and other traditional 'natural attributes,' as well as excellence and splendor.l Writes Erickson, lTheology as well as life needs to be centered on the great living God, rather than on the human creature.
