Professing the Faith: Christian Theology in a North American Context

Professing the Faith: Christian Theology in a North American Context

What does it mean to profess the faith as North American Christians at the end of the second millennium? Douglas Hall looks to the heart of Christian faith—its teaching about God, Creatures, and Christ—to articulate a critical and creative response to contemporary culture. The core of Hall's trilogy, Professing the Faith is a fresh and frank engagement of the North American context by one of the continent's finest religious thinkers.

"One of the profoundest systematic theologies since Tillich. Douglas Hall relates theological issues to the contemporary North American context in a way that should prove to be immensely helpful to pastors and other church leaders who are interested in serious theological reflection."
--Peter C. Hodgson
Vanderbilt Divinity School

"Douglas John Hall may be firmly established as one of America's handful of defining Protestant theologians . . . [His volumes] deserve to be major textbooks in theological seminaries, and specialists can only admire Hall's mastery of the tradition and skill in making his arguments."
--Lee E. Snook
