Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Dogmatics, Volume 1?
Volume II: Forde is great, get rid of the rest Oct 24, 2002
Commenting only on volume II (you can buy it seperately), Gerhard Forde's locus on Christian life (eleven) is awesome!! I would give this volume 5 stars if it contained only the eleventh locus (and maybe the twelfth). My understanding of sanctification has been completely turned around thanks to Dr. Forde.
Christian? Dogmatics Aug 21, 2000
For the uninitiated, 'dogmatics' is the systematic study of theology,i.e. concentrating in specific 'chapters' (loci) everything Scripture (and other theologians) have to say about the given topic. For example, Topic 1 may be "Creation," followed by a thorough study of everything Scripture has to say on the topic. Though the editors, both professed liberal Lutherans, have undoubtedly worked hard at compling the latest scholarship, conservative Christians (and esp. conservative Lutherans) will shudder at the results. Completely promoting the idea that the Bible is a man-made, evolutionary document, the authors have the brashness to suggest such things as that Jesus of Nazareth may have been the product of the rape of a young Jewish girl by a Roman soldier. There are other atrocities as well. Received as progressive, ecumenical, and enlightening by liberal factions in Christianity, "Christian Dogmatics" leaves Bible-believing followers of Jesus saying, "All accolades aside, it this true?" For those looking for an anchor for their faith, this text will only set the searching soul adrift into the sea of modern theological confusion, where truth is relative and, in the end, unknoweable.
