Item description for The Christian Story: Volume 1, Third Edition by Gabriel J. Fackre...
An original work in systematic theology, The Christian Story rises from, and strives to be a resource to, the life and witness of the church and its leadership. In addition to covering the standard teachings of Christianity-the doctrines of God, creation, the fall, covenant, Christ, salvation, church and consummation-Volume 1 presents Fackre's introduction to systematic theology. This revised third edition develops in more detail the doctrine of the Trinity, takes up the issues of religious pluralism and Jewish-Christian dialogue, and offers a perspective on angelology. New appendices discuss inclusive language and describe the surge of writing in the field of systematic theology.

Theology in a New Way Apr 2, 2007
This is a very nicely written book for those interested in reading and learning about theology, Written in a different way--it is clearly set out and provokes thought. Isn't that what theology is supposed to do? Professor Fackre has authored an easy to read introduction to theology that I found very useful in Sunday School classes. Its narrative format, no pun intended(!), increased its usefulness and I commend it highly. If we were to write a story based on what we hear and read in Scripture--theologically speaking--what might that story be like; how might it read? This is one such suggestion and eminently so...
