Evangelicalism, a vibrant and growing expression of historic Christian orthodoxy, is already one of the largest and most geographically diverse global religious movements. This Companion offers an up-to-date articulation of evangelical theology that is both faithful to historic evangelical convictions and in dialogue with contemporary intellectual contexts and concerns. In addition to original and creative essays on central Christian doctrines such as Christ, the Trinity, and Justification, it breaks new ground by offering evangelical reflections on issues such as gender, race, culture, and world religions. This volume also moves beyond the confines of Anglo-American perspectives to offer separate essays exploring evangelical theology in African, Asian, and Latin American contexts. The contributors to this volume form an unrivalled list of many of today's most eminent evangelical theologians and important emerging voices.
Daniel Treier is Associate Professor of Theology at Wheaton College, Illinois. He is author of Virtue and the Voice of God (2006) and associate editor of the Dictionary for Theological Interpretation of the Bible (2005).

Editorial Reviews

"The Cambridge Companion to Religion series aims to provide accessible introductions for new readers and non-specialists. This volume surpasses that goal with its specialized and ethnically diverse authors, its accessibility, its up-to-date analyses, its breadth of topics, and its global scope, all of which should afford it a wide readership." --Restoration Quarterly
