About this ebook

This new edition of a standard text describes lucidly and comprehensively the "classical Protestant faith" with the help of illustrations drawn from contemporary life. It does not assume previous knowledge yet does not avoid the more complex issues in Christian theology, such as the theories of the atonement or the doctrine of the trinity.In eight chapters the author explains, against many current misunderstandings, what Christians mean by faith. He describes the nature of revelation and the God who has revealed himself -- and what this means for an understanding of the world and the human condition in this world. This is followed by an explanation of the doctrine of Christ, his humanity and divinity, and his work on behalf of the human race.Professor Forell concludes with an explanation of the work of the Holy Spirit through the church by means of word and sacrament and details the Christian hope for the coming kingdom of God. The Protestant Faith has a valuable appendix which makes available the universal Christian creeds and confessional statements, and adds to its appeal as a text and reference manual.
