Item description for Christian Faith: An Introduction to the Study of the Faith by Hendrikus Berkhof & Sierd Woudstra...

In today's secular world, the Christian faith is viewed as only one aspect of what could be called "religious life." Acknowledging this, Hendrikus Berkhof begins this thought-provoking study with a sketch of religion and faith in general before narrowing it down to a discussion of the specific place of Christian faith in all of reality. / For Berkhof the starting point in his systematic examination of Christian faith is revelation --- the sources and norms for our knowledge of God. This leads to a discussion of God, creation, Israel, the person and work of Christ, the church, and finally, the renewal of the world and of humanity. Throughout the book Berkhof comments on (and often takes issues with) systematic theologians of the past. / Written for both the layperson and the scholar, the text is interspersed with excursuses (set off in smaller type than the main text) that cover specific subjects more thoroughly, citing sources, controversies, and other details which will be of particular interest to theologians and students.

Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Faith: An Introduction to the Study of the Faith?

A Great Introduction to Christianity  Nov 30, 2007
This is a beautifully written introductory textbook to Reformed Christianity. Berkof provides the reader in this book with a lifetime of careful reflection and has presented a great beginner's book in theology. Berkof comes from the Dutch Reformed Tradition. I used this book in Reformed Theology first and second semesters when I was in seminary because the professors had it as required reading. At the time I was not sufficiently able to appreciate its depth and wealth of knowledge, but today I keep it close to hand when I'm preparing sermons. This is one of those books that if you let it shape you as you read, you won't be disappointed. It is a worthy contribution to the task and calling of understanding our Christian Faith.
