"Clearly written and well-outlined, this book would serve as an excellent college textbook as well as being accessible to educated laypersons."--Warren McWilliams, Religious Studies Review

Introducing Christian Doctrine, 2nd ed. is an abridged, less technical version of Millard J. Erickson's classic Christian Theology. Pastors and students alike will find this survey of Christian theology and doctrine a practical and accessible resource with both breadth and substance.

Erickson begins by explaining what theology is and then progresses through the doctrines of revelation, God, creation and providence, humanity, sin, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, the atonement and salvation, the church, and eschatology. This new edition adds pedagogical aids, includes a chapter on postmodernity, and features the pertinent chapter from Christian Theology contemporizing the gospel message.
