Item description for A Theology of Word & Spirit: Authority & Method in Theology (Christian Foundations) by Donald G. Bloesch...
A 1994 Christianity Today book award winner. In the inaugural volume of his seven-volume systematic theology, Christian Foundations, Donald G. Bloesch surveys his method. His approach is conversant with up-to-the-minute theological concerns but also vitally grounded in the Reformation emphasis on biblical revelation illumined by the Holy Spirit. In A Theology of Word & Spirit Bloesch draws out the contemporary implications of the biblically founded theology of Augustine, Luther, Calvin and Barth. He also offers fresh and faithful discussions of relativism, the present church conflict over biblical authority, fideism and rationalism, feminine-gender language for God, narrative theology, and the hermeneutical problem. Harvesting the fruit of a lifetime of devoted scholarship and passionate dialogue, Bloesch offers his assessments and reflections at a time of extraordinary change and challenge. InA Theology of Word & Spirit he points the way toward a confessional theology for the 21st century.

More About Donald G. Bloesch
Donald G. Bloesch (1928 2010) was a noted American evangelical theologian. From 1957 until his retirement in 1992, he was a professor of theology at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, where he continued as a professor emeritus. For more than forty years, he published scholarly yet accessible works that generally defend traditional Protestant beliefs and practices while seeking to remain in the mainstream of modern Protestant theological thought. He characterized himself a progressive evangelical or Ecumenical orthodox, criticizing the excesses of both the theological left and right. Bloesch s pietistic background and personal spiritual life lay at the heart of understanding his theology.
Donald G. Bloesch was born in 1928 and died in 2010.
Reviews - What do customers think about A Theology of Word & Spirit: Authority & Method in Theology (Christian Foundations)?
An Excellent Series Oct 30, 2001
Bloesch's Christian Foundations is an excellent series (5 out a projected 7 published thus far), based on a "progressive evangelical" approach. He relies a lot on Barth & Brunner, which will stick in some Evangelicals' craw. This book is my favorite since it does an excellent job of discussing rationalists like Clark, Van Til, Geisler, etc. from a (somewhat) Calvinist perspective.
