Publisher's Summary

Evangelical Theology: Audio Lectures, a companion to the textbook Evangelical Theology, presents systematic theology from the unique perspective of a biblical scholar. Author and scholar Michael Bird contends that the center, unity, and boundary of the evangelical faith is the evangel, or gospel, as opposed to doctrines like justification by faith or inerrancy. 

The evangel is the unifying thread in evangelical theology and the theological hermeneutic through which the various loci of theology need to be understood, thus these lectures present an approach to Christian doctrine that begins with the gospel and sees each loci through the lens of the gospel. 

Filled with humor that will keep viewers engaged as they learn the foundational doctrines of the Christian faith, Evangelical Theology: Audio Lectures is an ideal way for beginning students and laypeople to explore theology.

Great and simple introduction

Amazing lectures with a casual audience in mind. Perfect entry point for a layman to have a comprehensive understanding on Christian belief.

Theologically Rich and Challenging

I have thoroughly enjoyed this lecture series. Dr. Bird clearly and concisely describes evangelical theology without compromising the integrity of the Gospel it is founded on. His wit and humor are fun and enjoyable. The content is weighty, but anyone can listen to this and be educated, enriched, and more equipped to understand the basic tenets of the Church and the Gospel’s centrality in the daily Christian life.

Great Overview

I loved Bird’s focus on the essentials and his ability to hold my attention even while driving (and it’s theology!) His only difficult to follow section was on gender. I would recommend this to anyone interested in Christianity, and I might use it with some disciples.
