The Augsburg Handbook of Christian Belief brings together six essays from expert contributors, covering the topics of faith, God, Jesus, salvation, the church, and Christian hope. Together, these essays form a sweeping survey of the basic principles, questions, and traditions of Christianity. Complete with a brief introduction on the history of Christian thought and an anthology of extracts from major Christian thinkers, this handbook is the ideal companion for both the general reader and the theology scholar. In addition, special boxed features highlight subjects related to each chapter, from the effects of postmodernism on the church, to Jesus's attitude toward women, to the debate over the baptism of children.
Whether read from start to end or referenced by topic, this accessible and comprehensive guide to Christian belief provides insight and clarity into how Christians have come to believe what they believe, with a careful attention to the breadth of belief that continues to define the church today.
