Contours of Christian Theology book series

The Contours of Christian Theology is a book series published with InterVarsity Press and is edited by Gerald Bray. The series is designed to treat to main themes of Christian doctrine in a way that "compliments the traditional textbooks but does not copy them." Each volume focuses on contemporary issues, and the goal is "to rework the orthodox evangelical position in a fresh and compelling way." ^[1]^ Technical vocabulary has been defined for the non-specialist reader, and the presentation "has avoided the extremes of academic style."


This series is intended for theological students at all levels, whether a Bible college, seminary, or secular college. The intent is to also make it applicable to ministers and educated lay-people.
