The Evangelical Theology Video Lectures present systematic theology from the unique perspective of a biblical scholar.
Author and scholar Michael Bird contends that the center, unity, and boundary of the evangelical faith is the "evangel," or gospel, as opposed to doctrines like justification by faith or inerrancy.
The evangel is the unifying thread in evangelical theology and the theological hermeneutic through which the various loci of theology need to be understood, thus these lectures present an approach to Christian doctrine that begins with the gospel and sees each loci through the lens of the gospel.
Filled with vibrant illustrations and humor that will keep viewers engaged as they learn the foundational doctrines of the Christian faith, Evangelical Theology Video Lectures is an ideal way for beginning students and laypeople to explore theology.
