At last... everything you've wanted to nkow about the Christian faith and it's bibleical foundations - but were afraid to ask, and in one concise, readable and reliable book. In ‘Pilgrim Theology’, distinguished theologian, Michael S. Horton, distils the theory and practice of the Christian faith into one volume, easy to access resource for reading groups, church-wide studies, college courses and even Sunday schools.

In this concise guide to Christian doctrine, the award winning theologian and writer reviews specific Christian doctrines and locates them back in their original biblical passage. In addition to surveying past and present interpretations of the Bible sources, uses in-text ‘sidebars’ to show the key distinctions readers need to understand to get their heads around on a particular subject.

Helpful charts and tables highlight key theological and historical topics, and questions at the end of each chapter - for individual, classroom, and small group reflection, help you check on your understanding and go back over anything you think you might have missed.

Michael draws on his award winning 2011 work ‘The Christian Faith’ to create this new ‘Pilgrim Theology’ as a summary and overview of the Church’s teachings in an accessible form for all Christians from all denominations and traditions who need a contemporary view of key theological issues.

‘Pilgrim Theology’ will help undergraduate students of theology and interested lay-persons gain an understanding of the Christian tradition’s biblical and historical foundations.

Publisher's Description

This concise tour of Christian doctrine is an ideal resource for Sunday School, reading groups, church-wide studies, and college courses examining the Christian faith and the Reformed tradition. Based, in part, on Michael Hortonís award-winning The Christian Faith, this new study---Pilgrim Theology---presents the churchís teachings in an accessible manner, while engaging other Christian traditions and contemporary theological issues.

The 2011 award-winning publication The Christian Faith garnered wide praise as a thorough, well-informed treatment of the philosophical foundations of Christian theology, the classical elements of systematic theology, and exegesis of relevant biblical texts. Pilgrim Theology distills the distinctive benefits of this approach into a more accessible introduction designed for classroom and group study.

In this book, Michael Horton guides readers through a preliminary exploration of Christian theology in ďa Reformed key.Ē Horton reviews the biblical passages that give rise to a particular doctrine in addition to surveying past and present interpretations. Also included are sidebars showing the key distinctions readers need to grasp on a particular subject, helpful charts and tables illuminating exegetical and historical topics, and questions at the end of each chapter for individual, classroom, and small group reflection.
Pilgrim Theology will help undergraduate students of theology and educated laypersons gain an understanding of the Christian traditionís biblical and historical foundations.

Reader's Praise for Michael Horton's source book for 'Pilgrim Theology' - 'The Christian faith'

"I highly recommend his book to a wide variety of readers: seminarians and seminaries, pastors, teachers, and educated laymen. Horton's work is an incredible achievement in that he has taken the worn out discipline of systematic theology and injected it with new life...

Horton's work has been said by some to be one of the most important systematic theologies since Berkhof's. In fact, Horton's is better than Berkhof's, which is a work that betrays a much more modern mindset that categorizes things without necessarily showing how they all relate. Horton's work is a book that should be in the hands of a great many Christians!" - Other Reatailer's Reviewer.

"Written in a style that is easily reachable even for the common layman, Horton weaves historic, biblical and systematic theology in a way that highlights not only the truth of Scripture but why and how the Christian world-view is necessarily antithetical to pagan and atheistic world-views. Horton has written his text in a manner much different than many systematics. He writes in a style almost like telling a story. His writing style definitely holds the readers attention and is not the dry technical style found in many systematic theologies." - Other Reatailer's Reviewer.
