Evangelicalism, a vibrant and growing expression of historic Christian orthodoxy, is already one of the largest and most geographically diverse global religious movements. This Companion, first published in 2007, offers an articulation of evangelical theology that is both faithful to historic evangelical convictions and in dialogue with contemporary intellectual contexts and concerns. In addition to original and creative essays on central Christian doctrines such as Christ, the Trinity, and Justification, it breaks new ground by offering evangelical reflections on issues such as gender, race, culture, and world religions. This volume also moves beyond the confines of Anglo-American perspectives to offer separate essays exploring evangelical theology in African, Asian, and Latin American contexts. The contributors to this volume form an unrivalled list of many of today's most eminent evangelical theologians and important emerging voices.

• Reflects strongly and explicitly the global nature of Evangelicalism • Presents the theology of this extremely influential community • Discusses both classical theological themes and evangelical views on contemporary concerns

Review

'The Companion … [is] accessible to both experts and newcomers … every chapter has extensive further reading and that alone will provide an excellent introduction to the wider field of evangelicalism, and detailed notes probe further for the more serious student.' Reference Reviews
