Christian faith : dogmatics in outline by B. A Gerrish( )

6 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the beginning of Christian Faith, B.A. Gerrish reminds us that dogmatics involves critical transmission of the Christian heritage. The dogmatic theologian must interpret and assess the traditional beliefs of the church while also considering the new and changing conditions in which that tradition is being embodied. With that, Gerrish goes on to outline the various presuppositions and affirmations of the Christian faith before ultimately offering a powerful and compelling restatement of Christian faith for the twenty-first century. As part of his framework, Gerrish includes a critical comparison of Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion and Schleiermacher's Christian Faith while still paying close attention to the great cloud of theological witnesses from across the spectrum of Christian traditions. Gerrish's book provides a robust and penetrating revisioning of Christian theology, one that is thoroughly grounded in the classical traditions of the church

Saving and secular faith : an invitation to systematic theology by B. A Gerrish( Book )

7 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What does it mean to live by faith? Beginning from the term "faith" in the New Testament and Thomas Aquinas, eminent theologian Brian Gerrish shows that saving faith, as Martin Luther and John Calvin understood it, was not so much belief as discernment of God's good will toward them in the word about Christ and therefore also in their own lives. As such, saving faith has its counterparts in secular faith: other outlooks, religious or not, which enable persons to find meaning in their lives through discernment of a pattern on them or an object worthy of loyalty. Faith is not exclusively a Christian virtue but a characteristic activity of the human mind, and both saving a secular faith rest on inevitable beliefs shared by Christians with others."--BOOK JACKET
Thinking with the church : essays in historical theology by B. A Gerrish( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thinking with the Church offers twelve meaty essays from a renowned historian, theologian, and Calvin scholar. In this volume B. A. Gerrish focuses on the progression of the Calvinist tradition and examines historical theology as a critical engagement with past leaders of Christian thought and their opponents." "In the first two parts the essays focus on philosophical theology, considering such questions as What is religion? and What is revelation? Part three turns directly to historical interpretation of the Calvinist tradition, viewed in the very diverse work of three of its foremost representatives Calvin himself, Friedrich Sch1eiermacher, and Charles Hodge. Finally, in the fourth and fifth sections, Gerrish deals with particular Christian doctrines in which the diversity of the Calvinist tradition is apparent the atonement, the Eucharist, and grace. Historical interpretation is the foundation throughout, but Gerrish does not exclude the critical engagement that belongs to the
