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.

Reviews

"This Cambridge Companion provides a valuable resource for the study of evangelical theology. The various contributions are intended to assist both scholars and students to understand more fully evangelical theology especially as it is present in Africa, Asia and Latin America. This Book deserves a place in any theological library. "
Lucien J. Richard, Catholic Library World

"...offers helpful insight into some of the various contours in which modern evangelicalism finds itself." --Jeffrey Anderson, Regent University School of Divinity: Religious Studies Review

"The Cambridge Companion to Religion series aims to provide accessible introductions for new readers and non-specialists. This volume surpasses that goal with its specialized and ethnically diverse authors, its accessibility, its up-to-date analyses, its breadth of topics, and its global scope, all of which should afford it a wide readership." --Restoration Quarterly
