Item Description...
The fruit of 20 years of scholarship by one of evangelical Christianity's most prominent theologians. Rooted in the tradition of Reformation theology, this accessible 2-in-1 volume explores the implications of a broad-based evangelicalism and lays the foundation for a fruitful dialogue with other believers who seek to present a unified Christian witness to a secularized culture. 580 pages, hardcover from Hendrickson.

Publishers Description
Blending illuminating scholarship with balanced judgment, this well-received investigation clarifies the distinctive aspects of evangelicalism as it lays the foundations for productive dialogue with others in the Christian tradition. Rooted in the classical tradition of reformation theology informed by biblical spirituality, Dr. Bloesch places theological issues in the context of both a historical perspective and the new life found in Christ. The fruit of twenty years of scholarship by one of evangelical Christianity's senior theologians, this accessible two-volume work insightfully explores the implications of a broad-based Evangelicalism.

More About Donald G. Bloesch

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo!

Donald G. Bloesch (1928 2010) was a noted American evangelical theologian. From 1957 until his retirement in 1992, he was a professor of theology at the University of Dubuque Theological Seminary in Dubuque, Iowa, where he continued as a professor emeritus. For more than forty years, he published scholarly yet accessible works that generally defend traditional Protestant beliefs and practices while seeking to remain in the mainstream of modern Protestant theological thought. He characterized himself a progressive evangelical or Ecumenical orthodox, criticizing the excesses of both the theological left and right. Bloesch s pietistic background and personal spiritual life lay at the heart of understanding his theology.


Donald G. Bloesch was born in 1928 and died in 2010.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Outstanding Theology!!  Oct 8, 2002
I can't add a lot to the excellent review by Marc Axelrod,
other than to say, "Amen!" Bloesch was and is a mentor,
teacher, and friend and I am so happy to have come across
his books while I was in theological school. They were
a great help to me then and continue to be a good resource
today. I frequently return to his works when I work on
sermons and Bible studies. I can't recommend his _Essentials_
and his current seven volume _Christian Foundations_ highly
A good survey of themes in theology  Aug 2, 2000
Bloesch wrote these 2 volumes from the perspective of the mainline Evangelical and Reformed tradition, and so he deals extensively with the liberal Protestant theological writers of the 19th and 20th centuries (Schliermacher, Kierkiegaard, Harnack, Tillich,) as well as neo-orthodox writers (especially Barth, Brunner, Bonhoeffer, Kung, and Cullmann). He comes out evangelical in his teachings on the primacy of scripture (yet reflecting his Barthian influences, he sees scripture as a medium of divine revelation rather than just flat out divine revelation), salvation by grace through faith, and the substitutionary atonement of Christ (a doctrine that is sometimes ridiculed as archaic and primitive in the liberal Protestant tradition).

In volume two, Bloesch contributes fascinating chapters on the cruciality of preaching (a much ignored subject in most systematic theologies), scriptural holiness (where Bloesch is influenced somewhat by the Wesleyan-Holiness tradition), and the personal return of Jesus Christ (where Bloesch comes out with an awkward position combining elements of amillennial and postmillenial thought). He also concludes the book with an insightful discussion on heaven and hell, and a closing chapter on the future of evangelicalism. I recommend these volumes highly, but especially to those who are in mainline denominations such as the United Church of Christ and the Presbyterian Church, USA.
