Publisher's Summary

The 2011 award-winning publication The Christian Faith garnered wide praise as a thorough, well-informed treatment of the philosophical foundations of Christian theology, the classical elements of systematic theology, and exegesis of relevant biblical texts. Pilgrim Theology distills the distinctive benefits of this approach into a more accessible introduction designed for classroom and group study.

In this book, Michael Horton guides readers through a preliminary exploration of Christian theology in "a Reformed key". Horton reviews the biblical passages that give rise to a particular doctrine in addition to surveying past and present interpretations. Also included are sidebars showing the key distinctions readers need to grasp on a particular subject, helpful charts and tables illuminating exegetical and historical topics, and questions at the end of each chapter for individual, classroom, and small-group reflection.

Pilgrim Theology will help undergraduate students of theology and educated laypersons gain an understanding of the Christian tradition’s biblical and historical foundations.

    "Great content, but don't blink"
    What did you love best about Pilgrim Theology?

    Michael has a great way of explaining deep topics without overwhelming the reader/listener, as long as you don't mind (painlessly) expanding your vocabulary in the process.
    The pace demands the listener pay closer attention than some would prefer (but that is more of a criticism of the potential listener than this author). Fortunately he keeps things quite interesting.
    I started listening on the release date and kept it on continuously to the end, pausing only to sleep. Can I give this book SIX stars???


    What other book might you compare Pilgrim Theology to and why?

    Most anything by R C Sproul - written for those of us who haven't graduated from Seminary but secretly wish we had.


    Have you listened to any of Vicas Adam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have no previous experience with this narrator. He did an above-average job with this book, but credit should be given to the author for writting in a style that is more conversational than most Theological texts.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I appreciate Michael's treatment of the Gospel itself, which I gather is something few church-goers could accurately define, much less communicate clearly.


    Any additional comments?

    Many thanks to Audible for providing this book and others like it, especially when so many "contrary theological opinions" pepper the shelves here...

    "Horton explains "both ends" of theology."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is easy understandable theology but not "dummy" theology. Each doctrine he explains objectively various sides such as evangelical, roman catholic etc. and then paves the way for his pilgrim theology with biblical, historical and logical arguments.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Pilgrim Theology?

    Tough to decide, many gold nuggets. One of them: p. 15 "Today, especially in the West, most people tend to associate religion with the inner realm of individual soul (mysticism) or with principles for individual or social behaviour (morality), or perhaps - though less often these days - with intellectual curiosity and speculation (philosophy). Mix elements of these three - mysticism, morality, and philosophy - together and stir in a generous dose of Yankee pragmatism, and the result is an eclectic soup that is easy to swallow. The goal of life is often viewed as some form of personal or collective happiness. If a person can mix in a bit of wisdom from various other perspectives to spice things up, all the better! The faith that springs form the Bible's story of God is entirely different ...


    Any additional comments?

    I got both the audible and print copy. The content is so rich and has many gold nuggets that I decided to buy a paper copy of it.

    "Great Book, Not-So-Great Audiobook"
    If you could sum up Pilgrim Theology in three words, what would they be?

    Dense, Informative, Enlightening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No characters in this one.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I thought that the audio recording could have been EQ'd much better. Many plosive "pops." So many that it was distracting. Additionally, I did not care for the narrater's pronunciation of "God" with a tall "O" (Gawd) as opposed to a short "O" (Gahd). This, too was very distracting.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. The richness of the source material is something I have needed to savor and reflect upon. Purchasing the physical copy has allowed me to read at a slower pace, digest the information, highlight and make notes. This is an excellent book, but I'm afraid the audio version did not allow me to enjoy it fully.


    Any additional comments?

    Better production could have helped. Again, the audio was not EQ'd well at all.

    "Great book but weak performance"

    The reader speaks too softly -- very nearly whispering.
    Oddly, the quality and volume of the reader's narration improves significantly when reading a quote (e.g., from John Calvin at the end of Chapter 1).

    Story
    "Systematic Theology of the Reformation in context."

    Pilgrim theology has a healthy respect for Calvin and the Reformation. It seek to place this in a modern context by looking at the perceived common paradigms, which continue to influence contemporary culture.
    It seeks to be accessible to lay people and for group study.
    It fails to give the proper place to post millennialism and to the Reformed eschatology, which is surprising because the Reformers had featured large up until the end.
    I am really enjoying a second listen and it has helped me to scrutinise some thorny issues.
    Should be a must listen for all Christians.
