9780310209157: Integrative Theology

Integrative Theology is designed to help graduate students in a pluralistic world utilize a standard method of fruitful research. Each chapter on a major doctrine: (1) states a classic issue of ultimate concern, (2) surveys alternative past and present answers and (3) tests those proposals by their congruence with information on the subject progressively revealed from Genesis to Revelation. Then the chapter (4) formulates a doctrinal conclusion that consistently fits the many lines of biblical data, (5) defends that conviction respectfully, and finally (6) explores the conclusion’s relevance to a person’s spiritual birth, growth and service to others, all for the glory of God. Why the title Integrative Theology? In each chapter, steps 2-6 integrate the disciplines of historical, biblical, systematic, apologetic and practical theology.

From the Back Cover:

This study is a new and distinctive approach to theology. It integrates the historical, biblical, systematic, apologetic, and practical fields. Integrative theology involves six steps: 1. Defining a distinct problem or subject for inquiry 2. Learning alternative approaches to the topic 3. Articulating a coherent summary of Old and New Testament teaching 4. Formulating a cohesive doctrine and relating it to other biblical doctrines and other knowledge 5. Defending the doctrine 6. Applying the doctrine as a driving force for Christian life and ministry. The complete three-book set now has been brought together in one volume to address the following topics: Book One: Knowing Ultimate Reality: The Living God - Book Two: Our Primary Need: Christ's Atoning Provisions - Book Three: Spirit-Given Life: God's People Present and Future
