Abstract:

[In this book, the author] thematically traces out Christian belief down through the ages, revealing a pattern of both unity and diversity. He finds a consensus of teaching that is both unitive and able to incorporate a faithful diversity when not forced into the molds of false either-or alternatives. The mosaic that emerges from [the author's] work displays a mediating evangelical theology that is nonspeculative and irenic in spirit and tone. Specifically written with the nonspecialist in mind, [the author] has ... sketched out the contours of Christian faith with simplicity while avoiding oversimplification.-Dust jacket.
