Synopsis:
An introduction to the evangelical branch of the Christian church

Review:
The most crucial question facing the Christian today-indeed, the question that confronts every generation of believers-is: What does it mean to think, act, and view the world like a Christian in today's culture?

A Family of Faith answers this question by exploring the rich heritage and various branches that make up God's family-the church. Focusing particularly on the evangelical branch, the authors open up the Christian family album, introduce its main characters, and bring the lessons of the past to bear on the present scene-always with the goal of encouraging us to be faithful to Jesus Christ now.

"A helpful introduction to the evangelical heritage and a forthright challenge to remain true to this heritage." -Donald G. Bloesch, Dubuque Theological Seminary, Emeritus

"The authors stake out the essentials of an evangelical Christian worldview and trace its development from the early church through the variety of post-Reformation traditions to today's evangelical diversity-always with an eye to how Christianity relates to culture. A first-rate text." -Arthur Holmes, Wheaton College, Emeritus

"Evangelical ecumenicity at its best: an understanding of the worldview we share in common and an appreciation for the distinctives that make us unique." -Dennis Hollinger, Messiah College

"The authors present a balance of content with narrative style to produce a unique book: one which offers an overview of systematic theology coupled with a readable history of theology, leading up to present concerns that face the church as the church faces the world." -W. Gary Phillips, Bryan College

Dennis L. Okholm is professor of theology at Wheaton College. Timothy R. Phillips served as associate professor of theology at Wheaton College. Together they coedited The Nature of Confession: Evangelicals and Postliberals in Conversation, More Than One Way?, and Christian Apologetics in the Postmodern World.

Book Description: Baker Publishing Group. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, A Family of Faith: An Introduction to Evangelical Christianity (2nd), Timothy R. Phillips, Dennis L. Okholm, Every family's heritage reaches back many centuries and includes various branches. The Christian family is much like this, contend Phillips and Okholm, as they examine the "evangelical branch" of the church. Intended as a college-level introduction to the Christian faith, the book is divided into three sections: part one develops the concept of control beliefs as they relate to worldviews; part two explores the framework of the biblical revelation, that is the Christian worldview; and part three, the largest section, provides an overview of church history, emphasizing the various ways the church has related the Christian worldview to the culture in which it exists. Previously published as Welcome to the Family, this textbook now includes sidebars, charts, a lexicon of key terms, reflection questions, bibliographies, a substantive discussion of postmodernism, and primary source appendices. "A helpful introduction to the evangelical heritage and a forthright challenge to remain true to this heritage"--Donald G. Bloesch, Dubuque Theological Seminary "The authors stake out the essentials of an evangelical Christian worldview and trace its development from the early church through the variety of post-Reformation traditions to today's evangelical diversity--always with an eye to how Christianity relates to culture.
