Marc Cortez’s Review of Evangelical Theology

Marc Cortez’s Review of Evangelical Theology January 15, 2014

Marc Cortez (Wheaton College) continues his review of Evangelical Theology with a good mix of affirmations and criticisms. Cortez concludes:

Bird’s Evangelical Theology is one of the more unique, readable, and engaging systematic theology textbooks that I’ve come across. It is ideally suited for use in an introductory theology class where the teacher can supplement it with other resources, which is true of most one-volume theology textbooks. And it really shines as a resource for helping students do systematic theology in a way that is thoroughly grounded in the gospel and biblical theology. It will be less helpful for those looking for a book that will help them or their students understand various theological perspectives, the nuances between them,  how to navigate those differences, and how those decisions will impact everyday life and ministry.
