Gateways to Dogmatics

Gerhaud Sauter

$85.00

Paperback
Today the work of theology, or "dogmatics," is widely thought to be of little practical importance for ordinary Christians. This challenging introduction to the tradition and practice of Christiandogmatics shows why reasoning theologically is still decisive for the life of the church. Gerhard Sauter introduces readers to the various approaches to dogmatics and points out what is essential in a complete and meaningful Christian theology. He also argues convincingly that dogmatics is properly understood as a movement of rational thought and not simply as an old-fashioned presentation of Christian doctrine, thereby firmly establishing the necessity of dogmatics for communicating the essentials of the faith.

- Publisher Gerhard Sauter is professor of systematic and ecumenical theology and director of the Ecumenical Institute at the Faculty of Protestant Theology, University of Bonn, Germany.

- Publisher A fascinating look at how dogmatics affect the church in terms of creeds, prayers of confession, pastoral care, liturgy, preaching, mission, and education. Sections on arriving at consensus, the principle of faithfulness to Scripture, how heresy is defined, and the role of dogmatics in interfaith dialogue.
