The Faith Once Entrusted to the Saints
Full Product Description
In recent times, influential writers have revisited central doctrines and argued that their traditional interpretations within evangelicalism have been in error. In response, Geoffrey Grogan engages with challenges in a selection of key subjects: open theism, penal substitution, the New Perspective on Paul and justification, the doctrine of Scripture, and hermeneutics.
Three convictions undergird Grogan's responses.* The Bible is an inexhaustible book and we can never assume we have already learned all the truth it has to convey to us.* We are called to 'contend for the faith that was once for all entrusted to the saints' (Jude 3) - this is not always easy, but it must be done.* When we are in debate with other Christians, this must always be in a spirit of love and without acrimony.
Grogan's wise, positive and balanced analyses will be valued by theological students and scholars, ministers, church leaders and all with a serious interest in Christian theology.

The Faith Once Entrusted to the Saints?John Macaulay, via The Good Book Stall
This book is an excellent resource for those who are interested in biblical interpretation.
The author’s reason for writing the book has been the questioning of the traditional evangelical position by other evangelicals.
Grogan deals with the issue of the doctrine of God in his chapter on ‘Open Theism’, looking at and engaging with those, like Pinnock, who question God’s nature. He also deals in a similarly thorough way with modern perspectives on, penal substitution, justification and Paul’s theology, the doctrine of scripture, and the nature of biblical exegesis. In a final short chapter he comments on the direction that evangelicalism should be going in.
This is not a polemic against all things new in evangelical theology but is rather a carefully reasoned study of the traditional evangelical position and its differences from some of the new perspectives. The author’s own position being that, “we should never resent a call for a new appraisal of our theological heritage, as long as the criterion of the appraisal is Holy Scripture.” (P 37)
The book is written in the hope of providing guidelines on the interpretation of scripture which hold true not just for the issues dealt with in the book, but also for the examination of any given theological position.

'When the waters get choppy, as they have recently on the sea of evangelical theology, you need an experienced pilot on the bridge. Veteran theologian Geoffrey Grogan proves just such a pilot as he engages recent evangelical debates. This book reveals his steady hand, informed mind and irenic spirit. All will be informed by it, while those eager to throw older evangelical views overboard must be encouraged to respond to it.' - Derek Tidball
'I warmly commend this defence, against some of the more potent contemporary alternatives, of the biblical understanding of God, of Christ's cross, of justification and of authority. What is set forth here is nothing less than historic Christianity, and without its truths the church will be left with nothing to say in our postmodern world.' - David F. Wells
